Brilliant day out! Our guide was chatty and knowledgeable about all the places we visited, The canoeing in caves was epic, having to lie down in the canoe to enter the caves because of tide levels. The floating village is amazing, we had a beautiful lunch there and time to wonder about. The monkeys!!!!!! What can I say apart from they’re cheeky and cute, there is a stall to buy fruit and nuts to feed the monkeys for 200baht. Worth every penny!!

Very good and authentic guide. We were a family, alone, on the trip. There was a guide and a driver. The guide told in an appropriate amount both about Thailand's history and culture along the way. Can be recommended (our children are 5-8-9 years, so appropriate time of 4 hours).

Es war einfach unglaublich..die Naur ein Traum, alles bestens organisiert..das Resort so schön, das Essen toll sowie die dazugehörigen Snacks und immer Getränke...und das beste: unser Guide ;) Absolut zu empfehlen...das nächste Mal werde ich min. 2 Nächte im Tree House verbringen

An all-round successful tour with many great stations. The organization was excellent! In particular, the performance of the guide (run) was a highlight. He took great care, shared a lot of interesting information and always tried to make sure that everyone was fine!

A very exciting open jeep ride through the jungle. Eventful and impressive.
