A small group of just 3 kayaks made this very enjoyable. The mangroves were really interesting and we had great fun interacting with the monkeys! Our guide was great. Would recommend to nature lovers.

Well organized trip, the guide and the crew on the boat are great and funny. Highly recommended excursion. Only the speed boat is not for a "weak stomach""

Best tour ever in Koh Lanta, I would do it again when I come back there!

Driver was on time. Journey from Airport to Hotel was pleasant

The boat is not comfortable at all. I liked the trip overall.
