Kee Resort - travel desk? Or other option for sightseeing?

Hi travellers. Wanting to book some day tours but not sure if resort is best/ cheapest way to go? Any suggestions? Also read about treetop climbing, has anyone done this and which place would you recommend?

Try travel booths outside on the back road. You will get a better price on the street. Try a few different ones and watch

the price go down lol. Also remember high season the good ones get booked out early. Sue

As Gismo says , check out one of the many tour desks on the streets, resorts rarely, can match the price

If you come out of the hotel and head down the lane toward the beach road, there is a travel kiosk on the righthand side - the lovely young couple operating out there last April (2012) were great. We dealt with the young lady. I was very impressed with her because we wanted to book a driver for a day trip and I was very specific with her about where we wanted to go and that we didn't want any detours etc and that we wanted a safe driver - we ended up with a more mature gentleman who drove very safely (lovely new van too) and took us to exactly where we wanted to go.

We also booked zorbing with her.

She was very helpful all around with all our queries.

Thanks all for your input, will certainly check out the street kiosks. Any recommendations for day trips or snorkelling or other fun teenage stuff to do?

A must do is Phang Na Bay, much prettier than Phi Phi and less crowding of tourists and rubbish.

Elephant trekking, ATV, Jungle splash water park Mai Khao,

Dexter, the Zorbing is close to Patong in Kalim.

There is a Tour desk outside KR Sports next to the Police Station on beach road. It is Phuket Seaside Tours and will give you a way better deal than the Kee Resort will offer.

Often times the street tour desks are a bit cheaper. However, what happens if you have a problem? Good luck on trying to get any refund or even date changes with many of these places. There are literally hundreds of them in Patong. Of course some are quite reputable, but not all.

Booking through the hotel you are staying always gives you someone that you can hold accountable for any problems, mix ups or changes in your schedule. Your hotel generally has someone to help 24/7.

Either go through your hotel or go to a recommended place

Bill, the Tour Booths are a lot cheaper....by sometimes by 50%. Please name any desk or booth you have found that have not given a refund or date change.

Each Tour Booth is registered with TAT. They display the registration number on the signage. If you or any customer have any sort of drama you can contact TAT.
