Absolutely rude staff, this person shouts in the boat and harass its customers. On my trip, they provide a snorkel and it was such a poor quality that it went off as soon as I entered water. Still, I offered him to buy a new snorkel or pay him THB 750, cost of new snorkel. But this guy asked for... More

Paid 1000THB for a trip to Hong Island and other surrounding islands with Wangsai off of Ao Nang, Krabi. Picked up from hotel around 8am prompt. Transported to harbour and registered for trip/insurance. Around 9am, we embarked the speedboat and set off for our destination, weather was sunny at this time. However, no safety briefing provided at all. Life jackets... More

They do NOT take you to the main central area of Phi Phi Island! They take you round the back of the Island where there is nothing to see! Just a few lunch restaurants. This goes for all speedboat tours, not just this company. They are just using the name 'Phi Phi' just so you can claim to have been... More

Tour typically includes visit to Phi Phi and nearby scenic spots like Bamboo Island, Maya bay etc. Boats are convenient and fun ride at 50kmph, if not over loaded. 25-30 perhaps will be a good crowd. Lunch is generally at Arida restaurant, which even though is at a huge scale, but well organized.

We booked the 4 island tour. When we arrived at the dock, there was not a lot of organization to get all of the tour boats out quickly, They yell out names (keep in mind all the different languages) until all people are accounted for. This could be streamlined much better. Once on the boat, you head out to Pranang... More

Description including hotel transfers speedboat to bamboo island snorkelling equipment , lunch water fruit and a full day on the island to swim snorkel and then sunbathe what could go wrong? In practice this was a waste of money, a seed boat... More

I enjoyed my boat tour, but Thailand has a serious problem with safety. In one week, there were 2 separate boat fatalities and another speed boat ran over a diving instructor who had to have his leg amputated. Another person was thrown across the boat and was worried enough about his back that he refused to leave the boat without... More
