There is absolutely nothing negative to say about this trip!! This boat trip company were attentive, informative, cleared the oceans of plastics on the canoe stops. Fed you well and often, made sure you were always safe and the staff were amazing. In 30 years of travelling this was the best boat trip we have been on, and our guide Golf was the kindest, nicest person. We had him all day one every canoe stop (every two people had their own guide all day). They took memorable photos of the day with your camera, gave information about every place we visited and I would hesitate to recommend this trip! Worth every penny for a wonderful day trip. The whole crew were kind, polite, caring and I’ve never known a boat company give so much dietary information about the food cooked fresh on the boat to ensure any travellers knew exactly what they were eating. Soft drinks and water, tea and coffee was included and the food really was beautiful and so were the snacks. Highly recommended 👌🏻

There is really no words that can give justification on how magnificent the day trip was for our family. The crew were such a positive influence and showed a togetherness unmatched by any tour we have been on (we travel a lot and have been on many tours). The friendliness of the entire staff made the trip like we were part of their family and not just tourists. The two guides (Kayak drivers) were had were so polite and helpful. They meet all our expectations and beyond. One was very young but was outstanding and so much fun to be around. The driver of the boat operated it as though we were gliding on glass, impossible to have any symptoms of sea sickness. The meals were simply out of this world and were fresh with every bite. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Thailand and do not use any other company. Believe me you will not be disappointed and come away with the same feeling as we have. The best tour ever, hands down!

Everything perfectly organized, with professionalism, joy and respect for both nature and tourists. Congratulations and thanks to the team! Ah, the food... fresh and extremely tasty! Unforgettable!

Mr Ibrahim was very helpful and amazing he tried his best to make everything clear and make everything fun and memorable

The trip was great and I can only recommend it! It was really fun and we got some great pictures.
