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?

1. Beautiful places you should go when you are in Bangkok. I have additional places (The Hobbit House), is nice and look like Hobbit houses with round and small door.

Total we visited 7 places...all are good and to take some pictures .

2. Transport and Driver. Car just nice for 5 person, comfortable with full air conditioning. Driver on time pick up us from hotel lobby, very experience and drive carefully, not fast and not slow and also patiently waiting for us for every place.

3. Best thing : NO HIDDEN CHARGE, what they Quote you what you need to PAY !

Anyway, we give driver some extra money

4. Communication with customer service very pleasant, fast reply and good explanation. Beginning, I worried when need to pay deposit, but after finished journey, driver only asking the balance.

Thank you, Thai National Parks, for the prompt customer service. We had a smooth, safe & fun 1-day trip from Bangkok to Khao Yai. Our driver, Mr Somkid, was very patient & accommodating. He is also helpful. He helped us with our bicycles at one of the attractions at Khao Yai & translated some English words to Thai when we had difficulties communicating with the locals. Price wise is also cheaper compared to other private hire cars companies in Thailand. Highly recommended!

We heard that there was too much rain there on 28th Aug, normally when rain starts, it doesn't last more than an hour or at max couple of hours. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your trip despite the rain. :)

Overall experience was good. Driver arrived on time at our place in Bangkok at 6am. Driving was smooth for the entire journey from Bangkok to Khao Yai, with a 20mins stop for breakfast and toilet.

Nearing the end of the trip, driver told us that he would charge overtime after 6pm, which does not include the time needed to drive to our hotel in Khao Yai (hobbit house). I had received confirmation from your coordinator that our day trip to Khao Yai would end at 6pm, after which the driver would send us back. This information conflicts with what the driver said.

We did not confront the driver with this as we were only missing out on 1 more attraction, and ended our tour at 430pm

Tour operator's response

Thanks for your kind words.

It is quite rare we get an issue like this, it is like you say, the service to continue up until 6 pm at any attraction and the drive back time to hotel after 6 pm is included in the price.

I am assuming the driver in question is new to the team and hasn't got the rules explained properly. We will investigate this in the morning.

We apologize for the incident. We will get in touch with you about how much you had to pay to the driver and of course we will refund immediately.
