Great people / chaotic planning / hidden fees
, Jan 2020
This trip includes many wonderful things - a canoe ride into a limestone cave, another canoe ride into a hidden lagoon, cruising through the spectacular scenery of Phang Na Bay, and, of course, a visit to James Bond Island. All of these elements are wonderful, but the organization of the tour leaves much to be desired. Firstly, the van sent to our hotel to pick us up was almost 30 minutes late, and then we were charged an extra fee, payable in cash, for a “remote” pickup (even though our official Viator receipt showed pick up from our area as included). When we finally arrived at the coast (not yet at the pier), we had a further wait while too many people were checked in at a very crowded mustering point. A further nuisance was a visit to a ticket booth 2 blocks from the mustering point, where, again, we had to fork out more cash for park entry fees, which, again, was advertised as “included” in my official Viator receipt. After that, we were then hustled through hundreds of other tourist, on dozens of other tours, and onto buses to take us to the boat. It was the most poorly organized start, to what was otherwise a lovely tour. Once on board, the crew were great. They were attentive, funny, sometimes cheeky (in a good way), and genuinely committed to ensuring we had a nice time. These folks evidently work hard, and we were pleased to tip them generously. The food on board was good, although the best part (the Thai chicken wings) were rationed out in a way that did not reflect the price of the tour, in comparison with the Thai economy. My suggestion is that the tour operators should have more of their popular dishes, and let their guests enjoy the food as they wish. The lads who paddle the canoes are fit and careful - the cave and lagoon portions are incredibly interesting and the limestone formations incredible. James Bond Island is a good place to say one has visited, especially if one is a Bond fan, and has seen “The Man with the Golden Gun”. Be prepared to be a little disappointed, though, as the beautiful setting of the Scaramonga lair is completely overrun by thousands of people each day, there are dozens of cluttered vendor stalls on the iconic beach facing Ko Ta Pu, the mushroom-shaped rock island in front of the main island, and the place is dirty. One’s time there is limited to about 20 minutes, which is enough. We were thankful to get back off the island, on one of the shuttle boats, and back to our boat. The fun finale of the water tour was a stop on the 1 hour way back to the pier at a remote beach on the side of an uninhabited limestone island. We got to jump off the boat, swim, and canoe to the beach. There were monkeys, and a lot of laughing. The arrival back at the pier was the antithesis of our arrival - orderly, quiet, and pleasant. We got right onto the bus to go back to the mustering point, and into our van back to our hotel. However, we were not back until after 7:00pm, so it was a very long day. In retrospect, I would have preferred a shorter day, with fewer people, more concentration on the essential elements of Phang Na Bay, and better food and drink. I would have liked to go directly from my hotel to the boat we were to cruise on, without the wasted time between. Once on the boat, I would have preferred to do the cave and lagoon experiences, but simply cruise around James Bond Island to get some photographs. I would also have liked more swimming time, to just relax in a beautiful part of the Bay. Viator needs to work on a tour like this, with the option of better service to and on the cruising boat, with a smaller size of guests. People will pay a premium for better organization and service. Again, the people on the boat were lovely, but this was the worst organized tour that we - long time users of Viator - have ever been on. Viator definitely needs to address the issues of better planning and hidden fees, or we will not be the only ones who rate this tour as merely average.
