A nice tour, the guide made an effort and was very nice - we would give 5 stars for him. There is a star deduction for the time management. We would have liked some time in the old town, but unfortunately we were only there for a very short time and then we went back. But the tour is definitely worth it.

If you want a glimpse of Phuket and have half a day to spare, this is the perfect itinerary. Pam is a wonderful guide, well versed with history, architecture, and the culture of course. He waited patiently at every spot, and there was enough time to look around freely. The car ride was comfortable, and ventilated, and his song playlist was excellent ;) All in all a great half day tour. Would recommend

Pam arrived at my hotel on time and even though I was the only attendee, still took me around all of the places and provided lots of local information and history. The car was well ventilated and I was allowed to take my time at each place while Pam waited for me. Water was thrown in too. It was very hot so the 5 hour tour was precisely enough time!
