    This tour was amazing!

    This is what the tour includes:
    To and fro transportation and pick up from your accommodation.
    A ride around the floating village not the markets
    Free entry to the elephant camp entry only
    A stop at a wood showroom where you can buy things carved out of wood

    Does not include paddle boats which take you through the floating markets bit - additional THB 150 per person or if you want a private boat THB 900 for one boat.

    There is not much commentary during the tour and you only find out your itinerary as you go along. We did not know we were going to the elephant park or the wood showroom - neither were necessary or added value to the tour.

    You can just think of the price of the tour as the transportation cost to the markets which is not so bad as it is about 1.5 hours away from the central Bangkok.

    This tour was very cheap which is why I chose it but my husband and I were so disappointed. We got picked up from our hotel in Bangkok and driven to another hotel to pick up the tour guide, he hopped in the van and the first thing he said was ok you pay an extra 200 Baht and we were like what for? He said because our hotel was out of the main area even though it was not even 10 minutes drive from the other hotels. We paid and drive around for another hour and a half before we left Bangkok. We arrived at the markets and then had to pay again to actually get on a boat to go into the floating markets, another 150 Baht each. We got in the boat and it was not what I expected at all! We were in a canal on a boat surrounded by other boats filled with other tourists who all looked so scared because the boats were running into each other. It was like a sardine can. Then we spent an hour and a half there and the tour guide says ok, now we go to elephant park. I was so confused because I booked a floating market tour not an elephant riding tour. We got to the park and it was terrible, the animals were kept in a bad condition and other people on our tour didn't book this either. Then after an hour the guide says ok now we go to wood carving centre again a surprise, this was actually ok. After half an hour our group got split up and we all went back to Bangkok on different buses. Everyone was so so confused. The actual market would have been good if we went with a different company but this company was THE WORST TOUR THAT WE HAVE EVR BEEN ON.
