The tour was really great, the activities and places are beautiful and well organized. Feeding monkeys was a very nice experience. The James Bond island is worth visiting but be aware of possible crowd. Kayaking was a beautiful experience too and the lunch at the floating market unforgettable and unique. The guide was also very kind, we would have though appreciated to get more information about the spots we visited, English of the guide wasn’t very good.

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.

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

Very good tour, there were 3 of us and the island was not overly crowded. Super organized

Kim was amazing, I hope to see her again on my next visit to Phuket
