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!

The tour was great. The guides were nice and funny. The islands were beautiful and the snorkeling was awesome. It was really cool to see all the corals and colorful fish. We were given a beach bag with towels and snorkeling gear in the beginning and a nice breakfast with coffee. We were also given cold water after each activity. The food was decent, but I expected more fruits. We only got 3 small pieces of watermelon. When the tour ended they had some noodles, cakes, cookies, and coffee for us. The similan islands were beautiful. Overall, we were very happy.

Tour organized to perfection: beyond expectations. We were pampered and looked after from the first moment. On the speedboat the guides were super attentive: food and water constantly. Stops at the beaches: right for swimming and snorkelling without having to rush. The afternoon snack buffet: a real treat. Highly recommended!

Pickup was on time and comfortable. Everything was well organised and smooth. The scenery, views and snorkelling were amazing there was so many colourful fish. The guides were super friendly and informative. Overall a great experience.

I was travelling solo, It was really smooth and beautiful experience, the guide, driver everyone was very friendly and helpful. Thank you😊
