Everything was perfect! All the stops was very interesting and we had enought time to take photos and check everything. The lunch buffet had a lot of different options and the food was really good! The snacks and water was also included! Everything was organised very well, would really recommend this tour!

Once in a lifetime experience, as said by my husband. We loved the canoe trip. It was so serene, relaxing and transported us to a different land. Also the caves. The team managing our trip was super cooperative, systematic and very polite and sweet.

It was beyond all expectations in all respects & we highly recommend this trip to those who are contemplating it. When we visit Phuket again we will most certainly do the day trip to Phi Phi Island with the same organisation.

Great trip. It was nice to have your own assigned area plus open spaces to use,

Amazing experience! Our host was Emma and she was amazing!
