The accommodations, foods, and location were very satisfying, The place is really beautiful the 4 island has a good view, beautiful flora, and fauna.

We had nice sightseeing at James bond island, and at Phi Phi Island we had greater leisure time at the beach, fun watersport activity, and even we visit the national park these are the places we covered and it was simply ' AWESOME' by its scenic beauty. Nice experience in the long tail boat and speed boat. Airport picked-up and dropped-off were on time... Really the trip was perfectly planned and well-executed. This is a good trip for family too. We are so happy that the whole trip was hassle-free throughout.
