From the hotel pick up to drop off, it was very smooth. Once you boarded, delicious lunch was served. Then you draw from a hat who will be your guide throughout the day. We had a great guide Oley, a very gentle man and took care of us for the kayaking and flower making. His English is very good and explained patiently everything to us. We met John Gray on one of the kayak trips and he is a nice man and spoke to us too! We did 4 kayak trips and each one is different with same amazing sceneries. I truly enjoyed this trip!

Would definitely recommend doing this while in Phuket the Scenery is amazing, the food was delicious and the staff were oustanding. Tai, Bunman (because he had a man bun) and Again made this trip a 10/10 experience with there awesome attitude willingness to talk about the landscape and environment. Special mention to Tai who jumped into action when both my daughters were stung by Jellyfish by quickly whipping up a tamarind paste to ease the pain. without taking a second to think the team grabbed the jellyfish and moved it away from the swimmers and assisted in helping my daughters. Even with the sting this experience was amazing so thank you to the team at John Grey!!
