Fun Dayu2026.rain or shine!
Tour guide was very sweet and nice. We had a great time even thought it rained off/on. We were in the water anyway. The tour itself was great along with our guide and driver. nnHowever, there were 4 Thai young people in the group who was constantly late (20+ minutes) from pick up to coming back from activities and an Indian couple w/ a child (25+ minutes). This caused delay in our return to our hotel by at least 1-1/2 hour, which made it a very long day. nnThe tour group really need to emphasis strict policy and leave people for not showing up on time or at least give them the extra 5 -10 minutes. Anything beyond that, then those people need to be left behind as there are taxi cabs that can be taken back to the hotel. Everyone need to be mindful of time or take your own private tour.
It's Good day out
I've been on this trip before when I last came to Krabi, the spa pools were nice, we didn't go to waterfall as the water wasn't clear apparently, our guide was Apple ud83cudf4e she was fun and friendly ud83dudc4dud83dude4f emerald pool is clear and blue and wasn't too busy which was good, blue pool wasn't much to look at. The food buffet was good so there is value for money, after eating we went to Tiger temple, around 1200 steps to the top, the steps are steep but we were thankful for the wet weather as if it were sunny and humid you would definitely sweat alot. Wasn't impressed by the temple but the view is usually good apart from the wet weather where we could only see most up so high, be careful it's slippery on the tiles up there.
My sister and I enjoyed our trip to the hot springs and to the Emerald Pool. The hot springs were enjoyable and very relaxing. The Emerald pool was beautiful and it was a great place for a swim; it truly lived up to its name. There was a bit of a hike through the jungle to get to the Emerald pool but it was worth the hike. The lunch was also great. We would definitely recommend this excursion.
Jungle tour, emerald, crystal, hot spring, tiger cave
Bass was a great tour guide. Lots of useful info, took photos, kept our bags safe whilst the group swam and explored the locations.nnOn hand for questions and provided great recommendations for other attractions around Krabi. nnHighly recommend the tour. Great way to see a lot in a short space of time. Ask for Bass when you book u263aufe0fud83dudc4dud83cudffb
Good day trip
Lovely day trip, guides were friendly and gave good information. Hot springs were great and the emerald pool was beautiful but slightly crowded. The tiger temple hike at the end is harder than we anticipated, you really need prior hiking experience which we felt wasnu2019t put across very well before we started. Felt amazing to complete it though and the view is incredible. Trainers are a must also if youu2019re female donu2019t forget you will need to cover up at the bottom and top of the hike as itu2019s a temple.
OK, not great.
The guide was really sweet and the Hot Springs were fabulous, would have happily spent more time here and not bothered with the rest. The Emerald pool looks like a UK Lido. Didn't bother swimming as it was heaving. Walk to Blue pool was lovely and it was beautiful, also stopped at Hermit's shrine, which we had all to ourselves. Lunch was OK, but we would rather have bought something from one of the stalls nearby. Tiger Cave Temple was ok, but it was the end of the day and with temperatures of 38 degrees Celsius we opted out of the 1267 steps to the viewpoint. Glad we did as those who did it, didn't come back raving; just wrecked and sweaty!
Relaxing pools and intense hike
The beginning of the tour involved going to the Krabi Hot Spring and Emerald Pool. The ride there is a little over an hour in the van, so bring some entertainment for the long ride. Both pools were very relaxing, with a good amount of time spent at each. The tiger cave temple viewpoint was an intense hike, not for those with health issues or disabilities. I love climbing so it was a thrill to climb all 1260 steps to the top in the hot, humid Thailand weather. Great views on top but exhausting for sure. At the bottom I wanted a smoothie to refuel, but had it stolen from me by a monkey after a few sips. Admittedly, it was quite funny, but I thought about it afterward and itu2019s dangerous to have aggressive monkeys in such close proximity to tourists.
Amazing experience and value for money
Me and my partner booked this as part of our time in Krabi. This was the cheapest excursion we booked however it was the best one we participated in by far.nnFrom the get go that morning when we got collected from our hotel it was a very pleasant atmosphere. Our tour guide bass took the time to talk to us and explain different things belonging to the culture. Additionally, when we got to the different locations he took the time to explain them to the group and offered to look after our bags and take various photos etc along the way. nnThe lunch that was provided was excellent and the cashew nut chicken was divine. I personally would be a fussy eater and the smallest thing could easily put me off food however I couldnu2019t get enough of this. nnThe tiger cave temple itself was an amazing experience, but a tough climb. Yet again bass provided me and my partner with a bag to carry our water etc and waited for us to come back down the temple again. nnThe staff on this tour was out of this world and I would recommend anyone to participate in this tour as the staff along definitely made it better.
Two Relaxing Parts and One Tough Climb
Very fun day tour to hot springs, the Emerald pool and the Tiger Cave Temple.nnThe hot springs are right by the area where the van parks, so no hiking to it. Do be sure to bring a towel to dry off afterwards. The hot springs are really nice and relaxing with several different temperature pools to try out.nnThe Emerald Pool is another pool you can jump into. It's about a mile of walking to get to it and you pass by the Glass Pool on the way (which you can't go into). Past the Emerald Pool is the Blue Pool, which looks really neat but you can't go into it either. You get food at a restaurant next to the entrance to the Emerald Pool area for lunch and it was tasty fried rice, cashew chicken and tom yum soup.nnFinally, we did the climb up the 1,260 stairs and ~300m/1000ft of elevation to the Tiger Cave Temple. This is really hard, you'll be sweating a ton and a lot of the stairs are tall. That said the view from the top is really good and there's a water fountain on top to refill your bottle. Be sure to bring a water bottle and pace yourself up this!nnPersonally, I would have preferred a reversed order with the hard Tiger Cave Temple climb first and the hot springs last to relax and recover from the climb.
