The best value tour in Phuket

Very well organised, texted us a pick up time and was here promptly. Tour was brilliant, saw all the landmarks in Phuket and had plenty of time to explore these on our own after the guide had told us all about them. Cold water and a refreshing towel was provided to cool down which was brilliant too.
Jasmine our guide was exceptional, very friendly and told us all we needed to know about the different parts of Phuket and was willing to answer any questions too. Thank you Jasmine, we had a great day and would highly recommend this tour- absolutely faultless
Monkey mayhem

As transport between locations this was fine and less expensive than the trip available to book in our hotel.

The Big Buddha is impressive - not exactly peaceful as still under construction. We stopped at a viewpoint over the city .. there was a very bad singer and violent macaques (don’t take food or you will be mugged 100%) - still it was quite funny. The Wat Chalong temple was really beautiful and well managed - although later in the week we went to a smaller local temple and it was more tranquil and we were the only ones there) which was a bit more special. Phuket old town was beautiful - we went back another day as we wanted more time.

The guide really just got everyone on and off the minibus and told us when to be back - did not go round with us or give any information. In fact we learned more from our driver who became chatty and informative once the guide had got off at our last stop.
Great Views, Little Context

This tour was pretty cool. Great value for what you are paying. The guide and driver took us to many destinations; however, they didn’t really explain what I was seeing. I was just expected to appreciate the views and attractions.
