Our excursion was amazing! We were taken to the hotel 10 minutes earlier and our Guide Kim was superb, very kind and explained many things to us about Thailand and these traditions. We visited several temples. Kim took a lot of souvenir photos for us! We took the private boat, it was really great. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the smooth running of our day, we will never forget. The scenery was breathtaking! I highly recommend this activity.

The tour was really successful and Anek our guide was very nice! He explained everything well with a lot of wit and charm and we felt well accompanied throughout the day. Unfortunately there is a lot of tourism on the islands, but I can still really recommend the trip because the nature there is really beautiful :) you get a good lunch and water. But I would still take my own water with me...and possibly seasickness pills since you spend some time on the boat.

The tour was really great, the activities and places are beautiful and well organized. Feeding monkeys was a very nice experience. The James Bond island is worth visiting but be aware of possible crowd. Kayaking was a beautiful experience too and the lunch at the floating market unforgettable and unique. The guide was also very kind, we would have though appreciated to get more information about the spots we visited, English of the guide wasn’t very good.

Very good tour, there were 3 of us and the island was not overly crowded. Super organized

Kim was amazing, I hope to see her again on my next visit to Phuket
