Driver very prompt. Tour guide very good. Lovely relaxing day. Luck was great. We were told what time lunch was to be, and they came and got us and told us where to sit. Lunch was on the table waiting for us. Didn't have to wait to be served. Had clothing markets there, but need to barter to get good price.
Nice spot to live a beach experience - Excellent food - Speed boats badly protected against water projections, you take many showers before arriving - Nice day spent
Excellent guide accompanied us all day long. Relaxing hassle free trip. Enjoyed to the hilt!
the island was relaxing boat trip to and from was quick the guide was really helpful but the food was not very good but still enjoyed the day
Beautiful Island, but we were not aware that we would stop on pontoon for parasailing for approx 1 hour prior to going to Island. OK if you want to do this but we didn't. This made the stay on the Island short.
Great day out, the watersports on the Island are great. Friendly staff, plenty of food to go around, thoroughly enjoyed the day!
All the trips which I booked on Vitator were extremely well organised unlike some of the ones I booked locally via my hotel!. Was picked up on time in a private car and taken to the beach to catch the boat. I found the island to be very crowded as there were loads of other people doing similar trips. The beach and water were the nicest I saw in Pattaya. I was disappointed by the snorkling as there wasn't much to see - the coral has all been destroyed. Lunch was very good with a wide selection served family style - overall recommended and extremely good value
Meh. The Island was packed with tourists from India. It wasn't very private at all. They didn't serve us a lunch. Also, we had to wait at this dock thing in the middle of the sea for one hour so other people could go parasailing even though we didn't sign up for it. Seemed quite disorganized to me. I wouldn't recommend. Did take a few good snapshots though.
A bit disappointing at the end. I was left on island. Please refer to email sent in yesterday ref: 6428494 in conjunction with Elephant Trek which was fantastic. Thanks. Pat (Australia)
The lunch meal is difference from other although under same operator which is better.
On the way to Koh Larn we first stopped off at a sea platform to see if anyone wanted to do paragliding we then stopped off at a second platform to see if anyone wanted to to do sea walking, by the time we arrived at Koh Larn we only had 90 minutes until lunch and then 55 minutes after lunch before we left stopping off again on the way back to see if anyone wanted to go paragliding again !!! None of these additional stops were mentioned on the trip details.
Great tour,, pickup from our hotel cost extra per person as apparently our hotel was not on the "list of hotels" that this tour operator picks up from. This puzzles me as our hotel was not out of the way or secluded, it was quite reasonably close to the departure point for the tour. We were picked up in an air conditioned van, the itinerary actually stated that we would be picked up in an open air song tow taxi type vehicle. At the departure point, (not a pier, just a beach) we were not made aware of who our tour guide was, we thought that it was the driver of the van when in fact it was a lady and a man but they separated into 2 groups so there was a bit of confusion there. I thought and expected that this aspect of the tour could have and should have been organised much better but it didn't detract from the tour itself. Bit of a hassle getting on to the speedboat wading through knee deep water, I was under the impression that we would board the speedboat from a jetty or pier, but again, not a major problem. There were 16 people on this tour on the speedboat but there was only 3 life jackets visible and accessible. Seriously, this would be a MAJOR problem if the speedboat was to have an accident or heaven forbid sink. Perhaps there may have been 16 lifejackets but don't know where as there did not appear to be any storage cupboards on the boat. There was a huge scramble for inside seats on the speedboat ride out to the island and a bit of pushing and shoving and some nationalities were very unforgiving in their desperate scramble for an indoor seat. We are easy going and I was quite pissed off with the rudeness of some of the other tour participants. Lunch that was provided was on time at 12 noon and once we had worked out who our tour guide was, we were looked after whilst on the island by this lovely lady. Lunch was just OK, I actually expected a bit better and I did note on previous reviews of this trip that previous participants mentioned flies.
