“Unreliable Phuket Tours & Travel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I was recommended to this tour agency by the taxi who took us from the airport to our hotel during our travel from 23/3/13 to 27/3/13.

We booked Phuket Fantasea for 2 adults and 2 children with them as they were cheaper compare to other tours. We we dropped off at the entrance by the driver without being told that we have to obtain our tickets from the counter. My parents who made the booking through Phuket Easy Tour was showed to the ticket counter by the driver! Thumbs up Phuket Easy Tour. On the return trip we were dropped off on the road side to walk to our hotel at Holiday Inn Phuket despite seeing we were travelling with two sleepy your kids.

We also booked an airport transfer from them to the airport on 27/3/13 as our flight was 10.30am Thailand Time. We called the tour agency Director Romee Laerae on 26/3/13 and was given assurance that the driver would pick us up at 7.30am. To our dismay, the driver did not turn up and we were lucky that the Holiday Inn Concierge manage to arrange a taxi for us within 5 minutes. Otherwise , we would have been late for our flight home.

Never book any tour from Phuket Tours & Travel which is located at 34 Rat U Thit 20 Pee, Patong, Kathu, Phuket. DO not be conned by their courteous and cheap tours only to experience unreliable and uncaring treatment.

Phuket Easy Tour was more reliable and caring towards my elderly parents who booked the Phuket Fantasea and airport transfer through them.

“Canoe Phang Nga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Our best experience in our trip to Thailand was a Starlight boat trip to Phang Nga with John Gray Company. It started at noon and included lunch and dinner. I'm from San Francisco CA and love food, this food was as good as any I had on my 3 week trip (talking about food on a canoe trip?).

The main boat is large and easy on the motion sickness, this was a February experience, beware of Summer seas.

The canoes are paddled by English speaking guides, typically 3 to a canoe (or 2 or 4). On free time in protected bays, you can go out on your own but I just jumped of the big boat and swam.

The caves are really interesting with rock formations and open up to the sky once through the tunnel, donut shaped islands (I am claustrophobic, but had no problems). The monkeys are not a nuisance like at the Monkey Temple.

On our boat was led by "Nick", who was just the best. knowledgable, respectful of the environment and entertaining (hansom too for a old fart).

The program includes water and food. Get this, they put your cheap store bought beer on ice for you, talk about saving money... Speaking of money, it cost me 3,950 Thai Baht, over a hundred US$ per person. However, we were transferred from Patong Beach from our hotel, way on the other side of the island (almost an hour drive each way) and no other charges were required. I gave my canoe driver 250 Baht tip for a great experience.

Phuket was backed up with car traffic and over crowded beaches, get away!

“Trip with speed boat to Phi-Phi island”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

It was one of my worst experience in Phuket.This is super speed trip around islands.The special movie beach is stuffed by people nd boats.Nothing to see.Monkey beach and Viking cave is just fast sightseeing , and from the speed boat is no view.Our Phi-Phi visit was just lunch because we do not have enough time to stay there more than 1 hour.
Maya beach where we shut have relax was again crowded and you have to pay for everything.150 bath for 1,5h sun chair and umbrella.Ther was not any other place for seating.
I was disappointed from this trip.Do not recommand it.
