My husband and I did this day tour last week and had a fantastic time. After travelling around Thailand, it was refreshing to be part of a tour that was seamlessly run, top quality and with an fluent/native English-speaking tour, Philippe.
To start off, Philippe was great – he was energetic, engaging and just on top of it. The tour ran like a well-oiled machine, but felt personalised.
The food on the boat was great – free beverages, a nice breakfast spread and a delicious and plentiful freshly-cooked buffet lunch. We also enjoyed having the coconut cookies and little cakes laid out between meals.
The local guides (/kayak paddlers) were also very friendly and did their job well. Their English wasn’t great, but this did not detract from the experience.
Lastly, the sites we saw were all great. My personal favourite was the lagoon, of which Philippe seemed to know a lot about. And he kayaking around was great.
I would really recommend this tour. It is clear when you’re on the tour that it is better than the others offered, and it is cheap for what you get!
