  • The cave is too dark, I believe with a minimum lighting equipment, the caves will be more attractive. However, the photo on the ad seemed have lights, it is misleading.

  • This tour was fantastic. Very professionally run and the guides on the boat were very funny nice guys. They managed 130 people over 3 boats expertly and safely and kept everyone entertained and informed. The food was good and the whole thing was a great mix of culture, fun and adventure. Our guide Sary was so good- such a laugh but also full of information. I would highly recommend doing this trip and if I find myself back in Phuket I will do it again I enjoyed it so much. Worth every cent spent.

  • Had an amazing time on the tour. The crew were all so friendly and were having a good time with you. They took us to some of the most amazing caves and lagoon. I would definitely go back and HIGHLY recommend going!

  • The trip through the caves was amazing. I especially liked that we went through some caves that many of the other tours did not. The food on the ship was great.

  • We had a wondderful time together as a family of 12 on this activity. This was our second time to go. We liked it so much we wanted our children to experience it. The food was great and the guides were excellent.

  • Start to finish an absolutely amazing experience. The guides were knowledgeable and funny. I loved that they were respectful to the environment. The caves were absolutely incredible. Truly one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

  • It was a fantastic experience with the beauty of mother nature. It's a place that must go when you visit Phuket. The tour guides are informative, helpful and friendly. Jack, was assigned as our guide on kayaking throughout. He educated us about how the lime caves created and its lagoons, and encouraged us to feel the slimy grey mud while we were on one of the shallow lagoons. Besides, we had a great experience in doing the Krathong with him. To sum up, he is an alert and attentive guide that you can count on.

  • Once in a lifetime experience, do not miss this trip.

  • A very long day... A very long bus ride to get to the boat then an hour ride to get to the Kayaks. All up about 5-6 hours travel. Scenery was beautiful and kayaking was a really nice experience. Our Kayak had a leak so we spent the day sitting in waist high water... not ideal.

  • This tour is exceptional!!!.. The crew is Amazing so is the tour, so is the lunch and dinner... any one reading this review please make sure you book this tour when you visit Phuket it will give you personalised experience while kayaking and believe me its AMAZING.. dont just take the speed boat tours of island hoping etc .. just blindly go for this amazing tour .. crew will kayak you throgh caves and lagoons with in feels like you are in some fantasy land ..pick and drop off from the hotel was top notch ,,over all had amazing time , there are different layers to this tour and it is very well organised Iam a regular traveller and book all my trips throgh viator/tripadvisor since 2013 and this tour stands number one so far!!
