A great day
John_U, Mar 2023
What a fab day. Boat crew all good, it’s a 9 hour trip, plenty of stops to swim, snorkel, lunch and walk around the islands 10/10
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Greetings from V. Marine Tour, thank you for writing us a 10/10 review! We are happy you were satisfied with your full day tour enjoying swimming, snorkeling and sightseeing the beautiful islands. Have a great day!
This is the one you want
Leanne_D, Mar 2023
Don't let the naysayers that say there are "so many people" dissuade you. This particular company tops out at 20 people and you are literally only riding a boat with them. The island hops have people at them, but if you want a whole island to yourself, you'll have a hard time finding it. Each island hop was just the right amount of time to enjoy, and the snorkeling stops were great also. I went with a friend who typically gets seasick, but the speed boat experience didn't affect her at all. This trip is a bargain for an all day excursion.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Greetings from V. Marine Tour, Thank you for writing us a 5 star review. We love that you and your friend had the best time visiting Phi Phi Islands. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon.
Would have been great with better weather
Reto_V, Mar 2023
The trip itself is good with the visit of different places. Unfortunately, the sea was very rough, strong wind. After the first section - about 1h15 - most passenger were soaking wet and some already seasick. And at the end, Maya Bay had the red flag up - no landing aloud. Not the travel agents fault.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Greetings from V. Marine Tour, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are happy that overall you enjoyed your visit to Phi Phi islands even though there were rough sea conditions that affected the speedboat ride to Phi Phi Islands and our ability to take you all to Maya Bay. We appreciate your understanding that it was out of our company's control. We did the best we could to provide a great tour program for Phi Phi Islands and make sure that all guests went to Phi Phi Islands and return back to Phuket safely. We hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation time in Thailand.
Must do trip
Samantha_S, Mar 2023
Amazing day from start to finish. Hotel pick up was on time …the speed boat ride to the islands was rough, but that’s not the crews fault. if you get sea sick or scared of some bumps you should consider a big boat instead of speed boat. the day was very well organized, enough time at each location, lots of snacks and drinks provided throughout the day. Sunny and his crew were the best. They were attentive and went above and beyond to make the day awesome. I traveled solo, they offered to take my pics etc … Very wonderful experience.

Family of Four Experience!
Hannah_C, Feb 2023
This was a fantastic tour of all of the islands. We worked with Goodies and his crew of 4. They were amazing! We came with a 4-year old and a 1-year old and they were so accommodating (above and beyond)! Leo was also our cameraman (we got the camera package), and he did a great job of capturing all of the great moments of the day (with2 littles, it’s hard to capture them all). At the end of the tour, our transport fell through and Goodies assisted us with getting a private taxi back to our hotel (on the other side of the island)! Talk about an amazing team with over the top customer service! This was truly a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend it to everyone. Completely family friendly and a great way to see the outer islands of Phuket.

Amazing tour!!! 👏 10/10
Syntesa_T, Jan 2023
Amazing tour! 10/10 would do again. I watched the weather for a week prior and there was a chance of rain. Actual weather was completely overcast and a couple minutes of rain. At 5pm the day prior we were given a pick up window of 735-740am. The driver pulled in at 736! Very prompt. Only 4 other people in our transit. Arrived and our tour guide gave us each a waterproof case and bracelets to identify ourselves to the camera man. Our tour guide, 'Goodies' gave us a run down of the day. We had 19 people total in our tour with plenty of room left on the boat. The water was very choppy there and back. The captain did an amazing job of navigating rougher waters (coming from my husband who has experience boating). There were 2 life guards who helped us on and off the boat every transition. We felt well taken care of and VERY SAFE. There was excellent communication throughout the trip. There were a couple of kids on the tour who seemed to handle the waves well. It took 1h20m to get to the first stop. The snorkeling was great! Lots of colorful fish to see and some colorful coral. We spent 40 minutes there which was honestly PLENTY. It was very tiring. We then went to the next stop which was just a photo opportunity on Monkey beach. Goodie had a lot of monkey stories. We were asked to pose a bit closer than i would prefer to the monkeys. I watched a mo key try to steal a ladies bag because she just left it sitting in the sand. Next was lunch stop at Holiday Inn resort. Lunch was great. There was a vegetarian option which was pretty good. We had an opportunity to use the pool here also. The next stop was another snorkeling opportunity which was from the shore. It was hard for me to snorkel because of the waves. But my husband was able to get further out and got some good go pro footage. Next was a swimming opportunity I don't remember the name of the area. We were unable to get into Maya bay because of the red flag. (I didn't mind because by this point I was exhausted.) The trip was amazing! Honestly so so great! We can't stop talking about it. We haven't gotten our pictures back yet but I'm sure they will be great. The photographer kept having us pose and took videos of us all day. Do this tour if you don't like crowds.

Simply WOW! What a great experience and crew. We had a fantastic day with our guide Goodie and our personal photographer. The transfers were smooth and everything was perfectly organized. I highly recommend booking the photographer, as he was a great guy, making the trip even better, and we got a lot of wonderful pictures. 10/10 would recommend to everyone I know!

Trip was great, avoid their transportation if possible.
Collin F, Jan 2020
Everything about this tour was fantastic except the ride there was an hour-and-a-half. The ride home would have been the same so we hired a taxi instead and were back to our villa in 25 min.
Alexander_Z, Mar 2023
Die Tour war super organisiert, ganz tolle Eindrücke, Boot im guten Zustand, sehr coole Crew. Kann ich nur empfehlen.

Das Schnorcheln war Traumhaft, das Essen auch sehr lecker . Die Hruppe und auch der Gids waren toll. Es war wirklich der Mühe wert.

Marie_L, Feb 2023
L excursion était géniale. Petit groupe , on avait de la place sur le bateau. Goodies (notre guide ) était super sympa et drôle. On avait le temps de profiter de chaque île. J enlève une étoile car le bateau secoue vraiment beaucoup. Même sans problèmes de dos , nous sommes ressortis en ayant mal partout. Un couple est venu avec son bébé (agé d environ 2 mois ), attention le transport n' est pas du tout adapté pour les jeunes enfants
Response from Host, Feb 2023

Super Ausflug
Ralf_B, Mar 2022
Alles super organisiert von der Abholung über die Tour bis zur Rückfahrt zum Hotel. Die gesamte Crew hat sich um jeden gekümmert wenn Fragen waren wir haben die kleine Gruppe gebucht 16 war super entspannt. Einzig die Getränke Auswahl an Bord könnte etwas mehr sein ( Cola Zero und Wasser ohne Sprudel ) ist nicht jedermanns Geschmack aber es gibt frisches Obst. Unser Guide „ Goodies“ war super unterhaltsam danke mal für den schönen Tag.
