          Great trip
          We liked all the places we saw. The snorkelling was great and swimming through the cave was fun. The lunch was served at the last island where the beach was so beautiful. The staff is very kind and attentive.

          Perfect long tail boat trip. Beautiful islands. Great crew. Not to be missed
          Sure the long tail boats may not be for everyone. They are noisy and the sea can get a bit rough but they are iconic Thai vessels and I loved every minute. All stops were well chosen. Lovely scenery, warm waters and lots of fish to see although on our trip they were more easily visible from out of the water than with mask and snorkel. Can’t control the visibility Emerald cave is a must see. Fairly long swim through a dark cave to beautiful lagoon. Life jackets mandatory and crew very helpful and kept everyone safe. Fresh fruit and plenty of water provided. Last stop was the beautiful island of Ko Ngai for delicious Thai buffet on the beach. More swimming and even an opportunity to see hornbills very close. All timings were as advertised and we were picked up and delivered back to our hotel as promised. Can’t fault this trip. Value for money. Recommended!

          Lovely tour despite late hotel collection
          Great tour but late pick-up (40 mins late). However, tour admin team sorted their mistake. Tour was great, beautiful islands visited. Emerald cave was superb. Drenched on the return journey as it was choppy but that was part of the long tail experience.

          Fun time
          I and my two teenaged boys went on this day trip. our guide was Bao and he's amazing. We had a fun time in the long-tailed boat (for us it's better than a speed boat b/c we got sick from speedboat the day prior). We had fun kayaking, relaxing on the beach after lunch and visit some islands. The key one was to feed the monkey that came up to our boat. That was amazing.

          The best tour company in Thailand
          Sak is the nicest person we met in all of Thailand. He is very fair with his prices for tours and activities and we were always picked up on time and treated with the utmost respect. He also gave us some recommendations for dinner in the area and they did not disappoint. Highly recommend!

          Touristy snorkeling trip - basic reefs
          We started in the morning and got picked up at the hotel which worked without any problems. After a 20min drive, we arrived at the peer and got on the longtail boat relatively quick. The boat was overcrowded and therefore downgraded the atmosphere a bit. It took one hour to get to the first snorkeling spot. The landscape on the way was just beautiful. The reefs were OK. We did see several tropical fish, but there are definitely more colorful and diverse reefs. The second stop was at Morakot cave. Interesting cave with an astonishing beach on the other side. However, many boats arrive here - so it's very touristy and we only had 15 min before we had to head back to the boat. Third stop was another snorkeling spot quite similar to the first one. Fourth stop was Ko Ngai - beautiful beach. We had lunch and stayed for about an hour. The lunch was very basic. Afterwards we headed back to Ko Lanta and brought back to the hotel. In total it was a nice experience, but at the same time a bit dissappointing, quite touristy and we would rather explore these spots by ourselves the next time so that we can have a look at everything in our pace.

          Great scenery and beaches!
          WE really enjoyed this tour, the guides were great and had a lot of knowledge of the area and kept us fully informed throughout the day as what was happening and what would be coming up next. Our guide spoke good English also and enjoyed a joke with us that added to the experience. The guides made sure that everyone had time to explore the islands and beaches and stopped at some great spots for snorkelling, all the equipment needed was provided with fresh fruit and soft drinks available. the lunch on the beach was also lovely and plenty of time to chill before returning back to the main land. we enjoyed the trip and thought it was good value for money. I guess the time we went was a quite time as was just out of rainy season and so we had the islands pretty much to ourselves with only a few boats going out daily, i wonder if it would be more busy with more boats going out at peak times, however thinks it worth doing.

          Best Experience
          Booking experience was quick and easy. Pick up from the resort very comfortable ride and friendly service. Clean well maintained boat with new and clean safety equipment. Indescribable beautiful day and weather with the most amazing snorkeling and fish life. Very tasty lunch and cold drinks and plenty time to enjoy being outside in nature. Fresh fruit and water on the boat. Guides was attentive and helpful. Highly recommended!

          Boat was horrible
          The kid handling was super nice but the boat was horrible..i have been snorkeling on boats during my vacations but this was quite bad. The sound of the engine was very loud until it make most of passengers dizzy and nearly vomitting.

          Fantastic family trip
          If you do one thing on this island, go on one of these trips with Rainbow Tours. We have made some incredible memories on this trip. We are a family of 4 (kids aged 11 and 9). We were really well looked after by our tour guide Cham (sorry -I have probably misspelt his name.) He was so friendly and accommodating making sure we saw all the wildlife we wanted to see, extending the tour by half an hour to ensure we had. The highlights were kayaking round the stunning islands and for the kids it was without a doubt the monkeys! The tour on the longboat allowed us to see mud skippers, Brahminy kites and White bellied Eagles. Such a special day.

          A little underwhelming
          It was a fun experience, but it did feel slightly chaotic and the vendors did not really prepare us for the long boat ride and had no safety briefing. Many life jackets on board were faulty, and I had to try on 4 life jackets before finding one that had working straps (though it was still too big for me). No towels were available either during my trip, resulting in my friend and I shivering on the hour-long boat ride in the rain. However, the timing and pace of the entire day was good. We really enjoyed the hours at the national park and the buffet lunch was amazing. Overall, it was a good experience but I would think twice about spending this amount of money again as it wasn't a smooth and pleasant experience throughout.

