We decided that we would prefer a more personalised 4 island tour and made contact with Lanta Longtail. We were accompanied by Sue, who ensured that we were well informed (great to have someone speaking English), well fed ( the food was excellent) and we'll looked after. We really appreciated the personal touch. The places she took us to were... More

We did the 4 Islands tour on Tuesday. The tour was very good. The guides were helpful. The longtail we were on was comfortable as there was a bit of swell. The tour was good there was live coral at the scuba sites. The Emerald cave was wort the the money on its own. It is difficult to get into... More

We took the 4 Island tour the same day as katie_dibb (see review below), and I can only second her praise of Susanna, the captain and our day on the water. Loved the snorkelling, the fish, the bats, swimming through the cave, the lunch on the beach. Wish we had time to another tour. We also stayed in one of... More

I was in Lanta in January of 2015 and had the great pleasure of meeting Susanna. She has a genuine care for people and will always prioritize people’s safety as well as ensure people are having a good time while under her care. You can truly see she loves what she does and transfers her passion in everything she does,... More

We booked last minute on a 4-island tour with Lanta longtail for a very enjoyable day out. What really differentiates it is that you are a small group (private tours at 7000 thb) with an English speaking guide.. It was good fun to spend the day out chatting with Martin! We did the standard 4-island tour.. 45 min by longtail... More

Just a quick review to share our experience. The owner Susanna was nice and responded quickly to our mails. However, she wouldn't confirm the booking until we finally arrived on Koh Lanta and gave the name of the hotel and the room number (as I booked the hotel in advance I only gave her the hotel name by email). In... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my day on the Long-tail Boat. We went beach hopping and stopped at a cave. We stopped at an island restaurant for lunch and then hiked around the island, stopping to swim when we wanted. We stopped and fed the monkeys ... they swam out to the boat! I was totally relaxed and felt very safe, enjoying... More

I loved my trip to Koh Lanta, I live in Phuket, which is nice, but it is nice to get away, this is about a 5-6 hour bus trip with two ferries. We stayed at Lychee house through Lanta Pole Houses right on the beach, with the waves crashing under the house, I never slept so good. Everything was in... More

Just returned from Ko Lanta and I must say, our day on the the Lanta Longtail will be etched in my mind forever! We fed monkeys in a Mangrove forest, visited an awesome cave, hiked around an entire island and swam in pristine waters. Our guide was very knowledgable of the areas visited and knew alot of the local history... More

I cannot stress enough how much we enjoyed our four island snorkeling tour with Susanna. The boat was driven effortlessly, skillfully and above all, smilingly by our captain, who, though Susanna's rather more silent partner, added to the happy, friendly ambience and made us feel incredibly safe all day, however windy or choppy the open seas! Susanna herself was a... More
