How was your Explore Tour Leader?
"Sharkey" was a good Tour Leader, providing the right balance of looking after us and letting us do our own thing. He was there when needed to help organise other activites as well as ensuring that all the transfers etc. went smoothly. Very patient and imaginative with the children (taught them some basic Thai which they demonstrated at a school!).
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Although described as relaxed, there is plenty to do and you will not be bored.
Do you have anything else to add?
A whistle-stop tour encompassing the bustle of Bangkok, the serenity of the jungle and the beautiful islands around Krabi. Superb food throughout (including a great red curry on the overnight train journey!) and beautifully presented cocktails at the jungle lodge. The included snorkelling trip are limited so if you want a bit more of this then you can arrange some on one of the free days in the islands. ATMs are widespread so you dont need to carry large amounts of cash around. We loved the Thai food (which is inexpensive), cocktails (available everywhere!), massages (also available everywhere and inexpensive), the fantastic scenery and friendly people (including our tour group which comprised a great bunch of people!).
