This was a nice way to see different parts of Phuket, and to get an overall feel of the area. Our guide was great: he had a lot of knowledge of the areas we visited, and answered all of my random questions with helpful information. The only downside is it would have been nice to have a bit more time at the locations: I understand it's probably not possible to do that and to keep it to the half-day time limit, though.

Very good value for money. Since we were alone with the guide, we were able to take enough time at each stop to look at the respective attraction. Unfortunately, his English was very quick and sometimes unclear, despite our very good knowledge of English. All in all a successful trip. (PS very rapid driving style, if you get travel sickness, nothing :D )

The excursion was exactly what I was looking for. Not to long, and you were able to see some beautiful sites in the area. The group was a great size to have good conversation. It would have been nice if the guide stayed close to explain the significance of certain sites (ie the Big Buddha) - but I’m sure he would’ve done it if we asked because the guide was super nice! The time was pretty accurate to the description.
