“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

Highly recommend for day tripping outside of Koh Lanta. Cyril does a fantastic job balancing being a 'guide' and someone you feel loves and knows Thailand. Even his wife Jup was helpful in setting up transfers for us and cooking the yummy lunch!

We went to Koh Rok for the day and couldn't recommend it enough! He took us to an empty & pristine beach away from bigger tour operators. Spending lunch and time there was amazing-we had a blast and relaxed while he explained a bit about the island and area of Thailand we were in. Snorkeling around the island was nice and he even dove in and found some interesting creatures for us to take a closer look at. I would have never seen some of the things he showed us!

While they are more expensive than some of the 'group' tours you see advertised around Koh Lanta-don't think twice about spending the extra money to get a fabulous day away from the crowds!!! His insight is really what you get and that is worth it. Thanks-

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

This was a great tour. Cyril goes the extra mile– great food, pointing out specific sea creatures, sharing interesting details. The tour is a bit rustic; if you're looking for 'authentic' and interesting in a more intimate setting, this tour is perfect.

“Great day out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

Cyril and the captain were brilliant, timing our trip so we avoided most of the crowds. They showed us specifically where to see clown fish in anemones which was lovely. Lunch by Cyril's wife was fantastic too. We booked to go privately with just our group of 5 and can't recommend it enough!

“Absolutely fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, my girlfriend and I booked Lanta Dream and Paradise for a day. We chose the 4 Island trip and we were not disappointed. Cyril was the perfect guide, and he did everything to make sure we had the best experience. He also made sure that we visited the sights at the best possible times, in order to avoid all the big tourist boats. We were picked up from the hotel, and dropped off again, with no problems at all. For lunch, Cyril served his wife's homemade green curry and fried vegetables. Yum. The captain on the boat was highly competent, and he had a very infectious smile the whole day.

We would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
