One of the best snorkeling experiences I’ve had anywhere which includes Hawaii and the Maldives (saw the most colorful fish and even baby sharks). The guides were attentive and helpful. They were always offering drinks and snacks. One of them even stayed with me the entire snorkeling time as I lack swimming experience. My husband unfortunately stepped on a sea urchin at the end of the tour (on the last beach which had lots of seashells on the beach…it really shouldn’t be meant for a swimming beach especially if it is also known to have sea urchins); they helped to clean his foot and treat the “wound”. Albeit bad ending to the trip but we still had a great experience and are grateful to the staffs. Buffet lunch was meh.

The trip is really awesome and unbeatable for the price. The crew, led by Jacky, was extremely service-oriented and friendly. We felt comfortable, satisfied and safe with everyone. Very professional and the equipment/equipment was great! We can only recommend the excursion! We were 2 adults and an 8 year old child.

We had a fantastic day exploring all the beauty of Phi Phi! Our guide Nancy, and the boat captain and crew, were so helpful and friendly. The private boat tour was a great experience!

Staffs are super friendly, helpful, and amazing, especially molly and sprite. Will definitely use their service again

The Trip was Awesome...all thanks to the Guide..she was Good!!
