We got picked up right on time by the very kind team. It was about 50 min drive to the first activity which was bamboo raft. We had the pleasure to be all alone for this activity and therefore had the river to ourselves. At the end of the river the driver was ready to take us to the bigger river where we would kayak for a while. Again only me and my wife, the guide and her kayak “driver”. First stop was great skull cave, amazing limerock formation and also cave paintings. I would reccommend a flashlight so to better see the paintings :) then we paddled further to another amazing cave, which we could paddle straight through - completely astonishing. After this we got served lunch, made to our request vegetarian :) after this We got transported to the wat Bong Thong temple, again our very kind guide took us through the temple and it really felt like a VIP tour. All in all one of the best experiences. If you are looking to get a day away from the beach and crowds, this is for you!

Simply great! We had an incredibly beautiful day. Since there is very little going on at the moment (Corona), we were lucky enough to be alone. We felt like VIPs. Our guide Hen (Henry) was very friendly, spoke good English and had a lot of knowledge. The raft tour was very interesting to enjoy just be quiet you hear so many different sounds it feels like you are in the jungle we could even see a snake. When we went kayaking, we were off the route and our guide showed us a lagoon, the way there is amazing, you can't be modest, you have to see it. We also liked the visit to the temple, it is huge, there are many monk statues and beautiful murals to admire, although our guide is a Muslim, he told and explained a lot to us about Buddhism. It's worth doing this tour, we had a great day! Thanks.

This trip was an amazing experience! We were lucky to be the only two on the tour. The places we visited were quiet and beautiful. Well organised tour with a very knowledgeable guide (named Hon) His English was very good and his knowledge of the places we visited was second to none. He was very interesting especially about the local nature. Would highly recommend!!

We got picked up at our hotel on time. The lagoon was very beautiful and calm. Even though there were a few others it still felt as we were on our own, and could explore the lagoon in our own pace, enjoying the nature and spotting orchids. I recommend this activity

If you know how to get to the lagoon, you can do the trip yourself. Very great landscape.
