A Recent Review of this tour

It was our second visit with Chintana and once again she did a super job showing us the elephant conservation centre. She answered our numerous questions about the elephants and the thai culture. She took us to a lovely restaurant for lunch and helped us select a variety of thai food according to the different taste for spices in our group. Thanks!
