“Awesome Adventure”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Went for the 3 hour Phang Nga tour, which was quoted at 4,200 baht. Bargained at the counter (you should get 3,500 to 3,600 baht).

The trip was absolute fun. You get quite thorough training before hand, and guidance along the way as well. Was amazing riding through the river, up the hills, through plantations of coconuts, palm oil trees and banana trees.

The guides were absolutely great and provided us with a lot of insight on the scenery and nature, pointing out trees and what is unique about them.

Join this trip if you want ATV, nature, culture and an EXPERIENCE.

The ATV tour is not available at all tour desks (in fact, less than 20% of them had it in Karon). Be sure to book ATVphuket.com

“Best ATV tour so far”
Reviewed 8 December 2011

I've been on a few quad-bike tours in different parts of the world, but this ATV tour has been the most enjoyable. Friendly and helpful tour guides (even though their English and jokes are not so great), combined with beautiful scenery of the jungle, hills, rivers, as well as happy locals. The mix of terrain is good enough to keep any adventurer happy, from hills to creek crossings to roads to bumpy dirt trails. Just wear your swimmers and bring a camera, for when you encounter the waterfall - perfect to go for a relaxing swim.

Earlier on in the day was the white water rafting. It's a grade 3 rapids, so nothing too strenuous for the adrenalin junkies, but enough excitement to keep you guessing. What was unexpected was the masses of other tour companies operating on the river at the same time. If you like playing dodgem cars with tens of other rafts, then this tour is for you!

“The Best ATV Tour in Phuket!!”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

The Phang Nga 3 hour ATV tour with atvphuket is one of our all time favourite tours, we do this tour at least 3 times each time we visit Phuket. The tour is held off Phuket Island in Phang Nga Province, ample food, soft drinks and transfers are included in the price.

Before the tour there is a safety briefing, the bikes are checked and you are shown how to use the gears, brakes, steering etc. Then there are a few laps of riding the bikes & if you are not capable you will not be allowed to ride!

This company is very safety conscious!

The tour was just fantastic we are riding on off road trails past local farms, plantations, through the jungle and remote villages. Then we come to a huge muddy section, so much fun! Soon we come to the section we enter the river, it is all very safe & the lead guide will tell you what gear to put the bike into etc the sights are amazing; in places it got quite deep so we had to hug the bank. After quite a while of riding in the water we go back onto land and turn a corner.

It just keeps getting better, in front of us in the middle of nowhere is a beautiful waterfall. Our guides set up soft drinks, water, fruit, biscuits and chocolates for us, then everyone hits the water.

Its absolutely freezing, just perfect and so refreshing.

Little did we know that our day was going to get even better!!
We are going up to the peak of the mountain.

Most of the way up is on a cement road, we would pull over when cars or bikes were coming not that there were many, or when cows, ducks, chickens or goats would decide to cross near us.

Once at the top of the mountain its time for a drink break and time to look around and take photos of the beautiful views, I cant believe how high up we have come, its just fantastic.
Then its time to get into low speed for the descent, we leave the cement road and head back into the jungle, in the distance we can see a huge dark area which we are heading for, it’s a massive rubber tree plantation, an instant cooling effect as the sun cannot get all the way through.

After our descent we once again pass many local villages where children (and their parents) would come running out waving to us.

We did not want this tour to end but sadly after 3 hours riding around Phang Nga province we are back at the starting point. Once again plate after plate of delicious sandwiches, fruits and drinks are bought out.

I cannot recommend the 3hr Phang Nga ATV tour highly enough, it is a fun filled tour with magnificent sights along the way, the photos tell the story.

We will always take friends and family on the Phang Nga tour each time we visit Phuket.
Just make sure you book with the right company as there are a lot of atv places in Phuket & we have been with some bad ones. ATV Phuket are the best!!!
