Booked a tour through Green Andaman based on the reviews and claims on their website. I was totally disappointed and would not recommend them to anyone. They claim that they do tours for small groups of people and not over in crowded but it was completely the opposite. Communication was ok until I made the payment after that the communication was extremely disappointing. We booked through Green Andaman to avoid the bulk tour companies but to our surprise they have transferred our booking to a mass tour company called Sea Star. If we were informed that they do not operate their own tours at this time if the year we would have booked elsewhere. There was no communication about this even after the payment was made. We were waiting and waiting for the van pick up from the hotel in the morning and by accident discovered that our names were on another tour companies tour list. The van driver insisted that he was not from Green Andaman and we would be picked up by a different van but in the end, we figured out that Green Andaman has simply transferred us to another tour company without informing anyone. We wasted around 30 mins due to this and the other people in the van also wasted their time because of this. The tour with Sea Star is definitely not for small groups and it’s a bulk tourist operation. People are packed into 35 seats + boats with very limited space. The tour itinerary with Sea Star was completely different to what we booked with Green Anadaman tours. The registration, group briefings, issue of snorkel gear, taking photos, etc. took a long time and the boats did not actually leave the pier until around 10 AM! With a very large group getting people on and off the boat took for ever and only really spent about 30 mins snorkelling at 3 different locations. So, for a whole day you only spend 1.5 hours in the water. When we finally arrived back at the pier, we wanted to get back to our hotel quickly to view the sunset by the beach. We were informed this is not possible and we had to wait until all the people who went on the tour finished the dinner and then it was time for the vans to leave. The vas back to the hotels were very poorly organised as well. All the vans seem to go to all the hotels instead of being grouped by hotel. We had to tour many hotels before we finally arrived at our hotel around 7 PM. Overall, very disappointed with Green Anadaman and their lack of communication and honesty. If they simple informed us that they are not doing tour on their own we would have gone elsewhere. Sea Star tried their best but their tours are ok if you don’t mind massive group tours. We later talked to other people in the hotel later and found out that some of the others had a much better experience. The hotel recommended Tour was through Love Anadaman Tours and our only wish is we went with their recommendation. We noticed at the snorkelling spots they have their own speed boat and that boat was not overcrowded like ours. Highly recommend to avoid Green Andaman Tours at all costs!

Our family (including 2x kids) stayed in Kaho Lak for 6 glorius days, and this was the only time that we really stepped out of the resort... and what a day it was. Our guide (Wirathon) collected us from the hotel @ 0700 and kept us entertained during the 90 minute drive to the small pier. From the outset we could tell he was a great guy. We boarded our longtail boat, which chugged through the mangroves, before heading out into the open expanses of the jaw-dropping Phang Nga Bay. We headed straight for Khao Phing Kan (more commonly known as James Bond Island... which is a sight to behold. Due to the early start, our boat was the second on the island for the day, hence we were treated to unspoiled views. Definitely worth the jarringly early alarm clock... and an experience my family will not forget in a hurry. From there, we boated to a small adjacent island, where we went sea canoeing through Lot Cave. This was enjoyable enough, if a little pedestrian... and we felt slightly pressured by the local staff (they do the paddling - I don't think you can take your own canoe out) to leave a tip. We were happy to do so, and probably would have anyway... but it's never comfortable when it's made so obvious. Following that, we were taken to Koh Panyee - a small island town with a floating market - for lunch. The food was abundant and generally flavoursome and It's great that the tour swings through here, to help support the local fishermen. The views of the island were very pretty... and the shade was a welcome hiatus from what was becoming quite a hot January day. After lunch, our boat headed back to the pier and Wirathon drove us to Wat Suwan Khuha, which is a Buddhist temple in a cave. Many monkeys abound outside, and you can but fruit to feed them. Careful though as - if you're not looking - they'll sneak up and literally rip it out of your grasp. In all, an interesting end to the tour. Wirathon drove us back to the hotel, and it must be said that he really helped make this day so special for us. He is a genuinely kind, funny man. The kids loved him and I would wholeheartedly recommend that you ask for him by name. Definitely a great day trip, especially if you have kids. Do it..!!

The bamboo rafting was really fun for me and my kids also (3 and 4 year old) and the only "problem" was that the trip was too short :) Trip to the waterfall at the moment (with low water levels) is nice, but you cannot really swim there. The turtle conservation center is nice but nothing spectacular. All in all, a nice trip, especially the bamboo rafting.

This was a great experience we really loved it. The only problem was the low water for the bamboo rafting. This made it harder for the workers but not for us it was great fun. We also got to bathe the elephants and feed them. Just take plenty of mosquito cream.

We first drove to the turtle sanctuary. Some of the turtles are beautiful and the little ones are quite cute. Next stop was the bamboo rafting. The water was quite low, so it was a relaxing nice floating event. Took maybe half an hour on the water. As stated before you get wet on the raft. Make sure you have shoes that may get wet. Other luggage could be left in the van during the rafting. Afterwards we got some fruit and water which was included in the price. Last stop was the waterfall which wasn‘t spectacular probably due to the lack of rain. There‘s lots of rocks and it‘s hard to get into the pool so nobody from our group felt like bathing there and we left after taking some pictures. Our guide was very nice and funny. All in all I liked the tour. Since I didn‘t have a car or scooter it was the only way for me to get around. Bamboo-rafting could have been longer.
