Go to local operator or book online before our trip?

Hi People,

Would you recommend us to book the tour with the local operator only when we are there at Patong? Or would you recommend us to book from online first?

Please advice as we are on TIGHT BUDGET!

If you are on a budget id just book when you arrive. There are heaps of cheaper tours avaliable and a lot of the tour names are similar so it gets confusing. If youre willing to spend roughly 200aud for a couple id recommend Phuket Sail Tours as they are 100% safe, great quality food, and best of all small number of passengers per tour. If your interested in them id book asap as they fill up fast

For us we usually booking a tour with the local operator (just want to save credit charges) :P

about booking online just make sure they're in good operator.

There are so many tour operators who would be able to assist you when you arrive. But for the PST or Simba tours you need to book in advance.
