I was a little worried because the morning pick-up was delayed. The content of the application and the content of the tour company (Anda Adventure) were different. It was a mistake on the getyourguide side, but the tour company responded very kindly and organized the tour with the contents that I applied for properly. Overall it was a very good tour.

We had a great tour with our guide Keng. Great hike through the national park with many animals (monkeys, snakes, spiders, lizards) that Keng showed us all. Lunch was great and there was more than enough choice. The raft ride with fresh coffee/tea was great. This was freshly prepared on a fireplace in the middle of the river.

Sarawut is a brilliant guide, so much useful information and a very friendly person, even the drop of rain in the morning could not spoil the day.

bamboo rafting is amazing, would highly recommend. Make sure you wear a swimming gear as you'll get a wet bum!

Everything was fine, the guides were very friendly and courteous and the tour was a lot of fun.
