What people are saying about Krabi

My wife and I enjoyed the boat tour to the Phi Phi islands. The driver in the morning picked us up on time at the hotel. We got transported to the marina to check in with the staff and other members on our tour. I think we had about 40 people on our boat. We visited Maya bay first, getting to dip our feet in the water and walk around. It was little crowded, but beautiful view of the ocean and cliffs. After that the tour took us to Pi Leh Lagoon to swim for about 30mins, the water was nice and warm. After that we went to another spot to go snorkeling. Next the tour passed by the viking cave and monkey bay, the group stayed in the boat for pictures. For lunch, the boat stopped at the Phi Phi island for a lunch buffet. The buffet had a variety of noodles, fried chicken, and soup. Pretty good food. Then after lunch, the tour brought is to Bamboo island where we had about a hour to swim and relax on the beach. Very nice day.

We had the most amazing experience at the two snorkelling sites that our guide brought us to, I've never seen so many clownfish. The plankon weren't as amazing as I hoped, but going into the water with them made them much more visiible. The BBQ was great also, plenty of food with second helpings for everyone. The whole day ran really smoothly.

Excellent tour, very well organised, delicious food, great ambience, Coco our guide was great. Excellent safety checks by the staff before getting off the boat.

Amazing experience and awesome guides! Thank you to 'Sit' who was our guide, you were fantastic! Sorry for not saying goodbye.

The trip was fun! Our boat crew was awesome and our guide Guyfaye was amazing!!
