It was an early morning start but it was the most amazing trip we’ve had so far. I felt like we had enough time on each island, a lot of opportunities to have add-on’s like a long tail boat trip and jet skis. The food on the island was to die for. Snorkelling was exceptional. Cannot fault basically anything except for some travel sickness! Was beautiful and would definitely recommend to anyone! Our tour guide was so sweet and accommodating also, his name was PK and the customer service was 10/10!

I came on a trip alone. Everything was low and awkward, but I could enjoy the trip thanks to the kind guide. I wanted to enjoy more snorkeling, but I couldn't because of the jellyfish. I was scared because it rained heavily on the way back

Eady to book, excellent communication throughout; received confirmation straight after booking with pick up time. Great guide. Well organised trip. Packed lots in, visiting several other islands as well as Phi Phi. Good value for money.

Great day trip out to the islands. Everything was well organised and the day ran smoothly. Would recommend!

It was an amazing experience. I would definitely recommend. 10/10
