If you don't mind being thrown about in a safari jeep you will defiantly have a great day, there was people of all ages on our trips and everyone enjoyed it. The drivers who run the trip were great, the banter they had between each other made for great entertainment. Excellent trip if only all our trips in Thailand was as good as this!
This tour was amazing . I would recommend this one over and over thanks.
This was absolutely the highlight of our trip. Certainly not for the faint-hearted. All done very professionally, with huge amounts of fun and some hefty doses of adrenalin! Remarkably cheap, as the tour lasted pretty much the whole day. A great way to see the jungles around Koh Samui and a side of Thailand not seen from the resorts. Highly recommended.
Do not miss this. Excellent value for the money with an excellent guide.
I was disappointed at the start of the tour because it was a different tour company and you had to pay extra for the elephant trekking which was included on the last tour company used.
After I go over the disappointment of it not being the same as last time I really enjoyed the trip and lunch was of a lot better standard than before
Well done boys my Dad and i had a great time..
excellent day, great fun, great lunch, great views, well worth it.
shame the mountain tracks have been replaced by roads. but still a good day out
As always very good value. An interesting day and pleasant lunch Worthwhile
Most enjoyable day, covering all the specified itinerary. Our guide was very knowledgable and had a good sense of humour. Excellent lunch in a very remote lodge, covered some very extreme off road jungle terrain, driver was very capable. well worth while trip. Thanks.
The tour was good and the lunch was amazing..right in the middle of the forest...its really stuff you can't see without a proper 4x4 car.
The day started off on the wrong foot with our guide deviating from the planned day by taking part of our group for an elephant ride. We were left to kill 40 minutes with nothing to do while the others went on the ride. Not impressed! We then visited a couple of waterfalls which weren't too dramatic given that it was dry season. This was followed by a visit to see the mumified monk. So far not too impressive. The day improve dfrom that point as we ventured into the jungle and off the beaten track. We had the opportunity to see Koh Samui from all sides and had a delicious lunch at a remote restaurant in the jungle. Delicious! The vehicle is very basic - wear your hat and sunscreen as there's no shelter but made the day more exciting. Well worth the effort!
Great tour, took in the side of Samui that cannot be viewed without a serious off-road vehicle. In a group of 8, we 2 were the only english speakers, all else being German. Guide was very patient and explained everything in both German and English for us. His language skills and comedy were excellent.
I booked this trip for myself and my 7yr old son. I wasn't completely sure as to what was all entailed as the description was fairly brief and general but based on the previous reviews, I knew we'd have a great time. For 2 days prior, we rented motorbikes and explored the island on our own so I was a bit worried that the tour would include places we'd already been, but this was not the case.
The trip was nothing short of amazing. My son really enjoyed it and so did I! We visited 2 different waterfalls and we wore our swimsuits on the off chance that we'd be able to swim somewhere, as the beach at our hotel was unsuitable for swimming. The 2nd waterfall had a wonderful little spot for swimming!
We also stopped to see the mummified monk and the Secret Garden, two places I wanted to see but hadn't yet so that was nice. The drive up the mountain for lunch was breathtaking as you could see the lush foliage all around, lunch was suburb as well! Continuing up the hill and then back down was a bit heartstopping at times! We had a blast! A few nice touches included the driver pulling over periodically to grab various native fruit from the trees for us to try and also the beautiful flowers he got us at one point. It seems like this will be a long day trip but with all the places you get to see the day ended up not being long enough! I definitely recommend this trip, maybe take it in the early part of your holiday then spend the rest on a motorbike going to the places not included in the tour!
We really enjoyed the trip; it was great fun, but at times felt they went a little 'close to the edge' - literally. For fun, they often backed right up to sheer drops and slammed brakes on at the last minute. It was great fun, but very scary. Having said that, our driver was excellent at driving and very courteous. The only other problem was that we were the only two English people amongst a group of eight Germans, so we felt a little left out when our guide was speaking, but there isn't much that you can do about that, as we realize that far more Germans were holidaying in Koh Samui than English or Australian.
It was fun but very bumpy. Went to some different places such as waterfalls, temples etc.

Nothing remarkable about this modest tour which takes in a few local tourist sites including a couple of small waterfalls and a probably abusive elephant adventure ride, but still fun bouncing around the back of a small pickup along tiny rough backroads of a mountain plantation. Tasty lunch in a remote tiny jungle restaurant.
The guides english was very poor and towards the end of the day he simply decided to join the second jeep of people so we were stuck on a jeep with a driver and no one spoke english at all. This tour isn't as exciting as it sounds. You spend most of the time driving on tar roads and there is only a little off-road but it was a good way to see the island. Lunch was in a little hut high up in the mountains and the food was pretty good.
Majority of the other tourists were german, so the tour guide spoke majority in german - even though we're english speaking. The tour itself, the places we went was quite nice
I was the only English speaking participant on the tour. It was average with a lot of driving and limited time at the venues. Overall, the tour was enjoyable, however not a home run. Be prepared for an open air jeep ride, lots of walking, average waterfalls, average lunch. In all a nice overview tour, but nothing to write home about.
Swimming in the waterfall is the highlight of this trip. Too many people in vehicle very hit and nit particulary comfortable.
The day that we did our jeep safari it was raining heavily and the roads were slippery and wet and the jeep was slipping and sliding all over the place and that made the jeep tour great fun!!!! The guide was crazy and kept us laughing throughout the whole experience! Yiu get taken to 3 view points to see the views of the island which are stunning. The lunch was delicious. If it hadn't been raining and so treacherous I don't think I would have enjoyed it half as much!
A LOT OF HAGING AROUND WATING UNTIL WE GOT GOING. ONLY GOT UP TO THE 4 X4 DRIVING AFTER LUNCH WHICH WAS QUITE ENJOYABLE. A BIT DISSAPOINTING TO BE HONEST
the tour guide is excellent. He did a good job, but the 4WD jeep was more than like a pick up truck. Sitting in the rear bench whole day long was kind of torture.
Trip wasn't really what I was expecting. It's great if you're looking for a tour with nice views and waterfalls but it wasn't really exciting or "close to the edge" as others have put it.
I was disappointed from the tour guide who did not explain too much unless was asked questions. Most of the tour was on a regular road where I could rent a car and go by myself. Only small part of it was on a road suitable only for a jeep.
