Terrible, nothing luxury about it
, Jun 2019
This tour was horrible. I did a different Phi Phi Island tour last November and it was incredible, so I wanted to take my children but what a big mistake. This boat was extremely overcrowded I leterally had someone sleeping on my shoulder. My son was pushed out of his spot, basically sat on top of by another tourist. We were treated like a bunch of cattle being rushed off the boat and shouted at about the rules of the tour. The ‘lunch’ was horrible with a huge cockroach on the table lucky I brought some croissants from the buffet for my children. The first island is over crowded and we stayed there for 2 hours basically being expected to spend money at the restaurants. The stop at Phi Phi was at the shopping part of the island and if this was my first visit to Phi Phi Island I would have thought the island was not pretty at all, the last time we were dropped off at a picturesque spot, it was incredible. It was more like a shopping tour than an island tour. The snacks were non existent other than a bucket of cookies and the refreshments were a bottle of coke with a plastic cup, try pouring or holding it whilst the boat is full speed. The tour was disheartening as I felt I got to experience real Thai people and their kindness the last time where as this one was just a money grab. When we were dropped off at the start of the tour we were give bracelets relating to the tour we were on and told to come back in 50 minutes. There were hundreds of people there and it was horrible sitting there being pushed around for almost an hour. Then to be put onto a boat carrying twice as many people as necessary I just wanted the day to be over. Disappointing, not luxurious, and a terrible waste of visiting beautiful islands to be shown the worst parts. If I wanted to shop I would go to a shopping centre.

We booked this tour in order to avoid crowded beaches, but instead we got what the boat crew felt like, completely different itinerary. We were picked up from our hotel early in the morning and were brought to the port where we spent too much time as they were selling us their products. The boat was overcrowded and some people have not booked through the viator but some local agency. Overall, it was not bad, but it was not the tour we had booked. I was disappointed with Viator.

Horrible experience.

Phi Phi Islands Trip by Ferry Yacht from Phuket | Feb 2020
I was going to leave a 3 star review but when i reflect back on the experience it only deserves 2. I payed for Gold experience but really it was quite a joke the whole day. The crew seemed over worked, stressed and even rude and abrupt . My voucher stated that “ this tour/activity will have a maximum of 50 travellers “. This was very misleading as it’s true that the Gold seating area was for 50 passengers however all deck areas were shared and there were well in excess of 300 onboard and no priority entitlements were exercised ...everyone was herded like cattle off and on the boat ... even the elderly. Lunch was served onshore and because i chose to snorkel my allocated meal time was after everyone else in my cabin class had eaten and i was left with a buffet virtually empty. I kept thinking they would top up the food but no that wasn’t the case. The snorkelling experience was another disappointment not because of the poor quality of the coral and visibility but because we were virtually dropped off in a very overcrowded area no bigger than 100 x 300 metres which was shared with passing local tour boats taking passengers to and fro through the snorkelling area. There is also a 400THB national park charge to snorkel . # Don’t recommend this tour.

OK Trip but a bit plain

Day Trip to James Bond Island by Premium Speedboat from Phuket | Nov 2019
The boat trip was mostly sightseeing such as taking photos but not too much actions. We only did swiming at one island. The hotel pick up took almost 2 hours in the morning. The island tour was a bit more boring comparing to the island trip to Phi Phi island. The tour organizer was trying their best to entertain people by providing view points, water and snacks. James Bond island was indeed rather pretty and worthwhile to see. The toilets on many of these islands were quite dirty. Bring loads of cleaning wipes and tissue paper.

Phi Phi Island Tour

Phi Phi Island by Premium Speedboat including Buffet Lunch | Aug 2019
Me and hubby were picked up from our hotel and headed to our meeting point which was an hour away. Arrived 8.15am and we were then given coloured bands to wear around the wrist. At around 10am we then called to go into this room. A young lady by the name of Lily introduced herself to us and gave a very informative talk on the tour & then we boarded the speedboat at 10.45am. We were very happy when we realised that Lily was our tour guide on our speedboat. Lily introduced all the crew aboard the speedboat. There was Mr. Jack Sparrow (driver) Mr Jackie Chan (photographer) & 2 deck hands names Espresso & Cappuccino. It was hilarious. There was free snacks & lots of drinks on the speedboat. We visited Phi Phi island sites like Monkey Beach & Pileh Lagoon for swimming, snorkelling & sunbathing and had buffet lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch when we got back to the speedboat we realised that one of the propellers were not working but Lily our tour guide was very poise and had it all under control. She then had to ask some of the passengers from our speedboat to get aboard other speedboats the reason being with only 2 propellers working not 3 the speedboat had to be a little lighter. We were then down to only half the numbers on the speedboat. I did swim after a lot of encouragement from Lily but did not snorkel. My hubby Stephen did both swimming & snorkelling and he said he loved the snorkelling he said underwater looked as beautiful as a fish aquarium with all the different types & colours of fish he said it was magnificent. Lily was extremely helpful & a really lovely lady to talk to. She took time to chat with everyone on board and made it a very enjoyable experience. Lots of pics were taken by Mr Jackie Chan. We were then told that we could buy the photo package, all photos would be put on a USB and delivered to our hotel. We did buy the package and true to their word it was delivered to our hotel. The photos & videos are amazing. Thanks Lily and all the crew aboard the speedboat we had an incredible time & would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to do it.

