From Loh Sama Bay you will walk over to Maya Bay, famous for being the set of the movie, The Beach. Here, spend time enjoying the view of the local white sand beach and take some time to walk around. Appreciate the restoration work around the bay, and respect the strict rules that have been placed to preserve its natural beauty for everyone. Visit Pileh Lagoon, an uninhabited national park, which truly allows you to take in the natural environment.

I did this one day trip with my girlfriend, and it was fantastic! Our guide was Peter, and he was enthusiastic from start to end, and also easy to understand. The day started with an on-time hotel transfer, followed by a briefing by the dock with light snacks for breakfast. The boat ride out was fun, the boats are quite fast but it was a bumpy ride, life jackets required. The first stop was at maya beach, and probably the most scenic stop of the day. The buffet lunch was only okay, but it seemed like most of the tours go to the same place. Phi Phi Don island itself was fun to walk around after lunch. We saw Monkeys at monkey beach (didn't get off), and then did some snorkeling. They didn't provide fins, just the mask, so we were a bit limited with free diving to get up close with the coral, fish, and clams, but it was fun nonetheless. Finally, we ended our day on another beach that was good for relaxing. The trip back was more calm, and they had ice cream waiting. Great day!

Worth five stars for the price! In addition to lunch, a light snack in the morning and fruit, drinks and local delicacies on the boat. Ice cream at the end of the trip. Lunch was good, rice, vegetables, chicken, fruit and soup. Bambusaari was the highlight of the trip. At the first destination, Maya Beach, there was a traffic jam, and tourists breaking the national park's swimming ban, which dampened the atmosphere. The other destinations were beautiful and more peaceful. Our group's guide was Paula and she and her team were great! We sat at the bow of the boat, which had the best views during the boat trip

very good value for money. We were picked up at the hotel and arrived at the port at 9am for drinks and sweet snacks. Then we went straight to the tour, whereby the tour guide changed the program due to the high tide and we snorkeled at the beginning. This was a very good decision. We were provided with drinks and fresh fruit throughout the trip. The food, which is often criticized here, was good for the price you pay for the tour! At the end everyone got an ice cream to say goodbye.

Absolutely fantastic trip! We were in the most beautiful surroundings both on land and in the water. We had the sweetest guide with us, who made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. This tour has my warmest recommendation.

Great trip, modern boat, good guide, free water on board, fresh fruit, and at the end of the trip magnum ice cream :) Unforgettable views, being in Phuket is really worth taking this trip :)
