We had a really great day at this trip. The representative Lila was very friendly and knowledgable. We got some amazing photos throughout the day and really enjoyed the snorkeling. As you get on the boat in the morning, there is a photographer who takes pictures, at the end of the day you have the chance to by the photo which is printed on a nice wooden canvas for only 150 thb. I would highly recommend this tour.

Very nice tour and inexpensive tour to see "The Beach", the other vantage points were also very nice for me but not a priority, you could swim and snorkel, nice and funny guide, free drinks on the speed boat with coke, water..., a A great trip that I would recommend

Eady to book, excellent communication throughout; received confirmation straight after booking with pick up time. Great guide. Well organised trip. Packed lots in, visiting several other islands as well as Phi Phi. Good value for money.

if you're looking to swim or snorkel you need to be a pro as it mostly takes place in mid-sea. otherwise overall a great experience and a must do trip

Our guide PK was hilarious, the route was amazing! Love every minute of it!
