My friend and I took the Sights of Koh Samui tour. We really liked traveling in a cool van around the island. The tour guide did a great job explaining the sights and pointing out traditions and history. They provided water and cool towels which was nice.

The tour was well organized, pick up at the indicated location worked perfectly. Guide was funny and enthusiastic but sometimes hard to understand his English. The tour was informative but most of the time is spend driving and the time at the sights could be longer. Lunch break isn't until the last stop at around 1 or 2 pm so bring snacks as there is no time to eat at the stops before. The tour covers the touristic hotspots in Koh Samui so prepare to fend of vendors at each of the stops. Elephants were a bit disturbing as one of the former reviewers mentioned and the waterfall was nearly dry (March, so not a lot of rain). Temples were interesting and mummified monk were interesting and worth a visit.

Dear our valued customer, Thank you very much for your review, it is always helpful for us to keep improve our services. We totally understand that customers always want to spend more times of each interesting places but as of the time limited and we need to keep it in the row to be covered all the program and thank you for your understanding. I can say again that we don't involve with this elephant issue and I agree with your feeling. In soon, we will have a program offers to customers being a part of Elephant preservation, this it would make a wonderful experience to you. March, April, or even May are summer, so unfortunately the waterfall is get dried if you visit in these times of the year. Again thank you for your feedback, we hope to welcome you with a better services for next time. Best regards, Jiggy

Fun day with great tour guides! The guide gave a brief explanation at each landmark and gave everyone their own time to explore each area to do what they wanted. Great tour to get some good holiday pictures! Would recommend taking some snacks to eat along the way as the best opportunity for lunch is the last stop at a lovely authentic Thai restaurant.

We really enjoyed this tour. Yes, you are in the bus for a long time but it’s a good way to see some of the island. Really liked our driver. He was funny! Nice touch giving out water and cold towels. The big disappointment for us was seeing the elephants chained up at the waterfall stop. So sad. They had no water and looked thoroughly miserable. There was a sign up saying “Sensitive people not allowed” and a stick of bamboo with “to hit sensitive people with” written on it!! Nice!! We do not agree with riding on elephants and to see them chained up like this kind of spoilt the whole experience.

Temples, a monk that is mummified a waterfall well sort of, a lot of driving for not much return. Take snacks if you decide to take tour as lunch is at the the of your around 2pm and there is not much time during stops to pick something up unless at the waterfall you feel like a pancake which are pretty good. Our guide shared herself between to tour buses which we didn’t like and her English was not easy to understand. She would give a brief summary of the stop then “see you at...” then leave us to work out the rest.

All the most notable city sights were covered, so I'd say this tour was definitely a success. Calling our guide 'experimented English speaking guide', though, is a bit of a reach. But he was funny, so it's ok ;)

City tour was amazing and we hade wonderful time.
Wat Phra Yai and Wat Plai Laem are so special and more than beautiful. We will visit them again since there was so many hand crafted details and so little time to see and memorize all of them!
