Very friendly staff, lots of things packed into the day compared to other tours.

I booked this tour and found it fantastic! The guide was delightful, funny and relaxed with my fellow travellers. There was plenty of time to enjoy just relaxing, lunch was perfect and the lagoon climb worth every step....and there were quite a few!
I would highly recommend this trip as always Viator ensures professionalism, diversity and fun.
I did this trip with two girlfriends, and we had an absolute blast! The kayaking locations were breathtakingly beautiful and the snorkeling was great. Hiking up to the Koh Mae Koh lagoons was a workout well worth it.

What a wonderful way to explore Angthong National Marine Park! We were picked up from our hotel at the time confirmed to us via email prior to our trip, and then it was just a short ride in our air-conditioned minivan to the pier. At the pier, we boarded a small speedboat with just 20 or so others, which was great as the other tours were going out on much larger boats with big groups. We made our first stop at a beautiful cove, where we spent roughly an hour snorkeling. Then we continued to Mae Koh for views over Angthong and the island's pea-green lagoon. After, we enjoyed a scenic boat ride around the park before stopping at another island for lunch on the beach and kayaking. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone staying on Koh Samui.
Overall this was a great day trip, and well worth the cost. As others have mentioned, the speed boat ride is definitely bumpy. I tend to get seasick, but I took a preventive Dramamine and did just fine. Snorkeling was the 1st stop, and it was my favorite part! We snorkeled for about 45 mins/1 hour. I was a little disappointed that we wouldn't be able to snorkel again, since the description of this tour reads spend the afternoon sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking... Unfortunately there was no option to snorkel again - when we got to the main island, you had to choose to either kayak or hike to the top to see the views of the whole national park. My boyfriend and I opted for the hike - which was pretty tough!!! He made it to the top, and the view was amazing. He said it was well worth it, but it's definitely an advanced hike. There were signs up that the trail was under construction - it looks like they're adding a lot more concrete and better ropes to hold onto, so maybe it will get a little easier in the future. Definitely bring sneakers if you're planning to try the hike!
Our guides provided plenty of bottled water throughout the day - each time we got back on the boat, they offered everyone nice and cold bottles. Lunch was just okay not that much in terms of selection and it seemed to have been sitting out for awhile and attracting flies. My advice is to bring a few snacks! But overall an enjoyable day trip with beautiful sights to see.
Beautiful Islands, and a happy go lucky tour guide. I really loved this tour! I have only given 4 stars because there is no mention of a hike in the description, and there was a mini one, up loads and loads of stairs. If my husband had known that he and almost everyone else on the tour would not have worn flip flops. So be warned people, there is an optional hike, so wear proper outdoor sandals or trainers!
The day's activities were good but with only 45mins at the marine park snorkelling was very disappointing
We did this tour at the beginning of our time in Ko Samui... The sights and view points during the trip were beautiful and definitely worth seeing. The organisation to begin with at the harbour could have been better, there was a lot of waiting about, especially in the heat. The snorkelling part of the trip, alongside the kayaking was particularly enjoyable, however we were left mostly to our own devices about where to go and what to do. Lunch wasn't well organised at all - there was about 5 boats worth of people trying to cue for food, which ended in a disaster especially after we were told that certain food was only for certain boats. Our tour guide was good - well spoken English and the crew on board were also friendly - however, trip could have been better organised
Good trip but speed boat part very bumpy made worse as we had to detour to another island to pick up and return some other people which we were not expecting to do.
The boat ride to and from the park was bumpy and difficult on the body. The weather was bad so I would only do this trip on a very calm day.
It was lovely except that we were the only english speaking people on there and the guide only spoke in Russian to the others and only spoke to us when we asked a question..The food was lovely and the boat was comfortable. but the snorkelling wasn't that great.
The tour info says: and #34;45-minute speedboat ride and #34;. It took an hour and a half both ways as we took a detour to Ko Phan Ngan to play pick up people. I specifically chose this tour for the 45 minute ride to have more time everywhere.
Snorkeling and kayaking was very cool though.
The instructions for finding the meeting point were vague and unclear. We barely made it in time despite giving ourselves an extra half hour. Most get picked up but since we had our own car we opted to drive. The tour itself was fun and pleasant once we got passed our morning rush. We felt a bit rushed at each stop though and would have liked more time.
This is really for people who want to snorkel and kayak only. We planned to relax on the white sandy beaches instead but there were no beaches to be found. The food at lunchtime was good.
It was not very well organized. All the activities were conducted with a constant sense of rush.
