Boat trip help please?

Hello, we are in Khao Lak at the moment staying at the La Flora, love it, and want to book a day trip to James Bond Island. The price at the hotel is a bit steep, will we get just as good a trip outside at a lesser price & if so where please?

Prices for tours tend to be higher when booked through most hotels.

Generally, you should get the same or as good a tour at a lesser price when you book through an agent outside the hotel. Often the tours are through the same company the hotel is offering.

Try Lora at Dior travel who is situated on the road that runs from the highway to the beach. Opposite the Bella plaza. Lora is well recommended on this forum.

Otherwise you will have noticed plenty of tour desks as you walk around Bang Niang.

Don't be afraid to negotiate the price below the brochure price.

+1 for Lora whom I regularly recommend but have no interest in other than as a very good friend and excellent guide.

We used lora from Dior last week for a trip to James Bond island and the floating village. We booked a private tour just the two of us in the long tail boat with lora and the guy steering the boat. It was amazing and lora is a lovely person and really entertaining. We will definitely use her again.
