This is the best choice for visiting Phi Phi Islands! The entire trip ensures safety. The staff on the boat is extremely caring and accommodating to every single need. The guide and host, Goodie, is the highlight of the tour. He is such a great person and extremely entertaining. The boat ride is quite rough, especially in monsoon season, but the boat captain did an excellent job doing the best, keeping the boat as smooth as possible. Lunch provided at Phi Phi Don, was absolutely delicious. They guides even provide for motion sickness tablets, at no additional cost. How thoughtful! I would only recommend this trip and nothing else.

It was great. Hotel pick up was early and our guides Nim and Nun were excellent. There was just a bit of a 'huh? wtf?' moment when we're about to be transferred back to our respective hotels. There was one driver who refused to let other passengers in his huge van and took only 1 passenger, leaving the rest of us, including our guides, totally dumbfounded as to why he did that. In the middle of drizzling rain and darkness settling in we waited for more than 30 minutes for the new van to pick us up. I hope this feedback reaches that driver.

This was a great experience. Goodie looked after us really well and made sure it we we wanted for nothing. The food was excellent and we just relaxed and enjoyed the experience. Yellow took pictures of us and it meant that we could relax all day. Truely brilliant experience, worth every cent cxx

Its wonderful trip, the guide so funny and helpful, the food super good and clean, the place super fabulous, i will use this patner again on my next trip at another country, btw you costumer service’s super helpful and fast response…

Well planned trip. Everything is as planned. Our guide “Goodies” is such a nice, motivated and charming person. Worth the price.
