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.

The tour was super nice and exciting. We saw bats, monkeys, jellyfish, birds, eagles and crabs. Add to that the breathtaking tour of the national park. Plant milk for the coffee and vegan muffins would have been nice. But for lunch a large selection was made for me and another vegan, super tasty and varied. Omnivores also liked to drop by and recharge their batteries. A plant-based selection also makes a lot of sense in nature conservation

We had a great time on this tour! Everything was very well organised, and the team did a great job so that everyone felt welcome on the boat. The lunch was yummy as well. Snorkelling was ok, and we only got to see one monkey in the trees, but overall enjoyed our day. As for the boat trip itself, I believe we were lucky with the weather and the sea was relatively calm. Also, not that many people everywhere we went which was great.

everything was perfect, we had an amazing day with amazing tour guides, all very friendly and tasty food and awesome experience

Everything was super nice, although "The beach" is closed you could admire it from the water.
