We had a really great trip and would definitely recommend. The driver was very helpful, he offered to take family photos of us and brought us some water while we visited the Buddha temple. We would've liked a bit more free time in the old town, 40 minutes wasn't quite long enough. Be prepared for the "hard sell" from the staff at the but shop, they follow you around with a shopping basket but it was nice to try the different flavours of nuts. Bargain trip!

Explored many places in one fell swoop where you might not have been able to do it all in one day on your own, as the guide had a tight schedule. This helped us to explore many sights in a good few hours. Definitely recommendable. It was particularly convenient that one is picked up and driven from place to place including return transport.

Très belle activité permettant, en une journée, de (re)découvrir de nombreux sites à voir sur Phuket. Notre chauffeur était très sympathique et nous a laissé un temps plus que suffisant aux différents points d'arrêts. A cette période de l'année, les touristes étaient peu nombreux ce qui rendait les visites très agréables ! Le temple ainsi que le big buddha sont magnifiques ! Cependant, pour les femmes, prenez avec vous de quoi couvrir vos épaules et genoux afin de pouvoir entrer dans ces sites religieux / culturels. Concernant la vieille ville, notre chauffeur nous a déposé à cet endroit en nous donnant son numéro de téléphone pour l'appeler une fois que nous voulions retourner à l'hôtel. Nous avons donc pu rester le temps que nous voulions sur place et prendre ainsi le temps de nous promener dans ces rues de couleurs et y savourer un bon repas.
