A great way to see some of Bangkok before heading down to the beaches for a more relaxed trip. Go to Bank a few days before to make the most of your time there if you can. I loved the kayaking and also did the additional elephant sanctuary, both were excellent.

This tour was a great mix of organised activities and free time, highly recommend taking up some of the optional activities - it's a great introduction to the south of Thailand. Ben, our guide, was exceptional—kind, caring, and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond and her insights into the local culture, buddism and mindfulness made the trip brilliant.

Our trip to the beaches of Thailand was incredible! Such a beautiful country. The activities were enjoyable, the food was delicious, and the accommodations were very comfortable. Snorkeling in paradise and visiting the elephant sanctuary were some of the most amazing experiences of my life. And our trip leader, Cherry, was top-notch! She was fun and engaging and took excellent care of the group. I highly recommend this trip!
