    The trip started well with punctual pick up and great English speaking guide. Wound our way along the coast to Patong collecting other passengers and then onto the lookout point followed by a stop at the most southerly point of Island. Guide was very informative and helpful, he even offered and took some fantastic photographs of the group. Onto big Buddha and then as we left it started to rain. By the time we got to Wat Chalong it was torrential. We were asked if we even wanted to stop. We did but we’re asked to be back in 20 mins. Disappointing as this was one of the main reasons we booked the tour. Then onto a Cashew factory. Good stop and informative. Final stop was a jewellery factory. We were told we and another couple would be taken directly back to our hotels in the North of the Island afterwards. By the time we came out this had changed and we were asked to board the bus to go home via Patong. After querying this we were hurried onto the bus. What resulted was a trip of 1 hour 15 minutes, finally getting back at 4pm for what was a 51/2 hour day tour!. We were at our pick up point at 7.45am. Our children had no lunch and we took none expecting to be back by 2.30pm at the absolute latest. Other than passing by a shop to buy drinks at 10.00am in the morning there was no opportunity to purchase food. In all this trip started so well and the guide was fantastic, until it rained when stops were cut short and the trip overran!!

    Great tour , guide very informative.about the area . Learnt alot about cashew nuts .Driver was safe. We enjoyed learning about the temple.

    The guide was lovely and we visited some great sights. She even allowed us to extend the tour to the Big Buddha for a small extra fee. We could have done without the visit to the jewellery shop with it’s hard sell saleswomen though.

    This was a great tour to get a overview of Phuket and the area. The tour is only of the south of Phuket with 2 or 3 stops to admire the scenery. The tourists guide are very great.

    Picked up 45 minutes late although we were told by reception that they had rung & said they would be 20 minutes late. Friendly lady who took the tour but we couldn't hear a word she was saying in the back. Driver didn't speak one word at all. Enjoyed driving around & seeing various parts of Phuket whizz past fron the van window. The view point was great, amazing views. The temples were stunning!! Just enough time to rush around them to get back to the van in time. Next stop was the cashew nut factory where there was heaps of free samples of both nuts & dried fruits. Our family had a sample of everything & were being followed by the sellers & given the evil eye, guessing we were EXPECTED to purchase but they are cheaper back home!! Old Phuket town was the reason we took this tour but we went down the streets so so fast! Wish we had less time at the two factories & time to get out for photos or preferably a walk in the town. This was on the brochure, the factories were not so we were all really annoyed!! Last stop was to a gem factory, the biggest one in the world they say. The wee cart ride was cool, the aquarium's with sharks were awesome but we were not at all interested in purchasing jewellery. We escaped as soon as we could without being rude then had to wait over 45 minutes for the others to come out, so so boring!! Unfortunately we had a stinky smoker in our van & my daughter was nearly barfing on the trip back from the smell. She wasn't smoking in the van, just at each stop. Nothing the tour guide can do but just had being stuck in a van with them! Got back at 2pm so it was almost five hours. Would have rated higher if we didn't spend so long at the gem factory. I really don't think that people paying $20 for a city tour are their target market! Also if we could have stopped in Old Phuket town.

    Even though we went on a rainy day and experienced quite a lot of traffic while trying to get into Phuket city centre, it was still a good time going round the other sites of the island.

    We always like to do a city tour wherever we go to get our bearings straight and this was a great way to immerse ourselves in the culture and city with loads of information by our guide. Prompt pick up good air conditioned bus took us to loads of nice places with fantastic views and then to a nut factory and to top it all the biggest jewellery work shop and show room in Phuket, well worth it and not expensive and fantastic value. The guide though Gine was the star of the day. We booked with wotif.com

    This was a great tour to get a overview of Phuket and the area! Our guide was very friendly and we learned a lot. There were times to take outstanding photos the lookout of the ocean and beach areas were postcard worthy! The cashew nut factory was interesting, great to eat fresh cashew nuts opened in front of you.The gem factory was amazing and its very interesting to see how the jewerelly is made. Highly recommend......well worth the low cost of the tour !

    The tour wasn't expensive so we got what we paid for! The tour is only of the south of Phuket with 2 or 3 stops to admire the scenery. Our guide, DJ, was a friendly guy but he was too interested in making each couple pose for photos at each stop,whether we wanted him to take them or not! We would have preferred him to give us more information about what we could see, especially at the temple complex where he left us to do our own thing. The "shopping opportunities" were a waste of time. Although it was interesting enough to see how cashew nuts are shelled, all the nuts we tasted had been coated with strong flavourings & were very expensive. We reached the conclusion that the cashew nuts we get from our local Aldi are much better! And then to the "gem factory" where we did see a few artisans making rings but where smartly-dressed assistants tried to give us the hard sell. The show areas were beautiful with room after room of sparkling jewellery, making Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter look pathetic. BUT we made it clear from the outset that we'd no intention of buying, so managed to escape & sat outside for a while till the minibus took us back to the hotel.

    Considering the price, I shouldn't be complaining much, but the tour was not as described in totality.
    We visited Karon View Point, Karen lookout, Wat Chalong, and made stopovers at a small Cashew Nut factory tourist snack shopping stop and a China-owned Jewelry shop your typical tourist trap where price tags have far too many zeros.
    I think? we drove past the other beaches that were mentioned in the description, and drove past Phuket Town.
    In summary, only Karon View Point and Wat Chalong was worth the visit.
