Su is an excellent driver and guide, very knowledgable and can recommend the best deals for anything you need.

Speaks great English and it was a pleasure to converse with him.

If you need a van in Phuket for a pleasant, comfortable and A/C chilled ride he's your guy.

You can contact him directly on. +66(06)872767113

Best driver in Phuket.

A wonderful experience. We showed up to Thailand with no agenda and no plans. “Su” was more then helpful and he made our trip one to remember. “Su” made us feel like locals gave us tips on what to do and set every thing up for us. “Su” took us to places and had us experience things in Thailand we would of never found on our own. His English is excellent and he is very informative. If you plan on visiting Thailand you must contact “Su” and let him make your experience memorable.

Su was a superb guide and driver - ultra helpful and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommended his services.

If you need a driver and guide for the day, do yourself a favour, get in touch with Su - he’s responsive (we used WhatsApp) and highly competitive.

Thanks Su - will look forward to the next time.

We hired Mr. Su for airport transports and a full day tour. He made great recommendations on things we could do and the best order to do them. He provided water and made stops for us to pick up provisions. He was prompt, friendly, helpful and we greatly enjoyed chatting with him! Highly recommend!

We used Su's services twice. Including, a 3 hour drive from Phuket to Krabi. Su was professional, friendly and informative.

He had a lot of suggestions and basically felt like driving with a friend.

We also stopped along the way to grab a bite.

Su made sure to arrive on time, helped with everything we needed. I would definitely use Su's services if I need a taxi or a tour guide.

My family and I used Su for 2 days during our trip to Phuket. He picked up up from Mai Khoa at no extra charge (many drivers charged 400-600 bht). He was cheaper than all drivers that I contacted. We absolutely loved Su! He speaks good English and is very informative and friendly. He would answer all the historical/cultural questions that we had about Thailand and told us many different fun facts. He let us pick exactly where we wanted to go and did not push any agendas that he might of had. He made recommendations but was not forceful at all. He had cold water in his car that he offered to us for free, moist face wipes after we got sweaty in the sun, and also offered umbrellas to us when it was too hot. Also he has WiFi in his car! Su is absolutely the best! I will Be recommending him to everyone!

There are tour guides, and then there are those who have an ability to connect and make a trip move from the category of good to great! Su is definitely the latter!

As a single tourist, I was running into some difficulty in terms of finding someone to show me around Phuket at a short notice. Little did I know that I would stumble on to a driver who would exceed my expectations on all fronts.

One of the greatest things about Su, is that he is a skilled listener(of what you like) and stays a step ahead of you the whole time. Efficient and flexible! Not to mention more than reasonable in terms of cost in the service which he provided. Su found out immediately that I was someone who loved vista points... I have to say that I have not seen more beautiful vistas of the island. We had the opportunity to visit the Tiger kingdom where we visited tigers which you could actually pet with your own hands! Su also took me to some great spots for food which were immaculate and dialed into great service. After these spots, we were able to go on to visit the Celebration temple. Instead of just simply dropping me off, Su took the time to help me understand about the meanings behind many of the artifacts which were displayed. He also explained to me about how the temple actively relates to residents in their spiritual life. We then continued.

The Litmus test for Su... was when I had an unfortunate accident (due to my own lack of foresight) The accident necessitated a trip to the local hospital. My driver guide, Su, remained with me the whole time(right by my side), acted as a liaison between me and the other parties involved. Su never jumped in until necessary, but was able to translate with ease from my English to Thai (reminding of an insurance situation to the Hospital personnel) I paid nothing!... We were even able to resume our tour into the evening (by my insistence) while noting the rest of the Doctors instructions! We adapted just fine (Thanks to Sus' adaptability) The day ended off a big success. Recently, I just made plans to return to Phuket! I contacted Su with a request for advice.... One trip was long over, and one trip was way in the future, but Su wasted no time in getting right back to me with an "Honest suggestion" taking into consideration my prospective location and what I wanted to do. I can't wait to return to Phuket and spend some quality time with my tour guide friend. Su... You are the greatest!

After reading many positive reviews of Mr Su, we decided to book him for 6 hours of local Phuket sightseeing. The communication was prompt and courteous and he even sent a suggested itinerary. Just to clarify, he said HE was available and was looking forward to it. On the morning of the tour his 'brother in-law' turned up saying Mr Su wasn't available and he would be taking us. Whilst there were no problems with the driver or service, the reason we booked Mr Su was we wanted to know a bit about where we were visitng and Phuket in general - not just dropped off and "I'll pick you up here when you're finished." Before posting this feedback I did email Mr Su to suggest he give his customers the option of proceeding or cancelling should he not be available but he hasn't responded, hence me posting this warning to just be aware...happy travels!

It was our first trip in Phuket and we are a party of 4 person.

We stayed at Burasari Hotel Patong and booked our driver from a tour desk just outside our hotel (in front of 7-eleven store).

They offer day tours, and minibus rental or car rental service.

Mr. John was our driver, he speaks fluent English and Hokkien.

Had a full day and half day tour with him and he was very helpful and responsible, and flexible with our itinerary.
We could specify some places to visit, as long as it is within the booking hours, e.g.. lunch at Mor Mu Dong restaurant.

Overall it was a very pleasant experience and we would recommend anyone who needs a driver to contact him. If you stay near Patong, he is always there very early around 9 am just in front of the tour desk, next to Burasari Hotel.

The rates were reasonable too, around 1700-1800 for 8 hours. If you need longer hours of booking, do negotiate for a package, of course the rate will increase a bit too.

Driver Name: Mr. Adisak Wormglaksanapan (John).
Tel : 09 2243 5214 , or +669 2243 5214 (international call).

We also booked the airport transfer from hotel-airport with them. We had a 6 am airport transfer booking for an early morning flight, and our driver turned up on time.
