Absolutely AMAZING! 10/10 recommend doing the early bird tour. Hotel pickup was right on time. They will confirm the time with you the day before via email. Ours was at 4:45 AM. We got to the loading area and had a light continental breakfast coffee, tea, danish, toast, cheese, small sandwiches, juice and the opportunity to get things at various gift shops that would be useful on the trip. We picked up our snorkel fins and set off. The boat ride took about 1 hour and we stopped in the middle to watch the sunrise over some islands. The sunrise was so beautiful and tranquil. The boat is very fast, so be prepared. We first went to Maya Bay. When you get off the boat, go immediately back to the short three minute walk across the island. The best views are from the back and it can get croweded as other boats arrive. BIG TIP - wear good water shoes. I recommend Chacos. You have to walk through a lot of shallow water and its very very rocky. Once you see the back side of Maya Bay then explore the front. After this we did some touring of islands via the boat the tide was too shallow to dock and then made our way to lunch. Lunch was amazing. Super great food mostly Thai but some American and good opportunity to lay out and get some rays. After lunch we went snorkeling and saw some shark and cool fish. Then docked at a beach, went back, did snorkeling, docked at a beach and made our trip home. The whole time we were on the boat there were snacks, water, and soda available as well as a fresh fruit assortment. Ice cream was provided when you got back to the loading area. They kept you very well fed and hydrated during this journey. Our tour guide, Tuk, knew so much about the islands and their history. It was a very informative tour. I really suggest the sunrise, you beat a lot of the crowds and the view are breathtaking. It was early, but well worth it!
This is THE trip to do ... you are well looked after by TUK and crew... its is early but worth it .... we had the most amazing time and experience on this trip .... if you go on another later trip you will regret it ...
we got on PHI PHI island when not busy and were able to put our towels down and relax ... you cant do this if you leave it until later ....
book this one you will not regret it x

I had read a lot of comments about those high speedboats in general, so I had concerns about the quality of the tour. Now that I've done it, I can only recommend it!! It was very well organised, the crew was great, safety is taken very seriously, and the places you get to see are awesome!! If you want to visit Phi Phi Islands, the Early Bird Phi Phi Island tour is highly recommended!
Drinks and snacks are provided during the tour, the around 11:30am we had lunch near a really beautiful beach. The duration of the tour is, according to my view, perfect. Not too short, not too long.
The tour of the Phi Phi Islands was the highlight of our Phuket adventure. Indy and his team were very attentive. I would recommend that they offer the video services at the beginning of the trip however. We got the video and it's filled with people we don't know or care about. More focus could have been placed on us if they knew we wanted the video in advance. We do enjoy the great views of the islands even if they are canned.
Highly recommended! Very well organized, nice and funny crew. The speedboat is cool.
The restaurant for lunch is really nice and the food is good.
Only consider that the return is very bumpy.
I like the early schedule so when you get to the island they are not so crowded and you can still have nice pictures.
Muy recomendado! Un tour bien organizado con una tripulacion muy divertida. El bote rapido es muy bonito tambien.
El restaurante para el almuerzo es muy bonito y la comida es buena.
Solo considere que el returno el bote brinca demasiado en las olas.
Al ser tan temprano, cuando llegan a la isla aun no hay tanta gente y aun pueden tomar buenas fotos
Le bateau était bondé. Un beau Speedboat mais on était serré dessus. Nous devions voir le le lever de soleil mais le guide nous a simplement dit Désolé nous avons du retard, on ne le verra pas ce que j'ai compris quand j'ai vu tout le Monde sur le Bateau et donc le nombre de ramassages dans les Hôtels. Ramassage à 5.00 du matin pour ne même pas voir le levé de soleil. Excursion chère pour ce que c'est, les Iles Monkey c'est simplement des singes que l'on verrait mieux au zoo. Un monde fou sur cette petite plage où il est impossible de se bouger si vous êtes plus de 30 : on a même pas su débarquer tellement il y avait des bateaux. Si vous êtes un grand amateur de plongée tuba, de plages et grand soleil, cette excursion est pour vous mais je pouvais très bien me coucher sur la plage de Patong, c'était la même chose. Le buffet à midi était par contre varié et copieux. C'est une excursion qu'ils annoncent tôt pour éviter d'avoir trop de monde sur les plages, etc.. et finalement il y avait la foule. Je pense qu'il vaut mieux organiser ce genre d'excursion avec un petit guide local et privé ou en petits groupes d'amis mais ici on est un numéro.
