Four of us went on this WONDERFUL tour with the personable and amazing tour guide NUYA who made our trip so memorable! Nuya was so energetic, fun, and made sure that we learned about her beautiful Thailand from history to trying various authentic local foods, snacks, fruits, etc. Our excellently planned all-day tour ended with an amazing sunset experience at a private beach by a spa with hot mineral springs. This tour is HIGHLY recommended! you get to experience in a very small group the local life, nature, forest, beaches, hot springs, and the friendly Thai people.
This was my favourite tour in Phuket. The kayaking and the hiking was not so comfortable in the heat so make sure you're capable of doing both! The guide was the nicest Thai local I met and we were so happy with the service and the trips elements in general. P.s. the spa was a treat.
The best tour we did in Phuket. Friendly staff amazing sites, well planned and a great adventure. Also the best local lunch of our trip, fine local Thai dining. Everything was provided from snacks to water. The guide was great in pointing stuff out. You wil NOT be disappointed with this tour!!
This tour is the highlight of our trip thanks to our guide Nuya. She went above and beyond to make sure we all had an amazing time. We were never rushed and she gave us plenty of local snacks and the restaurant we went to was delicious authentic Thai food. Thanks again Nuya!
Go off the beaten path on an incredible adventure. The tour guides were absolutely lovely, the hike was the highlight of the day, lunch was delicious, the sunset at Natai Beach was exquisite and the hot/cold spa was perfect to relax tired muscles. Be prepared for a challenging but rewarding day.
Tour guide was amazing and the things we saw were wonderful. Kayaking in the mangroves was more challenging than I anticipated I'm not athletic at all. This is definitely a very active tour so be ready with water shoes that are good for walking as well. I loved the local restaurant where we got to eat non touristy food.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun! She encouraged everyone to get dirty, embrace the discomfort, and smile along the way. Her positive spirit was more than enough to make me want to do this trip again. Everything from the group of diverse ladies I was with, to the different places we went this trip was one for the books!
Really personal touches provided by Nuuya, our guide. Hiking the waterfalls was a little strenuous for some folks on the tour, but the day was really good overall and the spa at the dn of the day was perfect!
