The tour was very nice overall and is recommended. However, the individual sightseeing points are timed quite tightly, a little more stay here and there would have been nicer. Highlights were the temples, off-road mountain tour with viewpoint and Magic Garden, not to forget the coconut ice cream at the end! The visit to the coconut plantation was, in our opinion, a point that could well have been done without. Has nothing to do with the tour: we noticed negatively the ignorant behavior of many tourists in the temple complexes regarding the request for appropriate clothing. As a guest here, you should be able to show a minimum of respect for another culture.

Fun way to see the hot tourist sites on Koh Samui. The view at the top of the mountain, and sitting on top of the car to get up there, were definitely the highlights. The temples, statues and other stops, including the waterfall, are nothing to write home about, but that’s not this tour’s fault, and it still makes for an interesting day. The guides were friendly, helpful, and a good laugh. The food at the lunch stop was fine. WARNING to anyone who, like us, might find it upsetting - the car park at the Namuang Waterfall has a number of penned, saddled elephants at the side with a stand selling bananas to feed them. This was a shock and not expected. Also take a rain coat because if it rains the car is open top and you will get soaked!

The positive: A great round trip across and up the mountains of Koh Samui including sights on local jeeps with rear seats. Highlight and highly recommended for me: When driving off-road, make sure to sit on the roof! Better than any roller coaster ride. The negative: If you think you can actually see/walk around a plantation or watch the farmer at work, you will be bitterly disappointed here. The "plantation" is the "gathering place" for coconuts and the coffee ride portion of the excursion. Tip: Many of the sights can be reached by scooter. So if you dare to walk the streets of Koh Samui yourself, you can achieve a lot from there. For everyone else and just for the ride through the mountains, I definitely recommend it, even if the price is a bit high.
