Sharky

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Words are not enough.... Sharky as he calls himself... was excellent... and the whole group or Sharky Family as we were known... could have not asked for more... he was great with the kids and was warm, kind and informative,, nothing was ever too much... and he tried never to be OTT either... just right.... a great leader.. made the trip too..

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

temperatures were warm every day even when overcast... from bangkok to the beaches... when the sun did come out of the clouds it was pretty streamy ! a few probs with mosquito's, so take the spray.... Food was no problem and was excellent... make sure the kids like rice ! take some ear plugs and mask for overnight train... or have a few extra beers before hand ! - otherwise, come relaxed and go with the flow....

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

all aspects good.... Koh Lanta did dissapoint somewhat... more so with accomodation... and location on the island here... a long ferry ride here to a fairly non special resort on the island. Koh Phi Phi don... then main town here was not worth the stop.... there was a lack of snorkelling.. would be better to have more time for this.. and in some respects alot of free time too so quite a few extras to pay for on top of the cost of the trip.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

Swimming through the Emerald Cave in to a secret a tropical paradise, which was used by pirates to stash their treasure. Snorkelling in the crystal clear waters and having lunch on Bamboo Island. Riding an elephant thru the stunning scenery in Khao Sok National Park, stunning! There are so many highlights on the 14 day tour.

Tour Leader Name

Suwipa

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Suwipa’s was very knowledgeable and gave us all a real insight to local traditions, family life & history of the country. Her knowledge of the sights in Bangkok were also great. Suwipa went out of her way to assist us.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

A fantastic whirlwind tour of Thailand, travelling between locations was a pleasure as multiple modes of transport are used. Thailand has amazing scenery once outside of Bangkok, the further south you went the better it got. Starting in the jungle with lush rainforest and lime stone cliffs, then islands with the crystal clear sea. The snorkelling off the islands is really good. On the islands you can do as little of much as you like. I only saw 2 beach sellers whilst on Koh Lanta making it a pleasure to go on to the beach. We found this to be wonderful tour for young and old and highly recommend it.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

The kids loved buzzing around Bangkok on the Tuk Tuks, elephant riding in Khao Sok National Park and swimming through the Emerald cave to the secluded beach on Koh Muk. For me the food was a real highlight... I could (and did!) eat Thai curries and Tom Yum soup morning, noon and night.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

A real character and a hit with the kids. Couldn't do enough to look after us, and had a never ending supply of snacks for when energy levels were running low.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

There is lots of clambering on and off boats on this tour, and wading out to boats from beaches. So I'd recommend taking water shoes or good waterproof sandals.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

Thailand is such a great place for a family adventure; the people are gentle, ever smiling and incredibly welcoming.

The best bit was island hopping. The islands are paradise and being able to spend time on three islands was amazing.
