What a remarkable experience this was. By far one of the most spectacular days I can remember. There's a gift shop and cafe at the meeting point in Ao Po. The thing for me on this trip was that it's all so well laid out, so well and fully explained, the staff are having just as much fun as you... More

We thought it looked like an expensive trip, how wrong were we. I didn't want this day to end as we did "Hong by Starlight" sailing into caves and emerging in a secret island in the middle of the rocks. Food and water were plentiful, laughter in abundance and romance in the dark of night floating out candle lit garlands... More

After researching long and hard for a safety conscious company that also offered an excellent experience John Grey stood out and we weren't let down. The hotel pick up was on time and our driver let us know timings to our destination. On arrival we were greeted shown to toilets and seating and again let know the what we would... More

We planned this trip before coming to Thailand, and are so glad we did. We had a private tour for the day, which meant we had a long boat to ourselves, and 3 guides to help our family of 5. Otto was the leader of our group, but all 3 guides were very helpful, friendly, and spoke good English while... More

My family of 4 including boy and girl ages 5 & 6 really enjoyed the day. Hotel pick up with light lunch upon arrival. Great cave canoeing with the perfect guide. Swimming off the back of the boat, beautiful krathongs, night canoeing to light krathongs and see bio luminous. Bring dry clothes and swim clothes. They did provide a dry... More

I found this on trip advisor and put it on my list of things to do. I couldn't find info in thailand anywhere so be sure to write details for the tour guides. After a 1 hour boat ride to the island we got on to a canoe with our very own guide... no rowing needed here :-) Oh sorry... More

What a fantastic day! The hotel pick up arrived at exactly the time specified. Once at the pier there was some random milling around while all the passengers arrived, but it wasn't long and there's a little shop to play in. Light lunch on the boat was delicious. After picking up some locals on one of the islands, we headed... More

Have just got back from the Hong by Twilight Tour and couldn't wait to write a review on how much we enjoyed it. The caves and lagoons were fantastic. The food was amazing. But what really was the icing on the cake were the guides. Informative and so much fun. They tired upside down canoes together and then had us... More

For families, couples or individuals. A great day, a great meal, interesting and fun. Highly highly recommend. Much better than James Bond Bay Day Tours etc... relaxing and adventourous at the same time.

Hongs by Starlight Tour was awesome. The day we were to go was pouring rain and myself and my husband were like surely they would cancel, but no they didn't. It proved to be an awesome day and once out in Phang Bay it was quite sheltered. The crew are fantastic you are chosen a guide who will paddle for... More
