    Best tour guide ever!!! Anyone who gets to have Jelly as a tour guide will be very lucky. She’s very fun, attentive and very caring. I really wish I can meet her again in my next contiki.

    Shannon made my 10th contiki one to remember. She was great fun to travel with yet organised and professional the whole time and made the tour nothing but enjoyable. I hope to somehow be lucky enough to get Shannon as a TM again one day

    Great tour to relax on. Itinerary isn’t overly full. Can choose to spend time with your group or do your own thing. Lots of opportunity to party, experience the amazing marine parks and shop.

    Greg was my tour manager on my trip to Thailand and he was absolutely amazing! He was friendly, accomodating, knowledgeable, organized and experienced. My trip was incredible and Greg was the reason why. I could not have asked for a better tour guide.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      On the final day of the tour you will be travelling from Koh Pha Ngan to Koh Samui, where the group will go their separate ways. Please be aware that our return time is dependant upon external factors, therefore we advise booking an extra nights accommodation before your departure.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The adventure begins in Koh Samui, when you check into your accommodation and get ready to check out the nightlife. The location of the joining point will be in your final trip documents, which are sent 21 days prior to departure. If you're arriving after the meeting time then remember to let the team know, and make sure that you have the details for Day 2.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Airport transfers are not included in the tour cost and Contiki are unable to arrange transfers, so you will need to make your own way to the tour starting point. Contiki make sure that their meeting points are in well connected areas, so catching public transport shouldn't be a problem!
