          Excellent Day Trip
          This trip exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival we had to pay 300 baht for the National Park entrance. The boat trip was smooth and full of beautiful views. The guide and staff were extremely helpful and a pleasure to be around. The chef on board made our lunch and it was delicious. Ample amount of snacks and beverages, so don’t bring any. Bring water shoes for canoeing. If you’re worried about the canoeing, they have a guide that does all the work. You just have to transfer to the canoe, which isn’t hard. There is a toilet on the boat as well.

          A great evening of entertainment!!
          If you love entertaining, high production theatre shows ...then you will love this one!! From the graphics, to the costumes, to the music, to the dancing ... this show is spectacular. They condense a great deal of variety within the time frame ..so that there is something for everyone. Myself and my twin were entertained from beginning to end ...sat in what is a classy theatre drinking complimentary drinks ...and enjoying a great night out on the town. There is the opportunity to take pictures with the cast at the end if you want some glamorous content for Instagram. Smile.

          Peaceful and quiet places in the city. Although in Bangkok seems to be in Japan forest. It is so clean and easy to indicate which area I should go. Restaurant also in there so that you can have the meal or desert if you like.

          We had a great day exploring the wonderful work this centre does to rehabilitate animals and from pick up to drop off, the whole family love it! It was definitely worth the $$s. Natalie the guide was very knowledgeable and helpful as was Will. Highlight was feeding the elephants. 10/10 for a fab filled day! Fully recommend.

          Educational & Heartwarming
          Our visit to The Elephant Sanctuary in Phuket was nothing short of extraordinary. The facilities for the elephants were excellent, providing them with ample space to roam and thrive. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, offering invaluable insights into the elephants' care and individual personalities, making the experience both educational and heartwarming. We chose this tour because of its cruelty-free ethos, and we were delighted to see the elephants being treated as beloved family members. Amidst the hustle and bustle of our trip, this sanctuary provided the most relaxing experience, allowing us to connect with nature in a meaningful way. Undoubtedly, it became the highlight of our journey, leaving us with cherished memories that will last a lifetime. (February 26, am)

          This was an excellent trip. I booked directly with the company via email. We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to the pier. The entire trip is well organised and professional. The leader, Sun and the team ensured that everyone was safe and well taken care of. The scenery is spectacular. The food was delicious- lunch, snacks and dinner are served on board along with soft drinks. Overall, an fabulous day out. Highly recommended.

          Beautiful place...facts mot fiction
          We preferred a small group tour, so we went to The Lake Phuket Elephant Home. Two hours outside of Phuketbut well worth the trip. Mayya and her brother Yu were extremely knowledgeable. Elephants each came with their own "caregiver". The interactions between us and the elephants were very relaxed and lunch was pretty darn good too.

        Not a good start after 10mins of waiting past pick up time had to call your operator and eventually they told me the driver would be an hour late!! Not ideal but was advised would still have the 8hours. Just ordered a drink at hotel lobby and then got a message to say driver arrived earlier than expected so was only 30mins late instead of 1hr which was good. Driver did not introduce himself or apologise for delay. Aware hired driver not a tour guide but had ZERO chat or conversation with us the whole day then at the end of the day got told we had to be back for a certain time which was less than the 8 hours we had paid for due to them being late !! Not happy with this and would have been nice to know his name. Would definitely recommend hiring private driver though over tour as was handy for where and when we wanted to go so would still recommend just don’t expect anything from driver and expect lateness !! Car was big and clean though but no water etc provided.

        I'm sorry to hear that your experience with the private driver didn't start off well due to the delay and lack of communication from the driver. It's important for drivers to communicate clearly with their clients and provide a level of professionalism and hospitality, even if they are not tour guides. It's also disappointing to hear that you didn't receive the full 8 hours you had paid for. I hope that despite these issues, you were still able to enjoy your day and visit the sights you wanted to see. Thank you for sharing your feedback and recommendations for others who may be considering hiring a private driver in the future.

