Absolute Asia Tours did an incredible job on our tour of Thailand, and we felt like we got much, much more than we paid for. The tour itself was nothing short of amazing. Tour guide Tony was knowledgeable and made everything interesting, and she knew when to stand back and let us experience things on our own for a bit. Front door service, always the best table, and other special treatment. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Absolute Asia Tours. Awesome!

Our day tour with Mr Tu organised by @Samui tours and travels was an amazing experience. We were picked up from the hotel at the said time. Once we reached the pier,we were served light breakfast (toast,tea/coffee,fruit juice). We then got on the boat & it departed on time. We were about 20 people on the boat including the staff. The guide & other staff on the boat were humble & answered all our questions politely throughout the tour. Safety was well taken care of. Snorkeling gear & shoes were available on the boat (just in case you forgot yours or didn't have time to buy one). We had sufficient time for snorkeling at Ko Tao(45mins) & Japanese garden(45mins). We then moved to Sairee hut beach for lunch (decent buffet with ice cream, arranged by the organisers).There was a good stock of water and soft drinks on the boat and beer too(80baht/can). Our last visit was to Nangyuan island where we spent 1.5hrs hiking(to the viewpoint) and just chilling out. Once we were back at the pier, we were served fresh fruits & juices and safely dropped off at our respective hotels. The entire experience was totally worth it. And, most of all, the team that took care of it all were super organised and informative. They were able to point out where we would get the best snorkeling experience and they were spot on. I highly recommend Mr. Tu for a smooth and a great experience.

I’ve looked and researched extensively before choosing to move forward with @ Samui Tour and Travel to go forward with the National Marine Park Tour, as there are many options available and many reviews out there. Most tours will provide either a speed boat with 30 people or a big boat that carried upto 60 people, as someone who likes to explore and truly enjoy each experience, it didn’t make sense to go with a big group. As such, I reached out to @ Samui tour and Travel and asked a lot of questions about possibly doing a smaller tour with a max of 14 people per speed boat, and have gone back and forth until I was happy with all the answers and had clear understanding of how the trip would look like. I was really lucky, as in the speed boat tour there were only 6 of us as passengers on the tour, which worked out perfectly. The fee for this tour was slightly more expensive than the amount you’ll find online for the more crowded ones and frankly it wasn’t expensive at all for the experience we had and had been able to enjoy the overall experience a lot more. I paid 4,500Baht. The more private tours route is slightly different than the ones you’d see online where they take the most tourists to certain locations, this way we avoided the crowds during the whole trip. It was awesome! We did start out with snorkeling at our first stop, then got into the Marine Park and saw all the amazing and different rock formations, then we headed to the famous Emerald Lake - where a scene of a James Bond movie was filmed - to access the lake, there is a fairly moderate hike on some very steep stairs (going up and down); it’s preferable you wear closed toe shoes, and the hike can burn your quads more than anything but not impossible to do if you’re moderately fit. After the hike we were meant to go to a spot to kayak, and our guide wanted to give us more chance to see more beaches since we were a small group, unfortunately the weather changed and as a result we couldn’t kayak (it was something I was really looking forward to but unfortunately there was a chance for rain that day and on a short trip, I took the chance!) So the plan changed we headed to have lunch at a really beautiful and authentic resturant at an edge of an island; it’s called Koh Palauy, and we were served with a buffet of different options between chicken, fried seafood, and salads and a really yummy chicken soup as well. They did ask us of food allergies before we headed to the Resturant. After lunch we headed to one of the beaches and decided to stay there as it rained quite heavily for a bit, the weather since then hadn’t changed much from around 2pm; it didn’t unfortunately cut the trip short, and we were back to Koh Samui by 4pm exactly. It didn’t change how amazing the overall experience was and would definitely recommend booking with @ Samui and Travels. They were quick to respond to my emails, provide information as needed and to me that was very important to choosing a company to book with! Ps: I booked through email, they don’t have an option on trip advisor for this particular trip I believe. This is what the original itinerary looks like: 9.00 pick up 9.30 depart koh samui 10.30 snorkeling koh wow 12.00 coastal cruises of the national park 12.45. Discover the lake and view point 13.45. Thai lunch at koh paluay 14.45 swimming , kayaking, relaxing on the beach 16.00. Back to koh samui 17.00. Transfer back to hotel Despite the weather in the end, it was a great trip and I am glad I booked with Koh Samui @Tour & Travel!
