We wanted to start our holiday with a tour of Phuket so we could find our feet and help work out things like transport, food, other worthwhile activities. Phon, our guide, was able to answer all our questions and more. She was extremely professional, friendly and informative.
The tour was explained to us at the start and we were told we did not have to go to the gem factory. We were happy enough to go to the cashew factory and did not regret t the experience as we were given many samples and bought a number of snacks.
The visits to the lookout were very pretty and gave us some great photos.
A highlight for us was the visits to the temples and Phon encouraged us to get a blessing from a monk while she took some photos. This was an amazing cultural experience for us. Something we won't forget. Phon explained all the intricacies off the different types of rituals and blessings. She also led is through another Thai ritual where flowers are laid and incense lit and gold leaf was placed on statues. It was all very fascinating and without Phon we would have only been spectators. Being a part of the experience was truly amazing. My oldest daughter gets quite anxious with new experiences and I was surprised at how trusting she was with Phon and how she was willing to give these amazing opportunities a go. It really gave her confidence to try new things through out the holiday.
Thank you Phon.
