“These guys rock!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We went with ALP for our trip to Phi Phi Island and the Sea Canoe & James Bond. We had smiley Alex as our guide on both days and despite pretty rubbish weather, we all still had a great time. The speedboats were clean, stocked with drinks (water & soft drinks - you are allowed to BYO beers) and he was always happy to answer any questions of explain things along the way. Fresh fruit of pineapple and watermelon were handed out as morning tea and afternoon tea. Lunches were included as part of the fee for the tours. Lots of fun and laughs were had and the 'paparazzi' guys they use to record the fun of the day were also good value. We booked these guys thru Destination Asia via our hotel, but I think the package was set up back in Australia thru flight centre.

“Great customer service”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We booked a day trip to Phi Phi ( with other stops). Our guide spoke excellent English and was full of interesting information. The swimming and snorkeling was excellent and enjoyed by all. At our last stop my 13 year old son was swimming at one of the beaches when he was punctured on the bottom of his foot by something ( some type of fish?). Our guide 'Anun' (I think that is how you spell his name) was fantastic. After checking the deep wound he got everyone back on the boat and arranged for us to be met at the Marina to get to hospital. When we got to the hospital ALP had a representative/interpreter there to meet us and help with everything. As we booked through our resort all hospital costs were covered by ALP and they even arranged for travel to and from the hospital to have the wound dressed each day. Thankyou ALP for all your assistance.

“Pay extra for a better trip”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

We went on this trip to Phi Phi on the recommendation of Manop -a driver who constantly gets rave reviews on here. The owner is supposedly his mate. We got a reasonable discount in low season, but agreed to pay extra to go in a smaller boat.

We got to the pier to find we were on a bigger boat ... Much discussion finally got us moved to a smaller one. The big ones are crowded and disgusting ... The smaller one had less people but not as fast ... I would take the smaller one any day!

The guide was a joke ... Hopeless at explaining things. Other crew were helpful, but no English so not much help!!

The day was rushed and the places visited were just, crowded .... Scenic Maya Bay? No .... A speedboat version of a car park with rubbish in the water everywhere and a very short visit. Want to snorkel or swim? Be quick ... Time is limited! Monkey Bay? Two minute stop ... No monkeys ... Go elsewhere!

We were promised lunch on Phi Phi Don in a main area ... It was at a resort on the opposite side of the island - nothing nearby ... No shopping ... Just a dodgy lunch in a resort. I felt sorry for guests who were staying here - they were over run for a couple of hours by tourists! The ironic part ..... This was the worst stop all day, but we stayed here the longest!! Could have something to do with free food and drinks for boat staff .... They made pigs of themselves!!

Trip back was rough and no effort from crew to help those not feeling well ... The main guide tried to sell DVDs of the day rather than help!

In the end there are better options for these trips .... This company does not deserve your business!!

“Worth it”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

We went on two tours with ALP.
we did the James bond island tour on the 5th September and throughly enjoyed our day - although slight rain, it didn't dampen our day! canoeing through the caves was absolutely amazing, feeling as though we were experiencing a whole new world.
I would suggest to travelers to prepare themselves for the visit to James bond rock, it was not at all as we expected - an amazing sight but ruined by so so many tourists and market stalls beside the beach. (no fault by ALP)
We went on the PhiPhi island tour on 7th September and although the weather permitted us from going to maya bay and bamboo island, we still had a blast! the best part was being able to jump from the top of the boat into the lagoon! and the snorkeling was incredible!
Our tour guide for both tours was 'Andy' which we would like to extend our warmest regards as he made both tours a delight with his witty sense of humour, after our first tour we requested to be on board with him for our phi phi tour.
Thankyou so much for two fantastic and safe trips so we could see some amazing places that we won't forget!
We will travel with you again if we ever return to Phuket!

“Beautiful Caves”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

We went on the James Bond Island tour (not sure of the name) We went on a rainy day which was okay. The trip itself was a blast, beautiful beaches and scenery. I would imagine even more beautiful on a sunny day. The staff were polite enough, however not as informative and enthusiastic as other tours we have been on in Bali and Costa Rica. Overall it was a great trip and I certainly would not dissuade any one from going, in fact I would recommend going. we've been to a lot of countries and these islands are some of the most beautiful sites we have seen
