Important note

We don't offer any taxi service to cruel places like zoos, "tiger sanctuaries", elephant farms/resorts.

We also don't offer any taxi service to some so called "elephant sanctuaries". These are privately run companies for profit reasons. Even if some may be ethical, we simply don't have any first hand info. Although it is not easy to find reliable sources, we recommend doing your research carefully before getting to such places.

Rangers trying to protect various protected sites regularly get killed or wounded in Thailand. Poachers try to get to elephant babies by killing entire elephant families, to feed this market. "Ethical" claims done by businesses or various websites does, including big news sources are partly wrong; there is no enough evidence to proof these sanctuaries are ethical holiday destinations.

Our basic thumb rule; If you find a place where you can enter/stay without have to pay, that is an ethical place to take care of animals for sure! Try animal rescure organisations or why not see animals in wild in one of many national parks?

Overall the arrangement had been good. Nice, clean car which was on time for every trip. However, in view of the tourism business, there should be guides/drivers who are English proficient. Although our driver was very polite, accommodating and courteous, he could hardly communicate with us. We had to figure out all the places to visit not knowing much information about the venues.

Hope this will improve in our next visit. Khao Yai is a lovely place for a break away from urban places.

Tour operator's response

Thanks for your feedback.

Please note that these are DIY taxi service, not tours. Our drivers are not supposed to give any information about venues etc. Since these are DIY kind of service, our guests are recommended to google about attractions and get some info in advance. All our driver can do is to drop you off at the car park of the attractions and wait there until you are ready to head to the next, no guidance will be done.

We require all destinations to be decided before the trip so we can send crystal clear details to our drivers about the route plan. That's what we did for your trip too.

Our driver's only understand service related basics in English, such as to understand instructions about toilet/water/meal break, name of venues etc.

The services were great. Driver arrived on time at 7 AM and drove us safely and quickly to top of Doi Inthanon, stopping for us to take photos around scenic spots. Managed to achieve all the locations which I had set out to accomplish for the day.

We enjoyed the trip to Wat Thep Phithak Punnaram temple and Primo Piazzo. The other 2 visits to Chocolate Factory and Palio are satisfactory. Factory outlet shopping is so so only.

Maybe next trip we may explore other places.

Driver is very responsible and friendly. He is also a careful and reliable driver.

Thank you.

I have recommend your services to my friends. One of them is Mr *** ***. I think he has contacted you already.
