Noelle T, Apr 2018
Considering the price, I shouldn't be complaining much, but the tour was not as described in totality. We visited Karon View Point, Karen lookout, Wat Chalong, and made stopovers at a small Cashew Nut factory tourist snack shopping stop and a China-owned Jewelry shop your typical tourist trap where price tags have far too many zeros. I think? we drove past the other beaches that were mentioned in the description, and drove past Phuket Town. In summary, only Karon View Point and Wat Chalong was worth the visit.

Maryam L, Mar 2018
This tour is a good way to get an overview of the island with some history without having to be committed to an all day tour, especially for the price. A few suggestions to improve the tour include having a microphone and speaker in the van so folks in the back can hear what's being shared by the guide more easily and to visit or at least drive to see the Chalong Big Buddha in the mountains instead of just pointing it out. Otherwise, we learned and saw quite a bit of the island and would recommend it to others.

Alma D, Aug 2017
Our tour guide was great. We stopped at more places that was said. The cashew nut factory was a delight. We bought nuts after sampling a lot. Another place that was not on the list was the Jewellery store. Biggest in Phuket. a must seen for a traveller. The tour was good and gave a lot of info icw Gems. Stayed longer than expected bought more than planned. Highly recommed this tour.

Alex E, Aug 2017
This trip is great value for money! DJ our tour guide (14/08/17) was brilliant he was a very funny guy and never stopped talking but he made it a great day! My only tiny criticism is that we didn't actually stop in Phuket town and was impossible to take any good photos out of a mini bus window.

Lynne, Aug 2017
I chose this of many half day tours because it did not mention going to any factories or sales outlets but it did a tour of old Phuket, Wat Chalong Temple and also looked at Rawai beach which I particularly wanted to see. In fact we went nowhere near Rawai, passed through the others, did go to Karon viewpoint and I was very happy when we stopped at Wat Chalong. We shot down 1 street in Phuket and the guide pointed out 2 old Colonial buildings. I actually asked another passenger when we were touring Old Phuket and he told me we had just done it. The serious business of the day was a very uninteresting stop at a cashew factory where someone pointed out some plastic fruits hanging from a tree. We were followed around, as we looked at all the samples, by people with baskets. The other serious business of the day was a gem factory where were were not given an opportunity to see the crystals and gems in their raw state but were rudely pushed into salesrooms and encouraged to buy jewellery. We had enjoyed chatting to some people from another country and intended to arrange to meet up but our guide sent us outside to wait with others going to hotels in our areas and we never saw them or him again. We actually completed the tour feeling very angry that we had been so misinformed. The visit to Wat Chalong was the only interesting part for us. A waste of many precious hours.
