Very, very cool trip, the crew around the travel companion Alex were all very professional and helpful. The day before I had another tour to the phiphiislands because it was always crowded with tourists. That was not the case with the trip and last but not least we were on an island with a beach where there were only 3 boats. There I had a quad ride with a guide, among other things, to a lonely beach. The tour was definitely worth the money.

Brilliant trip from start to finish. Easy to book and communication was excellent letting me know what time pick up was. Mr Run who was our guide was absolutely impeccable and a fun knowledgeable guy. Lunch was amazing, probably the best lunch we've had in Thailand so far.

Loads of activity throughout the day. Lunch was great. The guides on the boat and the driver were super friendly and humorous.

Nice trip from the pick-up time to each end. Good food, good transportation, everything organized to each last detail.

Great an expectacular day with my family a very good lunch ..
