What people are saying about Ko Yao District

A great experience. But we were lucky that because of the pandemic there are fewer tourists than usual. We were picked up at the hotel on time and after a small breakfast we set off with the speedboat towards Phi Phi. There you could snorkel or rent a private boat for a surcharge. We decided on the former and were able to take a lot of great pictures. Even reef sharks. The fish are not fed so that they do not interfere too much with nature. On Phi Phi itself there was a buffet and you could shop. Or swim and relax on Bamboo Island. Really all highly recommended.

Great tour to get to know a little "real" Thailand. The bike course is well selected and offers a good mix. The guides pass on a lot of knowledge and make you feel safe at all times.

Amazing trip, avoids the crowded areas as promised. Definitely worth doing if you're in this area. All staff knowledgeable and friendly. Stunning views.

Great experience. The staffs were all super-kind, the schedule was well-prepared, breakfast and lunch were also good. I definitely recommend this tour.

Amazing tour! Guides were fantastic and very helpful. Would definitely recommend.
