Booked this due to the good reviews on trip advisor before we left the UK. Elizabeth was very good at responding to e mails and was very informative.
On the day we were collected early by our guide - and told we were going to travel to the boat in a tuk tuk as the driver was "sick", this was ok though and no big drama.
Conversation was stilted with our guide - Sophie I think. We travelled to Hong as arranged and went into the lagoon which was beautiful - we got off the boat and had a swim which was lovely - however we were not given any idea of how long we would be there for or when we should get back on the boat. We got back on and by this time the driver of our boat was chatting to another driver - so we waited ten minutes for him to finish his conversation and then moved on.
We visited other islands which I can't tell you the names of - as we weren't told. On one there were fish that gather around you if you feed them bread - Sophie had bread with her but we were not told about this, I saw it in the basket afterwards. On Hong we smoked on the beach - only seeing the signs afterwards about being fined 2000bht - Sophie knew we smoked and failed to mention there are smoking areas. Also we were not warned about the coral being in shallow areas so I cut my foot. I would have thought these were basic things a guide would point out and seen as how that's what we were paying for I was disappointed. She also only once offered half heartedly to take a photo of us together.
Elizabeth had e mailed asking if there was any food dislikes we had, I mentioned that i was not keen on spicy food - on the day we were presented with curry, some vegetables that were spicy and generally food I couldn't eat due to the spices - so my response was disregarded..
To be honest - you can go down to the long tail boat offices and privately rent a boat for around 2000bht and they will take you where you want, only difference is you would have to buy your own food - around 200bht. We paid andaman 6000 baht and did not think this value for money at all.
