Blue Elephant Tours provided a great no-riding elephant experience. Our guide Mr. Nat was very kind, hospitable and informative. We were able to spend time with several elephants including baby Valentine who is definitely a favourite!

This is the most amazing experience I’ve had in a very long time. The elephants are treated so well and all the carers of this sacred place are amazing. Deepest gratitude (and many thanks to the tour guide and driver)
