The tour was amazing! Really recommend it, must do on Phuket. Stunning views, beautiful spots for snorkeling, time to take a good pics, tasty food and drinks, caring and easy going crew. Special thanks to our tour guide for keeping the good vibes all day :-)

Great value for Money PK was great The site were beautiful A highlight of our trip Only downside was maya bay and one other attraction were closed but will be back open in high season and the general plastic pollution in the see in Thailand made me sad

Tour guide and team were professional and polite. Friendly and accommodating. The sites which we went to were picturesque and awesome. Fortunately it was clear and sunny.

Staff were very friendly, especially mita who we had had on previous trip. They also gave us enough time in each location to have a look around or to swim and snorkel.

Great tour, amazing sights and helpful staff. A must when in Phuket.
