The trip was simply great! We felt 100% taken care of. Peace and plenty of time on each section of the trip😊 We saw turtles and dolphins! The motorboat stopped especially for us when it noticed the dolphins, so we could photograph and film them. Very much respect for the people but also the animals we met and the places we visited. I appreciate it 🌸 I recommend it to everyone! Peace without crowds, time for everything without rushing. I recommend it wholeheartedly. The guide speaks good English, the employees are very nice and helpful. At the beginning, the photographer took a photo of us and at the end of the trip he offered us plates with a photo as a souvenir! Wonderful ❤️

The activity itself was perfect and the Similan Islands are truly magnificent! We really don't regret it, in over 20 years that I've been coming here this is the first time I've had them and it's the best, much better than phiphi! The only thing is that we were made to get up at 5 a.m. to leave the hotel at 6 a.m., but an hour later we were still in Patong at 7 a.m. to pick up people from other hotels who were often late. , and after an hour and a half of driving we still waited at least an hour or even an hour and a half before finally leaving on the boat. Conclusion we could have slept at least 2 hours more!… the pick-up is much too early, for nothing!

Jake was our French guide, a handsome young man, very interesting, available, and present. The lunch was surprisingly very good, and the availability of drinks was wow… It was so hot 🥵 The only thing was our trip from Phuket was still long, almost 2:30 The driver drove quickly thanks for everything 🇹🇭

Hello, very nice excursion. The staff who took care of us were very attentive. The negative point is too much road to get to the starting point. 2:00 in the morning and 3:00 in the evening

The best tour we did in Thailand. Would recommend everyone to pay that little bit extra to go on this tour. Amazing from start to finish.
