Brilliant tour. Better than we hoped for. Very funny and informative guide. Far more interaction with the elephants than we expected from feeding to rubbing them with mud to bathing with them. Lots of elephants to go round! We weren't expecting to get quite so up close and personal as we did. Very special. Sanctuary photographer took loads of rein ally good pictures of everyone which you can download for free afterwards. You will get wet and muddy so take a change of clothes and there are very good showers and changing facilities on site. Trip was so good my partner wanted to go again!

Great experience worth its higher price! The tour is well organized with no waste of time, and it corresponds the description. The staff is nice and helpful. The snorkeling equipment is well maintained, fins and brand new mouthpiece included. They offer simple but nice breakfast on sunrise, a lot of soft drinks, snacks and fruit on board, and fairly good lunch. And, of course you get to know with Phi Phi islands! The total time between start and finish at Royal Phuket marina was nearly 9 hours

Super polite and friendly tour guides, answered all our questions, took pictures for us. The islands we visited were beautiful and we were literally the only tourists on Hong Island when we arrived (early morning tour). There was a full lunch provided with more than enough food. The tour was super flexible because it was private, we could decide when we wanted to leave each island. They also brought us to the currency exchange place afterwards because we were out of cash.

Amazing experience from our tour guy and camera man Leo! he blessed us with amazing pictures that was well worth!!! Thank you for the great tour experience

Great trip! We were really looked after by Jackie and the crew. Definitely recommend.
