  • Tour was a lot of fun! Our tour guide was enthusiastic which helped. Definitely a must if you're in Krabi.

  • Pros - The tour and snorkelling were great, 5 stars, great scenery, saw lots of fish
    - Lunch was tasty

    Cons - The kayaking took us to a lagoon where the tour subsequently went, so it felt like a bit of a waste of money
    - Tour guide was occasionally rude to some of the tour group

    Review would be 5 stars without the two cons, which should be fairly easy for the provider to sort out

  • We loved this tour!!! The Company gives you ample time in Paradise Island and Hong Island, which are little paradises. Highly recommended.

  • This was just okay overall - good for the content, but everything else was less than stellar. We didn't follow the itinerary listed in this description at all. We got picked up in Ao Nang by songthaew on the tail end of my 8:30-8:50 window. We got dropped off at the pier amidst chaos of a billion people all transferring and being herded around. We were told to wait in one random area, and we hung out there for ten minutes before our tour guide came to talk to us. We didn't get into a longtail until close to 9:30. It was forty minutes to Hong Island I'm not sure we stopped at Koh Daeng at all, and by the time we got out and everything, it was 10:30 and he said we needed to be back by noon, only giving us an hour and a half there, not the 2 hours listed. A handful of us had signed up for kayaking, and our tour guide was remarkably unhappy at having to repeat his unclear direction on when and where we were doing this - actually yelling at us once that he told us once already, on board, on the noisy ship.

    Kayaking was very cool, although the lagoon didn't have much water in it because it was low tide - he seemed surprised by this, but it's not like the tides aren't known. It's about 2 km there and back, and a good little workout. I was annoyed because I was paired with the guide, being a solo traveler, and he at points completely stopped paddling at all.

    We had lunch at Paradise Island, which was pretty cool. We then also went to Koh Phak Bia for some reason we were all cold and only got off the boat because it was warmed in the water and then back to Hong Island for the lagoon where we were supposedly waiting out the storm. Nobody was getting out of the boat at this point. When somebody asked how long it would be back, perhaps with some wishful thinking that it might be less time with the winds or something, he snapped Same as the time here. And we're like ...okay, and if we've forgotten, could you please remind us?

    He was helpful with pulling down as much covering as he could for the guests stuck out by the spray, and asking people to move down so more people could get under cover, but he repeatedly said it was a bad weather day and we shouldn't have come, which makes me wonder who's making him run tours in dangerous weather. He handed out motion sickness medication after it became clear it was going to storm, but one poor woman was sick repeatedly on the way home.

    This could have been a GREAT experience if our tour guide wasn't so hostile about having to repeat himself when his English was minimal and was willing to explain more about what was going on and where/why we were going places, especially in the rain.

  • We started very early in the morning.They took us to the naparat boat pier. The sea was calm and quite. First we went to red island where we did snorkeling then to a nearby island where we found the water level is only 3 feet inside the island , the whole land is surrounded by stone mountains and the flat land is submerged by water inside and there is only one exit to the sea. The water was green and I had a fear of sharks and crocodiles even though the boat riders couldn't control but to swim.Oh what an experience in the middle of the sea. After swim for half an hour we started for paradise island.That was really paradise where we saw different types of sea fish swimming at the shore and do not fear people,amazing. we finished our lunch here and that was awesome. Finally we headed to Hong Island. I was little scared with the rough sea during the ride but it was okay. The arrival at the Hong island was fantastic. Nearly half kilometer floating bridge to walk and then to the main land. Everything is so natural there to see. We again did snorkeling and kayaking there. what an experience. At 3pm we started for krabi....................highly recommended for island hoppers and sea lovers..

  • The tour was great, although the longtail boat was a very very long ride, almost 3 hours of the trip was on the boat.

    Tour guide was amazing and friendly, the kayak experience is definitely the highlight of this excursion.

    First time here in Krabi? Must do this, then you'll get a feel of it and know what to do next time when you return.

  • it was overall a wonderful experience and our guide Brown was very keen in interacting with us. Some portions of the trip were very touristy and hence very crowded but Brown amended the itinerary such that we would not be clashing with the whole mass of tourists on the islands.

  • This tour was amazing. The tour leader explained everything really well. Hong Island was incredible especially the kayaking to the Lagoon. It was great that the tour also brought us to Paradise Island. This was the best tour of the islands that I went on and would recommend this tour to anyone.

  • The highlight of our trip , amongst the many options this seemed like the best best option , and thanks to Krabi tours it actually turned out to be so. The boat was perfect and the guides were good, so was the equipment for snorkeling and Kayaking.
    A must do for families who want to spend quality time with some adventure

  • This was one of the highlights of our vacation in Thailand. Great tour, beautiful spots and great communication with guides! I like to do my own things and plan my own trips, but this was more than expected! Book this tour!
