Your tour begins with pickup from your Koh Samui hotel in time for a 10.30am departure. After meeting your guide and small group of no more than 15 people, hop aboard a 4x4 Jeep and set out into the jungle. The first stop of the day is the Namuang waterfall, a beauty spot tucked away in the heart of the rainforest, where you’ll have chance to swim in the natural pools or get your adrenaline fix on the manmade water slide. Continue driving into the mountains, admiring the scenery as you pass lush plantations, wild forests, and mountain farms. Stop to enjoy lunch (included) at a mountaintop restaurant and take in the views as you tuck into delicious Thai-style cuisine. After lunch, pay a visit to the Magic Buddha Garden, where the star attraction is a gigantic jungle Buddha — a popular spot to pose for photos. On the way back, enjoy a tour of a local rubber plantation and learn about the ancient ritual of rubbing tapping, used to collect the latex from the trees. After an action-packed day, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 4.30pm.

When we booked the trip, I then rang the number given to arrange pick up time from our hotel, they answered straight Way and had very good English!
We were picked up on time! And all was good! It was a fun little day out, if you want a trip with a guide probably not for you, but we didn’t mind not having one, you meet all the other safari trucks at certain points and it’s really fun! Met some lovely people. The food at the mountain top is out of this world! That there was worth the money we paid!
Perfect for families, couples, friends and solos
The fumes from the truck, and the bumpy roads grow tiresome but nothing to do with the trips fault 🤷🏼♀️
This tour didn't get off to a good start as the pick up arrived for us almost an hour late. Once we got going, the first 2 or 3 stops were a little 'rushed' and we didn't really understand what/where we were visiting as the info from the guide wasn't very informative. After this though, the off road driving in the jeep was good fun and further visits were better in the afternoon. Lunch was really good.
The tour was pretty good and we basically went around the entire island. The only issues we had were: 1. we couldn't get in contact with the tour company the morning of the tour. We couldn't check into our hotel yet and were at a cafe down the street and wanted to call to tell them this. We were actually ready to give up and assumed that they weren't picking us up, but started walking towards our hotel about an hour after they said they would pick us up and randomly ran into the van that was picking us up. Lucky us. Just make sure that you verify the time and location they will pick you up. 2. The day is looooooong. There are a ton of stops during the day and you will get tired. Bring lots of water
I really enjoyed this safari tour. Ok, it's a fairly familiar structure and the itinerary isn't very imaginitive genitalia shaped rocks, a shrine, pump aided waterfalls and pools, and the big Buddha statue, but the stops were interesting and different enough to engage. I think the danger element provided by the jeeps adds a huge amount of entertainment. Especially when some of the passengers were sitting on the rooves, whopping with laugher whenever a big bump was encountered. The view was stunning from the hill top restaurant where we ate a very satisfactory lunch and even a torrential downpour didn't sampen spirits, although it did mean we couldn't visit the banana plantations, with no alternative offered. No animals were harmed in the making of this tour, hence the Eco. In summary, a fun trip which was VFM
tom was fantastic. we laughed so much. the trek and sights were great. lunch was beautiful and the water fights with the other operators hit the spot. ride on the rooftop for amazing views and a scare or two. would highly recommend this one. there are others but this authentic and was the highlight of our time in koh samui. cant say enough.
