Absolutely cracking day out with Jonny and the team. My favourite part was the water fight on the jeeps, loads of fun! It was a long day but very worth it to see all the highlights of Koh Samui. I even lost my hat on the tour and they were so kind finding it for me the next day and returning to my accommodation. Thank you

This was followed by a very good lunch. Also included was stop at waterfall, viewing point, monkey temple and local market.
