“Great time”

Phuket ATV Adventure
Ranked #238 of 475 Tours in Phuket
Reviewed 19 February 2014

It was very enjoyable. Dusty for sure and not the sort of guarded ATV rides in the US we've experienced which made it that much more adventuresome. We ranged in ages from 26 to 65 and while parts of the trails were rough we had no issues. Very worth while in the end.

My wife and I decided to give it a go. Its was the first time for us to be on an ATV.
We chose the 2 hr program in which we went uphill to Big Buddha and then returned.
Initially there was registration & briefing. Then we took our helmets and went for test driving. This was followed by on / off road driving on the ATV. Since my wife doesn't drive, she chose to ride on the same ATV sitting behind me. In between it started raining. We were given complementary rain coats to put on. We stopped at Big Buddha, took lots of snaps, roamed around and then headed back. The guide was always ahead of us at a safe distance keeping a good eye on us. We finally returned to the camp, washed our feet and enjoyed some cool complementary refreshments.

From start to finish. What a great day.

The river rapids are incredible. The standard length is 5 klms we did 7 and the last 2 klms are the best.

Only problem was there are a lot of rafts on the river.

Would I do it again, you betcha.

The so called 2 persons buggies are very small and can not accommodate full size person unless was born as flexible as barbie. So, the next option is a real size buggy, which is what one expect to get. However, this comes with imaginary cost... a one hour ride will cost 5000 bht, for a rider and a passenger. For 2 cars, which is a normal 4 people family size, be ready to spend 10000 bht, which is over 300 usd. Just to understand, it is more than renting a 2 engines speed boat for the all day... what really makes is a tourist trap is the fact that they charge per head and not per car. Just imagine when renting a car with Avis, and the charges are per head...nevertheless, if u buy a package deal, with a tour agency, for all sort of activities, the travel agent is charged 1000 bht per car...which is 1/5 of the rip off price they scam poor tourists... votes with your legs, lets them eat their buggies and see how fast they come to their senses.

This was a great family experience. We chose the 2hr package with a visit to Big Buddha.
Our guides were helpful and explained the operation of the bikes and brakes well.
We travelled in the monsoon season of early October, the dirt tracks weren't muddy or slippery and there was no problem travelling in the jungle. Our guide was very informative and spoke English well at the Big Buddha giving us an indepth insight into this great monument.
Really enjoyed this activity, fun for all.
