This is probably best organized tour I've ever been on! The pick up was on time, we got to each activity on schedule, the tour guides had helmets, torches, raincoats all ready, drinks, snacks and fruits served throughout the day, lunch was delicious! We've done so much in a day (cave walk, James Bond island, canoeing, village walk, lunch in Kho Yao Noi and swim in Kho Yao Yai) but it didn't feel rushed. My highlight was the canoeing with the local and the lunch stop. The speedboat can get tiring from the speed and bumps but good time to take a nap. We loved this tour so much we booked Kho Phi Phi with Siam as well in a few days time. Highly recommend they are great!!

What a wonderful day out to James Bond Island, Sea Canoeing, Muslim floating sea village and rounding off the day on our private island We were looked after so well and all the team were good fun adding to our own enjoyment We recommend this trip very highly as a must do It was so nice being just a group of 6, (including 4 of us) This is why we love Thailand so much, we call it our second home

Great tour with an incredibly funny guide Tim. The food and the tour program was great. Only negative point was the pick up time as I had to wait 40 minutes but the excursion made up for that small point again. Absolutely recommendable tour

overall we really enjoyed the trip however our transfer was 45 minutes late without any notification to pick us up and we couldn't get in touch with anyone from the company.

It was an amazing day ! Early morning tours are best as you avoid all crowds! Super recommend!
