“Koh Samui Cycling trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

I loved this cycling trip around Koh Samui. Its too easy to just stick to the beach and the resort and not ever see what life in Koh Samui is really like for the locals. This trip was well off the beaten track and showed a side to the island that very few travellers ever bother to see. I was travelling by myself but Adam was more than happy to accommodate just me on this trip which was fantastic. Got picked up from the hotel and went to the other side of the island to cycle through the back roads of Samui, through beautiful scenery and local areas. The bikes were well equiped and comfortable. Along the way stopped at a great little restaurant for a well earned meal. The day ended by a refreshing dip in a waterfall. I almost forgot where I was for the day, it was all a far cry from Chaweng beach and made a great escape for the day and proved there is more to Koh Samui than shopping and beachside massages. Adam was very friendly and a great host and was very accommodating. This trip is highly recommended!

“Scuba Newbie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

At 46 years old I went scuba diving for the first time. Adam, my dive instructor, was wonderful. When it was time to dive, I was having second thoughts and wanted to stay on the surface for some glorified snorkeling. As I relaxed and got the hang of it, Adam took me lower and lower. He intuitively knew when to hold on to me and when to let me go exploring. It was amazing. I can't thank Adam enough!

“Lovely personalised and professional experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Rainbow Scuba is a small and personalised operation run by Adam Preston. We started with two of us planning to try for our diving certification in June. Adam was really helpful and patient as we made arrangements for the trip. We kept changing our minds about the trip/courses we were going to do and had additional friends joining us last minute, all which Adam accommodated in his signature calm and unfazed style. He answered our emails patiently even while he was on holidays.

Adam was exceedingly patient with us when the actual scuba course started as we had discomfort both in the pool and open water. Safety and comfort was always the utmost priority with Adam. Although we did not manage to carry out as fully planned, largely due to our novice ears and unexpected weather, Adam was most accommodating and encouraging.

He also brought us to this lovely cafe Art Cafe by June which serves hearty healthy meals without MSG. All which added to our lovely experience in Samui.
