This was the best GetYourGuide Tour I ever did while in Thailand. TOTALLY WORTH IT. Even if they charged double the price, I would still purchase it!! Not only were the views of the Phi Phi islands phenomenal, and the activities fun, but the service was extraordinarily great! Although it was not included in the description, after being picked up, all the patrons were given a complimentary breakfast (toast, jam, coffee/tea) 3 or 4 snacks (all of which were good, and not cheap), and at the end of the day every person was given a magnum bar. Moreover, the staff of the boat bent over backwards to help everyone take photos, and already had everyone’s name/face memorized by the time we reached the first stop. Our guide/leader, Paula, was very knowledgeable and personable, which we loved. All in all I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in Phuket.

This tour was the highlight of our trip. The boat staff were genuinely friendly and helpful, and especially the lead guide Peter. He was humorous and knew how to keep the bunch entertained and informed but was firm when came to safety. You could tell that the everyone was trained to a professional level and enjoyed what they did. I recommend you do this everyone.

This trip is simply unbelievable. I would recommend to do this one if you are in Phuket. The people from the organization are simply amazing. Great personalities. Peter is a really good guide. Great character. Great personality. The trip itself is really really good. The route is amazing. They have also a very good meal. Thanks for that journey.

We booked the toor as last day on the vacation. Best tour we could have found! The guide, “Sexy Coco”, makes all the difference and it was a real pleasure to spend the day with him and his team. He would take you in all the key places and he is so knowledgeable about the location and there to assist you. 5 star islands, 5 star trip.

Everything was very profesional and perfect. All team was so helpfull, special thanks to the girl and her name is Pola or Paula, she was really amazing. Thank you for this experience! I really recommend this trip!!!!