Speed boat ride & swim

Phi Phi Island by Premium Speedboat including Buffet Lunch | Jul 2019
This was more of a speed boat ride with swimming and food. Tour guide was speaking English but shared very little information. The non-English speaking guide was more informative but not useful to English speaking people. Snacks were good but meal was average. Extra equipment were sold at very high rate which weren't ideally required during the trip. The trip was already over priced but wasn't worth the money.

Amazing Tour!!

Day Trip to James Bond Island by Premium Speedboat from Phuket | Jul 2019
Even though the weather didn't cooperate (was in Thailand during off-peak rainy season) - this was still a fantastic tour!! The guys at Sealion (Speedboat company) took very good care of us!! The islands and views are breathtaking. The timing at each stop was just enough - however I wish I had more time at Ko Panyi to explore after lunch (which was delicious by the way)!! My favorite activity by far was canoeing around Hong Island. I definitely plan to book this tour again when I go back!!

Tour Was As Described

Day Trip to James Bond Island by Premium Speedboat from Phuket | May 2019
This tour went to the places prescribed. The highlight of the tour for use was canoeing at other nearby islands (the canoe guides were excellent as was the scenery). James Bond Island was interesting albeit crowded. The lunch/shopping experience was OK. The boats had dual 150 HP outboard motors that were very loud for those seated in the back (ears were ringing for days); get a seat up front if you can!

Took us on the wrong tour

Phi Phi Island by Premium Speedboat including Buffet Lunch | May 2019
I was so excited about taking this tour. It was one of the main reason I booked the trip to Phuket. On the day of the tour, they arrived to pick us up early morning. Along the way they stopped and picked up several other people. As we were riding, my group started talking to others who were going on the tour. When we arrived to the destination 1 hour later, everyone was talking about they were going on the James bond tour. I asked the host and he said that we were going on the James bond tour. I explained to him that I did not book that tour and that I was suppose to be going on the Phi Phi island tour. The host called the person that put the tour together and gave me the phone. The man on the phone informed me that they accidentally booked the wrong tour for my group and they would be happy to take me back. I was very upset because it took us an hour to get here and he didn't offer us any type of incentive for incorrectly booking us. So that would be 2 hours of my time wasted. He said well you can stay on this tour and I will refund the difference. He didn't offer a discount or another day to take us on the correct tour or anything. My group decided to stay on the tour because we were already there. the first stop on the tour was terrible. The water was murky, the sand and beach area was dirty. The whole reason I wanted to go to Phi Phi island was to see the beautiful beaches. I was very upset and disappointed by this tour. When we returned, I re-booked this tour with another company and it was great. I was definitely disappointed by the service and the tour. I will never use that company again, and feel a little uneasy about using this website.

Overall a great experience with fantastic photo opportunities!

Phi Phi Island by Premium Speedboat including Buffet Lunch | May 2019
The car arrived on time to pick us up and we travelled from Karon Beach to the Boat Marina which took about 30 minutes or so. The car was large and air conditioned. Upon arrival at the Marina, we signed in and there were snacks and drinks available. We waited quite a long time (around 45 minutes) for everyone to arrive and then had a briefing before we set off. Our tour guide Lily was absolutely fantastic - she spoke great English and was energetic and funny, always playing with the guests which everyone seemed to enjoy. The speedboat was good and there were lots of drinks and snacks provided throughout the journey. There's space to sit outside or inside on the boat. We visited three islands - Phi Phi Don (where we had a great buffet lunch and they catered for Vegetarians - nice island with crystal waters and nice little shops and beaches), Phi Phi Leh (time for swimming and snorkelling) and we finished with Khai Island. To be honest, we really were so disappointed to be spending 1 hour and 15 minutes on Khai Island - it was tiny and EVERYTHING was overpriced with not much to do. We thought it would have made more sense to spend more time on Phi Phi Don island (we were only there for 1 hour) and only have around 30 minutes at Khai Island. Khai Island was horribly touristic and we couldn't wait to get away from it. Overall, I would recommend this tour as a great day trip for couples and families that love to swim and take photos as the islands are just gorgeous. Maya Bay is unfortunately unreachable due to tourists destroying the beach over the years but you can still get a good photo of it. Lily, thank you for being a great tour guide! :)

Day Trip to James Bond Island

Day Trip to James Bond Island by Premium Speedboat from Phuket | May 2019
Overall a great experience. The staff was very friendly, and everything was perfectly organized. We had enough time to explore a cave, take pictures of the James Bond island, sail with a canoe, have lunch and enjoy some time on the beach. It was really fun.
