This was the worst tour I have ever taken. We were advised prior to booking with this company that they were not good but as other tour companies were fully booked we decided to go with Barracudas on the four island tour on the long tail boat. There was absolutely no communication throughout the tour, apart from when we were... More

I was conned on the first day as i specifically told them we paid for kayaking as an option. They assured us yes, yes, yes...and when we reached the island, they told me so sorry, water choppy so no kayaking. Little did I know that if kayaking was included, the long tail boat will have kayaks tied to the boat.... More

1st day was the 4 island tours. Adult costs 400 baht, using longtail boat. Estimatedlt we are 60-75 people on the boat that day. Some guests behind me said, "is that really safe?!" With full of doubt tone, trying to figure out whether we can fit or not. Anyway, the trip will still go on. As we entered the boat,... More

The company advertises with glossy brochures showing PhiPhi islands and other island tours. Reality is quite different. The boat they offered me was extremely dangerous to board, you had water coming up to your face to board it, you had to dodge the moving blades of the motors to avoid your leg being slashed, and once in the boat you...

We booked the 4 island tour and we had a great time. The staff were very helpful and fun. I don't think this tour company would try to scam. Lunch was not very good but I don't think it matters that much.

Worst boat tour company I have ever used! This company are actively running a local scam, supported by criminal-like employees all earning commission. Thai tourist authority really needs to investigate these jokers and shut the company down, maybe they are waiting for passengers to drown before taking any action! Please read the 'terrible' reviews as they are all telling the... More

We booked phi phi island tour for 2 adults+2 little kids (9,5yrs). Hotel pickup was right at 8 am as told to us. Boarding on speed boat was chaotic as Ao Nang beach but kids were fairly assisted by the crew. Commentary and instructions were mainly in Thai and edited version (80-90% short) was in English. Our kids enjoyed fresh... More

I booked with baracuda and hadn't read reviews before booking. The night before after reading the awful reviews was concerned about what was getting myself into. All I have to say after today is I don't know why all the reviews were so bad. Yes, the company had a lot of people and so we waited about 15 minutes after... More

Was put on this company's 4 Island tour as part of a package with our hotel, and it was quite unsatisfactory. It's a 'cheap' tour but still really below par. The trip to the four islands offshore of Ao Nang is a popular one run by several companies. Barracuda Tours appears to be a big operator running many different tours,... More
