Both tour guides (Lho & Maria) were friendly and helpful. It was a nice experience kayaking & exploring the mangroves at Ao Thalane. We saw the barracuda and shrimps jump out of the water. Lho the kayak guide did most of the kayaking while we enjoyed paddling on and off, while enjoying the beautiful scenary and the amazing nature. The slight drizzle was refreshing and adds a nice twist to our experience. Lho also gave us a short history lesson on the sea gypsies. He also provided dry tubes for us to safeguard our cameras from getting wet! After 1.5hrs of kayaking, we headed for seafood BBQ dinner at the beach. We were served a huge white snapper, prawns, fishballs, bbq chicken, potatos, a marvellous Thai sauce, rambutans & mangosteens! On the way back to the hotel, we experienced writing our wishes on a paper balloon and then lighting it up and sent it up into the air! Simply awesome!!

Lho and Maria arrived on time at 4pm to pick us up from our hotel at Ao Nang. Even though there were only 2 of us, they were happy to take us. We arrived Ao Thalane at about 5pm and went to kayak with Lho for 1.5 hours. Brilliant trip around the mangroves and beautiful view, even though the day was cloudy with a slight drizzle. We didn't see the sunset due to the weather but enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.
The BBQ dinner at the beach was sumptuous and generous. A wonderful experience especially for those who arrive at about 2pm (at the airport) and do not know what to do for half a day in Krabi. We returned to the hotel at 9pm.

After being offered lots of tours for Kayaking we chose Phranang full moon, and I am so glad we did. From picking us up from our hotel until dropping us off, Lho & Maria made us feel very welcome and relaxed.

The kayaking was really enjoyable and Lho stopped often to show us the caves, mangroves, monkeys, lizards etc. Lho also spoke brilliant English and really interacted with us all in the group. The elephant ride was very good and the elephants just did what they pleased rather than someone beating them or ordering them around and generally seemed quite happy. The fresh water lake swimming was revitalising and definately a highlight. The food served at lunch time was gorgeous, massaman curry, barracuda nuggets and fried vegetables with endless rice. To sum it up this trip was amazing value for money, thoroughly enjoyable and a brilliant day out.

Highly recommended!!

My boyfriend and I stayed in Krabi for 6 days and booked for many tours (Phi Phi, 4 islands tour, white water rafting, hot springs+emerald pool) but even though we were expecting less for this kayaking tour, it turned out to be a definite highlight of our trip. It was great fun to challenge ourelves to navigate through the tight corners along the mangroves and caves, with friendly monkeys (they were really docile) even swimming along with us and jumping on our kayaks, perching themselves at the front as if they were 'captains'!

The caves and mountains were beautiful (the pictues of Ao Thalene cannot fully capture its beauty) and the entire atmosphere was really peaceful. We were lucky to be brought around by our ever-jolly and helpful guide, Lho, who really made an effort to make sure we had a good time.

Lunch was pretty decent- thai-style chicken curry, vegetables and fried barracuda with rice. We then headed on to a small natural pool where we amused ourselves with a tarzan-like rope which we could use to swing ourselves into the pool. It was great fun! There was also a natural 'fish spa' for those who prefer to relax.

It might not seem like much at first glance, but it really was a fantastic day for us. No doubt I would recommend this to couples (both those who like to relax or to have fun) with a reasonable amount of privacy. I believe families and friends will enjoy this too if they enjoy being immersed within nature.

Fantastic tour today with the guide called Lho.
Arrived on time. Good knowledge of area. Very good van with aircon for transferring between sites. Excellent food at lunch time even though we are veggie nothing was an issue.
The guide spoke very good English compared to my Thai so communication was not an issue.
We really felt like we got great service and very good value for money. Will book again when we are in Krabi next.
