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.
We had a longer trip (7 hours) than the expected 5 hours as we were further north than the others. The mini bus had a broken seat belt. The courier spoke very fast and we had trouble understanding him so the Italians and Dutch people had problems. He was knowledgeable and knew the area well. The visits to the three viewpoints were disappointing. They are supposed to be the place to see the sunsets but we went in the morning. The mini tour of Phuket city was very short with no free time to look at the shops only the small museums. We enjoyed the tour in spite of these shortcoming and would recommend it
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.
Good, friendly tour guide and good stops! However this is not a 5hr tour, you should allow more time. We originally planned it to be a half day however was from 750am to 430pm. A lot of time is taken picking up and dropping off other passengers hence I would suggest looking at a private tour through your hotel and weighing up the cost. We would have probably paid a bit extra to finish up a bit earlier as planned. Great trip if you’re looking to meet other travellers and don’t mind the drop offs and pick ups.
Great tour and got to see lots of things, the best being the big Buddha, also got taken into Phuket old town for some dinner along the way. The tour states 5 hours but I think it took more around 7 hours for some reason, the drive to old town takes quite a while
