Driver for the day for touring

Hi

Does anyone know of a reputable company where we can hire an english speaking driver for the day to take us touring the island. There are 4 adults and we would like to choose what we want to see. Would need a mini bus not just a car as don't want to be crammed.

We are staying at Muang Samui in Chaweng Beach.

Thanks BoardsPerth

Thanks for your reply. I have contacted Mr Samui but unfortunately his small minivan is too small for 4 adults. It would be okay for 2 adults though.

I have also contaced Tours Koh Samui and they have a proper minivan which will suit us better. More expensive but more to our needs.

I would seriously recommend hiring a hi ace at the airport , samui is really easy to drive around, traffic nowhere near like that in Phuket, would be the cheapest and best option, last time we were there was for a wedding, we hired a hilux, it fitted 10 people 5 in the cab and 5 in the tray :)

Hi Curl,

He was fantastic and has just added a mini bus / people carrier to his collection. I would highly recommend him.

When you contact him tell him Lynda & Adam recommend him as he likes personal recommendations - he will take great care of you :-)

Yes, Mr Samui (Suphot)

http://mrsamui.webnode.com/

We booked Suphot for a half day tour and we would recommend him to all.

Provides fantastic service and very good English.

Took us for durian and lovely Thai lunch by the beachside.

Really enjoyed ourselves on our anniversary.

Suphot lets you do what you want...we stopped for a foot massage.
