Having a spare day to kill in Phuket, my partner and I decided to try the well reviewed John Grays Canoe tour. A little more expensive than most yours, but by far and away worth the money. The caves are incredible, the staff on board...More

It was a great day and a great trip. The guides were awesome and they even let us paddle a bit. The staff was very informative and I really liked the environmental consciousness of the staff and the trip. I would definitely do it again.

We enjoyed the day. The boat was comfortable, the food very good, and of course the activities fun. We are kayakers and canoeists ourselves, but soon understood why we couldn't paddle this time - some of the caves were pretty tight. On our free time...More
