The tour was the perfect opportunity to spend a day in Khao Sok. We were picked up on time and an hour later we were already in the boat. The program was run very well, but in my opinion it was run a little too thin. A 40-minute jungle hike and a visit to the Coral Cave were the main activities (boat trip and lunch skipped).

Super nice trip with lots of nature. First a beautiful hike through the national park, followed by the best food I've ever had on a trip. At the end there is a nice canoe tour including a coffee break (made of bamboo cups) directly on the river. Our guide took a lot of time for us and showed us many other highlights.

Lovely day in Khao Sok: hike in the rainforest with a skilled and sympathetic local guide, boat trip on the stunningly beautiful Ratchaprapha Lake ... and then a swim in the lake after a long hot day - wow!

It was a super successful tour with a super nice guide! Joe was punctual, very talkative, in a good mood and knew his way around very well. Really great.

I Enjoyed the trip with the guide james , thank you so much
