Full description

Embark on a spectacular adventure up into the mountain and through the Jungle of Koh Samui and then down the other side. All safaris are conducted using authentic rugged ex-army jeeps. It is an exhilarating and rugged experience, but safety is always the highest priority. After pickup from your hotel on Ko Samui, travel to the first stop on the safari, the famous Grandfather/Grandmother Rocks. Next to the rocks is a quaint market selling all sorts of handmade Thai products and souvenirs.

Then, head off to the largest waterfall on the island for a cool swim in the natural spring water. Visit the mummified monk statue in the glass case at the temple as seen on TV. After this ground-level experience, crank the vehicle into 4WD and head up into the mountain to impressive viewpoints located along the route to the top. Pass by local Thai farmers working their coconut farms in the forest.

Stop for a delicious, traditional Thai lunch in the mountain-top restaurant with beautiful views of the island. After lunch, head to Buddha’s Magic Garden, with weird and wonderful statues all made by hand by one man over many years. Running through the garden is a quaint little stream, and above it is an old monk’s prayer room.

Drive down the mountain and stop at the rubber-making plantation before heading toward the iconic Big Buddha. After an exhilarating day, you will be transferred back to the hotel in the evening.

Overall it was a great day. The weather didn't cooperate after midday (rain), but that didn't dampen the team's spirits. The view is great from the top of the roof. Lunch was also delicious and sufficient, due to the rain the view wasn't really good. However, because of the rain at the excursion spots not too much going on, which played into our cards again. The only point of criticism is the exhaust fumes from the jeeps, which was sometimes really borderline. Especially when the jeeps were close together. We as a family (50,45,14) can fully recommend the trip

Nice tour, which includes the probably most important attractions of the island. Start around 09:30, back at the hotel around 18:00. Great viewpoints. The drivers always tell something about the individual stations, but not long stories. Two small criticisms: - the waterfall was nice, as was the surrounding area. Bathing is hardly possible with the best will in the world. There is a tiny pool that can hold maybe 5-6 people. Bathing in the waterfall itself is not possible. - you should definitely bring waterproof bags to protect devices against moisture!

It was a very interesting day. We see all the main attractions of the island. The guide was very helpful and fun. We like to seat on the roof of the car during the ride at jungles. And water fun was the best and unforgettable. I really recommend this tour.
