Try this driver we have just returned and found him his name is Franco speaks good english and we found his prices very good. He's friendly and a good driver, at no time did he try to rush us, took us to where we wanted to go.

As my hubby is blind we don't do many tours Franco took us on a day tour but we wanted to go to Khao Lak for a look, he also too us on a afternoon tour to Krabi town and the shopping center Telsco. We have gone on the 3 island tour in 2009 and that was great, your children should enjoy the snorkelling etc. Do a check on TA on things to do and it will give you an idea also I'm sure Franco can give you ideas. We also found Franco cheaper on transfers from Phuket airport, for a van he's 2300 bht instead of 2500bht that everyone else charges.

Hi. I was thinking of the exact same question about a driver in Krabi as we go in a month. What prices would we expect for a day trip or half day trip?

There will also be 2 families travelling together (4 adults 5 kids altogether) so was wondering if there is another driver we can get, or perhaps he can suggest someone?

Thanks!

Topendgirl Franco has a 9 seater van with a extra seat next to driver I think you will find he charges by the van not per person. We paid 3500bht for a day tour to Khao Lak took 8hrs and 1000bht for an afternoon shopping tour we were gone 3 hours but at no time did Franco put a time on it I just told him where I wanted to go to Krabi town and then to Tesco's. The taxis charge 500ht each way to Krabi and don't stop with you. I can only say how we found Franco he was very freindly and informative Beryl
