We really enjoyed our tour. Even though we were the only two booked on, the tour still went ahead and it made it even more flexible! We visited some really interesting place in Phuket old town including a Chinese Temple and some old buildings such as the first bank and the first police station. Phuket Old Town is beautiful. The tour guide even bought us a bottle of water each. He really went above and beyond and was so knowledgeable and welcoming!

The excursion was exactly what I was looking for. Not to long, and you were able to see some beautiful sites in the area. The group was a great size to have good conversation. It would have been nice if the guide stayed close to explain the significance of certain sites (ie the Big Buddha) - but I’m sure he would’ve done it if we asked because the guide was super nice! The time was pretty accurate to the description.

Tour guide was super friendly and informative - spoke very good English and was very passionate about the places visited. Given plenty of time at each destination to take everything in. Would definitely recommend!

Really enjoyed our trip. Great guide, we saw everything we wanted to see and had enough time for that.

Our guide Pam explained everything well and was very friendly and helpful!
