    Pahn was AMAZING. She had such an outgoing personality that just made you love her even more. She was funny and always liked to have fun but when we needed to do something she was serious and helped get the job done. At the end of the trip she felt like family and was very hard to say goodbye too. Would highly recommend to anyone❤️

    I had Tommy as my guide and he was amazing. He put up with all our questions, he was patient and kind. He showed us the best places to go and the best food to eat. I cant say enough nice words about him. He really made my trip incredible and i would recommend him as a tour guide to anyone. The organisation of Bamboo and the incredible work that they do for the elephant sanctuary, the school and the turtle is wonderful to see. The best part of the trip in my eyes was the Elephant sanctuary as the food was incredible but apart fro, that seeing those amazing creatures up close and personal was a dream come true. Thankyou for the great work you did in creating an unforgettable holiday for me!!!!! Especially thankyou to Tommy !!!! The greatest tour guide ive ever had

    I had a spectacular time during my trip. I really believe that my trip would not have went so well if I didn’t have Pahn as my tour guide. She was fantastic and really made the trip so much more enjoyable.

    Where do I begin!? This trip was absolutely incredible! 5 stars just isn't enough. Originally I wanted to do all the planning of our trip to Thailand so that I could be sure our trip was everything we wanted but I came across Elephants2Islands and it offered so much more! The tour group was small (about a dozen of us) which was perfect because it really allowed us to go more places and do more things that large tour groups can't manage as easily. Every Bamboo member we met along the way had such a wonderful spirit and each one brought something new and unique to the table. Tee shared stories about his experiences in the jungle, Bee bent over backwards to make my husband's birthday extra special once I let it slip it was his birthday (as if being in Thailand with elephants wasn't special enough

    I did the elephants to islands tour. Let me praise and brag. Kooga was our guide and I could list word after word about her and it would never be enough to truly capture this woman. She was remarkable, patient, so loving, fun and honestly wanted everything for us and she delivered! Wow!! I expected a "guide" but Kooga is not a guide. She is a teacher, a translator (lol), one of the kindest biggest hearts and a lifelong friend. My words are not near enough for her and everything she did. Every experience she handled perfect, made sure every need was covered, went above and beyond if we asked for things, set up extras and did everything with a constant smile! Remarkable woman!!

    I hadn’t planned on going when I did. It was sort of a last minute decision to pick my tour date for elephants 2 islands. I’m so glad I did. Because of Kooga, I think everyone else and I had the best tour bamboo could offer. I’m serious when I say she can do everything without a hitch. Great photographer. Exceptional guide (she doesn’t just show us where and what things are; she teaches us about them). Fun loving, organized and willing to listen to everyone’s questions.

    I cannot say enough positive things about this amazing human being....I've never met anyone like her, and I doubt I will again. It's fair to say that she had her hands full with our group, yet she was always patient, kind and thoughtful (and funny)...always making sure we were having the best time. I miss her dance moves already, and her sweet little smiling face. I hope you realize how much you (and Tang) touched us--we are still talking about it daily! God bless you over and over because you deserve it....and I cannot wait to see you again someday, because I will!
