Somporn Day Tour
Ranked #135 of 213 Tours in Phuket Town
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Mr Porns english is quite good for a Thai and we have used him as our exclusive driver on 7 Phuket trips. He has always got us the best seats to shows and tours and never suggested shopping unless we asked for it. We have recommended him to many people.

We had been looking forward to this beautiful area of he world and we are now left with memories of an annoying driver/guide and a very frustrating day. Mr. Porn (That's really what his name is on his business card) said his English was good and that he would take us wherever we wanted to go. Not!!! His had a very limited English vocabulary. (We're not the type of travelers who think everyone should speak English, but if you're a guide and you tell us you speak English well, we expect at least a 3rd grade level speaker.) He repeated the same script over and over and over again no matter what question we asked him. If he told us that he worked at the Holiday Inn one time, he repeated it a dozen times. Instead of taking us to sights, he wanted to take us to shops and places where he could make a commission. We were not on a shopping trip. We wanted to see things in Mr. Porn's country. We saw very little and we finally cut the "tour" short and told him to take us back to town where we walked around and enjoyed the atmosphere there. My advice: Book a tour online based on the recommendations from TripAdvisor readers. We'll do that anytime we travel. We scored 15 out of 10 with Mumbai Moments by paying attention to TripAdvisor readers before we arrived in Mumbai. So pay attention to me: Do NOT use Somporn Day Tours with Mr. Porn in Phuket Town.
