Naiara and Mikel (October 2015, Spain) On 05/08/2016

We were planning to spend 3 days of our honeymoon in Khao Sok (13th-16th October 2015) and had looked on the internet for so long until we finally decided to book this tour with “Khao Sok Explorer”. We had already planned the activities and places we wanted to see, but the questions and worries we had about the transport timetable, weather for the activities, etc. were answered in detail and so kindly by Sylvain. He also gave us some extra recommendations about changing our itinerary and helped us with the booking in the hotel “Our Jungle House” .

We made a half day trek in the National Park and the 2 days tour in the awesome lake (canoeing, visiting the Diamond Cave, evening and morning safari boats, trail in the jungle …). The meals that gave us in the lake were abundant and delicious (they also had the detail to offer us a bottle of wine because of our honeymoon). Spending the night at the raft house was a marvellous and unique experience. The guide that we had during all the trip was very cheerful, loyal and attentive to us.

We are very grateful to Sylvain and all the team. We highly recommend this company! We are sure that making this trip (that was so special for us) with them was the right choice. Thanks for those unforgettable moments you made us live there.

We booked with Khao Sok Explorer after recommendations from friends. I took their advice and booked 2 nights in the Jungle House and 2 nights in the raft house. Sylvain organized everything and was highly professional, efficient, knowledgable and flexible. It couldn't have been more perfect (except with less rain!

Trip of a lifetime. As it was a bit quieter in March, I had the unique privilege to be taken around by Mathilde herself. The first week was focused on the lake. Words fail me to describe the positive shock experienced on these turquoise waters, mesmerised in the boat, canoeing, sleeping in raft houses, going on photographic (and in my case sonic) safaris with the local rangers, exploring the jungle and little known natural treasures such as caves... I deliberately wanted to taste the best of both worlds so I spent the second week in an eco friendly seaside resort booked by Mathilde, run by a wonderful couple (Sino-Thai lady and German gentleman) versed in green issues, meditation and concerned about the wellbeing of local people (amongst other things they have set up charities to save stray dogs and support the local orphanage dedicated to victims of the Tsunami, they also provide free English classes etc). In fact the whole experience felt ethical and the people met on the trip where just inspirational, far from the cliches of a country saturated with tourism. I feel lucky to have discovered Thailand through this gateway and warmly recomend the team here, they will lead you where you need to go and share their knowledge wisely.

We arranged The Zen Explorer Tour with Mathilde. We went in May 2013, highly recommend this time of year, no crowds. The trip was so personal and amazing. Our guide Joy was the best, we learnt so much about the animals, plants everything. Starting on the lake was just great. I would so highly recommend booking with Khoa Sok Explorer. Get a small group together, would be lots of fun. I have written a report on Khoa Sok National Park reviews. Thanks so much again to Joy, and Mathilde and the team. Highlight of Thailand!

2jours/1nuit : inoubliables !
Sans doute, la meilleure activité à faire dans le coin.
Si vous aimez la nature et prendre le temps pour la vivre, vous êtes bien tombé.
Notre guide, Paul, était au top ! Vraiment sympa, drôle et captivant.

Pour les décors, c'est simple, je n'ai jamais vu un lac et des "falaises" aussi majestueux auparavant. Ça valait vraiment le détour !!
Le lac était un instant de pure bonheur et de rafraîchissement.
La cave était aussi intéressante que fraîche, ça fait plaisir :)

L'hébergement, rustique mais très propre et confortable. Les bungalows sur l'eau, c'est une expérience à ne pas louper. Et les repas ont été tout simplement divins.

Enfin, pour les animaux, y'a eu pas mal de singes et beaucoup de sangsues durant le hiking :) Pour le reste, on a surtout vu leurs empreintes.
Mais bon, c'est le jeu avec la nature "sauvage".

Encore bravo à toute l'équipe et merci 1000x à Sylvain pour tous ces conseils. Son aide et son efficacité nous ont bien aidés.

There are so many Khao Sok tour operators to choose from, but I absolutely recommend this company! Mathilde put together a superb tailor-made tour for us and was always quick to answer questions and make suggestions. We spent three blissful days in the Khlong Seang wildlife sanctuary with just the hornbills and gibbons for company. Our guide Mr. Kiem was extremely knowledgeable and professional and really brought the forest to life. We used lots of tour agencies in four months of travel through Asia, but none gave us better service than Khao Sok Explorer. Thanks so much for the special memories!

High recommendation to Khao Sok tours!! I recently went on one of Mathilde's tours with my friend and tour guide, Mr Noi. A well organised tour, great accommodation and catering, excellent combination of guided time in longtail, canoe, walking and free time to soak up the environment and the culture. Don't hesitate, just book! Pam Rodda

Excellent service from Mathilde - highly recommended! (Stayed 2 nights 23/24 February 2011) Mathilde booked Paradise Resort (treehouse) for us because our first choice of Baan Khao Sok was full. The surrounding scenery and tree house room were lovely - clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom, efficient fan and mosquito net. Baan Khao Sok was only 2 minutes walk and we loved their gardens by the river, their delicious food and very hospitable family. We arrived in the morning by taxi from Khao Lak, and Mathilde met us at reception and advised us on our planned walk in the National Park. We had a wonderful time walking to the first waterfall and a little beyond, before we returned. After lunch, our guide collected us to take us for an elephant treck - a first for us and really terrific. The next day our guide collected us after breakfast to drive us to the dam for our full day lake trip on a long tailed boat. The scenery was incredible - just stunning. We also visited the wonderful Diamond Cave, then we had lunch at the raft houses where the food was exceptional - including an enormous freshly caught fish, a curry, rice, Thai omelette, fruit etc. We spent a long time exploring the lake on a canoe, then swam, before meeting our guide again for the return boat trip and drive back. The next day we left for Ao Nang/Krabi by minibus from the Paradise Resort - Mathilde had even booked our minibus tickets - and all her arrangements were excellent and the guide she provided us was very good indeed.

Thanks to Mathilde for the good planning and her help throughout the entire trip! We had some bad luck with the weather - unexpected rainfall required flexibility within the perfectly well planned schedules. Mathilde was well organized, helpful and extremely cooperative, Nopporn was an excellent and highly motivated guide with great effort to present land and culture as authentic as it gets. Baan Khao Sok with its Tree top bungalows is a lovely place to stay. We should come again and enjoy more of that great place and the wonderful landscape. Thanks to both of you and all the best!
