It was a marvelous day. It will stay in our memory for ever because we saw great places in Phuket, but also thanks to our guide, Joy. Everything was as said in the tour description, but it was even better because Joy had a lot of attention towards us all the time. She explained us so many things and answered so many questions. She took so many pictures and sent them to us! Thanks also to our driver that has driven all the day. We recommend this tour, we really felt like special guests to discover the most beautiful of Phukhet in one day with kindness and no stress. We are also very happy with the video that Joy sent us the day after.

This was a spectacular activity. The snorkeling was fun with lots of colorful fish; the Thai lunch was delicious, and the beach was gorgeous. At first we weren’t sure whether we needed an English speaking guide, but we were glad we had one in the end. Great value for money

Superb day that put stars in our eyes! Joy our guide couldn't do enough with us and showed us amazing places. She took some wonderful photos and even created a beautiful video montage of our day for us. Activity to do absolutely!

Had an amazing time! Khao sok is beautiful, 500rai is stunning and we also really enjoyed the trek to Coral cave.

This was the highlight of our trip to Southern Thailand. Highly recommend.
