We are often asked why we recommend certain tour companies and the answer is easy, it is down to our own personal experience and the feedback of our customers. If our customers love them, we recommend them, if they don't, their leaflets are not allowed on site.
2 days ago we had a family of 8 stay with us and they were looking for a fun half day tour. We recommended Lanta Kayaking who offer a 3 hour tour. As they were a group, we could get a discounted private tour just for them, at the time they wanted to go.
This tour takes you by longtail boat (a traditional Thai boat) to Talabeng island, Koh Kum and Koh Ung and finally ends with kayaking through the mangroves and to the Sea Cave at Talabeng.
The family loved it, but especially loved getting up close with the monkeys in the wild.
