Excellent experience!
Daniel_D, Mar 2023
We had 3 groups of 8, so booked 3 separate tours and it did not disappoint! My group had Woody as our guide and he and our driver went above and beyond for us. The vehicle was cool, clean and comfortable, and pick-up was on time. Wat Chalong was beautiful, the Big Buddha site, Old Town and cashew factory very interesting and the beaches and overlooks stunning. Woody did a great job explaining the sites and seeing to everyone's comfort. Great job, Woody and I-Asia. Wonderful, recommended tour.

Madeeha_S, Mar 2022
Great vehicle and caring driver/tour guide. Very good if you don’t want to drive around Thailand or not sure where to go. Going to see big Buddha and the temple was great! Would question some of the stops such as the cashew nut factory was mostly a shopping stop and the gem factory was full of pushy sales staff.

Mary_H, Mar 2022
Great experience with Tipp and Mr. A. Since it was only the two.of us, we had individualized attention. Tipp gave us the history behind the Chinese influence on Phuket. We has lunch, and was able to add an extra tour to see the tigers.
