I booked 4 islands tour thru ticket office booth.Hong Island is stunningly beautiful.The other islands just ok.The Thai long boat operator was friendly but on the way back he said that his boat was out of fuel and he dropped my family 5 klms from the hotel.we had to hike to the main road and flag down a motorbike taxi.I believe that the boat operator was lying.I should have smashed something on the boat.a very irritating end to a great day.Do not go to Hong Island by Thai long boat.

I booked 4 island tour from my guest house for 500 bath per person!
The mini bus arrived 25 minutes late, the boat engine is so loud you will hear nothing, the guide at least was friendly and always happy!
the islands were VERY CROWDED and the snorkelling spot is not good, just 2 kind of fish!!!

Have travelled most parts of the world but have not seen such guys like them, when we brought the tickets for phi phi island, we were told that the package includes food & softdrink, as we did not the liked the food, we just asked them for the soft drink so that atleast something can be digested, but were refused & we did not argue. This was all on the island. Then when we were waiting for the boat to be back on krabi island in the evening, the boat guide which was with us just came & yelling as to why we asked the drink, we said its ok, just be cool but probably he was in the fighting mood, he kept yelling & also was ready to fight, he just came in aggression to literally beat us & none of their senior member came to stop him, instead they were sought of encouraging him, then he rudely said that he wont allow us in his boat, just see his daring, a mere guide/driver disallowing his tourists onto the boat by terrorising us. Nobody stopped him from doing so.
The most pathetic company we have ever seen, just imagine to be there alone on the island that too by the company to which you have paid. Somehow we managed to be back on krabi island.

The most terrible time we had experienced.

DONT RISK your life, they have mafia's as there staff.

I booked 4 islands tour from the hotel for 400 baht per person after haggling, didnt get to choose which operator they always say whatever operator you get is a 'very good operator'.

I think all of them are same, even if you book through any tourist information centre booth, they will contact any operator who still have vacancy and will put your name through.

We boarded a big longtail boat which can fill 40-50 people, so if you are in a group of 6 people or more it is better to hire a personal longtail boat.

Hotel pickup is included, they will give you coloured sticker printed with the company logo - colour is according to your group . The tourist guide will wear bright coloured shirt and they will tell you they are not really good in english so that you are ready to not understand them. in the end the boat engine is so loud you will hear nothing.

they will provide drink and lunch as well as fresh fruits, i rode a different operator next day they didnt provide the fruit so i think that is a plus. the lunch will be served at tub island with asian style lunch cooked by muslims so it is halal. they provide rice in a container with chicken in gravy, fried chicken and fried salad to be taken from bigger containers.

saw some negative feedback maybe its up to the tourist guide and crews involved.

We stayed at Ao Nang, Cliff View Resort. Resort staff arranged for our both tours.

1) Phi Phi tour - Our guide was a lady called Dau. Very good guide, smiling, helpful, decent English speaking. Offered, juice, water, bread cake, meals in restaurant with speed boat. Very good experience with them for Phi Phi Tour.

2) 4 Island tour - Wooden longtrail boat. It was making too much noise and guide was hardly audible as boat machine noise was just too much. However, we arranged from our resort and we paid only for one person other was free, so no much to complain. Food was ok, however enjoyed at all the places and very co-operative.


Regards,
Ankur
