We booked the early Bird Tour. We had a lovely and delicious little breakfast at tup Island and watched the sunrise. It was very quiet and relaxing as all the other boats start their tours much later. Since we went by longtailboat we could go to places were speedboats could not go. We did some nice snorkeling and saw many colourful fish. Afterwards we went to the beautiful beach at poda island, went swimming and enjoyed the view with a fresh coconut. The guides Mr. Handsome and May were very nice and friendly people, that made the trip something very special. They took many pictures for us which was also very nice. The last stop was railay beach where we only spent like 20 minutes, which was perfect because it is a very crowded place. The boat was very relaxing because there were cozy mats and beanbags were we could chill. Overall the tour was perfect and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for quiet and relaxing time without all the stressful touristgroups!

we had to change to a private speed boat instead because of the weather. We had Dean as our tour guide for the early bird experience. The tour was absolutely brilliant, as we arrived early no other tourists were on the island and we had coffee and banana muffins on the first island. we then travelled to the next island where we went snorkeling, Dean was great and would point out all the cool fish. We then went to the next island where they gave us a picnic of pad Thai, fresh coconuts water melon, fried chicken etc. Dean took so many wonderful photos and videos of us and had so much knowledge to share. 100% recommend this trip! The rest of crew and captain on the boat were also very friendly and professional.

Amazing tour! Completely beyond our expectations. The program is quite extensive and very interesting. Not just your average boat ride - we swam amongst fishes on our own private island shore, explored caves and had a tasty home cooked meal. The driver and the guide were very helpful and let us tailor the tour to our individual desires. Overall, very pleasantly surprised by how well organized everything was!

We had a great day. I recommend this tour to anyone who is in Ao Nang. There is ample time at each stop and you can watch fish on the reef off Chicken Island and Poda Island at leisure. Our guide was super nice, accommodating and always provided interesting details. All in all we had a great day!

experience was fun. tour guide Max from PhiPhi tours is very accommodating! i really enjoyed the trip.
