My friends and I decided on trying the Plankton Tour and it was great. We got to do a lot of snorkeling and seeing different sights around Ko Phi Phi Leh. The guides were not super professional but they got the job done. Ending the 5 hour tour with swimming with Plankton was definitely worth it.

Their website advertises a night plankton tour. Which we booked. The morning of the tour, I got an email with instructions to get on the "Orange Sunset Tour boat and tell them you booked through spider monkey" When we got there, they knew nothing about us booking through spider monkey and there was a bunch of confusion. After pulling away... More

Not being climbers, our family of 5 did the Night Plankton boat tour with Spidermonkey. We had an amazing time. The sights were amazingly beautiful and our guide Whitney was awesome. What a great way to spend 5 hours in the Phi Phi Islands.

The views are fantastic, and climbing is always fun, But Spidermonkey didn't live up to its reviews. The directions they provided us were wrong, which made us over 30 minutes late. No big deal. But the guide took the company's mistake out on us by acting rude, telling us "don't talk ok" when we asked a question, and generally giving... More

A friend and i were in the south for climbing for a month last year (i finally go around to downloading this app). We decided to deep water solo on phi phi. We talked to one guide service that was cheaper than Spider Monkey but they ran a lot of different tours and the guides could not answer basic climbing... More

If you're at all interested in climbing, you have to deep water solo with Spidermonkey Climbing. Very knowledgeable guide with reliable gear. Safety focused, and fantastic customer service. May be the highlight of the entire trip. Hard to beat free soloing 20 meters and peeling off into the water at the top. So much fun.

Took my daughter climbing here. Was a little worried that she was too young (she's 10 years old) but she did better than I did! It was enough adventure for us both! Great safety procedures, we were always well cared for and fabulous instruction. Thanks!

I had learned after going through some hoops to find the right Spider Monkey that there is a look a like company that has taken on the good name that Book has created and is trying to capitalize on the Climbing Guide business. I'm a decently experienced climber who climbs in Cali and I found that Book was very on... More

My instructor, Book, was really helpful and motivational as I really struggled doing it. It was a one-on-one session as nobody else had booked onto it meaning I could take it as quickly or as slowly as I liked. He was a wonderful guy! Eventually, despite all his motivational talk, I did give up anyway. I'd tried it, done two... More

I was looking forward to climb on Koh Phi Phi but this shop managed to waste three of my days on the island including enormous disappointment and no climbing after all- since you really should choose your climbing company wisely I chose spider monkey climbing- however on the first visit I forgot my passport which is needed for the insurance...
