“Amazing longtail boat trips to local paradise islands, shangrilah found.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012 via mobile

Captain Pun was fabulous, and the food and drink provided were perfect Thai style ammenities that made our two days of longtail boat trips most memorable. The trip to the monkey mangrove islands were great fun. Swimming monkeys????yes they swim for 20 meters under water to get to the boat where we fed them banannas. They the trip to the other local islands that are remote was amazing with white sandy beaches, no other tourists around in sight!!!!!!! This is an exclusive best kept secret boat tour experience we ever have had. Then the free diving was great as well. The trip to Ko Pu was also amazing and unforgetable. Fantastic service, great fun, and a lifetime experience!!!!! Highly recommend. Four stars!!!!!!!!! Thank you....we will be back for more.

“Great day out to beautiful places by traditional Longtail boat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012 via mobile

Prompt responses to our enquiry e-mails from Susanna.Confirmation of pickup the night before & pickup right on time. Susanna shared some of her own interesting Thai experiences on the journey to Old Town & took us right along the pier for easy boarding.
Only 4 guests, excellent English guide, Dale, & 2 Thai crew.
Good home cooked Thai lunch on a beach on Koh Nuk before moving round to the Emerald Cave. I was unsure about the swim through but Dale reassured me & the Thais said it was too beautiful to miss....& it was! Inside the cave the entrance is high & swming throu' you can see the light at the other end almost immediately. Do it!
Saw two Long Bills on Koh Hai!
Definitely recommend.

“Experience the beauty of Lanta from a whole new perspective”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

A great trip, not following typical tourist routes but uncovering hidden caves and deserted islands, stunning views and awesome experiences. We had such a great day on the Long Tail moving at the perfect pace in traditional style a way from the tourist masses.
Plenty to take in...swimming monkeys, caves, tiny little islands, beautiful coves and beaches, thai picnic and relaxed, yet very competent company. Don't miss out!

“Nice personal tour with some wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012 via mobile

We really like this tour and enjoyed the personal touch of it. The places we have been visited were all great Andrew could stay as long as we wanted. Through years we are been spoiled a bit for snorkeling, but we enjoyed the spots where our Guide has taken us to.

Our Guide introduced us some things about Thai culture, what was good fun anyway.

Booking goes very efficiënt by using old fashioned text messages and phone. Susanne sending as well an email afterwards if we liked the trip or not.

Both of us has a real good day in à small group. We can recommend this one for sure.

“Incredible day and the best was saved until last”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012 via mobile

We had a fantastic experience with Suzanna and her team. There were only 4 guests which was very pleasant vs the crammed alternatives that we have heard about. This is a very personalised tour and if you want to stay longer at any particular place you can. We did the four island tour and it was great. A superb lunch sitting on a secluded beach and lots of snorkelling - I need to add that if anywhere became busy then we would move to a quieter spot which showed us how flexible and accommodating these guys are. We had the Emerald caves all to ourselves which was one of the most amazing experiences of our lives - WOW - without saying too much this is a MUST do!!!!

Susannas communication via email was excellent. Going on the longtail boats is part of a traditional experience and we would highly recommend it as the whole day exceeded our expectations
