The hike was awesome, the area absolutely stuningly beautiful. The tour guide is great and I will recommend her for any tourist. Loved the cultural and natural explanations and history. The Big Buddha was beautiful and, as a lover of all things religion, I enjoyed every moment we spent there

The Budda trecking
Victoria_U, May 2023
Very organised and an amazing tour guide. It was quite tricky and is required good physical conditions to complete the tour. My son managed to complete and rated it the best ever experience in his life!
Good day out
Joe_M, Apr 2023
The guide was really knowledgeable about the plant life and other elements of local life. They were very supportive for those on the tour who were less used to trekking in the heat. Good lunch provided as well
Good all round day

Jungle walk with kong was the best. Also the dinner was excellent well worth booking 👌 you won't be disappointed
Amazing Buddha Trek
Our guide Kong was amazing! Started at CC’s Hideaway where we pre ordered our lunch while we waited for all tour members. In the end they didn’t arrive so it was just the 2 of us (plus Kong) on the adventure. We did the longer hike around and up the mountain learning about Thailand along the way. Once we arrived at the Big Buddha we enjoyed fresh fruit and a coconut to drink then continued up to the sight itself. As it is a morning activity the crowds were still quite small so gave us better opportunities for pictures etc. Following this it was a quick ride to Chalong Temple where we wandered around the gardens and in and out of the various buildings on site. Kong was super friendly, let us lead the way on time in each area. The tours ends with lunch and it didn’t disappoint! YUM. If you like to be active and see the sights without sitting in a van all day, this is definitely the tour for you!
Amazing experience!!
Dana_K, Jan 2023
The excursion was simply amazing. It's a good mixture between sportive activity, food and culture. The lunch was very delicious. The whole experience was accompanied by our guide Kong, which was very informative, helpful and entertaining. Thank you, I highly recommend this tour!
Well worth booking!
Katy_L, Jan 2023
Kong our guide was knowledgeable, informative and great company! The whole trip was well planned and we were so glad we booked! The trekking part was nice and quiet and not touristy. The food at the both cafe's was excellent. Highly recommend.
Worth it !

An amazing trekk! Even with the rainy weather this was worth it for the experience and the views . We had an amazing lunch and Kong was the best guide I’ve had while in Thailand. A ten out of ten .
A healthy adventure to Big Buddha
Krishna_S, Nov 2022
We had awesome trip to Big bhuddha with Bond and team. Extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional crew. Don’t want to miss mentioning delicious and healthy organic vegetarian food. One of a kind experience and don’t miss it.
Fun exercise!
Kyle_H, Oct 2022
Great work out! Please note that you don’t need to be in great shape. Just expect to sweat a ton! You start walking up to the Buddha from a resort nearby. The tour guide was great! When we go to the Buddha we had an amazing view of Phuket.
A nice way to spend a day in Phuket
Franciscus_T, May 2022
The delicious lunch at the organic cafe. The trek was easy but well worth it when you get to the top.
Great day

This was a great experience🙏🏽 Miu, our guide was an excellent and authentic guide who made us feel safe and informed in the jungle trekking. She had answers for all of our questions and the whole tour had a very good vibe. I am so grateful for finding this!
Trip to Big Buddha
Arina_S, Dec 2021
This trip was absolutely amazing! We took the 2km hike up to Big Buddha. It is quite steep, but very interesting, as you walk through the jungle :) The fruits on top of the hill are better than you can find at the hotels, because they are very fresh, so it’s a great reward for the hike. The tour was perfectly organized, the guides are fun and friendly. They took picture so we have a lot of memories while actually enjoying sightseeing. They really make sure you get an immersive experience! Overall, 10/10, we loved it a lot!

Ice and Nim were very kind and professional guides.

It was a great and delightful tour with a clever dog called MIa. Everything was well arranged including lunch and sightseeing. I definitely recommend this tour those who want to take a look around Big Budda and the temple. I would like to take 4 ways water tour someday with the guides. Thank you for Ice and Nim.

Jacquelynn C, Mar 2018
Great trek, but its a lot harder than I expected, we did the 2km straight up trek, im a moderately fit 50 year old and found it hard work at times but saying that we had a 73 year old guy who got up but just took a bit longer. Once you are at the top of the trek its pretty easy from then on, theres also a pit stop at the top at a local cafe which was welcome. Lunch was back at the hotel where we started and was amazing I hadnt expected it to be so good. You are given water but id recommend taking extra with you.

This was an amazing trip, made all the better with a brilliant guide Nuya and her dog.From the moment we were picked up from our hotel and did the rounds picking up the other travellers, to arriving at the departure point where we first me Nuya, we felt comfortable and confident that we were going to have a good day. Although for January it was a very hot day with the humidity also quite high we were still looking forward to the trek. We were provided with additional water and briefed on the level of difficulty with an explanation that anyone who felt a bit wary of the climb could be driven by road to the next rendezvous point. The group consisted of myself and my wife from the UK, an Israeli lady, a South African couple, a Canadian, and 4 Americans two of whom opted for the transport. We were put through a little session to limber up ankles and knees etc, and set off up a very steep bit of road in about 32 degrees before turning onto what can best be described as a very steep path. It might only be about 2k but it felt like 10 in the heat with the little dog leading the way to sniff out snakes in the undergrowth. With some puffing and panting mainly because myself and Maria decided on a blistering pace up the hill leaving everyone else to catch up we arrived at the rest station fro refreshment and plenty of coconut milk and fruit, before completing the steep climb up the road to the Big Buddha. We had plenty of time to look around and see the monkeys and both Buddha's before driving off to the restaurant for a very nice meal with plenty of choice. Then driven back to our respective hotels. An amazing trip and well worth the effort. Would highly recommend this trek.

Emma W, Sept 2017
This was such a fun trek up the mountain to see the big Buddha! Our guide was incredibly friendly and kept everyone's spirits up throughout the long and hot hike. We had frequent stops, beautiful scenes along the way, and overall it was a fantastic day. Highly recommend - but do keep in mind that it is a hike! Wear light and comfortable clothes and good athletic shoes. Only issues: The little cafe we stopped at for a drink had clearly mistreated animals chained up outside. I realize it's a different culture, but it made a lot of us in the group feel very uncomfortable. For our lunch we were really disappointed that it was western food. We're in Thailand...expected to be shown some good Thai food.
