Recommended driver in phuket

I am going to phuket in 10 days and staying in patong with my partner. We are wanting to hire a driver for a day to take us on tours.

If any body could recommend any drivers in phuket that would be good.

Thanks in advance.

Just back today and had great friendly driving service from Lek Landen who has a great sense of humour and can relate really well to Aussies - like lots of Thais, often they are very respectful and just need you to say that its ok to be relaxed and join in the jokes. (Some visitors actually treat them like servants! Can you believe it!)

He responded same day to emails for bookings before we arrived and was there waiting (even when our flight was delayed) to pick us up from the airport, and took us on our trip for the whole day around the island. (Day cost was 2,000 baht but we happily gave him 2,500 and asked him to join us as good company for lunch at Naturel Restaurant in Phuket town.)

Send him an email: Leklanden@hotmail.com

We just got back yesterday and used a driver called Mr Champion a number of times. We found him out the back of the holiday inn in Patong. He was very friendly and has a 7 seater 4WD. His details are +66869536545... Champion19144@gmail.com

We can highly recommend him from our experiences.

I have used Panya on many occasions and have always found him ( and his wife) charming, knowledgeable and prompt.

We used Aek for 3 days

His service was excellence.. he drove us to Big Budha despite the location quite far from our hotel at patong.

We travelled with our elderly mother who had difficulty to get into the car as his car is pretty high for her. In the 1st morning, when he noticed her difficulty, he quickly asked our mother to not get in the car first as he wanted to look for something to assist her. To our surprised, he went to the nearest mini market shop and bought stool that just enough high for our mother to get into the car easily. So the stool accompany us for the whole 3 days trip :D

If one day we travel to Phuket again, we will use his service again.
