This day trip was awesome! Pim was our guide and she was great! We left our hotel super early, around 3:30am but it was totally worth it! Our pickup time was really early because we were staying at the far southern end of the island, the other couple in our trip got picked up an hour later. Don't let the early time deter you, it's so worth it! We got to Samet Nangshe and had to hike up to the top. It's super steep and takes around 10-20 minutes depending on how fit you are, but it's sooo worth it for the excellent view! The long tail boat ride was so fun! I could have skipped going to the caves, not really my thing, but they were still very interesting to see.
It took us 3 hours drive please mAke sure you take plenty ice drinks for journey as you do not get any Until lunch time of which is water ,tea or coffee . Drink can be bought there for 40/60 bahts But most of time your stuff is in lockers Lot of waiting as for rafting waiting on water to pour you will need loads cold drinks very hot hot zip line is very short but good no photos taken so get some one to go last to take pictures If you want vidieo and 9 miles rafting you will need another 2,000 Bahts 1000 for vidieo other 1,000 could be split amongst 4
This experience was amazing and I’d definitely recommend to anyone. Our tour guide was lovely and always willing to take pictures for you and even recommended the best spots to take these. One of the best moments of this trip had to be kayaking through the caves - an unforgettable experience and our kayak guide took some brilliant photos for us. The only downside for us was the length of the transfer in order to board the boat which was around 3 hours each way - however for the experience it’s 100% worth it.
Good, friendly tour guide and good stops! However this is not a 5hr tour, you should allow more time. We originally planned it to be a half day however was from 750am to 430pm. A lot of time is taken picking up and dropping off other passengers hence I would suggest looking at a private tour through your hotel and weighing up the cost. We would have probably paid a bit extra to finish up a bit earlier as planned. Great trip if you’re looking to meet other travellers and don’t mind the drop offs and pick ups.
The tour guide was helpful and funny, he took lots of photos of us on the day as well. The boat ride was pretty easy and slow, so you won’t feel seasick. The food on the boat was amazing! The chef herself also teaches us how to make Papaya salad which was fun to watch. Definitely recommended this tour to everyone!
