This was one of if not my favorite trip my last visit to Thailand. The boat trip out to the islands, exploring the caves, the food, the activities and the guides were all great. Definitely worth it if you come to Phuket.

Lots of opportunities to take pictures during the day. The paddle men and crew are obviously very experienced in their job and you feel safe throughout the trip. Nice buffet Thai food. 'Mother' boat needs updating as it quite old and not the most comfortable....More

Wow what an experience for the whole family. My boys aged 11 8 & 6 had a ball. The caves were amazing and swimming from the beach of the boat was fun too. Highly recommend this tour and the staff 5Stars.

Yes we booked through Miss We. Everything was perfect. The driver picks up from the resort on time and is there waiting at the end of the day to take you back to the resort .
