Great day with our guide Hassan and the serious driver and full of explanations about the turtles, the tsunami: it interested our children from 4 to 16 years old, I recommend +++ the raft ride with tastings and wilder khao lak and less touristic is really to discover! Our guide advised us the restaurant with an exceptional view and on a low budget, delicious Nern Khao View Talay +++ Exotic holidays for the family!

Punctual pickup in Patong, we were 6 guests. Drive almost 2 hours to the turtles. The highlight was the trip on the bamboo raft, put on your bathing suit, you get wet from the waist down and you can also swim in the river. The waterfall was great too.

Bob was a great companion, this German-language tour is worth it, I would book him again at any time.

Rafi is a great tour guide! Thank you for your effort and the wealth of information!

Everything went well. They even wait fo us even if we are delayed by 15-30mins.
