I was disappointed in this tour, given that I've had the same tour last year arranged by another company, the difference is huge, this one was not organised properly at all, the tour guide didn't care about anything, no information was given to the people onboard, no one knows what was expected next, no safety measures were taken or explained, even when stopping for snorkeling or swimming, the proper head-count of the people on board was not taken seriously!, we could have easily left some people behind in the open water!
Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback. We have spoken to the supplier concerning your experience - and as their reply was very lengthy, we just want to summarize a few points below, for the benefit of present and future passengers.
Safety information for this tour is provided in an information sheet before the tour begins. The sheet is required to be viewed and signed by each passenger before they are allowed to take the tour. The company also wishes to assure all passengers that a proper headcount is always done for their tours, though they do try to keep it from impacting the tour experience by doing it as more 'behind the scenes' work.
We are told that there were two guides on board that day to accommodate multiple languages being spoken, and the second guide was not an employee of the company operating our tour - but a private guide hired by another group. That may have accounted for any perceived aloofness by that guide, as he was tending to his customers.
We do apologize that the tour did not live up to your expectations, but we did want to respond to the complaints concerning safety - as all of our tour operators do take safety issues very seriously. We hope this response provides useful information for yourself, and other passengers, and we do hope the rest of your holiday was excellent.

Good trip if you have only a short time in the area. The trip takes you to a bunch of different stops for swimming, snorkeling, beaching etc. Lots of people and tourists at each destination.

If you want snorkel great time. Otherwise just going to various swimming holes and the lunch was disgusting....not the Thai food you would expect. Who wants to eat spaghetti while sitting on a beach. I recommend the James Bond canoe tour....much better experience.

The itinerary is awful we spend just 30 minutes in the most beautiful place of this tour, but then almost 2 hours on dirty and ugly beach

The islands are dirty. The bath rooms in the islands are horrible.
The food served is below average.Waste of money and time.
