Full description

Following a pickup from your hotel in Phuket, climb aboard a speedboat and cruise around the limestone outcrops of Phang Nga Bay. 

Speed across the waves of the Andaman Sea en route to the islets of Koh Ping Gan and Koh Tapu, better known as James Bond Island after they were featured in the 007 movie "The Man with the Golden Gun."

Explore the hidden caves and emerald lagoons by canoe, and step back into the prehistoric world at a landscape formed over many thousands of years. Follow your guide to the very best locations, depending on the tide.

Visit the village of Koh Payee built on stilts hundreds of years ago. Enjoy a sumptuous lunch of typical Thai food and get the chance to interact with the locals with the help of your guide. Get a taste of paradise and go for a swim around Naka Island or Rang Island before the end of your tour.

Highly recommend this trip. Staff were super friendly and well organised. Nina was particularly good and made it great fun too. Plenty of water was provided all day. The lunch at the Muslim village was also excellent. The beaches and the caves were incredible. Fabulous experience. Only slight blot was a half hour delay to our return transfer to the hotel.

It was an amazing tour. Everything was perfectly timed and the tour guides were fun and friendly. We had snacks and drinks throughout the whole tour and lunch was great. The speed boat was by far the best decision. Great tour and excellent value for money. The only downside is that besides the money you pay for the tour you need to tip every single person otherwise they won’t be happy. It happened to us with the bus driver. Be prepare with that extra money for tips.

Staff were friendly. Driver arrived on-time for hotel pickup. The boat was covered, which provided sun protection. The journey didn't feel long at all, and was a comfortable ride. I was hoping to kayak on my own, however it was a nice guided tour instead. Would have liked more time to explore the caves. Snacks were plentiful, and I really enjoyed the buffet lunch. I was hoping for time to explore the floating village and interact in an authentic way with the locals, but that wasn't possible. I could have skipped the hour or so at the beach, but that's just me. Overall, it was very well organized, and an enjoyable tour. Thanks!
