Has anyone used Boss for day trip, does the driver speak English and how much would it be for the day travelling around the Takua Pa area and also Phang Ng Bay.
Boss speaks excellent English and his drivers very good too. Contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for a quote. He will respond very quickly or when in Khao Lak go down and see him at his "office" - on the main highway walking south from the Nang Thong Supermarket in Bang La On next to the Ruen Mai Restaurant.
We have used Boss for a number of trips over several years. Drivers have always had good english and Boss sometimes comes along as a personal tour guide.
Haven't been to Takua Pa with Boss, but have read where others have and found the trip to be good value. We have been to Phang Nga. Boss designed the day so we paid for what we used. There were 6 adults, from memory the bus and longtail boat cost 650 baht each, then we paid as we went for lunch, sea cave canoeing and other entrence fees.
If you send Boss an e-mail he will reply with various options.
Does anyone know a general list of day trips Boss offers? Does he offer non-water based day trips as well?
The only trips as far as I know that includes a water based element is upto Cheow Lan Lake in Khao Sok National Park where he organises a longtail boat out on the Lake and lunch at a floating rafthouse or perhaps a canoe trip on the river or down to Phang Nga Bay. He is essentially a Taxi Service with a growing number of vehicles and who offers basically a car with driver to take you on trips you want to do or he may suggest. He is not a tour operator as such. He will take you on a day or half day tour in and around Khao Lak and a day trip to Phuket. He will personalise tours to your taste or specification.
Hope this helps.
