Our tour guide, whose name is pronounced like “Oui,” but the spelling of which is a mystery to me, was absolutely fantastic. So fun to get to know her! The tour was really detail oriented, both “Oui” and the gondola captain showed us various features of the mangroves, the different kinds of birds, even which fisherman were out that morning! They also pointed out the fluorescent blue plankton, which were visible in the swirling water around the oars. The sunrise itself was obscured by clouds but it was still peaceful and beautiful out on the water. “Oui” provided coffee and breakfast (homemade by her mom!), which consisted of some rice snacks with dried fish as well as some sweet treats with pandan and coconut. We even got the chance to row the gondola, which was so funny (and really hard!) My husband and I had such a good time. It was romantic but mostly it was just really fun to meet Oui and the captain and hang out with them for a while. Thank you again for everything!

The Sunrise Gandola experience was unlike anything we have ever done before and we strongly recommend. My wife and I are celebrating our honeymoon and after many days of snorkeling and island hoping, the gandola provided the perfect romantic and change up from our previous activities. The guides are so nice and treat you like family. The mangroves are quiet and provide one of the best sunrises we have ever experienced. Also there is plenty of wildlife including birds, monkeys, fish and crabs to watch while smoothing floating along. If looking for the perfect romantic activity, we strongly recommend booking this experience.

Cannot recommend this tour enough, a truly unique experience. Wi is a wonderful person and getting to know her and learning about her culture was a highlight of my trip to Thailand. This tour felt so special and intimate, we were the only ones on the water other than one fisherman. Breakfast and coffee were delicious. We even got to wrap up a breakfast and throw it to a monkey for him to enjoy. Really appreciated the peacefulness on the water. 10/10 you will not be disappointed.

A wonderful experience the peace and tranquillity was surreal. Our guide Wi was amazing and told us all about the local area. We were served coffee and breakfast which was lovely. We would 100% recommend this tour.

A super nice experience to be paddled without the stress and noise of engines and the sunrise, very relaxed guide and a wonderful natural spectacle
