    This is a truly fabulous day out on the water, with a really exceptional crew who guide you through the entire day in a fun, & educational way. If you want to swim in the middle of the ocean, this is the cruise for you. You also have the opportunity to kayak, snorkel, relax, or just do nothing but enjoy the spectacular surroundings & never leave the boat at all.
    The food was so delicious & the amount of water & drinks available (non-alcoholic) were endless. There were even a few surprises, but I won’t ruin them for you. The park itself is absolutely worth the trip! Ok so now for things you better know in advance: bring a LOT of sunscreen & a good hat! If you struggle physically walking or getting on/off boats, this is not the trip for you. If you choose to kayak or snorkel with a go-pro or any camera (which the crew does *NOT* recommend!), you better make sure that thing is connected to SOMETHING THAT FLOATS. A fellow traveler tipped their kayak (life vests are required) & lost their go-pro. GONE.
    All that said …This is a day you won’t forget! Oh, & they take photos all day & share them with you!!!

    A standout experience of our Thailand holiday. We were picked up from our hotel and driven the short distance to the micro farm. We were warmly welcomed by Chef Lat and her team. The day began with a guided tour of the beautiful farm, herbs were collected as well as fresh eggs and other ingredients. The aquaponics system was displayed and explained and we were offered a freshly prepared herbal/health drink. The culinary part of the day was just a joy. Chef Lat was informative and humorous,,superbly aided by her team who assisted in a unobtrusive and efficient manner. The whole day was extremely well planned and organised. The dishes we cooked were amazing, the menu changes depending on which day you book. the organic ingredients were so fresh and flavoursome. The food was the best of any we ate during our Thai experience. There is a small shop selling produce, pastes, spices all prepared by Chef Lat herself but this is not upsold and no obligation or pressure to purchase. at the end of the day we were collected and returned to our hotel, arriving with full stomachs and even fuller hearts. Thank you Chef Lat and team, we are looking forward to trying out our new found culinary knowledge making the recipes from your ebook!

    We had a great time and learned so much. The market visit was educational and fun; set-up was very comfortable and efficient; the instruction clear; and the food we made delicious. But, best of all, everyone who helped us was a delight.

    Five friends joined the course in the late afternoon. After a very short taxi ride from fisherman's village we were greeted by Tom and shown into his and Lin's beautiful hillside villa.

    We were joined by a young American couple. I think there are a maximum of eight places.

    Tom walked us around the garden. Showing us vegetables and herbs which we would use later. We collected chillies, lemongrass, turmeric and other ingredients.

    Tom handed us over to Lin, who as well as being an expert cook was clear and patient in her instruction. We made three dishes: a Penang duck curry, Tom Yum Goong soup and sweet and sour chicken.

    Lin's organisation was superb, with us doing all of the preparation in advance and cooking all three dishes at the last.

    Lin had marinated and smoked the duck over charcoal and coconut and she deep fried the chicken in a large batch. Saving us from the risk of using a wok full of oil. Nonetheless she explained and showed us each step so we could repeat at home.

    My wife's Penang Curry was the best I have tasted. Mine came a poor second. It was great to taste both and understand what improvements I could make.

    The sweet and sour was a revelation. Nothing like the sickly sweet versions I've been served in the UK. I would have said I don't like Sweet and Sour until Lin taught me how to cook one.

    Water was included, and we were able to purchase a very acceptable wine at reasonable prices. Tom serving us whilst cooking.

    Both joined us to eat and we enjoyed Toms lively conversation and Lin's quieter, intelligent contributions.

    My only regret is that Lin was preparing a Beef Rendang for their dinner the following day. This looked and smelled incredible. Unfortunately it wasn't ready for us to taste.

    Lin also sells Lasagne at the regular night markets in fisherman's village.

    We've just received the recipes and will be trying them at home. I just need to find a good source of ingredients.

    All in all a fantastic evening and very good value.

    Great experience from start to finish, started with a very interesting local tour with a good amount of knowledgeable information on local produce. Then to the farm, a very relaxed pace of cooking , starting with information , chopping of the food to be cooked and cooking of a good variety of dishes. Then to eat the food, which was more than enough, and any surplus was packed for later. The hosts talked to us throughout and showed us around the farm garden to see the growing of some of the ingredients.
    A very enjoyable afternoon

    Unfortunately, the planned tour date was cancelled and rescheduled for a later day. Which did impact other tours.
    The tour was well catered for, and the tour host was approachable and informative. The food weas tasty and the boat is roomy enough for everyone to spread out.

    The tour itself involves a 3-hour cruise to the National Park. There are two climbs on this tour a 500m climb and a 150m climb (different locations). The first climb is tough, the steps are uneven and the pull up ropes are secured to the post by nails and are exposed, so watch them. The second climb to Emeral Lake is only 150m and the steps, whilst steep, are even. The bad weather rolled in heading back to Koh Samui, which made the journey home 4-hours long and didn’t allow us to swim.

    All in all a great tour well worth the effort.

    The Thai cooking class was an amazing experience. It began with the tour operator checking with us about what we would like to learn how to make and also what meat we were comfortable with. The pick up from the hotel was seamless and the teacher was extremely punctual. She began by taking us on a local market tour. We learnt about various veggies and herbs that we commonly used in Thai cooking. It was so much fun to get a glimpse into the true behind the scenes of life of a Thai family.
    The class was held in her home and that just made the experience all the more intimate and special. She introduced us to her garden and all the fruits, vegetables and herbs that she grows. Her goal was to ensure that we learn the method and also grasp the sequence of steps required to make authentic Thai food.
    I HIGHLY recommend this class... you have really enjoy the experience.

    Fantastic cooking class, I am a chef with over 40 years experience and the step by step instructions were simple to follow. Jul's knowledge with flavors is incredible. Definitely will come back for more classes next time I'm in Koh Samui.

    TL;DR

    My husband, our wedding guests and I had an amazing time cruising around Koh Samui on the Red Baron as part of our pre-wedding festivities! It was a highlight of our stay. Could not recommend enough.

    Full review:

    My husband and I chartered the Red Baron for a 3h sunset and dinner cruise as a big thank you gift to all our wedding guests - and we had an amazing time! It was very well suited to the diversity of our group - ranging from 20 to 80 years old!

    Sveta was very flexible with our changing number of guests (getting answers from everyone was like herding cats!). She organised the pick up from and drop off to our hotel for everyone (38 people total) so it was all a breeze.

    We boarded, had delicious welcome cocktails, and enjoyed discovering the different areas on the boat. We could easily have been more people without it feeling crowded. We got some delicious welcome snack as we sailed around Koh Samui. We made a stop for everyone to swim and it was a great bonding moment for our guests who didn’t know each other well. There are showers on the boat to get rid of the salt afterwards. We then had a buffet dinner with a great variety.

    Sveta, Ella and the whole team made the experience very enjoyable, being attentive to all our needs.

    Thank you so much for offering such a great experience!
