Our tour guide, whose name is pronounced like “Oui,” but the spelling of which is a mystery to me, was absolutely fantastic. So fun to get to know her! The tour was really detail oriented, both “Oui” and the gondola captain showed us various features of the mangroves, the different kinds of birds, even which fisherman were out that morning! They also pointed out the fluorescent blue plankton, which were visible in the swirling water around the oars. The sunrise itself was obscured by clouds but it was still peaceful and beautiful out on the water. “Oui” provided coffee and breakfast (homemade by her mom!), which consisted of some rice snacks with dried fish as well as some sweet treats with pandan and coconut. We even got the chance to row the gondola, which was so funny (and really hard!) My husband and I had such a good time. It was romantic but mostly it was just really fun to meet Oui and the captain and hang out with them for a while. Thank you again for everything!

Cannot recommend this tour enough, a truly unique experience. Wi is a wonderful person and getting to know her and learning about her culture was a highlight of my trip to Thailand. This tour felt so special and intimate, we were the only ones on the water other than one fisherman. Breakfast and coffee were delicious. We even got to wrap up a breakfast and throw it to a monkey for him to enjoy. Really appreciated the peacefulness on the water. 10/10 you will not be disappointed.

Wi was completely wonderful! It was the most beautiful start to the day - the food was amazing and home cooked, the views were beautiful and Wi was so knowledgeable of the local area and so incredibly friendly. Such a special way to start the day. Really leisurely and relaxing. Thank you Wi!!

Sing was our tour guide and made the experience very unique. We were the only two on the trip with him. we took a long tail boat out to different islands and then jumped on kayaks from there. it was a perfect balance between boat and kayak

A wonderful experience the peace and tranquillity was surreal. Our guide Wi was amazing and told us all about the local area. We were served coffee and breakfast which was lovely. We would 100% recommend this tour.
