Love Andaman and Minny, our guide, help us passing this incredible experience. Pity for the lunch that was too much and not buffet style, the result was a lot of food wast from everyone. They could have offer the same lunch but buffet so that everyone could have choose what to eat without wasting.

Enjoyable day exploring the Similan islands. Really well organized tour by Love Andaman, they take care of every little detail. Our guide Stephanie was very nice and kept us company throughout the day. To take into consideration, being January high season, the high quantity of ships and tourists that crowd the islands. Surely with half the people there, the tour would be pretty crazy!

Basically a nice and very well organized tour. Unfortunately, the islands are completely overrun with tourists, since all boats seem to have exactly the same schedule and therefore always stop at the same places at the same time. We had a very long drive to the pier (about 2 hours from Kata). You had enough time at all stops (snorkeling 2x about 40 minutes each) and the guides were very friendly and tried hard. Definitely highly recommended in terms of landscape, only mass tourism unfortunately spoiled the experience a bit.
