A well planned out itinerary, we were at the sites with either with very few people or all by ourselves. I liked our guide Pai, who is knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. Impressed with all the thoughtful little details the operator included in the tour as well, the goodie bag with snacks, water and a sun hat; wet wipes and water were offered after each activities; and that you have options to order your own lunch and drink. Overall very satisfied with the tour, thank you so much!

Well, this was the best organized tour I ever took part. This clearly is something special compared to all the standard tours you can book at every corner. Pick-up was at 4 am and we were the only guests, means we had a tour guide for our own and she took myriad photos of us. Watching the sunrise was extraordinary, then you board your boat and you have the feeling you are the only people on sea. We entered James Bond island first, means we were alone for the first minutes. This is a massive contrast to visit the island with 1000 other tourists. So if this means something to you, book this tour. Our guide, Noi, was taking care of us as much as possible, supplying us with water and refreshments and telling us a lot about the area. On a private note, I took the chance to propose to my girlfriend and Noi reacted immediately, taking pictures of the happy moment, that will live with us together. Booking this tour may be one of the best decisions I took in my life.

This was the best trip I've ever been on. Our tour guide, Pai, was absolutely amazing and definitely contributed so much to our overall enjoyment of the trip. If you don't like early morning starts (0400hrs pickup), lots of walking (the initial walk up the side of a cliff almost killed me) or boats (you spend about 4 hours at sea) then don't do it. Otherwise, it's the most amazing 8 hours you could spend around the area of Phang Nga Bay. The early start pays dividends when visiting all of the many stops, from James Bond island to cave exploration, we were mostly alone for the entire time. Pai was a very knowledgeable guide and was able to answer every question we had about the places we went to. She was very attentive to our needs and regularly topped us up with water, which was very necessary given the amount of walking and the heat! She even called ahead to the restaurant we visited at the end of the trip to ensure that our bespoke lunch orders were ready when we arrived.
