It was great. Hotel pick up was early and our guides Nim and Nun were excellent. There was just a bit of a 'huh? wtf?' moment when we're about to be transferred back to our respective hotels. There was one driver who refused to let other passengers in his huge van and took only 1 passenger, leaving the rest of us, including our guides, totally dumbfounded as to why he did that. In the middle of drizzling rain and darkness settling in we waited for more than 30 minutes for the new van to pick us up. I hope this feedback reaches that driver.

Fantastic day. The guides are extremely friendly and helpful, making sure we all got some great photos. We couldn't get to a couple of the islands due to it being off season and some high winds but we had a wonderful time. The sunset at the final beach was like nothing I've ever seen. Great bbq too. Highly reccomend!

Everything was great!! From the hotel pick up, shuttle to the boat, tour on the boat and explanations from the crew, fruit, water and lunch were great and definitely recommendable

The tour guide was great! Was very informative and went above and beyond. Definitely exceeded my expectations!

Pleasant day with a friendly and very attentive guide! One of my best experiences in Thailand!
