Considering the price, I shouldn't be complaining much, but the tour was not as described in totality.
We visited Karon View Point, Karen lookout, Wat Chalong, and made stopovers at a small Cashew Nut factory tourist snack shopping stop and a China-owned Jewelry shop your typical tourist trap where price tags have far too many zeros.
I think? we drove past the other beaches that were mentioned in the description, and drove past Phuket Town.
In summary, only Karon View Point and Wat Chalong was worth the visit.
This tour is a good way to get an overview of the island with some history without having to be committed to an all day tour, especially for the price. A few suggestions to improve the tour include having a microphone and speaker in the van so folks in the back can hear what's being shared by the guide more easily and to visit or at least drive to see the Chalong Big Buddha in the mountains instead of just pointing it out. Otherwise, we learned and saw quite a bit of the island and would recommend it to others.
This was a great tour to get a overview of Phuket and the area! Our guide was very friendly and we learned a lot. There were times to take outstanding photos the lookout of the ocean and beach areas were postcard worthy ! Highly recommend......well worth the low cost of the tour !
Not my favorite tour. The guide was nice and knowledgeable but we did not appreciate the tourist stops. Not enough time in the old Phuket with a walking tour maybe and TOO MUCH TIME at the GEMS' FACTORY !!!!!!!
