    What people are saying about Krabi

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Well worth the early morning start and extra money!!
    This tour was absolutely incredible. There were only six people on our tour, so it is definitely worth it to pick an early boat tour (my friend booked a similar tour that started at 11 and had 30 people crammed onto her boat).

    Every island we went to felt like we had a private viewing, even James Bond which other reviews I’ve read say it can get very crowded the later in the day that you go. Our main tour guide Alex was fantastic. He was very helpful, informative and gave us a personalized experience. The photographer on the tour was also great, he took the time to take high-quality photos for each person, getting all angles and cool filters not only on his camera but also on each of our phones. I was extremely impressed. The islands and limestone stacks/cliffs themselves are stunning. This tour might be pricier than booking at one of the local booths in Phuket, but it is 100% worth the price. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this tour!!!

    Phang Nga Bay: Early Bird James Bond & Beyond Tour reviewed by Alexandra

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐Not wow & excellent but overall was good
    Trip stated viewpoint of phi phi but due to possibility of rain the guide chose not to go up to viewpoint.

    Should have stated the possibility of changes due to weather. If that’s the case we would have booked with any other tours. Was the viewpoint that makes us want to book this tour. Anyway, the crew made the trip more enjoyable.

    Phi Phi Islands: Early Bird Tour From Phuket and Khao Lak reviewed by Sandra

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Wish I’d known about the 20 baht landing fee at Phi Phi
    Efficient service from Phuket to Phi Phi. I had changed my pick up location & had received a confirmation that the pick-up location was changed but they went to the original hotel.

    I phoned the number on the voucher 1 minute after the latest pick up time & they sent a minibus straight away; however the bus was very full, the air conditioning wasn’t great & the bus journey took what felt like ages because of the heat & the traffic. Also, I had used up all my small denomination baht in Phuket & was unaware of the 20 baht landing fee in Phi Phi, so it would have been useful to know about this in advance.

    Ferry Transfer Between Phuket and Koh Phi Phi reviewed by Lorraine

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐Brilliant hospitality, lunch and refreshments.
    Booked online and didn’t realise we were given VIP seating with air conditioning which was great as it meant we didn’t have to smell the fumes from the boat,

    snorkeling equipment was provided and the guide was friendly and well understood, make sure you bring your own towels. The lunch provided could’ve been a bit more generous as this was shared between quite a few. Overall, a lovely experience.
