    The tour was well organized, we were the first to pick up at the hotel out of a total of 9 people, the transfer time to the pier was approximately two and a half hours, even so we have enjoyed the tour from start to finish. What I liked the most is the long-tail boat tour to James Bond Island for the beautiful landscapes and the kayak experience. To repeat.

    The places that we visited are wonderful and worth the tour. The tour was in a group of about 50/60 people in a long-tail boat, a little bit crowded -it was high season/Christmas time. Except for James Bond island, for which we had enough time to visit and take pictures, the other stops were quite fast, due to a tight timetable. It is not considered to swim anywhere. You won't kayak yourself, but that is actually better, because you can fully enjoy the view and go into narrow caves. Definitely recommended, but don't expect a 'private' and peaceful experience.

    It was very well organised. Our departure time had changed and we were informed in good time. On the excursions themselves you had enough time to explore everything on your own. The guide always gave you tips on what to do and what to watch out for and when to come back to the boat. The schedule could not be fully adhered to due to a sudden rain shower, but here too the guide organized all the subsequent points in such a way that everything went smoothly. For the canoe tour at the end you should take small change with you, as the drivers do not get a fixed salary and are dependent on tips (100 baht recommended). The tour itself is a real highlight as you drive through the various caves of the Ta-Lu Islands. During the transfer back to the hotel, the driver even asked if we needed to buy something before we went back to our hotel and waited for us while we were shopping. All in all great!
