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.
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.
I loved everything about this trip and it was such a breath-taking place to visit. The van that picked us up was comfortable, the boat ride was super scenic, we had staff attending to our needs, the guide was super knowledgeable about caves, lunch was delicious and the resort 500Rai was just so relaxing. I really enjoyed the trek and soon after jumping into the cool emerald water for a swim. This was the highlight of our Khao Lak trip.
It's a good tour, we had enough time to visit James bond Island, and other spots there as Muslim village and monkey cave / temple. The driver wasn't fluent in English and this tour started confused because of this difficulty to communicate and because he arrived much earlier than informed in the confirmation. At the end we met the official guide and the rest of tour ran well
Elephants very well looked after great experience lovely place overall dinner in great surroundings and food really nice. Rafting really good guys paddling them really friendly. Turtles nice to go and see but wouldn’t have gone out of my way to go.
