What people are saying about Khao Lak

This was an amazing trip. The guide Aud was very, very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The day was jammed packed full and very good value for money. Lunch on the floating village of Panyee was a wonderful experience. A big up to the company too for commiting to providing the tour for us even although it was only myself and my husband that day due to it being the beginning of the wet season and very quiet, they still honoured or booking, our own VIP private tour! Also excellent correspondence throughout from start to finish. Would highly recommend this tour, it was the highlight of our holiday.

We had the BEST tour guides for this event. Spanish and English guides made for the lost amazing time. Daniel (Italian) and his colleagues took great care of us all day. The lunch was plentiful and the views were gorgeous. Snorkeling wasn’t the best, but there were still may fish, the coral just lacked color.

We had a lovely day travelling to the different temples. Our guide, Aod, was extremely knowledgeable and made the whole day! The lunch at a local restaurant was delicious, we were served Thai green curry, sweet and sour chicken, vegetable soup, rice and pineapple for desert. Would highly recommend this trip.

Aot was great, very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the day very much.

Brilliant trip, brilliant and knowledgeable guide, Ran
