It was okay. but for people who love animals, I wouldn't really recommend it. I felt sad for the monkeys and baby elephant who was being chained up.

In between the erratic, fast driving of the pickup person and then being left to sit in the sun at various stops waiting for other pickups, by the time we got to... More

Take it from a traveller thats done a tour nearly every day in Phuket for 2 weeks. This was by far the worst, in fact it made me sign up to write a review and complain about it. It took an hours drive from Patong, the driver sped like we were in a speed chase (I am used to this... More

This operator should be shut down and closed for business!!! We were picked up almost an hour late and then our driver decided to make up lost time by racing and weaving through traffic to our destination which was 1.5 hours away!!! The white water rafting was OK except that you're 1 of 30 rafts hurtling down the river at... More

My tour guide on March 2nd, could care less if we enjoyed our day. She often could not be found and did NOTHING to make our tour "Memorable, Exciting, Fun" as guaranteed in the brochure. She was lazy and explained nothing to the group. Enjoyed the white water rafting, but the rest of the day was a waste. You want... More
