Tour guide was brilliant. Boat crew were nice. Timely transfer and departures in a comfortable truck. The only problem I have is the huge national park fee 40baht for Thai's and 400b for foreigners. This is criminal and should be illegal in Thailand. Its not the tour operators fault its the government. Any way I opted to stay on the boat and gave my national park fee as a tip to the Thai staff that helped me. Thailand really needs to address this dual pricing issue especially if a non-Thai person lives here like I do. Thank you so much for a memorable day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The luck box was also very satisfying and fruit aswell as cake too.

It was great to be able to enjoy the Phi Phi Islands! However, whether the stay on Bamboo Island was 30 minutes or 1 hour, the guide's explanation was a joke and it was disbanded without knowing it well (I thought it was 30 minutes). Other participants were also 30. Those who returned in minutes, those who returned in one hour, were disjointed. Lunch is the main thing on Phi Phi Dawn Island, and the island is big, so you can't go sightseeing slowly. But overall I was happy!

Wow, what a beautiful area we got to see and explore. The tour was a little long for us we kinda wished it started at 11 or 12. Got on at 10am and didn’t finish the glowing plankton until 7:30 or so. But we saw so much amazing stuff in one day. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent your, great service, highly professional and friendly team! Remarkable trip! It was a pleasure! Highly recommended! Thank you!!!!

Lovely day out with a great crew. Thanks K. Sa Li and the team!