        We hired the driver for 8 hours to visit viewpoints, Buddha, Old Town and other nearby attractions (shopping mall included). Dol, our driver was amazing. The car - Van was spotless. There was a cold water for us and snacks, phone chargers and wifi offered. Dol spoke basic english but understood what we would like to see and looked after us well. He drove very safe. He always offered to take photos for us and waited at the meeting point with cold bottled water. We managed to always get to the places of interest before the crowds, so well done Dol. This was definitely value for money.
        This is a hired driver so be prepared where would you like to go and make sure you research places.

        As we were booking this “tour” we were expecting a tour of phuket we haven’t experienced before. Upon commencement of the “tour” we learned that this is basically a 4 hour driver on hire to drive wherever we wanted to. The driver was on his phone the whole trip, hardly spoke any english and not once felt we were on a tour of phuket. He refused to drive to locations we requested due to the rain and suggested we go shopping. We did not pay premium prices to be dropped off at a shopping centre to walk around by ourselves. Very disappointed.

        (+) helpful driver and great locations
        (-) impossible to do all the described program in the tour so you’ll pay for extra hours. Or from the beginning, take the 8 hours tour.

        Thank you for your review and recommendation of the tour. It's good to hear that you had a nice experience and found the driver to be helpful. It's also useful to note that the tour may require extra hours to fully experience all the locations listed, so taking the 8-hour tour may be a better option for some.

        The vehicle was great, the driver was nice, however, we were expecting a customized tour. We asked for a driver to take is on a tour with a focus on history and historical landmarks. Our first stop was a tourist trap Pearl factory where they just wanted to sell us stuff, which took up the first 2 hours of our “tour” with traffic to get there. Then he picked a completely inefficient route where we spent most of the time in traffic as he started take us past Old Phuket, where we really wanted to go, to see 2 other attractions then backtrack in the bad traffic to get there.

        The vehicle was beautiful. If you know where you want to go and plan your own itinerary, this is great, otherwise, if you’re looking for a customized designed tour by a local, this might not be the right option for you.

        Our driver was Ras, a young guy who provided good suggestions and insight while complying with our requirements and intentions. Thus ended up being a very customised tour, stopping in places we wanted and others he suggested. Always very helpful and polite, Ras was an excellent driver.

        Our driver was very nice; he took us wherever we wanted, and the car was a comforrable jeep. We booked for 6 hours and we saw the Wat Chalong, the Big Budha, the Central Phuket Florestra Mall (it is amazing!), and Kathu waterfall (not worth it unfortunatelly). We were back to our hotel 15 minutes before our time ends and the time we spent in each location was around an hour, except the waterfall. Highly recommened customised tour but dont expect the driver to tell you about the places; we didnt mind since we could read about each place online, befor the tour.

        Amazing service! We had a driver named Beer. +66 63 962 9822. Call him! he took us around Phuket for 8 hrs. Started by going down to Patong Beach, we walked the beach and toured around while he waited. Next he took us to Tiger Kingdom, and this is a must. It was an extra cost but not every day you get to see these big cats up close and personal. Next we went to a money show that was cool, then off to a couple temples. We never made it to the Big Budda as traffic was really busy the day we went, but seen it from a distance. Last we went to the large jewelry store. (We didn't ask to go here, he brought us here) it was great, but 99% was out of our price range.

        We requested ‘Dol’ as our driver as we read an excellent review online about him and he did not disappoint. He knows this area like the back of his hand and can literally take you anywhere you want to go. We wanted to do some photography so he took us to all the excellent view points and then off to Phuket Old Town for more photography and an authentic Thai food experience. It was a really awesome day and Dol kept us entertained, hydrated and fed with snacks all along the way. We would highly recommend Dol and this company. You won’t be disappointed.

It's fantastic to hear about your positive experience, and recommending Dol and the company is a great way to share your satisfaction with others!

        We always use Dol, our favourite driver with My Phuket Holidays! He is pleasant - always smiling … easy going and very helpful. He is also very caring - always making sure my 90 year old mum is comfortable …
        He makes sure there are small stool to make it easier for her to get onto his van.

        This is the 3rd time we have engaged him to bring us around. He has by now become our friend too and someone we can depend on should there be a sudden need or emergency.
        Thank you My Phuket Tours for such a reliable driver!
