It was an early morning start but it was the most amazing trip we’ve had so far. I felt like we had enough time on each island, a lot of opportunities to have add-on’s like a long tail boat trip and jet skis. The food on the island was to die for. Snorkelling was exceptional. Cannot fault basically anything except for some travel sickness! Was beautiful and would definitely recommend to anyone! Our tour guide was so sweet and accommodating also, his name was PK and the customer service was 10/10!

One of the best activities in Krabi. very good organisation, guide very nice, had best English in Krabi, took many pictures of us. the tour itself is nice altough due low level of sea we didint do the circle tour only there and back by same route. have not seen many animals, but fauna, silence, atmosphere was amazing. we really enjoyed and were happy. lunch was delicious, one of the best on Krabi. totally recommend.

This tour was great! They showed us everywhere that you want to see on a long tail boat! It was a bit windy and the water was white choppy, but the drivers did a great job! There are two snorkelling opportunities and good sight seeing and photo opportunities!! I would definitely recommend this to others! Don’t listen to the negative reviews!

It’s one of the best day trip experience. Staff are friendly and polite, great food and really clean. I thoroughly enjoyed it, worth every penny. I highly recommend.

Great day trip out to the islands. Everything was well organised and the day ran smoothly. Would recommend!
