Lanta Princess Tour
Reviewed January 22, 2012

We have made a one day tour to Phi Phi islands with the Lanta Princess Tour. We booked this tour at the Sala Dan pier and managed to bargain a little bit the final price. Supposedly the tour would include the following: transfer from and to our hotel, snorkel equipment, buffet lunch and fruits, drinking water and sodas, life jacket, national park fee and passenger insurance. They came to pick us up 30 mins. later than the agreed time and we arrived to the boat at the last moment. In fact, the boat is a ferry that takes the participants at the one day tour and also all the passengers of the regular ferry from Koh Lanta to Koh Phi Phi and to Phuket. These passengers leave the ferry at Koh Phi Phi Don.
After this first stop, they took us (around 20 people) to Maya bay in Koh Phi Phi Leh. Here, they told us we couldn't snorkel and we shouldn't go to the beach as a park fee would have to be paid (remember what I wrote before that the final price included the national park fee). They took us instead to the Loh Samah bay where we stopped for one hour to do snorkel. The snorkel was OK: there were lots of colorful fishes, but no corals. From there, there was a path crossing the island to get to the beach at Maya bay, which we did. After the snorkel we were served pineapple and taken to see the Pi Ley bay and Monkey beach, where a colony of monkeys was being annoyed (that was for sure not feeding...) by hundreds of tourists... We were given lunch and taken back to Koh Phi Phi Don, where we stayed for one hour. When leaving, the boat was packed with passengers and working again as a ferry to Koh Lanta.
At the end, the food was good and the sightseeing was wonderful, however we do not recommend this tour operator.

Marketed as a combined island and snorkeling adventure, the tour disappointed us. On the snorkeling side, the equipment was partly not usable due to lack of fins and mold in the tubes. The corals are almost all dead anyway :-(

The spots frequented were totally crowded. The "guide" barely spoke and barely spoke English. Only positive point: Good and sufficient lunch at a nice beach.
