    This trip was amazing! Our driver was 15 min late but the car ride was really nice. When we arrived we were able to drink something and start the tour. Our tourguide was really nice. After our first tour we had a basic lunch with amazing view. After the lunch we got a new tour group and tourguide. we were allowed to feed the elephants and wash them. the only bad thing is that the last tour was a large group of tourists who sometimes did not listen to our guide.

    This review is not reflective of the actual WFFT sanctuary and what they do, this 1/5 is purely down to Klook and their incompetence as a tour provider. I would recommend going to WFFT and supporting their foundation but book through another agency or directly through WFFT themselves. Klook are incompetent and will disappoint and upset you. Through Klook I had booked round trip transfers and after waiting 50 minutes at my hotel got in to contact with both WFFT and Klook. WFFT found my booking but advised no transfers were communicated by Klook so there was no minibus ever coming. WTTF then organised my transfers. When Klook replied they lied saying there had been delays and a mini bus was coming soon. This was inaccurate and if I'd believed them i would never have been picked up. No one actually looked in to this by Klook, rather they gave me a generic response I missed about the first 30-45 mins of the tour. After calling Klook out on their initial lie, they responded saying they'd look in to it and get back to me. When no response was had by the time the tour ended and i still had no transfers back to my hotel, it was up to WFFT to help me get back to my hotel. The sanctuary itself is worth visiting but don't waste your time with booking through Klook. Their business practices are poor, they provide you generic responses and overall act as a middle-man without actually doing their job properly. It stressed me out and their lack of accountability is not what you need for a holiday. Do yourself a favour and get off this site NOW! Go book tours through another provider. Klook are not worth dealing with if you want things done properly and you appreciate a relaxing and well organized tour and holiday. Maybe as an Australian/Western traveller I'm use to things being done properly. If you're the same, don't use Klook.

    nice and informative tour. good restaurant and food as well worthwhile for sure
  • Monica Angelica 25 Dec 2018
    Giving this a low rating because of the lack of communication between Klook and the Foundation and myself: First: voucher was sent days after purchase and only after following up with Klook. Second: was not contacted regarding pick up details, unlike other activities purchased from Klook. I chatted with a Klook agent several days before the activity who assured me I will be contacted 24 hours before the activity regarding the pickup. 24 hours before arrived and I was not contacted. I once again chatted with an agent who told me to email Klook support and was again reassured that a reply immediately sent. Long story short, I was only contacted WHEN THE ACTIVITY WAS DONE and with no answer either. Such a disappointing customer service from Klook. Third: eventually I found that pick up time by the foundation is at 730. This was from their webpage. The information should have been on the Klook activity webpage as well. There was no contact either from the foundation. The driver arrived at the exact moment I was requesting the front desk to contact the foundation for me. Fourth: while checking google maps before booking the activity would have answered my query, the Klook webpage should have indicated that the trip takes almost 3 hours one way. Note: I did originally try to book directly with the Foundation but they did not reply, hence I went with Klook. While Klook is the middleman and I could have done more extensive research and dug deep into the Foundation’s website to get the information I was after, the point of using Klook is to make booking activities hassle free. Instead, Klook merely made me more anxious that the activity would not materialize and I would have to claim a refund, which sounds even more of a hassle. I will not book with Klook again even if all the activities I booked for Bangkok through them actually came through. There are other providers, which, while probably more expensive, will probably provide better service. The ride itself was uneventful. As for the activity, it was...okay. The half day tour is simply not worth it for an almost 6 hour journey. It was less than two hours not including lunch. Tour of the rescue center includes walking a dusty path, seeing two elephants and some animals only, not unlike what you would see in a zoo but with a guide. Bottom line, if you’re after elephants, the half day tour is a disappointment. Lunch was good and plentiful. The Thai guide was knowledgable and spoke English well. There was free bottled water for the tourists.

    It's a wonderful experience, I would definitely go back to this place again. I highly recommend this place Thank you Klook for taking us there without hassle.
  • Anna 14 Dec 2018
    It was such an amazing experience to see how WFFT has changed so many lives of so many animals. Definitely worth the trip to support their goals and be educated about elephant trekking and animal abuse in Thailand.
  • Abigael 6 Dec 2018
    Best experience ever! I very much enjoyed the activity and learned a lot. Highly recommended.
  • Daniel 14 Nov 2018
    Incredible experience, whether you are in Hua Hin or Bangkok! Thank you to Klook for making this possible.
  • Fiona 3 Nov 2018
    Highly recommend this tour. The elephants and other animals have mostly been save from the tourist industry. The reserve is a vast area which has been built to resemble the home habitat of the animals. The trip includes a tour round the reserve to observe the various animals, with the opportunity to feed the elephants. Lunch (which is good choice and quality) overlooks the reserve and elephants. Wonderful day and supports a very worthwhile cause.
  • Teng 30 Oct 2018
    I would suggest going for full day tour to get up close to the elephants! The tour was really informative, however don’t expect to spend a lot of time with the elephant as the bathing session and feeding session was quite short. Food was good buffet style. Overall it was a good tour!
