This was an amazing trip. The guide Aud was very, very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The day was jammed packed full and very good value for money. Lunch on the floating village of Panyee was a wonderful experience. A big up to the company too for commiting to providing the tour for us even although it was only myself and my husband that day due to it being the beginning of the wet season and very quiet, they still honoured or booking, our own VIP private tour! Also excellent correspondence throughout from start to finish. Would highly recommend this tour, it was the highlight of our holiday.

It’s one of the best day trip experience. Staff are friendly and polite, great food and really clean. I thoroughly enjoyed it, worth every penny. I highly recommend.

Really well organised. The crew on the boat were so friendly and helpful, and the main guy who was our guide (Doi, not Toy!) was brilliant.

Loved this trip/ everything was great. The longboat, staff, features of the trip, lunch and activities were excellent. Loved it

Brilliant trip, brilliant and knowledgeable guide, Ran
