Good for avoiding crowds


Popular for azure waters and white sand beaches, the Phi Phi Islands are a major hotspot for visitors to Thailand. While the islands are picturesque, being stuck on a slow, crowded tourist boat can spoil the experience. On this tour, take a small speedboat to see the well-known sites and secluded spots where you can take in the islands’ natural beauty.
  • First footsteps in the sand: make landfall early to avoid the crowds
  • Tailor the day to your interests with a flexible itinerary
  • Snorkel gear is included, so don't stress about fitting a mask in your luggage
  • Start the day off the right way with breakfast on the beach

Think twice - No cancelation even on bad weather
, Jan 2022
We were looking forward for this tour but the forecast for the trip day was bad. The company did not postpone or canceled the trip due to the weather saying that it will improve during the day. We experienced rain and strong winds during most of the trip that made us sick during the cruise. Being at the island at pouring rain and strong wind is not the trip you are looking for. It seems that the company will not cancel or postpone a trip no matter what. My advice is that if you have any doubts about the weather cancel the trip! Save your money and most of all your health, as they will not do it.

Dear effi_b, Thanks for sharing your experience with Simba. We are sorry to hear that your tour experienced rain and strong winds. Please rest assured that the weather is something that we monitor very closely and do cancel tours if all day rain and unsafe winds are forecast. This was not something that was forecast on the day of your tour. It seems that we were unlucky with the rain and wind that was around, which is extremely unusual for this time of year. Our weather is monitored by Paul who has over 25 years experience in reading and predicting weather charts in his main profession which is as an airline pilot. It is very unfortunate that the weather did stay around but in the tropics it is generally very isolated and moves on quickly. It could be raining heavily in one part of Phuket and be completely dry in another. We do recommend that guests have a seasickness tablet also and these are readily available in our office and mentioned in our briefing in the morning because we don't want anyone to get sick. We believe that we have the highest safety standards in all of Thailand and you would be hard pressed to find another company that cares as much about safety as we do. Unfortunately we cannot control the rain and we would not risk the safety of our guests. Best regards, Andrea
Best tour of Phi Phi Islands
, Nov 2021
The sunrise tour to the Phi Phi Islands was amazing! Harry our tour guide and the crew were so accommodating and knowledgeable. It was an amazing day!

Hi Anika. We're so glad you enjoyed your day with us. Thanks for taking the time to review us and choosing Simba to visit our beautiful Phi Phi islands.
The best experience possible around Phi Phi Island.
, Nov 2021
We had an incredible experience with the Simba Tour Company. We were welcomed by Harry who was our tour guide, very kind and helpful person. We had the privilege to do this tour during the slow reopening for tourists so we were only 9 Persons and we met close to 0 other tourist during the tour (which is, as we understood, very rare). The tour starts at the hotel where the driver comes for you at the lobby, very welcoming, he puts you in the car with the other people doing the tour with you. You then travel to the Royal Marina, which is a very fancy port with nice apartments and houses all around it. You get to the office where you can eat some snacks, drink water/tea/coffee and go to the restroom with no additional fees. After a while Harry explains the tour and how we will proceed during the day. You then get on a very nice boat (pretty comfy compared to some speed boat you take on cheap tours), where you can enjoy the view no matter where you're seated. Then the real tour begins, and it's exactly as described in the viator page (looking at you , 1 star reviewer... lol) The tour feels very exclusive , you're really taken care of by the staff, and the whole staff is amazing. You get to eat some very good food for breakfast (fruits/cake and local delicacies) and for lunch (seafood, chicken, soup, spring rolls and steamed rice). Also Harry will make sure you have the most amazing day and will give you some anecdotes and explanations about all the places you visit. The staff provides you with beach mats, towels, 'water noodles' and all the equipment needed to snorkel. You also have access to drinks whenever you want and you are often asked if you need anything. We were wondering two things before choosing this tour : - Is the price justified - Is waking up this early justified We cannot stress enough how much the answer is a BIG YES for both. We spent the best day possible in the company of Harry and the whole staff. Thank you all once again :)

Best experience in Thailand
, Mar 2020
Wow, Jane and her team really took care of us. This was my groups favorite part of our trip to Thailand. It was truest worth waking early to be the first to step foot on bamboo island and go snorkeling. My boyfriend does not know how to swim so our guide Jane swam alongside him every moment to ensure his safety and gave him a private snorkeling lesson while teaching him about all the different varieties of fish we were lucky enough to see. 10/10 recommend to all staying on Phuket.
Phi Phi sunrise
, Feb 2020
The driver picked myself and my girlfriend up at our hotel in Patong and arrived on time. They drove us to the Marine where we had a small breakfast. The tour itself was very pleasant and the crew was super friendly, particularly the tour guide was always smiling and happy and gave us the specific locations we would visit and always made sure we had refreshments. The speed boat ride is a bit bumpy and can get wet if you go in the back. Other than that it was amazing, we went snorkeling 2 times and the places we visited were incredible. Don’t hesitate to choose this company Simba Sea, we would definitely do it again!
Great Overall Tour
, Feb 2020
After my experience, I will definitely say that a sunrise tour is the best way to visit the Phi Phi Islands. This tour was very good value for its cost. I was picked up and dropped off at my hotel. At their office, they provided us with refreshments and light snacks as we were debriefed about the tour. The speedboat was comfortable and clean. Fortunately, the weather was clear so we were able to get great shots of the sunrise. The tour includes several stops for swimming, snorkeling, picture taking, and eating. The first stop to Bamboo Island was great. We were one of the first tours to arrive and pretty much had the beach to ourselves. They served breakfast on the beach. The two snorkeling stops were good and the tour guides are very knowledgeable. The last stop was Rai Yang where we had a delicious lunch by the beach.
It’s ok

A little bit expensive for the experience they provoke you. Well organized. However it’s a little bit hurried.
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Thanks for your review. Its a shame you didn't elaborate on how and why you felt the tour was hurried. The vast majority of our customers are very satisfied with the value proposition of a small, more exclusive tour size. This directly effects our costs of running tours at low passenger numbers and is what drives our pricing. There's a fine balance between packing too many stops or not enough into a tour that is generally well received by the majority of our travellers. Some prefer to spend longer at some stops while others do not. We do take great care in making sure our tour descriptions online are accurate. Thank you for choosing us.
Amazing tour!
, Jan 2020
Loved this tour! Our guide and the crew were awesome, the boat was very comfortable, and the sights were so beautiful! The lunch buffet was also delicious. Our guide took great photos of everyone on the boat during sunrise and one of the scenic stops which was greatly appreciated.
Amazing experience for the family
, Jan 2020
Thanks Simba. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and found all the crew exceptionally professional friendly and fun. Would recommend to everyone. The time spent at each of the places was ideal and the number of places just the right amount.
