This day was amazing. We had Mr B as our guide and he was fabulous. I have read other reviews criticising him but the truth is he was friendly, helpful and encouraging - and I caught him on more than one occasion counting to ensure everyone was on board! He and his crew were great - you have to go... More

Great experience with this company. We were picked up on time and taken to their facility that was right next to the pier. The only annoying part was that when we got to the facility we were told to have a seat and we sat there for an hour waiting for more people to show up. No one told us... More

We had the best day for our second year wedding anniversary exploring the Similan islands. The natural beauty speaks for herself but the team at Rak Talay Travel really made the day what it was. Our host was cute, friendly and funny and put everyone totally at ease. We visited four of the islands on our day (due to the... More

Our tour guide was fantastic. She was fun, cheeky and very knowledgeable. The Islands were amazing. The water crystal clear and perfect for snorkeling. The sand at Maya Bay was the softest I've ever felt. It was an extremely enjoyable day and would recommend it.

Phiphi+Khai islands tour done with Rak Talay Travel. Booked 3 months prior to trip. Okay price. Probably could find cheaper walking around Phuket. We was picked up at 7:20 and the briefing started at 9am. We had to wait quite a bit for other customers to arrive (poor planning). During the tour briefing our tour guide 'Mr B' was absolutely...

Picking up at the hotel, water and soft drinks served during the whole trip for free as well as fresh fruit, lunch included and dropping off at your hotel. Nice crew and guide, everybody was friendly. There is no reason to go to Khai Island as there is just a small beach and lot of boats and turists. However, you... More

Visited Phi Phi and 'the beach' with Mr B. It was brilliant. He was entertaining and knowledgable. We were looked after and would absolutely go with him again. We took our baby with us and they gave extra attention to us.

The boat was quite small and very bumpy on the way. Not sure if it was the Phi Phi Islands as such or the way the tour was planned, but it was rather disappointing to see everything in a flash and spend less than an hour on such places as the Bamboo Island or Maya Bay...

Later trip to avoid the crowds, unfortunately lunch was slightly late. Great instructors and staff on board. The speedboat schedule was on time and all the passengers were on board on time too. Great snorkeling experience where we saw a huge jellyfish!

Totally not worth it. Nothing to see on coral. Waste of time. Long distance by speedboat. Expensive. Started 1.5h late and ended on scheduled time. Good guide. Good food.
