Anyone in khao lak now or due to arrive I just want to give our experience travelling with Lora at Dior travel. As suggested by arandora on here I emailed Lora before arriving to tell her we were interested in the Phang Nga Bay tour as a private tour, 6 of us and she was quick to respond.
We have just arrived back after a superb day and Lora was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable, charming and witty, we cannot praise her highly enough.
Lora took us through the mangroves where she spotted about ten monkeys sitting watching us, we went to James Bond island which was virtually empty when she got us there and she took loads of photos of us all like our personal photographer. We then went to the canoe station for canoeing in the caves which was superb and then onto the floating village where we had lunch and she gave us a tour round telling us the history of the village and how people live there. After this we went to the reclining Buddha monkey temple and fed monkeys which was a really nice experience for us all, in the temple Lora explained the history of the temple. As an extra Lora asked would we like to go to a waterfall which we had to decline as the older ones were beginning to feel the heat. All this for 2500 baht each, well worth it. Can't recommend Lora highly enough.
