We decided to book a private longtail boat tour rather unexpectedly. The owner was extremely helpful, even though we called her a bit late in the afternoon, trying to book a trip for the next day. We got lucky! Following day we set off on a 4 island tour. We had a private guide, who looked after us the whole... More

Luck has brought us to meet Susanna as we were looking for a boat day trip in Koh Lanta and we had the most amazing time and the perfect organization picking you up and back wherever you are in the island.The typical long tail boat was just for us then they managed to get us to the emerald cave at...

Pros You're in Thailand Islands are beautiful Small group size Personal guide Cons Transport is in the back of a truck with no benches, same place we transport tools and dogs in the US. 1500 baht is pricey for what you get. Everything is about money: 1500 baht for the trip, 200 baht for the cave, 60 baht a beer... More

We looked at lots of different tour companies but ended up booking a four island tour through Lanta Longtails. We liked the appeal of a small group and a more personal feel (unlike most of the other mass tour groups). We had a group of 8 and had a great day. Our Canadian tour guide tried to avoid the crowds... More

Had a great time on Lanta Longtail as a solo traveler, and I think the others who took the tour the same day did as well. Two ocean caves including the Emerald Cave, a snorkeling opportunity and a great seafood lunch on the beach at Koh Hai. Splendid day!

I had a great time with this small and personalized tour group. Susannah is very responsive to inquiries regarding pick up times, what to expect, and possible weather related obstacles. Robbie is a wonderfully entertaining and laid-back guide who takes his time getting to know the people in the group over the course of the day. I went with two... More

These guys are great - chatty, relaxed and interesting. Six of us went on a private 4 islands trip and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The snorkelling and emerald cave were lovely and lunch on Koh Ngai beach was super. Captain Ken was a lovely guy to have around too :) I would highly recommend these guys as opposed to a larger...

My wife and I had decided to book this tour based our positive reviews on TA. We wanted to see the Trang islands and emerald cave. The day of the tour the weather was not looking good. Robbie, our tour guide, left the decision to go up to us after getting the okay from the captain. I am so glad... More

I have been on lanta long tails several times now and each time is so much uninhibited fun. The stress of dealing with other travelers stress levels and obnoxious behavior is nonexistent as the day is mine! Susanna and Robbie are down to earth, gracious and down right fun to have as organizers and boat tour guides. The food is... More

Looking for an intimate and natural Thai experience I discovered an amazing Long Boat excursion from Old Town Koh Lanta that exceeded all my expectations. The crew was knowledgeable and made our group feel like family. Beautiful way to see the Islands in the area, we enjoyed learning about the fragile ecosystem and were impressed by our host's passion on... More
