We had a lovely time. The tour guide "the beautiful one" and Mr Manod, our driver both very nice, bubbly, knowledge and helpful. Overall, give yourself about 10 hours for a round trip including pick up of other passengers on the way and any delays due to bad weather. Thank you both for making our trip memorable.

Everything worked out very well. Unfortunately, the time at the big Buddha was too short, but too long at the first viewpoint. At the beginning of the tour, tell those who do the tour that 10 minutes (or even less) should be enough at the first viewpoint and that more time should be available at the Buddha. Then you can make the great place look much better. At the last viewpoint it is advisable to have mosquito spray on your skin ;)

Very nice activity allowing, in one day, to (re)discover many sites to see on Phuket. Our driver was very friendly and gave us more than enough time at the various stopping points. At this time of year, there were few tourists, which made the visits very pleasant! The temple and the big buddha are magnificent! However, for women, take something to cover your shoulders and knees with you so you can enter these religious/cultural sites. Regarding the old town, our driver dropped us off at this location giving us his phone number to call him once we wanted to return to the hotel. We were therefore able to stay as long as we wanted there and take the time to stroll through these colorful streets and enjoy a good meal there.
