This was not my first trip to Phuket, but it was my first trip there with my family. As a family of 5 I have found it is much easier to pre organise a good part of our holiday. I stumbled across Easy Day Thailand on Jamie's Phuket Blog (http://jamie-monk.blogspot.com.au), and after reading some of the other reviews on Trip Advisor took the plunge and contacted them. I am so glad I did!
I emailed off a detailed enquiry with a list of all the activities we were interested in, along with a request for options for other activities. I very promptly received a reply from Francesco with a detailed listing of options, recommendations and costs. We proceed to correspond intermittently for several months leading up to our holiday whilst I honed my final list of activities to suit my family. We also organised to meet at the hotel at a time to suit me after we arrived to finalise everything and receive any vouchers necessary.
I booked tours and activities operated by Easy Thailand themselves, as well as tours run by other operators. Easy Day also provided private transfers to some of the activities we undertook to make our desired itinerary work to our best advantage. All of their drivers were extremely good. I'd go so far to say they had the smoothest and safest drivers we had during our stay- their vans were always immaculately clean and they were always punctual to the provided pick up times. They also provide all drinks for any tours/activities operated by them.
I booked the following tours run directly by Easy Day:-
* Private Tour of Phang Nga Bay (otherwise known as James Bond Island to many) - Our guide Phun (Bee) was superb and really helped us get the most out of the visit to Sarasin Bridge, Wat Suwan Kuha, Phang Nga Bay and Ko Panyee. We travelled at our own pace and were given great insight into Thai culture and history along the way. Bee immediately made everyone feel at ease and ensured we stayed well hydrated and she happily took family photos for us too!
* Thai Cooking Class (private)- this was also fantastic as it was conducted in a family home in Kathu. I let them know in advance which dishes I wanted to learn to cook and it all just happened- my lesson was extremely well organised. Not only did this give me the opportunity to learn to cook my dishes, but it also gave me further insight into Thai lifestyles. Bee again came along to assist with the lesson and we cooked up enough food to feed my entire family of 5 who were able to come along to enjoy my efforts!
I also organised the following activities via Easy Day:-
* Tiger Kingdom
* Premium Day Trip with Royal Jet Cruiser 9 to Phi Phi Island- I booked this option on Francesco's advice and it was definitely the right decision.
* Elephant Trek
* John Grey Starlight Sea Canoe
In summary, anything you want to do, Easy Day Thailand can do it for you; whether it is a private tour just for your group or a tour operated by someone else. They listen to what you want to do. They are flexible, will give you any information you need and make recommendations for you, but they are never pushy. Their guides and drivers are excellent. We had a great holiday in Phuket thanks to Easy Day and in particular Francesco Ferrari and Bee. I can't recommend them highly enough and will be contacting them again when next I travel to Thailand! Thanks for helping to make our family holiday so memorable.
