Owner description: After 12 years designing and developing one of the World's most highly awarded Ecotourism companies, John "Caveman" Gray goes his own way by forming "John Gray's SeaCanoe" with 18 of his most loyal and experienced guides. "After 12 years in Phuket, the experiment ran its course and I was packing for Polynesia," says Gray, "but when all these guides showed up, I had no choice but to stay and do another start-up."

I'm not usually one for group tours because it's hard to design something that's good for everyone...usually you end up with something that's just mediocre for the lowest common denominator but the Hong by Starlight Trip was just terrific. It was well organbized, well run, safe and efficient. Everyone did a fine job to make the customer's day special. Many thanks from me and my wife for some very special memories!

Certainly one of the best experiences in Thailand - knowledgeable guides, who clearly love and respect nature!
Food was delicious and well presented.
Definitely a not-to-miss outing when in Phuket region!

If you only do 1 excursion whilst in Phuket make it this one. From the minute we were picked up from our hotel at 10.30am to the minute we got back at 9.30 pm it was non stop fun. The whole day was organised by a first class company. The food was brilliant and the guides were excellent and so knowledgable and made the kayaking experience a memory we will never forget.

Great experience on the Hongs by Starlight trip. It definitely seems pricey, but I do think it was worth every penny. It was one of our favorite experiences on our Thailand trip, well run from beginning to end. Weather wasn't the best, but everyone still made the most of it and we really loved it. Food was great too, which is obviously also a plus. Our guide was Sun, who was AWESOME! Really loved the end of the night, where you make offerings from natural items and put them into the water at night. A must do experience while you're in Thailand!!

We have done the classic Hong by Star with this company on the recommandation of the Lonely Planet. At the beginning, we have found it a bot expensive (4,000 bath per person), but the price is 100% justified once you do the tour.
They organize the pick-up from the hotel (we were in Phuket Town), the lunch and dinner buffets are included, and the food is very good! The tour itself is very well organized, with professional guides, lots of explanations, and respect the nature.
The tour is done in the afternoon, to avoid most of the crowd. Highly recommended experience near Phuket, for everyone!
