My husband and I were picked up right on time by the driver from our hotel in Bangkok for a two hour drive to Pattaya. Very smooth and well A/C SUV. On arrival at the docks, the team was very organized with Ms. Beezee leading English, Ms. Panda and Mr. TomTom heading different language speaking groups like Chinese. The parasailing was fun, so was the snorkeling sessions. Some fun at the island with jet skis, banana boat, kayaking, drone photos… just as described on the website. Now the ride back to the dock from island to Pattaya, that was very exciting and thrilling as we hit the waves on the speedboats. O arrival, our driver was already there to take us back to Bangkok hotel. All in all 98%. Definitely coming back for full 100%… we’ll probably stay in Pattaya for extra night so we can relax before drive back. Oh! The restaurant at the island has variety of food and drinks. Love it! Fairly prices! Highly recommended experience ! With love from nairobi, Kenya.

I took this tour with my husband, and 2 year old son. We had the most amazing time. Despite reading a few mixed reviews, we found the whole experience to be great value for money and worth the time and effort. Firstly, the company called the night before the tour to confirm pick up time and location. The driver was punctual and drove us to pattaya on time. It was comfortable and air conditioned. Our guides were super organised and made sure to take care of all our needs and belongings: special shoutout to PC and Panda. The island itself was very cute and clean. There were people there but it wasn’t extremely overcrowded. We managed to have a great time and feeding the geese was fun too. The guides spoke english very well and the company also arranged a halal meal for us which we are grateful for. Overall, i do recommend this tour, especially if you have children because it will save you a lot of hassle.

Our tour guide was great, we had Jacky and he was great! The island was beautiful, we had enough time to swim, sunbathe and explore the island. You don't have to worry about the things you brought with you, as he looks after the things while you're there and was always available for us! The boat tour to the island was an adventure and it was great! Afterwards we went to a museum and it was great too! The transport was great too! And it was great that we had an air-conditioned vehicle that picked us up wherever we were. I can only recommend the tour!

a very professional and friendly service. Cho is an excellent driver and found our hotel no problem.

Great experience, great location, very nice staff. Great transport. Highly recommended.
