Worth five stars for the price! In addition to lunch, a light snack in the morning and fruit, drinks and local delicacies on the boat. Ice cream at the end of the trip. Lunch was good, rice, vegetables, chicken, fruit and soup. Bambusaari was the highlight of the trip. At the first destination, Maya Beach, there was a traffic jam, and tourists breaking the national park's swimming ban, which dampened the atmosphere. The other destinations were beautiful and more peaceful. Our group's guide was Paula and she and her team were great! We sat at the bow of the boat, which had the best views during the boat trip

very good value for money. We were picked up at the hotel and arrived at the port at 9am for drinks and sweet snacks. Then we went straight to the tour, whereby the tour guide changed the program due to the high tide and we snorkeled at the beginning. This was a very good decision. We were provided with drinks and fresh fruit throughout the trip. The food, which is often criticized here, was good for the price you pay for the tour! At the end everyone got an ice cream to say goodbye.

Really good experience. The guides are very helpful and kind. The speed boat ride, serene landscapes and snorkelling/swimming in those clear waters in this day trip is everything that’ll make your trip to Thailand worth it. Totally recommend!

Absolutely fantastic trip! We were in the most beautiful surroundings both on land and in the water. We had the sweetest guide with us, who made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. This tour has my warmest recommendation.

Great tour, enjoyed every moment. Goodie our tour guide was so friendly and funny! Lots of great snorkeling, lunch was delicious with good variety. Awesome views highly recommend.
