    The trip to Similan Islands was amazing. Just like in the pictures. The organization of this trip was professional and above expectations. I highly recommend this to anyone considering this trip. We did this 2 adults and two children aged 7 and 5. The package included a proper breakfast, several lunch options and a dinner. Also water, coke and sprite was provided throughout the trip onboard the boat. It was perfect!

    Great experience. Lots of tourists, of course, but it was still nice. Breakfast wasn't really great, but lunch was great. The dinner was ok. There was free drinking on the boat, but there was only water in small 200 ml plastic cups with a straw. Unfortunately, an extreme waste of plastic, although supposedly great attention is paid to the environment. I hope that the operators at least switch to "normal" 500 ml bottles. The islands themselves are definitely worth it!

    Crystal clear water and chalky white, silky soft sand. Incredibly beautiful! An awful lot of people everywhere, unfortunately, but you won't get away with it. The food was good. The last meal is after you are back in port, which is a bit of a shame, because then you are so tired after a long and bumpy boat trip and you prefer to just go home. In addition, there are several people who share a car, so you risk having to wait a while until everyone in the group has finished eating. The car ride to and from (Traveled from Phuket town) was very long and very uncomfortable. We were picked up at 5:45 and were not back at the hotel until 21:30 ... The beautiful scenery and a professional arrangement still makes the trip four stars.
