What people are saying about Central Thailand

The tour was really great and value for money was really great. The journey takes just over 8 hours and we discovered the hotspots of Ko Samui. Probably a lot of temples, but it was still fun. The guide and the entire crew were very friendly and put everyone in a good mood. Was worth it.

We had a fabulous time, although we didn’t do the ‘fortune telling’ or ‘lotus flower’ making as described. Amazing tour guide and lots of fun, even for someone who had never been on a scooter before!

It was great! We visited a lot of spots. The guide was very friendly and took care of everyone. The food was delicious. One of the highlights was the ride on the top of the car.

It is a highly recommended excursion! It was a lot of fun the day and we saw practically the whole island. Very good price-quality ratio!

It's amazing, I really had a great time. Day I flew away. Thank you
