Full description
Discover the most iconic and picturesque sites throughout Phuket on this half-day small-group tour and learn about the history of Phuket whilst becoming acquainted with the local food. Your tour starts with pickup in the main lobby of your hotel, from where you will journey to the most popular sites in Phuket. Your first stop will be to Phuket Old Town, where you can enjoy this historical sight with a professional guide as you get to know Phuket's local food. You can snap pictures and explore the colorful Sino-Portuguese style architecture, such as the former Charter Standard Bank building and vibrant street art along Thalang Road. Your next stop will be to the Chalong Temple, where you can see the glistering pagoda and wax model of "Cham Abbot", who is highly respected by the people of Phuket. Many Thais come for paying respect to the abbot for good fortune in their lives. Continuing on your tour, you will visit one of Phuket's iconic landmarks on top of the Nakkerd Hills. The Big Buddha was built as a symbol of peace and unity of the Phuket people, and you will be able to see the majestic 45-meter high white marble Marnwichai style statue up-close whilst enjoying the view of both Chalong Bay and Kata Bay. Finally, you will visit a wind power energy plant situated near the Promthep Cape which is renowned for its stunning views. You will then continue to the last highlight of admiring the Karon view point on the west coast of Phuket. Don't miss the opportunity to take pictures of the view of several bays, the green mountain and the emerald sea with its turquoise water before heading back to your accommodation.

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

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.

The tour was great. Small group (4 people) plus 2 guides, or a guide and a helper. Both super nice and with easy to understand English everything explained. We were picked up by the Hitel in the given time and informed again in the morning via WhatsApp. The schedule was also great and well timed, always enough time to take everything you need and take great photos. At the end of the lunch is not very cheap adapted to tour prices but delicious. All in all, the tour can only be recommended. Top people you are mobile in a small group over 5 hours simply more pleasant than with crowds and unbeatable for the price.
