We had a beautiful time! Our guide was very knowledgeable about everything in the area and was teaching us the English meaning of the names of the places visited. The islands we visited were beautiful and the canoeing was delightful with very friendly locals who were doing the work for us so we could soak in the environment. Our driver was very friendly and our guide made an effort to get to know us all and was helpful in encouraging us to talk to the other people on the tour with us. Overall we had a great day and made some awesome memories! Thank you!

This is a MUST when in Thailand. The value for money is incredible and you get to see so many tourist attractions as well as having lunch for free with the locals at panyee village. Our tour guide was called Lita and she was an incredible woman as well as an unbelievable guide with a lot of character, personality and knowledge. If you get blessed with Lita then your day will be 10x better. I suggest you book with this tour guide as you won’t go wrong and will thoroughly enjoy your day. 100/10

Unbelievable. Lita our tour guide was a fantastic person who brings happiness, joy, knowledge and a great personality throughout the whole day. I highly recommend this tour for the sights, lunch and all round sightseeing trip and if you are lucky enough to be blessed with Lita then your day will be 10x better.

Nothing but good things to say! Our guide was super knowledgeable and spoke good English. We didn't get to go to the dragon cave because of the rain which was out of their control, but they took us to a different cave temple instead. The lunch provided was excellent.

We had a great time. Max was considerate and attentive to our comfort and safety throughout the activities.
