Passeie pelo Mar de Andamão para uma excursão de um dia pelas ‘4 Ilhas’ de Krabi e observe a maré descobrir os espetos que se juntam às ilhas da selva. Explore o litoral sinuoso de lancha ou longtail tradicional e deixe as primeiras pegadas do dia em praias finas e arejadas. Mergulhe com snorkel em uma lagoa protegida, relaxe na sombra ondulante dos coqueiros e desfrute de um almoço (piquenique) em uma praia intocada. Passeie entre as Ilhotas Tup e a Ilha das Galinhas, depois recue novamente em direção a formações rochosas fantásticas que se elevam acima do mar tropical.
No regrets visiting the 4 beautiful islands, which was the highlights of our 5 days Krabi holiday. Highly recommended to visit the islands! 2 of us originally wanted to book a private long tail boat, but decided to book a tour with Viator just before we flew to Krabi. Cost wasn't so much a concern, mainly because we want a safe and easy trip with a good English guide, since we are not strong swimmers in sea. A few things amaze us after booking this tour via Viator :1. very effective communication via email. They sent emails reminding us to provide hotel room no. for easy identification for the hotel pickup service. Another email reminded us the pickup time and provided detail information like which company was to pick us and how to contact them. On the day of pickup, they were late. We decided to try and sent email to Viator (free hotel wifi). They responded INSTANTLY giving status of the pickup! That certainly offered assurance and helped save some mobile phone charges!2. For 2 people, seems like it was cheaper to book with Viator compared to booking a similar tour on-the-spot in AoNang, even if we add the additional 400THB national park fee per person. Note : there are many local companies running this kind of tour from what we observed.3. Our tour was provided by a big local company Nang An Travel and Tour, who was extremely well organized and have it's own private jetty with drinks and snacks station! Yut was our guide. He and his team were fantastic throughout the day, helping and serving everyone, making sure we were all safe and well fed! Icy cold water available all day. The snorkeling gears looked new and well maintained. They were professional and responsible. When we returned to the jetty, Yut also helped to make sure everyone gets on the right transport back to hotel.Our tour was about 40-50 people. It was during the peak Xmas holiday period. Big group but we were not too bothered by the crowd. Everyone was friendly and on-time. The thing we dislike most was the hotel transfer service where they dangerously over-packed passengers into the songthaew! It would also be nice to have more time on 1 or 2 islands. We were given about 45 min per stop. Overall, it was a good and adequate first-time-see-it-all tour.
Price offered by viator was very cheap compared to local travel agencies nor even over the counter price. Also the tour provider Nang An operates all tours very well. Well managed pick up and drop to hotel. Their guides are also very friendly and helpful. Lunch organized by them is tasty and unlimited water bottles . Overall very Happy with this tour.
We had an amazing time on our day tour and we thought our guide was really lovely! He had excellent english and made time to talk to everyone and even helped to take some photo's of passengers with the scenery. The tour was busy but we happened to be with a fun bunch of Thai people on a work day out. My only negative point, and it is small, is that the life jackets were already laid out on the seats and no one had the correct size, which initially panicked me as I thought I would have an XL size all day and didn't feel comfortable going snorkelling like that. However our guide had people swap before we went anywhere near the water. The reason I mention this is that this could be simplified by having them grouped in sizes and handed out, I think it would take less time too.
The views from the boat were incredible and we loved every minute of our day out. The islands themselves were very busy, so be prepared to share them with hundreds of other people, we were well aware of this so it was no surprise - everyone wants to see the Andaman coast and islands!! Despite the crowds we had a great day and the views were exceptional. We did lots of swimming rather than trying to take too many photos on the islands with everyone else. By far the snorkelling was my favourite part of the day!
Also included on the tour was cold water, a hot lunch of curry and rice we enjoyed it and freshly cut fruit on the way back. Also it included pick up and drop off direct to our hotel in Klong Muang. All in all we thought it was excellent value for money and highly recommend.
We loved our experience on this tour. Everything was very organized. We were picked up on time and showed to the boat in a timely manner. We chose the speed boat. It was not crowded and there was lots of space to stretch out. Our guides were very knowledgable and fun! We went to the four islands like advertised. At one of them, we even saw a monkey on the beach. The beaches were so pretty and the water so blue. The lunch was simple but tasty. They provided rice, vegetables, chicken and egg. There was also fruit waiting for us on the boat towards the end. We were exhausted by the end of the trip, but it was well worth it!
The actual tour was amazing. The snorkeling fantastic and the long boat super fun. The only problem I had was that after our driver picked us up from our hotel we had to wait for an hour for the rest of our group to arrive before we left. When I learned that our group consisted of 39 people I was concerned but as it turned out it wasn't a problem. Lunch was ok, nothing special.
This was our first trip and a good overview. Our guide was really lovely and very helpful. We saw a lot and it was really beautiful. Also the lunch was really tasty. The beach and sea at Poda was stunning.
A very well organized tour. The pickings of the spots and pace of the journey was well defined. Very friendly crew keeped the rythm and the travellers well entertained and confortable.
A special mention for the islands that are included, Tub, Poda specially. The PhraNang Cave was perfect.
Don't miss it when in Krabi or surroundings.
