After reading reviews and deciding which tour operator to go with we decided to go with Simba and we’re glad we did. Yes this is a little more expensive though this is to make up for having a smaller tour group rather than being packed in like sardines on other boats (which in this new covid world a little more space is always welcome) The 5:00am pick up and 6:00am departure whilst on holidays is a little bit of a struggle in the end it is totally worth it as you get to the popular spots before everyone else which is great if you’re wanting to take photos and feel like you have the place to yourself. After you’ve seen all the popular spots and done some snorkelling the last stop is Ko Phi Phi Don where you’ll get to have some Authentic Thai cuisine for lunch, which is delicious and included in the package and afterwards have some time to roam the island before heading back home. After coming to Phi Phi back in 2007 it was a little sad to see the place so empty (due to covid) though I don’t think it will take long until this beautiful place is back in action. Our tour guide Harry and the crew (I forgot their names - the bald one and the smiley one) were legends and made the day. We would comfortably recommend Simba to anyone for a tour. P.s- make sure you say hi to Michael the monkey!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us and share your positive experiences with the Trip Advisor community. It really makes a difference in getting this industry back on it's feet after some very troubling times for Phuket and it's people so heavily dependent on tourism. I will make sure our crew are aware of your accolades for them also. Thank you once again.

I did the Phi Phi sunrise trip and overall had a great time. The breakfast on Bamboo Island, snorkelling, visit to Blue Lagoon and Monkey Island were all amazing. The food you get on Phi Phi Don is also really nice, in a lovely beachside restaurant. I paid 3000 baht and thought it was great value for money. Jane, our tour guide, was *fantastic*. She went above and beyond throughout and really added a lot of fun to the trip. She’s also a great photographer, for the couples and those travelling solo! The boat team were also very nice. There was plenty of assistance for less confident swimmers, and the team were happy to answer as many questions and take as many pictures as desired! I have removed one star here just because of the name. Whilst there are caveats when booking that you might not see sunrise because of the weather etc (fully understandable!) I still think it is a little misleading. We did not leave Phuket marina until after sunrise (which was 06:17 that day), arriving on our first island at around 06:45. So if you are booking with the intention of taking sunrise pictures on Phi Phi islands, this is probably not for you. The booking system on their website has recently undergone some changes, following covid, and so understandably there are some kinks that still require ironing out. When I booked the tour I did not receive a confirmation email. I messaged on Facebook about this and received a prompt and detailed response, assuring me the booking was okay and that this issue would be addressed. Excellent customer service.

Thank you so much for your amazing review. We're really happy to here of your experience in detail, and thanks for taking the time and effort to share your experience with the trip advisor community. I'm sorry the sunrise aspect of the tour was not quite what you were expecting. I noted on our GPS tracker that we left the marina at 6:11 so a few minutes late. Our standard tour format is planned to enjoy the sunrise from the boat while en-route to Phi Phi islands, not from the Phi Phi Islands themselves. The time required to get there before sunrise would involve a 530am departure from the marina at the latest, and this would introduce safety issues, motoring along at relative high speed in much darker conditions. Thanks again for your feedback! Regards, Paul

My family and I (daughters 4 and 5) went on a private sunrise speedboat tour of the Phi Phi Islands. We did a lot of research and spoke to a number of companies before choosing Simba. We were not disappointed. We were met at the Marina just before 6am by the friendly staff and crew members. The boat was modern and clean and the crew were informative, professional and did everything they could to make it a special experience for the whole family. We saw the sunrise from the speed boat before visiting a quiet Maya bay, swimming in a crystal clear lagoon, snorkeling (and seeing Nemo) and then enjoying the white sands and clear water of Monkey beach. We had a very high quality sit down meal at a beach front restaurant and then had some more snorkeling time before a last stop at Bamboo Island, which was beautiful. The whole experience was fantastic and we have some very special memories to take away. Thank you to everyone at Simba Sea Trips for a paradise Phi Phi trip!

An amazing trip! We accidentally misunderstood pick-up time and they were very accommodating to circle back around and grab us. The day was awesome, small group that made a huge difference in quality of trip. We saw other tours packed into boats. I would def book this again.
