What people are saying about Phuket

The tour is highly recommended. If you are looking for action, this is the place for you. With the quads you drive through mud and water and on the road. The zipline isn't particularly long, but it's still fun. The lunch was the best we got on the excursions. The highlight was then the white water rafting which was really very exciting and very wet. The guides in the boats create a great atmosphere, are funny and friendly. After 5 km of rafting you can decide whether you want to add another 2 km to it, which is highly recommended for those who like action. An all-round successful day, we were thrilled and would do the tour again at any time. The only drawback was sometimes the waiting time between the attractions, but that can be overcome.

Great transfer! Got us from Phuket to Phi Phi without any issues. Just make sure to get there early to check in to give yourself as much time to find the company as there are other companies around the pier that may cause confusion!

We had the most amazing trip. Excellent service, very well organized and so much fun! We got to see so many pretty places, and the food and drinks included was good! Best spent day and money on our whole trip! Book this trip!

It was a very nice tour. The long journey was really worth it. It was a successful day.
