Owner description: Kayaking in the deep jungle, mangrove, canyons and lagoons. Meet the wildlife! We will pick you up around 8.00 AM at your hotel/resort. Once we arrived at the kayak pier, our team will set your kayak while your are enjoying a cup of coffee or tea (free). We will give you a dry bag for your camera, a bottle of water, a life jacket and your paddle. Ok, time to get onto your kayak. You will discover 3 different style of landscape. First, we will paddle between limestone cliffs and Andaman sea, then we will enter a breathtaking and majestic jungle-canyon area. The third area is the deep mangrove, where the monkeys are hiding. 3 amazing atmospheres. At the end of the tour, after refreshing yourself with juicy and sweet fresh fruits, we will kindly drop you back at your hotel. Appreciate the wonders of nature against a backdrop of endless greenery and learn about the amazing works of Earth’s ecology. Amazing feeling while passing thru this wild and preserve nature. Enjoy the pure and ever green jungle. Eco-friendly kayaks, dewy fresh air and the cooing and buzzing of birds, this is definitely ultimate tranquility, with lots of fun! Quiet water, very low risk. 2 hours of amazing time on the water.

we took this tour early april and had a great day out , with Thierry the guide / owner of the cube ,
a funky custom truck with comfy seating in the open air (complete with sound system and complimentary drinks).

the first stop was a two hour kayaking trip through the mangroves , he uses his own guide here who looked after us , but didn't take long to join up with others from others groups etc , this was so much fun with all the jokes and laughter from the other guides etc , yes it did take 2 hours but was well and truly worth the effort .

next was lunch at Khao Thong Terrace which was amazing , great view and fantastic food , the crab curry was to die for and was the best we had doing our stay in krabi ,
washed down with a ice cold beer . what a great spot indeed .

After a lunch, we were then taken on a nature walk where we sat with our legs in the cool cool freshwater river water for a while , this was a really authentic experience which very few western tourists would get to see unless they went of track etc
them it was down another side track to a little blue lake , where there were divers about to dive the blue blue waters , this was so cool and was the first time Thierry had seen the divers there himself .

then was off to a local farm where we were shown how trees are tapped to bleed rubber from them which is then made into tyres etc , also saw plam oil tress and pineapple plants , very interesting indeed

them off to have a walk around the local traditional markets which was a real eye opener indeed
thanks for a great day out and we look forward to using your services again next year . we are traveling with friends next year , one of them is very interested in Buddhism , and told them you may be able to take them to a temple where the tourists don't go etc .

once again thanks for the best day out and will be in touch closer to our 2015 travel dates to talk to you about new tours etc
cheers , rob , wen , em , rach

We spent a memorable and impressive day with Thierry.
He has shown us Krabi / Thailand from another site. He drives only with selected small groups. Far away from mass tourism.
We had an interesting discussion on Buddhism and as the universe. Thierry is a very likeable and knowledgeable man. We were very enriching to spend the day with him. He also wants to offer boat tours on small islands next year. We will make sure when we go back. This can only be good.

This is by far the most authentic day tour experience in Ao Nang. Thierry is an absolute gentleman and is a terrific tour guide. From the booking to the final ride home, Thierry couldn't do enough for us and you can tell he genuinely wants you to experience the very best of Ao Nang.

The tour started out with us being collected at our hotel in the super cool and comfortable "Cube" vehicle. Our first stop was a two hour kayaking trip through the mangroves in the outback of Ao Nang...it was fantastic! We later headed off for lunch in a beautiful location with food that was second to none. After a relaxing lunch, we were then taken to a nature walk where we went for a dip in a freshwater river - this was a really authentic experience with very few western tourists around (if any!). The remaining half of the tour took us to great cultural experiences including a rubber farm, pineapple farm and traditional market.

All round, I cannot say enough good about this tour. It was great value for money, comfortable and covered a ton of activities and experiences. I highly recommend it for friends, families and couples alike who want to experience an authentic tour in Ao Nang.

We wanted to see the real Krabi, the local way of life. This tour is our answer. It kicks off with 2 hours of tiring and exhausting Kayaking. An excellent way to burn off the buffet breakfast! Lunch at Khao Thong Terrace was amazing. Breath taking view and marvelious crab curry! Five stars Michelin dish I must say! The nature walk was awesome as we take a dip in the fresh water pool which send chills up my legs. The hot climax mixed with the cold fresh water cause numbness in my legs. It was a pleasant experience though!

Took the tour in late March, only the 2 of us plus Thierry. Good mix of activities and scenery. Kayaking was great fun in amazing environment. Lunch we ordered some of the best thai food on our 3 week holiday. Bouncin around in the cube, great way to see the Krabi country side. Couldn't fault it.
Cheers Thierry
