First class tour. Guide and driver were excellent. Our guide (Tan) was very informative and he gave my husband, who is blind, a lot of assist ance. He even took some of our group to where they could have an elephant ride, even though that was not on itinerary. Nothing was too much trouble.
Trip lasted nearly 2hrs longer than advertised and was excellent value for the price. Met other Australians doing similar tour who only had a driver and were just dropped off at the different spots and were given no information at all.

This is a good way to familiarize yourself with the island.

Half day tour. Most of it was travelling with maybe about ten to fifteen minutes in each place. It could be improved by the tourist staying in the locations a lot longer. Not a bad tour but it has room to improve. If you want a quick tour then this is great for that plus we only had four people in the tour which was really good.

This was a good introduction to the island of Koh Samui and covered most of the major sights and tourist areas. The guide was also very friendly and good fun. Having said that he didn't actually tell us much background to the island itself.
More disturbingly, the tour includes visits to a monkey and an elephant show, both of which involved animals that were chained up and didn't look particularly well looked after. I really don't want to think about the "training" that they have to go through to get them to do the tricks that they do. Personal choice whether you want to watch and support this sort of thing I guess, but I must admit I probably wouldn't have gone on the tour if I knew it included this. Strange how Viator don't mention it on the tour highlights ??

Pick up was on time, but trip was lacking in information as to where we were on the island during the tour. We were told when we arrived somewhere the exact location but in-between we did not know where we were. No maps were supplied to follow the route. We were taken to an elephant and monkey show which was not on the itinerary and which we did not want to see. This wasted at least 1 hour when we could have been shown some other places of interest on the Island. Overall I would say you need to make customers more aware of where they are on the Island, as you say on your information "overview and orientation".