          Great Day On This Tour
          Overall had a great time on this tour. Went kayaking through a cave and around some islands for about 45 min. Got a lunch all set up for us on another island where we ate and chilled for about an hour. They also gave us fresh watermelon on the boat and water bottles. There was a storm coming so I think our tour ended a bit early. The highlight was definitely getting to feed monkeys and having one jump on our boat.

          The worst tour I ever been to…
          I would give 0 if that would be possible. The boat was really crowded and they were trying to fit over 40 persons in the boat where normally could fit 20-25 persons. It’s super uncomfortable and do not expect any comfort on this tour. Tour guide was providing the only information when we will depart from visited areas. Nothin else. Snorkeling and bathing was painful since it was no shower for the whole day. Absolutely terrible tour…

          Expected kayaking at 3 places and only got 1
          Based on the tour description I thought it was kayak exploring at 3 different islands. Instead it was only at 1 island and then we stayed on the long tail boat looking at other islands. Also thought the tour would be longer as stated ln the details (9-15hours) but ours ended after roughly 6 hours. The boat is super loud and you're on it for a long time, so make sure you're ok with that. Guide asked if we wanted to feed a monkey and they made sure only 1 got on the boat. Super calm and good experience, since I initially feared it would have been mayhem with a whole party of them. Day was as follows: - pick up at hotel by car - Went to the pier and paid 20thb per person (not sure for what) - sailed for a bit to look at an island - sailed to another island and tied the boat to a small hidden beach (saw first monkeys here) - kayaking for about 45min near the island. Sailed inside a small sea cave. - Back on boat we got some watermelon and pineapple slices - sailed to a third Island and had lunch (watch out for those small rogue chili's. Super spicy!) - stayed on island for about 2 hours. Was able to swim and snorkle. Also hammies available for a rest (stay felt a bit long) - left island and headed back to the mangrove near the pier - monkey got on boat to feed - went back to pier and was picked up by a car and dropped off at hotel

          A great day out.
          All of it was good but snorkelling in crystal clear water was amazing. The staff were more than helpful. They were boat crew, life guards, guides and vey friendly. Particularly good with children. I thoroughly recommend this trip. X

        Great trip with helpful guides, got to see a little wildlife as well as monkeys that came up all the way to the boat.

        Halfway through the day we got served a great lunch out on one of the islands close to Koh Lanta.

        Can recommend this trip for families with relativly small children, our 8-year-old manages just fine with the kayak.

        I went with my 2 kids (7 and 9) in the same kayak.
        One of my kids liked to paddling, the other one liked more to feed the monkey that we met.
        The guide Bao was very helpful although he could very little English. He warned when we had to watch out for fallen trees and when more monkeys tried to get reach the kayak. One monkey on the kayak is ok. More can lead to fight.
        Bring some water in the kayak. It's pretty hot.
        After the paddling we got some fruit and water.

        Great experience to do. We chose to do the kayaking, which you follow a guide and he takes you through the mangroves and to see monkeys. He even gave us some food to feed them as they come out to your kayak. Our guide was great he even took photos of us during the trip. My partner hadn't kayaked before and found it tiring as you are out for good hour and half. At the end we were given some fruit and drink while waited for our transfer. We even got to feed some fish while we waited.

        The Tour exactly holds what is advertised. Transfer from and to extensive List of hotels was easy and without any issues. Reaching the Mangroves ok time where we deciced for the Kayak. Guide was nice and took care of the group. He explained wome of the animals and was helpful. You get close to monkeys in a much nicer and to our feeling more animal save situation compared to monkey beaches.

        My wife and I went on the half day tour and had a good time out on the water. Our guide on the kayak was friendly and explained the wildlife in the area as best as he could. The highlight for us was when the monkeys decided to swim to our kayaks, board, and hang out for a while. Our guide was prepared with snacks so the monkeys remained calm and friendly.

        I took my 3 boys aged 9.5, 8 and 5 kayaking through the mangroves to look at the salamander type fish, crabs and to feed the monkeys. It was a very simple tour - nothing that impressive but the monkeys were fun to see and feed. If I had to do it again with young kids I would have chosen the long tail boat because it got hot very quickly paddling out there! Our guide didn’t speak English but I could understand Thai - I had to translate everything for the kids. He was very knowledgeable about the area and could answer all our questions. He kept us safe and explained things very clearly to us. This tour is good to explore a non beach part of Ko Lanta and only takes a few hours including transfer from the hotel.

        The „hosts“ are treating you like cattle: giving you non-verbal directions to move on, looking past you, showing a written note to make you pay, no hello, no good bye - you are not a person, not a visitor - you are a paying nuisance. The kayaks have dirty water puddles in them and you have no choice, but to sit right into them for an hour…the „guide“ speaks no English and would quickly leave you behind when going to and from the one spot, where you will be observing him playing with and feeding monkeys for half an hour. Sad and dirty trip because of the non-welcoming people. The nature itself is wonderful
