Rayner McKenzie review 13 Sep 2015
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
Cooking a Thai meal with a Thai family in their home and spending the afternoon and evening with them, learning all about the Thai culture and food. Wonderful experience.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
Make sure you have good walking shoes for the trekking to the hilltribe.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Yes, we did feel it benefited local peoples all our guides were locals and we bought gifts directly from the hilltribes. We felt we really supported conservation in the rainforest in Khao Sok and at the Elephant Nature Park as the money spent there went directly back into supporting the elephants.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
Overall, we had the most amazing vacation and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the "local" experiences we had, from giving alms to the monks to riding through rice fields on bikes. We really enjoyed meeting real Thai people and seeing different sides to Thailand.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are absolutely delighted
with your comments and thrilled that you and your family enjoyed the trip as much as
you did, especially the cookery afternoon and the elephant park, that I know were the
highlights for you.
You have been a pleasure to work with and I hope to speak to you again in the future.
Thank you again.
With very best wishes from the team!
