We came to ride the elephants, but after finding out it was going to cost us ($110 each for 30 min) we decided to just feed them. Even this was expensive! I would recommend going to Bali Zoo for an elephant ride. Good day out,...More

It's not that it wasn't a great tour, you just feel bad for them. I don't believe these animals are mis-treated, I think they are well cared for, but you realize you don't need to to be riding them. 15 minutes is probably good enough...More

Suggested by our driver as a closer and more intimate alternative to the heavily promoted Elephant Safari Park, we were pleasantly surprised by the tranquility of the surroundings and the friendly staff. We had a wonderful experience riding on the elephants which were healthy and...More

Part of an organised private tour with Bali Golden Tours. Superb experience. Very well run operation. Great elephant trainers, Sun was particularly entertaining driving Andrew the elephant. Children 10 and 12 absolutely loved it. Lunch was a bit average but adequate. Well worth doing for...More

If you care about the welfare of the animals at this horrible place then don't go here! It's seriously not worth the money. You will leave in tears knowing that you have given money to these people...
