This tour is a must, although clients should understand that this is not an energetic day. You are taken from your hotel to the dock, and then onto your cruise boat. Our guide on the cruise boat was funny and explained everything clearly to us.On reaching your destination you are assisted onto a canoe that has a guide who does all the paddling. So normally 3 to a canoe. We stopped for a swim stop at one of the islands then on to James Bond island. The islands, loads of them, are very photogenic externally and the caves, dark and narrow in places, bring you into the interior of the islands. This all adds to the fun. A good lunch is provided with drinks. All in all a great day out.
The photos and description of this tour really do not do it justice. It's so much more amazing than I could have imagined. It was raining when the van picked us up and was still raining when we go onto the boat so it didn't look like it was going to be a good day. We stopped at an Island first and even though it was drizzling, many people went onto the beach and made the most of it. I sat on the side in my rain pancho and admired them. Then the rain stopped, the sun came out and the areas that we explored were beyond amazing. To canoe into an opening in a rock and a few seconds later, come into this virtually untouched lagoon was breathtaking. Also the boat and canoe staff were great. They supply water and soda and lunch and are so accommodating. They are very organized as after the tour, they know exactly who goes into which van to be brought back to which hotel. Also, someone on the dock takes a photo of you and upon your return, the photo is placed into a frame that has been hand decorated with shells. I bought it as it was a cute souvenir.
Awesome tour. It was more touristy than adventure-like because the guides operate the rafts instead of the participants, but the caves were definitely worth seeing. While you go into the caves via small raft, you move to the different islands on a large, comfortable boat, and I almost enjoyed this as much as the canoeing because the surrounding scenery was awesome. Great opportunity for photos.
Tour guides were very funny, charismatic. The food was amazing as well. Very good tour. Had an enjoyable day.
What an amazing day!! Definitely a highlight of our time in Phuket. Our guide was very fun and informative, and the scenery was gorgeous. Do this tour!! You won't regret it.
Well worth the investment. Guides were informative and fun. Highly recomend to others.
Beautiful experience and unforgettable memories.
My 3boys had a awesome time swimming in the admanan sea which is part of the tour.
The lunch on the cruise was tasty and freshly prepared.
Well organized tour.
My third trip to Phuket, my second time doing this tour. I cannot speak more highly about doing this. The scenery is fantastic and it is amazing to venture into the 'hongs'. A really great day with very friendly guides and to top it off, lunch is probably the best thai food I have ever had.
I puchased this tour as a gift for my son (29) and his partner (24) on their recent trip to Thailand/Phukett. They rated it as the highlight of their holiday and said the staff were terrific. It clearly lived up to the reviews posted by others!
This trip was a great day out. The size of the group was perfect. The tour guides were very nice and knew how to make everyone have a great time.
I have nothing but praise for this tour. From the minute you step onto the boat the informative guide keeps you entertained and I would say that this trip was the highlight of our holiday. Each kayak has a paddler so all you do is sit back and enjoy the magnificent experience. The tight openings that you go through are well worth the beautiful lagoons you enter into. The acoustics inside the lagoons make a wonder place to hear all the insects and birds. I would highly recommend this tour and tour company. A+
