What Are The Best Private Tours In Phuket, Thailand?
The Best Private Tours In Phuket
I am often asked by our guests which of the Private Tours we offer I would recommend to them. The answer is always a little more complicated than simply selecting one tour. Over the 16 years I have lived here in Phuket my personal favorite Private Tour has changed.
When I first came to Phuket I thought that the Phi Phi Island Private Tour was by far the best tour you could do. Swimming, snorkeling, amazing beaches, and a nice stop at the Khai Islands for a drink and relaxation on the way home.
But as I started to explore more, and visit more off-the-beaten-path destinations I found that Phi Phi was not my favorite Private Tour.
What Is The Best Private Tour?
Honestly the answer is subjective. When answering this for our guests I ask them a few questions:
- Is this your first visit to Phuket Thailand?
- Have you ever done a Private Tour before?
- Are you travelling with Kids or Elderly Passengers?
Based on the answers to these questions I will then recommend the Private Tour that I think suits the guests the best. Let me give you an example.
Recently I had a family of 7 inquire about a private tour. 2 passengers were elderly, 2 passengers were under 10 and the rest were adults. Based on the makeup of this private tour group I suggested that a combined tour of Phang Nga Bay and Khai Island would be suitable.
It is a good mix of snorkeling, sightseeing, kayaking, and mangrove exploring. In my view this tour group, was the best private tour.
On the same day, I had a group of 5 inquire and they wanted the clearest water snorkeling we could find during the season. As we were in the middle of the wet season and places like Similan were closed, I recommended the guests go to Raya Yai and Noi. Beautiful beaches, good seas, clear water, and great snorkeling.
So as you can see, the answer to what is the Best Private Tour is a little subjective to who will be onboard with you. If you’d like to find out the Best Private Tour for you, then feel free to contact us.
