This tour was fantastic. Very professionally run and the guides on the boat were very funny nice guys. They managed 130 people over 3 boats expertly and safely and kept everyone entertained and informed. The food was good and the whole thing was a great mix of culture, fun and adventure. Our guide Sary was so good- such a laugh but also full of information. I would highly recommend doing this trip and if I find myself back in Phuket I will do it again I enjoyed it so much. Worth every cent spent.

Had an amazing time on the tour. The crew were all so friendly and were having a good time with you. They took us to some of the most amazing caves and lagoon. I would definitely go back and HIGHLY recommend going!

The trip through the caves was amazing. I especially liked that we went through some caves that many of the other tours did not. The food on the ship was great.

We had a wondderful time together as a family of 12 on this activity. This was our second time to go. We liked it so much we wanted our children to experience it. The food was great and the guides were excellent.

It was a fantastic experience with the beauty of mother nature. It's a place that must go when you visit Phuket. The tour guides are informative, helpful and friendly. Jack, was assigned as our guide on kayaking throughout. He educated us about how the lime caves created and its lagoons, and encouraged us to feel the slimy grey mud while we were on one of the shallow lagoons. Besides, we had a great experience in doing the Krathong with him. To sum up, he is an alert and attentive guide that you can count on.

Amazing experience! We saw monkeys, a water monitor, jelly fish, bats, bio luminescent plankton, and mud skippers. The lagoons were so peaceful. It was like rowing into Jurassic Park. I would definitely do this again.

This tour was an AMAZING, UNFORGETTABLE experience!
If you only have time to do one tour while in Thailand, choose this one and you won't be disappointed.

Kayaking through the hongs and floating on jade waters was incredible. The beauty of the lagoons dotted with mangrove trees , surrounded by towering cliffs, draped with tropical plants with macaques scampering about and sea eagles swooping high above the cliffs - breathtakingly beautiful!

Our guide, Air not sure about the spelling, was friendly and knowledgeable. He talked about the caves, plants and wildlife and had such reverence for the beautiful surroundings. He was easy going,funny and it was a pleasure spending the day with him.

The food was amazing, some of the best we had on our trip to Thailand. Everything looked and tasted amazing.
We watched our guide make a flower boat for the Loi Krathong ceremony. The guides obviously compete to see who can make the best one and Air, although not the best at it painstakingly laboured to make ours look good :-

Kayaking into a sea cave after dark to float the flower boats, light the candles and make a wish was pure magic! Seeing the water lit up by bio-luminescent plankton seemed like the perfect end to our fairy-tale day.
We were privileged to meet John Grey, the owner of the company and a living legend. His staff affectionately call him Ling Yai - Thai for Big Monkey. He talked about never getting tired of exploring the hongs, responsible tourism and sourcing the best organic ingredients for the meal that was served on board. He mentioned that they'll be camping on one of the Islands on New years eve and watching the fire-works display. It sounds fantastic so if you in the area during that time, make enquiries. His respect for the environment and his staff is probably a big part of why the tour is so awesome and I could go on and on about how awesome it was.

This trip ticks all the boxes. Beautiful scenery, awesome guide, delicious food, Eco-conscious tour operator, unforgettable and magical experience, worth every penny :-

My fiancee and I spent several days in Chiang Mai and Phuket. We visited beautiful temples, fed elephants and giraffes, learned to cook Thai food, and even visited Phi Phi island. This trip easily topped them all.
Our guide made the trip truly special.

Loved this tour! The views were amazing, it was well organized, the food on the boat was great and our kayak guide, Rick, had lots of information at every stop. I can’t overstate how amazing this tour was (in every way), if you’re in Phuket you don’t want to miss this tour!

The guides were lovely and the caves we visited were amazing. I traveled alone and got my very own canoe and guide!
The minibus ride from the hotel to the dock was long and windy - take a pill before pickup if you're prone to motion sickness.
The operator is the highly regarded John Gray's.

While the experience was truly amazing and ticked all of the boxes for the one thing I wanted to do while in Thailand. The duty of care left a lot to be desired. They will tell you to remove your shoes. Don't do it wear your reef shoes. I took a nasty fall on John Grays boat after the deck became wet after people jumped in swimming and dripped all over the deck. It basically ruined my entire holiday due to the pain I tried to ignore. Get home see my Doc and yes broken rib. Thanks John Gray do something about your boat deck
