There are many vacation hot spots in the world offering high-class accommodations, services, and amenities.
Going on a Phuket tour is one of the best traveling adventures you can experience in Asia.
The name Phuket is derived from the Malay word meaning hill. The Island has been well known since ancient times as an important stop along the Indo-Chinese trade route.
Many rare and precious items have been traded along that route by the great civilizations of the time including the French and the British. Phuket has grown into one of the premier holiday destinations in South East Asia and is one of the busiest travel destinations of Thailand.

Amazing experience – highlight of holiday.
Everything about this tour was sensational. The experience involved extra to what we thought and lunch was even included in the morning tour. The staff were very respectful and caring of the elephants and it is obvious they have a genuine love for the animals. One of the elephants was very playful in the water and splashing everyone. Suggest taking old clothes/swimmers as the water is quite muddy and you do get a little dirty but it is all part of the experience and worth it. We plan to do again when we return. Loved it!
Phuket: Half-Day Ethical Elephant Jungle Sanctuary reviewed by Tania
Brilliant hospitality, lunch and refreshments.
Booked online and didn’t realize we were given VIP seating with air conditioning which was great as it meant we didn’t have to smell the fumes from the boat, snorkeling equipment was provided and the guide was friendly and well understood, make sure you bring your own towels. The lunch provided could’ve been a bit more generous as this was shared between quite a few. Overall, a lovely experience.
Coral Bay & Phi Phi Island Tour by Big Boat & Premium Lunch reviewed by Vincent
Worth every Baht!!! Tata was our guide… The BEST!!
Racha Yai is so much better than Phi Phi Islands… Less people and the water was gorgeous! The lunch buffet was delicious and banana beach was fun! Tata and the Captain and crew were very accommodating even with not so good weather! I’d do this again!!

Phuket-travel tours booking and checking in was easy!
Phuket-travel tours booking and check-in all went smoothly without any hiccups. The only way it could’ve been improved would be if you could reserve seats for the bus. Also (and I know this isn’t getting your guide’s fault) the long wait after getting off the bus at 5 am for the 7 am boat was a bit crap.
