Discover the most iconic and picturesque sites throughout Phuket on this half-day tour and learn local history from your guide along the way. Snap pictures at locations like the Karon view point and the charming streets of Phuket's Old Town.  

Starts with pickup in the main lobby of your hotel and relax on on your way to the first stop in Phuket Old Town. Discover Sino-Portuguese style architecture, such as the former Charter Standard Bank building and vibrant street art along Thalang Road.

Pick up on time at our hotel. We were only 2 to do the excursion by chance so it was the guide who came to pick us up directly. Everything was perfect, we had time to do everything and at our own pace, we even did things that weren't on the program. Our guide was great, he gave us all the info and we stayed an extra 2 hours with him, we ate together. I recommend

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip! It was neat to drive through all the beach towns, and discover a little more of Phuket. All stops were great, and sufficient time to view them was given. Pick up was right on time, and the guide did a great job at getting us from place to place and giving us information on each stop. Highly recommend!
