We spent a wonderful day in the company of the entire Siam Adventure World team. The organization was excellent (we were almost alone on each stage because the timetable allowed us to avoid the crowds), each destination was stunning! How to make it more practical? Air-conditioned vans pick you up in front of your hotel and take you to the boarding point, drinks, fruit and biscuits throughout the excursion, not to mention breakfast and lunch which were excellent! What can we say about Daniele, our guide who was great! Friendly, funny, multilingual (impeccable French) and with detailed anecdotes ☺️ An unforgettable day that I would recommend to anyone wishing to visit Phang Nga Bay!

The tour in the morning was great, as we were almost always the first there. Nobody can do anything about the jellyfish on the beach, but it is almost impossible to relax on the beach after the tour because of the noise from the bar and the boats. Otherwise a great tour and the lunch was great.

The crew were fantastic. Even though it was torrentially raining they still made sure we had a great time. Thanks!

The whole organization was very professional and the atmosphere was very pleasant and friendly.

Nothing short of amazing . Thrilling ride and serene locales . This was worth doing .
