    Our guide was pleasant, but there was very little about this tour to applaud.

    Phuket is an island with an amazing history, but we learned almost nothing about the island or this rich history from this tour. And, in fact, given the guide's answers to our questions, I'm not certain that she knows much about the island's history. She seemed woefully uninformed and so struggled with even basic questions. She could tell us where the 5-star hotels were located and she was happy to take our photos (we weren't big on taking many photos and so didn't use her much in this way). That was about it.

    We stopped at a couple of places where we could take photos, presumably to share on Instagram or something. We also then stopped at a temple (she left us to look around by ourselves and offered no insight into this particular temple and why we stopped there). We stopped at a cashew factory, which was really just a place to buy cashews, since there was little that was shared about the cashew production process or the industry in Thailand. We stopped at a jewelry market where we were hounded by salespeople hoping to make a sale. Despite asking to have some room to look around, three salespeople flanked us throughout our time in their showrooms. It felt oppressive.

    In the end, this was an unsatisfying experience that I could not recommend to others.

    Our tour director, Kamonthip Saeter, (Thip), was fantastic, she met us on the morning we arrived and confirmed our pick up times for the tours we had booked before arriving, and our airport transfer, as well as arranging 2 other tours, the Private Tour: Phuket Introduction City Sightseeing Tour and Phi Phi Island by speed boat. She was so helpful and accommodating. The Phuket tour included various lookout points and beaches, the Big Buddha, a Buddhist temple, a cashew factory, a pearl factory and a walk through the Chinatown street of old Phuket. Frida our guide for the tour was a lovely lady, full of information, and easy to speak to on any subject.

    there is not all that much to see in Phuket, apart from the beaches. The one large temple was included but the Big Buddha was not - it should have been. However, the guide was very good, very informative about current matters and therefore the 4 hours were well spent. We did not go to the jewellry place - no interest.

    We enjoyed seeing sights we had not previously seen. The "English speaking" guide was less than that,
    and talked too much. Which is the reason we prefer English speaking drivers to "Guides".
    He did not know of the Jim Thompson stores which I wanted to visit,
    I have to rate this service a 3.
