The day trip was exceptional. Amazing value for the price. Tour guide was friendly and willing to explain things and take photos. I only wish we had more time to spend at each of the locations (esp. the emerald pool and hot springs) so we could have done some additional exploring. I didn't realize how far apart all the locations are from each other, so plan on being in transit for a good chunk of time. They do provide van snacks and bottled water. Overall, best day we spent in Thailand.

Fair bit of walking if you want to. Swimming is a must in the Emerald Pool and the Hot Springs. Doing the steps at the Tiger Temple is a serious challenge but what a view.We also had a lovely lunch and plenty of water. Bee the tour guide was fantastic

A wonderful rich and varied excursion that takes you on a journey to the heart of the different wonders of Krabi, a great way to discover the beauties of the region.

Bee was an amazing guide, so helpful. The whole day was very well organised, there was enough time in each place but still got a lot packed in.

It was a full day and lots of fun. 1200 steep steps up to the big Buddha is a rough climb but worth it.
