Best experience in Thailand
This monkey training school was one of the best experiences we have had in Thailand, which is no mean feat given this is our third extended break we have had here. The monkey training demonstration extremely interesting (and very cute). Interacting with the monkeys and learning about their mannerisms is an experience we shall never forget. To say the two hosts were accommodating would be an understatement. They were extremely friendly, invited us to stay for a meal, and gave us several reccomendations of activities to do within the Surat Thani region which were all fantastic. The region itself is much less tourist centric than other parts of Thailand that we had visited. This made for a much more genuinely Thai experience. Overall it was an excellent experience and we hope to return soon.

Wonderful time!
Arjen and Somjai were fantastic. Their hospitality made us feel at home. Learning more about the monkeys and how/why they are trained was a once in a lifetime experience.

Great & good experience with animals & host
To see how much love you can give to dogs an monkeys without denying that they're animals kept for the use of man. If you don't like dogs it's not a good place to be, cause there are a dozen of them. The least I liked my girlfriend talking whole night threw with our host while I became too tired.

Very Welcoming and amazing place to go visit.
Their hospitality was amazing and the monkeys were a very fun change from all of the other home stays. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a different but fun and relaxing time.

Amazing visit of the First Monkey School
. After having initially ended up at a different one we found 'The First Monkey School' and a first it deserves! We were completely taken aback by the organisation and ethics of the place, and the genuine enthusiasm and eagerness of both Somjai and Arjan to share their profession. We learned a lot about the character of monkeys an how to approach and play with them, how they are being taught and ultimately love to demonstrate to you how to get a coconut out of a 15m high tree! Its also an amazing experience to have a monkey climbing all over you, very different from what I imagined! Further we learned about coconut harvesting, peeling, cracking, drinking, eating and how to extract the purest oil out of them. We were only there for 3 hrs and felt we could have stayed there all day!! All in all an amazing experience to meet these people and sofar to be rated one of the best during our holidays in Thailand.
