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.

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

This tour was run by Phuket Let's Go and I can't recommend it enough. We were lucky to have Anne co owner with use on our trip and Meow Meow as our guide. Both were excellent. Their knowledge and information they provided at every stop was fantastic and their enthusiasm was very infectious. From Promthep Cape to Wat Chalong to Big Buddha to Rang Hill to Old Phuket Town to Chalong Distillery, this was a great day.
Thankyou to Anne, Meow Meow and our driver - this is a very good operation and you should give Phuket Let's Go a try.

Wow on so many levels. Firstly we had the most relaxed and knowledgeable tour guide and driver Mr Thai and Mr Boy respectively. Mr Boy got us to each location on time and we definitely felt safe with his driving, his mannerism were so friendly and his service outstanding! Mr Thai, what an experienced guide, nothing was rushed and he really paid attention to the groups needs, always answering all our questions with a lot of pride.
