Sounds to me like you are looking online. We were there in October and they were under 2000 baht per person from the street tour vendors

Not tours to Similan Islands or Khao Sok from Krabi for 1250 /1650 respectively I wouldn't think. Local prices "on the street" currently are about 1800 baht for Smilans and Koh Tachai, 2000 baht for Surin Islands and 2300-3000 baht for Khao Sok depending on whether you are including Cheow Lan Lake.

Arandora, we are in KL Easter time (high season) just wondering if we should book day trips online before we arrive or will there be plenty of availability when we are there? Thanks

Most tour offices use the same operators and prices are very competitive. Booking in advance on line is more expensive and not necessary unless you must have a certain trip on a certain date.

The 1800 baht price was for a day trip to the Sumilan Isands with Fantastic Similans at Mr.Moo's tour shop on Khao Lak Beach near Jo Seafood who also have a tour shop. Komol's Corner tour shop at the side of McDonald!s is usually very good too. Just shop around depending where you are staying.
