We booked transport with John's Tours to travel from Phu Quoc to Phnom Penh. We were assured a new, air conditioned bus with only one change at Ha Tien border. We've travelled before in Asia and understand buses run late and can be overcrowded, but this was our worst experience to date. The 6 hour journey took 12 (we flew... More

Spending 6 hours with the tour found it very hot and uncomfortable in the van between stops. A/C not working very well. I thought we stopped too long at the beach for lunch 1.5 hrs. But my wife and I are not beach people so that's fair. Loved the Myrtle Winery and Pepper farm. Guide seemed knowledgeable but hard to... More

We booked a day boat tour that included fishing, snorkelling and a BBQ lunch. We booked via our resort and John's Island Tours was the only option presented to us - the price seemed very reasonable (17 USD each) and I wish we'd had the opportunity to pay more for a quality tour... Our tour guide was friendly and we... More

A great trip with wonderful staff. The fishing was a bit ordinary but the snorkelling on Turtle island was wonderful.

Had originally wanted to book a day tour through the hotel's (VinPearl) tour desk for us 6 adults and my toddler niece. Price quoted for south island tour (6h) was 1,250,000VND (57USD) per person, regardless of size of group. I thought that was pricey so did a quick search online and found John's Island Tours, which has a good amount... More

As we booked the private tour on such short notice, the tour was quoted quite over-price and honestly if it was 1/3 cheaper, then it was worth it (after the trip, we checked around and found out that the rates we paid was quite high). We went reef-snorkeling and it was fun and beautiful. Join a group tour, it will... More

Prior to visiting Phu Quoc, I had read up on snorkeling tours and read the many reviews here on Tripadvisor and had in mind to check out John's Island Tours upon arrival. I was pleasantly delighted to find that they have a shop just outside the night market and within minutes of speaking to the staff, I signed up for... More
