Well-run outfit delivering a great experience; a bit impersonal, but good value.

After reading many reviews on all the different tours to Ang Thong Marine Park. I originally emailed Samui tours. They have 2 emails addresses and i used both and not one reply did i recieve. So then I emailed Blue Star which also had excellent reviews, and they replied quickly letting me know that there were two spots left on... More

The rafting experience was great. The boat from Samui to Angthong was slow-n-steady (only very sensitive people would get seasick from the trip). Breakfast and lunch onboard were tasty, and as good as one could expect to be served on a boat in the middle of the Gulf of Siam. Lots of cold drinking water and soda (Coke, Sprite). Nice... More

Thank you for your mostly positive feedback. We are pleased that the tour itself was enjoyable. In regards to "the missing money", we have never had this problem in 20 years of operating tours. Not saying you didn't lose money somehow but I am reluctant to place the blame on my staff who have all worked for many years with... More

Arranged full day trip with transfers to and from. We were picked up at 7.30am in a clean air conditioned bus and taken to the pier to board our boat. After setting off Marcus briefed us on the day and invited us to tuck into a light breakfast. First stop was snorkelling, swimming and kayaking. Plenty of fish to see... More

We were staying in Ko Samui for 3 days and wanted to do some snorkeling and kayaking. Blue Stars had good reviews so we booked a full day trip to Au Thong Marine Park with them. Would highly recommend this outfitter. Everything was organized and run well. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel right on time.... More

This excursion good chance to get the first experience of swimming on kayaks and to see beautiful, untouched types of national park of Thailand. There is a separate wish to allocate... More

We had the most amazing day with blue stars. I was slightly put off when we got aboard the ricketty old looking boat but we truly had a fantastic day. The park it's self is absolutely stunning, I've never seen anything so beautiful. You get to kayak around the islands and see the emerald lake. The lunch provided was also... More

I went with Blue Star , the day before Songkrahn , the place was really busy . Arriving and seeing the boat I was a little concerned to be honest, last I was here and did a similar trip I went on a shinny new speed boat . We set sail and Markus gave a safety briefing in German and... More

Nice trip! Good lunch, free soft drinks, got picked up at our hotel. Much to see both snorkeling, hiking and kayaking. Loved it! They also helped us to gear up so all you needed was yourself and sunblock :)
