It was a last minute booking but it made the trip! Our tour guide was Sanjev and he was the best guide anyone could ever ask for
The team had the best communication over WhatsApp, very transparent and clear. They were also flexible with our schedule. The car we were picked up in was amazing, beautifully decked out and very comfortable Alphard with complimentary water, reclining seats etc.
Our first stop at the Hindu temple was serene, Sanjev ensured we knew what we were doing to respect the local customs. Gave us a short tour of the significance of the building and architectural history, before allowing us to roam around for about an hour
We were then taken to the silver leaf monkeys and that was the highlight! The monkeys were extremely friendly and everyone knew Sanjev very well including the monkeys! Sanjev helped us feed the monkeys, taught us to overcome our fear, and helped us take many photos. We were there for about an hour and it was great fun. Highly recommended for all travelers, there were families, couples, and solo travellers
Afterwards, we headed over to the Firefly tour. Before we went on, we had a lovely Thai dinner/snack right next to where the tour takes place. Great food, but even better views of the river during sunset (meal not included in the package)
We then went to firefly tour which was amazing. Sanjev ensured we had the best seats and even caught some fireflies and gave them to us to hold! Afterwards we went (not included in the package, had to pay extra for this) “Blue Tear” spotting. Aka glowing water, the bioluminescent algae on the water! Although the weather wasn’t perfect for it, we still had a great time with the boat ride, winds, and trying to see as much of the algae as we could
Finishing it off with a nice ride back to the hotel, Sanjev put on some Netflix in the car to ensure we were comfortable after a fun and tiring day
10/10 would recommend to everyone, locals, tourists. It was amazing!
