    Good time. The beginning is the only part that was terrible. The booking was for 1:30; and we were told to arrive a few minutes early. So we did; and then sat in the heat for an hour with no one in sight to ask what was going on/ what to do. Very, very disorganized. But once we went out; the trip was fun and our guide was very nice. He jumped in the water when we snorkeled and brought us over to an area where we saw reef sharks! He was great. Trip was great, saw a bunch of cool stuff including a beautiful sunset on the water.

We were picked up from and dropped off at our hotel. The day was amazing. Very funny and nice guide, who made us laugh and relax. Many beautiful places and islands to see. Good information and everything went according to plan. Fresh fruit and ice cold water was served. The only negative thing was that it was a lot of waves and wind that day, so the trip back was quite rough. But other than that, everything was perfect.

A very nice excursion which allows you to discover all the richness of the islands around Krabi, and an excellent lunch!

So friendly and proffessional staff. All went smooth and the buffe included was really tasty. Highly recommendable.

This trip was so well organised from the pick up , Lunch and drop off. Organised and yet relaxed

Well organised with a great rep, really enjoyable day out
