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?

Driver was on time. Stopped allowed us to get something to eat. And was also ready when to bring us back at the given time. Painless process with no hassel. Worth the price. Highly recommended.

The driver attached to us was a wonderful guy. He help to make some minor adjustments to our trip and we had covered all locations as planned. The place was a wonder and was very impress by the owner of the Secret Art Garden whom had made things seem impossible to accomplished. Glad that I did not miss this wonderful place which is just 2.5hrs away from Bangkok. I must visit place of interest when you're at Bangkok.

Everything was perfectly arranged. Email contact and making a booking were both very quick and easy. Driver was waiting for us at the airport (we had an hour delay) and on the way back at the hotel reception. Everything easy and smooth, no hassle at all.

Great service! Our driver was on time (he actually patiently waited for us, as we were a couple of minutes late), and he drove safely and reliably throughout the trip. He had no issues whatsoever letting us take toilet breaks at 7/11 on the way to and from Erawan Falls. When we arrived at the park, he made sure to show us where we were supposed to go and waited until we were ready to go back to Bangkok. We paid him the outstanding fare at the end of the trip. I'd definitely book this service again when we're back in Bangkok!

Booking for the transportation is very efficient and easy. That gave us peace of mind in planning for the trip. Most importantly, there’s no hidden cost involved. Our trip was great and very much enjoyable. With the arranged transportation, everything is convenient and not rushing at all. Our assigned driver is very puntual and nice. He helped to plan the places to visit too so that we don’t spend so much time travelling here and there. He is patient, friendly and polite. Thanks for everything that has been arranged for us.
