Excellent tour which offers something for everyone. The boat trip and caves offered breathtaking views of the natural environment. Kayaking through the water was a great way to see the caves up close whilst maintaining the calm and beauty of the environment. The tour guides provided an excellent explanation of the science of the caves and they worked relentlessly to make the trip enjoyable for everyone. The buffet lunch, afternoon tea and dinner were excellent with wide choices -tasty and plentiful. The cultural practice of making and then illuminating the krathongs after dark was spectacular as was the illuminating plankton in the water in the dark cave. Also the water activities during free time were lots of fun.
