We did the 2 hour tour (which isn't available at most other elephant farms). You get to ride the elephants bare back. There is a Mahout for each elephant in case so you're well taken care of. There's also someone per 3-4 people that will take your camera and help you take loads of pictures during your 2 hours. You start off going through the trek (make sure to put on bug repellent) then to the river where you'll bathe your elephant. Our elephants bathed us... and lift us up with his trunk - loads of fun and laughters. The river is quite rocky, so its best to where some sort of water shoes. We took our flip flops off because we didn't want it to float away and there were a few times I thought I might bleed as I stepped on something sharp. On our way back, we got to meet a baby elephant.
Overall, a great experience. We were kind of worried prior as we saw many reviews on other farms using sharp hooks to control the elephants. Our mahouts did have them but out of the 2 hours, not once did I see them use it.
