I really enjoyed the 2-day tour in Kao Yai with Lek. We were lucky and were able to see many animals, including bears, elephants, hornbills and gibbons. Lek took good care of us, was very friendly and very knowledgeable. My only complaint would be to maybe have some more flexibility in the itinerary. The waterfall didn’t have any water because of the dry-season, however we still were taken there. And we asked if we could go trekking more than was planned as the tour includes a lot of sitting in the back of the truck. For this Lek didn’t seem really open.

Amazing tour. Our guide, Lek, was so incredibly knowledgeable and provided all of the confidence we needed hiking thru the jungle while expertly explaining the abundance of wildlife we encountered (elephants, monkeys, hornbills, etc.). Our 10 and 13 yr old children will forever have this experience etched on their minds.

My guide, Jum, was superb in that she tried so hard to find different birds and animals for me to photograph. Sadly, we were too late to see elephants a couple of times. A bit disappointed that we didn't get to the bat cave. I declined the night safari as there seemed to be too many vehicles all racing in the same directions. Lunch was fine but quite basic. Only a couple of choices. Overall a good experience though.

We had two tours in the parks:

in Khao Yai with our guide Lek und in Khao Sok with our guide Bee.

Lek was amazing. He knows so much about

the parks plants and animals! We were extremly lucky to so many different animals. He spotted them all long bevor we did. Lek loves the nature, we felt it every day! His English is great so we could communicate easily. We had a private Tour with him and he was very flexible with the things to do. We highly recommend a tour with him.

In Khao Sok was Bee our guide. He also was Great and well informed , spoke Englisch very well and was extremly helpful whatever we wanted. He was very flexible too. At the end of our booked trip in the Park we had some spare time and asked him what to do. He had perfekt ideas and helped us to organize everything. We also recommend tours with him!
