“Fantastic Company - service at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

We used this company non stop and were impressed with everything. They picked us up from the airport on time, with great service, and did the same on the way back. The fare was cheaper than public taxis, but more importantly, we felt safe and secure. Both drivers were courteous and great on the road.

We did two trips with the company also. The first was the all day Khao Sak adventure, which was just great. We had the BEST guide ever! He was so attentive and gave my 9 year old daughter so much attention and information throughout the tour. Absolutely great, and couldn't have asked for better. He continually watched the entire group and made everyone feel special and welcomed.

The second trip was the elephant bathing tour where we were able to ride the elephants to the water and then we rode them into the water. Talk about the adventure of a lifetime! Truly great, and our guide was there on hand to attend to our needs.

The email communication was excellent both in and outside of Phuket. Every query was answered quickly and efficiently. This is the sign of a great company.

This company deserves the ratings it is getting. Without a doubt we would use this company again. Thanks for a spectacular time in Khao Lak. When we return we will definitely use your service again.

“Amazing time in Khao Lak!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

My wife and I just returned from our Honeymoon in Thailand and I was inspired to write my first tripadvisor review. We scheduled several excursions with Khaolak Vista months before arriving in Thailand. The first thing that I noticed was how great Toto was via email. He explained how everything would work and assured me that all the outings were booked. We arrived at Phuket airport late and had to wait at immigration for some time (we also arrived at 1am) and I was terrified that our driver would have left. To my immense surprise, he was still waiting when we exited the airport and took us promptly to our hotel on Bang Niang beach. The next day, we had a half day elephant ride and bathing to attend. Ton (spelling?) picked us up from the hotel along with a couple of Australian couples. Ton was fantastic and provided interesting stories throughout the trip. We thought it couldn't get any better....but we hadn't met Oil yet. Oil was our guide when we went to Phang Nga Bay to see James Bond Island. Oil is Ton's daughter and had a wonderful demeanor. Her English was fantastic and she told wonderful stories throughout the trip. We had more fun during our day with Oil than any other day of the trip. Pon took us to Khao Sok national park for a tour of the rainforest. We were his only patrons that day and he provided great personal service to us both. Pon went out of his way to add things for us to do when we had to wait for a large group in front of us. Finally, Khaolak Vista arranged our trip to the Similan Islands with another company. It was clear that we were not longer dealing with Khaolak Vista, as the service just didn't compare. We missed them so much on that last outing. So...I just wanted to say thank you so much for making our trip to Thailand so memorable. I HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone. If you see Oil when you go...Ask her what the Thai word for Beautiful is!! Tell her that Daniel and Laura say it is WOW!

We did the one hour elephant trek. this was okay if you have not done Elephant trekking before, but just went through a rubber farm and we thought it was going to be the National Park. tour operators were very friendly and informative though.

“Excellent tour of Phang Nga Bay and much more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Took this tour with Ton and he wins the prize for the most personable, energetic guide we met. We spent the day with him visiting all the places pictured here plus the canoe trip thru the caves and thru the mangroves. Ton seems to know just about everybody and he was a lot of fun to be around. The lunch he treated us to was outstanding - he had us set up at our own private table and within minutes all these plates of food arrived, drinks...incredible.
