Great tour for a great price. WE booked in town from a stall. Pick up was a pain.. in all over 1 hour.. but otherwise for 23 usd.. with lunch and transport and 4 islands and scuba gear.. what a deal and though it was rush rush, it was still pretty good ! would recommend them but ask about private tour if you are a large group.. maybe cheaper ?

We booked Phi Phi Island Tour BEFORE reading all the Barracuda reviews here so we were very nervous on what to expect. At the end of tour, I can safely say that most of the negative review written are just exaggerated. We don't feel like "a herd of cattle" at all. We were picked up at our hotel promptly at the specified time. Dropped off at Aonang Beach and given a sticker each. Within minutes, safety briefing was conducted and off we went on the boat. It's not overcrowded. Ample room to seat. More than one bottle were provided. A couple of sponge cake were also thrown in. Orange juices (albeit bottled ones) was also providded. Tour guide was very friendly and able to answer some questions from the passengers. Explained clearly why we will not be diesmbarking on monkey island. Gave ample time on all snorkelling spots and beaches. At Phi Phi Don, she explained the impact of tsunami and how the locals reacts. Buffet lunch was great. Not many choices but nice food. More than enough for everybody. We took this tour on 10th December (peak period) but still feel it's nicely organized. I'll truly be surprised if anyone willing to fork out more money just to be on a boat with lesser people. Go with the medium crowd (20-30 ppl) and at the end of the day, you'll have more friends.

Our hotel booked us on a tour to Koh Phi Phi with Barracuda tours and things started off well, the hotel pickup was promt and in a decent mini bus. However that was the highlight.
When we got to Ao Nang we waited on the street for around 20 minutes with no one telling us what we were doing or waiting for. Eventually with the whole street full we followed our guide to the boat. 60 people crammed onto a boat which could only handle 30 at max. The first stop was Bamboo Island which was beautiful however we only had 20 minutes to enjoy this little bit of paradise and by the time 60 people had disembarked it was time to board again.
Went to Maya bay which was beautiful just crowded with far too many people but this isn't barracuda's fault. 30 mins later we were off.
We were told next stop was monkey beach. Well we stopped about 50 Metres away for 2 minutes, could just about make out monkeys but really wasn't a stop

Lunch was on the main island which was OK for a buffet however the toilets were in a hotel room so not good.

Overall there is nothing positive about the tour, poor organisation, over crowded boat, minimal time at each place and felt like we were cattle being hearded around. Saw many other tour operators on similar size boats with 20 people or lesson board who actually stopped and had time at each place

If u want safety for island tours pay more with a decent operator but simply avoid these guys. A bunch of unprofessional guys. We went for phi phi island tour & the boat was overpacked, Some guys didn't have place to sit. 2 of them were actually sitting on the cooler box & a couple at the edge of boat. Shame!! would never go again with them.

Booked the Hong Island Cruise by speed boat. Paid 1000 bhat for adult and 800 bhat for kid.
Had no complaints about the hotel transfer. We are lucky enough that the speedboat is not crammed like sardines as per other reviews.
Food was good (maybe we were hungry) and sufficient supply of cold drinking bottled water.
