What people are saying about Surat Thani Province

What a fabulous tour. It was perfect with a hotel pick-up and personal service all the way. The trip is as described and highlights were hiking through the rainforest, swimming in the river by the waterfall, a lovely lunch and being paddled downstream in the canoe, stopping to drink tea from water boiled in bamboo canes. Our guide was excellent and helped us to find a wealth of wildlife and fauna.

Highly recommended this trip to the Pig Island. You can buy and feed them with food, make photos and videos. Pigs is wild but very friendly with people. You will visit one more small island there you will have lunch and free time for kayaking, swimming or just relaxing. I really enjoyed

We had a really nice day! The guide was really talkative and his english was nice! Everything well organized and without stress, we had fun and at the same time we got to relax with no hurry to go from one place to the other
