A group of over 20 of us went on the Cha Loi cave one-day tour. The guides were very attentive in helping us navigate the sometimes tricky passage ways. There was always someone to assist if you needed help. They were easy to identify in their t-shirts and you could tell they enjoyed sharing this experience with you. The temperature of the caves was so refreshing after an extremely hot few weeks. If you’re lucky enough to have a big group and do the bbq afterward, you’re in for a treat. Incredible staff! Enjoy! They were always smiling! They photographed the experience and I’m looking forward to some incredible photos.
