What an amazing day out and experience during our trip to Thailand. We had two young children with us and our driver was very considerate and helpful to check we were all okay and safe and to chat with our children throughout the trip.
The trip took us to all of the sites that had been mentioned in the itinerary and we were given as much time as we wanted at each spot, never once feeling pressured to move on or to spend longer. Our guide was informative about each of the sites but didn't bombard us with information - the perfect balance.
There were a couple of stops at cafe's where you could cool off and enjoy a drink or lunch.
The secret garden was lovely - just remember some money to pay for your entry.
This was an amazing experience with beautiful views and something our children still talk about. This trip enables you to see areas of the island that you would not be able to see otherwise.

Highly recommend booking onto the smaller, more private tour if you can as the cheaper tours from other companies looked rather squashed in the back of the jeep.

Thank you for an amazing trip - highly recommended.

Our guide Ae was so nice. His English was good enough to give thorough explanations of places we visited. Super friendly, lots of laughs. This was a highlight of our trip, we got to quickly visit multiple locations we would not have otherwise seen.

Highly recommend this adventure!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your off road adventure. This is exactly what this tour is for, to explore hidden gems and cool places that you would never have found alone and without a 4x4 vehicle. Thank you again Michelle

What a beautiful property, loved vibe here it’s got the best view & infinity pool. I stayed in the villa with private pool with my husband and we have the best time here.
Food is sooo good here I mean I can say I had the best food in the property than outside.
Sunsets are so magical here by the pool & beach.
Staff is sweet & helpful. Would definitely recommend this place.

My wife and I had a wonderful day with Palm and our driver for our private 4x4 tour. Just like the picture, you can sit buckled in on top of the cab! We were going to do an around the island tour and saw what was included. It was more city and temples. After 3 weeks in Thailand, we were templed out. This tour went up into the mountains plus we saw a lot of the island. We saw waterfalls, stunning views and a stop at this cool cafe in the middle of the jungle in a tree house! it's called Treehouse Coffee I think. This is not an ATV tour, rather a 4x4 jeep tour. For us this was nice because you can concentrate on the views rather than driving. We highly recommend!

Had a very enjoyable day. It was just the two of us (my husband and myself). Our driver Gay (Gei?) was super friendly and nice, plus a good driver which is important as this trip covers some pretty rough territory. He gave us plenty of time to enjoy each stop on the itinerary, so we never felt rushed. He didn't give us lots of lectures, but whenever we had a question he offered a very interesting and informative explanation, and that was just right for us. All the places visited are picturesque and quite literally off the beaten path.

Amazing fun and a great adventure . The driver talkie ( sorry if i spelt it wrongly) was very nice and kind. Safe and confident driver. He took us up the hill and it has been one of the most scenic rides i have ever experienced .
The waterfalls , the tree bridge cafe , the budhha temple were such beautiful places to see.
Kids enoyed sitting on top of the jeep and the adults did too :)
The lunch at the mountain point was very nice with stunning views. There is a pool there as well for people to jump in.

Would highly recommend this tour to all coming to koh samui to experience some hidden gems.

Thank you Shivikab for choosing to book with Samui Explorer. We are very happy that your family enjoyed the off-road adventure up in the hills of Samui. As you experienced, Koh Samui offers much more than beaches and restaurants, it boasts some of the most amazing views of a lot of Islands in Southern Thailand. Most definitely a family tour for both children and the parents to enjoy the fun together. Thank you again Michelle + our drivers

Spectacular day. Weather was against our side but it didn’t take away from the amazing day we had. Our very cool tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly to be around. Recommended to anyone who’s wanting an adventure into the forest of Koh Samui, a day out for food and culture, or even a break from the beach.

We had such a great day out with 'Palm' who was super helpful and very knowledgeable. We had a 2 year old with us and he went out of his way to make sure she was fine and had a good time too. We got caught in lots of rain but still had a brilliant day. Highly recommended.

Booked a 4x4 off road tour with Michelle from Samui Explorer. Well what can I say …. It was amazing !! We were picked up at the port by palm who was an amazing guide so friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to places we would never have been able to see without this trip. Waterfalls, temple, gardens,tried local fruit, explained about rubber trees. Had lunch at Mountain jungle restaurant which was delicious finishing at a lovely beech. Great communication with Michelle throughout. Thank you

Thank you alisonanderson for taking the time to write a review for us following your off-road adventure. We are super happy that you enjoyed your tour with Palm. As you experienced there is so much more to see hidden away in the hills that so many people miss out on. Cruise ship Passengers are limited to tour options via the ship, so it's always beneficial to contact a reputable Tour agent to arrange a super day on Koh Samui. Thank you again, Michelle
