    This experience was amazing and I’d definitely recommend to anyone. Our tour guide was lovely and always willing to take pictures for you and even recommended the best spots to take these. One of the best moments of this trip had to be kayaking through the caves - an unforgettable experience and our kayak guide took some brilliant photos for us. The only downside for us was the length of the transfer in order to board the boat which was around 3 hours each way - however for the experience it’s 100% worth it.

    The description mentions you will go in a cave but doesn’t mention you will be wading in water potentially up to neck height. The trek through the cave it almost 1km also. It was great fun! But something to consider. Where footwear you don’t mind getting wet and don’t take a big bag as the tour guide only has a small wet bag for everyone’s phones etc. Water is provided. The whole thing was just under 6miles (bike plus cave). Both your guides where fab and day was very well organised. Beware of lunch as some options are very spicey! Our tour guide Nim was so good so even took photos for you throughout the day and sent them by WhatsApp later!

    It was pretty easy to get places or though doesn’t say that you have to pay an entry fee upon arrival which would have been more ideal. Also, make sure you have cash with you as it charges an extra person with card; though this was kind of expected with the card fees here. Otherwise was super fun and accessing pictures is really easy so you don’t have to worry too much about taking some yourself. :).

What people are saying about Southern Thailand and Andaman Coast

Tour guide was brilliant. Boat crew were nice. Timely transfer and departures in a comfortable truck. The only problem I have is the huge national park fee 40baht for Thai's and 400b for foreigners. This is criminal and should be illegal in Thailand. Its not the tour operators fault its the government. Any way I opted to stay on the boat and gave my national park fee as a tip to the Thai staff that helped me. Thailand really needs to address this dual pricing issue especially if a non-Thai person lives here like I do. Thank you so much for a memorable day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The luck box was also very satisfying and fruit aswell as cake too.
