Amazing value - my husband & I agree we can't recommend this tour highly enough! Daisy was very knowledgeable, answering our questions & guiding us through every stop (instructions were clear). John was a very safe & conpetent driver. This is a must for 1st time phuket visitors. My only suggestion would be to allow more time in Phuket Old Town - otherwise immensely enjoyable!


23 May, 2024

This was a good day trip do that is great value. You get to see the big Buddha, Karon view point, some temples, and old Phuket. The temples were lovely, but a boring as nothing is really happening there. The tour guide was great and really funny, and always there to offer taking photos.

The visits were well picked, we went to some of the best spots near Phuket in an afternoon, it was very good. The team was very friendly and helped when needed, definitely recommend!

My daughter and I took the afternoon tour. Pickup by our guide Daisy and Mr. Johnny was timely. We were offered water throughout the experience as it was extremely warm. The tour was just the right amount of time. Daisy gave us some back story of each stop, and that was helpful. Thank you Daisy and Mr. Johnny!

Daisy our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable of the areas we visited. The Big Buddha was amazing to see up close. I wished I had done the tour earlier in our trip as I would have went back to spend more time in Old Phuket Town.
