What You Can Expect

The Real Phuket Sightseeing Tour with Cocktail

Phuket rum distillery

After pickup in the late morning, your day tour starts by heading toward the old city of Phuket, stopping by the tourism office for an introduction to the area's history and Sino-Portuguese architecture. Then stop at a viewpoint over the city for photo ops. 

In the afternoon, you'll have a lunch break (own expense), and then your tour continues with a visit to Wat Chalong, the largest and most prominent Buddhist temple on the island. Admire the 3-story main building, and head upstairs to see Buddha statues and enjoy a view from the top level.

Next, visit the Phuket Big Buddha, a marble statue visible from a large part of the island. If you want to leave your mark, you can purchase a small piece of marble to have mounted on one of the pillars. Then drive along a coastal road on the west side of the island, stopping for a photo op before arriving at Laem Promthep in the early evening. Watch the sunset from this southwestern tip of Thailand, and then head to a rum factory in Chalong for a cocktail made with organic rum.

Your day tour ends with return to your hotel in the mid-evening. By the end of the day, you'll have a proper overview of Phuket without the hassle of factory shops that are often part of other tours.

The tour was amazing! B.B. our guide was very informative and knowledgeable. We would definitely go on another tour with B.B. and Boy the driver they are lovely. The trip took us to the big Buddha, a Chalong bay rum distillery and we had the best lunch ever in a restaurant recommended by B.B.

My husband and I had a Blast!
Our tour was amazing start to finish. We were picked up at our hotel on time and introduced to our guide Mr Tony Spicy and our driver Mr Boy - they were both very kind and polite.
Our first stop was to go up high to the Fitness Park so we could have a 360 nearly view of Phuket -we took pictures and learnt about the King as well.
We also visited the Cape and once again great photos and wonderful views.
We had lunch at a restaurant overlooking jungle views - yummy and very affordable!
After lunch we visited the Big Buddha and that was really something. Our guide Mr Tony was just so informative. He was very passionate about the religion and we learnt a lot. I don't think he would go into too much detail if you weren't interested but we were so we got a lot of information which was amazing!
We also visited the Temples and it was another humbling experience.
We finished off at the distillery which we actually really enjoyed! Our lovely guide at the factory was once again so informative. We got to try the different flavors of rum that they produce as well!! As well as our group there was another group of 3 that joined us who were on their own and wanted a tour as well - We would never have thought to do a distillery tour ourselves! They didn't push us to buy anything but we did anyway - it's a great souvenir of the time we went to a rum factory in Phuket !
All in all our trip was fantastic -over and above our expectation!
A HUGE thank you to MR Tony and Mr Boy - you were both so kind to us and we won't forget you !

Great tour to get to know Phuket Town area. Our guide Wang and driver Mr Boy were both very helpful and informative. The Big Buddha is a must and we had a great time at Wat Chalong Temple of Celebration as it was Chinese New Year - so lots of stalls and happy people. Cape Phromthep was beautiful and had great views but shame we didn't see it at sunset. Phuket Town was so interesting with the mix of architecture and the banana roti sustained us til lunchtime. Finishing at Chalong Rum for a tour and tasting was a great end to the day. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

This tour was amazing!! I'd recommend wearing comfortable shoes or sneakers because you will be walking around for about 7 hours. Our tour guide, Ann, was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Request her if you can. She was very funny, personable, knowledgeable, and really showed us a great time. We were provided cold beverages throughout the day, the van was clean and had free Wi-Fi. There was also a professional photographer snapping candids throughout the day, and we will be emailed a link where we can download the pics for free. You will NOT be allowed to shop during this tour, so if you see something you like, try to remember what street it is on. I'd totally do this again. Phuket Let's Go rocks!!!

This tour is great if you're in Phuket, but can't drive around on your own. The tour guide was very nice and he took us to all the main sights, including viewpoints and temples. The tour also included a visit to a rum distillery. The group was quite small, only 6 people. More importantly, we bit the crowds in every single location, which was pretty great. I only wished we have had time to hike down the Phromthep Cape. The tour guide said it's just a 30 min hike, so I think they should include that in the tour.

What an excellent day it was!!
From being picked up exactly on time to being dropped off back at the hotel we had the most amazing day. Our tour guide, Tai, was so enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable. The driver incredibly friendly and helpful. At one of our stops it was raining, so the itinerary was swapped so that we did not have to get wet. This was very thoughtful and it worked out well. We got to see everything AND stay dry :-
The sights we saw were breath-taking. For example, when you walk up the stairs to The Big Buddha and turn around and see the view ... it is amazing. Ending the day with at the rum factory is such a great idea. An ice cold cocktail is exactly what we felt like after the heat of the day.
We would DEFINITELY recommend this to anyone who wants to see the hot spots of Thai culture in Phuket and learn about their traditions.

The gift bag, constant supply of water, and bracelet souvenir were an excellent touch.
Thank you for an awesome experience
