Professional and punctual, everything was done with care and attention to detail. Guides were friendly and engaging, with good communication skills. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Lunch on the island was well-organised and tasty, plenty for everyone. Altogether, a very special experience.

Krabi Sunset Tours did a really great job here! Everything went smooth: from pickup, activities, lunch on the beach was amazing and especially snorkeling and seeing plancton! There was enough time for everything and we really enjoyed it. Would definitively recommend this :)

It was a beautiful experience, islands, snorkeling, sun set ambience and delicious food, well coordinated, our guide Ruud was always ready to help and explained everything so well. Indeed a memorable day

Great day trip for the money, food and drink included. Don’t think we actually saw 7 islands though but was still a worthwhile day, was amazing to snorkel and see the coral reef

Very nice trip and staff was wonderful, very friendly and even offerred to take photos. Great experience.
