    Just finished the 23day tour from Bangkok to Phuket and it was amazing, every day was so much fun. May was a brilliant tour guide she was always smiling, always laughing and always making jokes. She had great knowledge on the temples we visited in Bangkok and on each location we stopped at along the way. One guy had a small injury that needed a few stitches (nothing major) and May went to the hospital with and stayed with until he left. I think it's good to know that you have good tour guides that know what to do and who care for your wellbeing even when something unforseen crops up :)

    This tour was amazing!, The tour was super fun and super chilled! It was a big difference from the Northern tour, we just did. this was relaxing! Patrick, and PomPom our guides were super informative. They provided details at every destination about the place. My favourite part of the trip was definitely the floating Bungalow. they were gorgeous and super fun. Pity it was raining, but the location was amazing!. Also worthy to mention was the boat trip around Koh Phangan was sickk!

    The tour was amazing! after doing a 14 northern day tour, this tour was perfect. it was very relaxing. A good change of pace compared to the north. I really loved the boat trip around Koh phangan. It was a good day. we got to relax and chill on the boat deck, absorbed some sun, after a few rainy days. Swimming and kayaking in the ocean was amazing!!. Our tour Guides were also amazing PomPom and Patrick!

    The tour was excellent! this tour was very accommodating to all of us. I loved the Sky tower that we went too, it was an amazing view of Bangkok, and the fact that the guides arranged for us to go to the Half moon party was also great, because it wasn't part of the itinerary. The floating bungalows in Khao Sok national park was lovely, it was such a relaxing day. I really enjoyed the group, there was alot of laughs and the parties we had together were brilliant memories.

    This tour was an amazing experience! The boat party in Koh Phangan was the best experience ever and the views at Khao Sok and the Bottle Beach hike were breathtaking! One of my favorite memories was celebrating my birthday! I loved how it was the first night and everyone celebrated and Alanna & Oneway got me a cake! Alanna and Oneway were so accommodating and helped me through whatever I needed. I will never forget them. They were the friendliest and sweetest people ever!

    Overall, this tour was an amazing experience! Just did not enjoy having to go back to Bangkok between the Northern tour and Southern. Alanna and Oneway did an incredible job throughout the whole tour. Could tell they genuinely cared about all of us. Favorite memories were Khao Sok, Bottle Beach, and the guides!!!

    The beaches in Southern Thailand and the islands were absolutely breathtaking. I loved staying off the grid at Khao Sok for the night, it was an amazing experience. The beaches are beatiful here. My favorite was staying at Bottle Beach. I will remember playing with fire on this amazing beach with a group of friends for the rest of my life! Would love to spend more time on Bottle Beach!
