A really good tour that is great for Day one. It gives a person who is visiting Phuket for the first time a great introduction to the city, as well as, visiting some very nice sights. Cashew farm was not too bad, and if you love jewelry (like I do), then the trouble with the Gem place is limiting what you buy!
It was informative but we were rushed through everything and didn't have a chance to really enjoy what we stopped to see due to lack of time :(
great value for money
could be better

U GET WHT U PAY
well worth the $11! we visited karon viewpoint, laem promthep, wat chalong, a cashew factory, and a jewelry store. i know some people complained about the shopping but i enjoyed the cashew factory. the people in the jewelry store were annoying and followed you around though. our guide june was great as well.
Our guide, Woody, was a barrel of laughs as her showed us his island of Phuket. Very cheap tour - well planned out and we even enjoyed the jewelery shop!
it was value for money. Do tip the driver and guide for their efforts!
City Tour should be called "Island Tour". We travelled around the spectacular South part of the Phuket Island, to Kata, Karon and Old Phuket Town plus others. Very informative and funny tour guide (we even learned 3 Thai words). Cashew nut factory and Buddist Temple were interesting, however this was dampened by the Gem factory, which was a huge "forced sell" to the tourists, as sales staff literally followed you around the gem show room and gift shop, trying to get you to purchase very expensive jewellery and gifts. This spoiled the tour. A visit to the Big Budah would have been good, however as this was not finished, we only see this from a distance. Great tour to see Phuket Island and get your bearings.
Even though this tour was inexpensive, my partner and I thought it a waste of time. The only highlight was visiting Wat Chalong, which is a beautiful temple complex. We didn't realise that we would be taken for most of the tour to shopping areas for jewellry, tourist memorabilia and food products.
A very good short tour of the city, well executed and the local tour guide was brilliant with excellent knowledge of the city.
