Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Phuket to Phi Phi Islands By Express Ferry including Lunch. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
This was an outstanding trip for both of us. The pickup arrangements were on time. The travel to and from the ferry wharf was smooth and the actual trip to Phi Phi Island was excellent. It's a MUST DO for anyone travelling to Phuket. Snorkelling amongst the tropical fish was the highlight for us both. Very memorable.
We just loved Phi Phi Island! Snokelling and feeding the fish, the crystal clear water. You could easily stay much longer.
Lunch was a buffet and just delicious.
Beautiful! I loved the snorkeling and definitely want to go back to the Phi Phi Islands.
Well organized and complete as possible.
I am happy satisfied with this tour. It was very nicely organized from start to end. Let me tell you what you may expect.
The previous evening of the tour the local tour company leave a letter at your hotel stating the pick up time next morning. During pick up the driver will put a badge/sticker on your shirt or arm which you should retain well as based on this you get all other facilities in the trip.
After they pick you and others the microbus goes to the harbour for the Ferry. Ferry leaves around 8.30am. You can sit inside in airconditioned room or outside in the sun. There are free soft drinks and some breads for all in the Ferry. At the begining you may feel lost seeing all those 300-400 people with different stickers. But do not be afraid. Later on the guide will tell the plan for each group using central microphone of the Ferry in english. The first group get off at Phi Phi Don (they will stay the night there). For others the Ferry contibues after dropping them for another 10-15minutes. oo the Ferry to Phi Phi Don takes around 1.5hr but then add 30 more minutes for this package people. So after that 15min you arrive near another island but ferry can not go to the harbour. So another small boat will come and drop you in the island. You change your cloth, take the snorkiling equipments and again the boat will take you to depp water for snorkiling. Those can not swim can stay in the island. After 1hr snorkiling in the nice clean water with colorful fishes come back to the island and take your lunch. Lunch has varities..Fish, chicken, Vegetable etc... Spend some more time in the island then again the boat will take you to the Ferry. Start your return journey following the same path. After picking others from Phi Phi Don it will pass by the James bonad island / Maya Beach and Viking caves. Not stopping there but you can take some pictures from the Ferry. After arrival ther microbus will take you hotel.
very great and enjoyable tour and the pictures are just amazing.
This trip was well worth every penny with breath taking views, great snorkeling, and a fabulous lunch,....the only problem is that most of the day is spent on the ferry ride to and from. That said I would like other people to know that they should contact Viator directly and arrange it so you can stay overnight on PHI PHI for one or two nights to really appreciate the island and the beaches and the place itself. On our trip both coming and going, there were hundreds of suitcases of people who did just that....
Loved this trip. So scenic and beautiful. Weather was perfect too and the lunch was very good
Phi Phi Islands are beautiful, lunch buffet was very good, bring an underwater camera for the snorkling...lots of fish and other sealife in crystal clear water, ferry ride was comfortable.
