Fabulous tour to Anthong! Staff on the boat were fantastic, picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel in a luxury minivan. The tour itself was amazing, boat very comfortable loads of space throughout the day. Food also way above expectations multiple meals for meat/ fish and vegetarian as well as waters/ coffees/ soft drinks all day long and even some ice cream thrown in on the way back to Samui which was a real treat. The kayaking was the highlight in our opinion, having never done it before we were a bit apprehensive but it was great, sights of caves & bays that you would never see from the bigger boat. The park itself must be seen to be believed, its amazing. Couldn't recommend this tour enough, the staff on the boat clearly love what they are doing and it really comes out in the way they make every effort for you through the entire day. My wife isnt a great swimmer and also a vegetarian so often feels left out in such environments but not on this occasion, well done to all.

Fantastic day, the facilities, equipment and food provided on the boat were excellent. The guides were fantastic, entertaining and helpful. The sites visiting in Ang Thong were stunning. The kayaking was great fun, and the snorkelling site was amazing - the highlight for us! Literally couldn’t find fault with the day, the highlight of our trip to Koh Samui!

The trip would be great. We took the speed boat to Pig Island and saw pigs on the beach for the first time. It was a wonderful moment and will always be remembered. After that we went swimming, snorkeling and to a small vantage point. There you had a nice view of the island.

Very nice and competently conducted speedboat tour, which is highly recommended for snorkeling fans!

Was really good, had a private tour! The guide was really nice and kind! Would recommend.
