    Amazing experience with an awesome tour guide. Please be prepared for a hard hike... it’s a real short one, but 30 minutes on a very steep hill can be quite a challenge! Totally worth it!

    Amazing experience with an awesome tour guide. Please be prepared for a hard hike... it’s a real short one, but 30 minutes on a very steep hill can be quite a challenge! Totally worth it!
  • Janos 31 Dec 2018
    It is a good work out to climb up to the Nakkerd hills in the scorching heat, but the view after it is rewarding. The organizers treat the group to delicious fruits afterwards, a big plus for that! The Buddha itself is staggering, and the view over half of Phuket is amazing. Another appreciation must be given for the lunch - the most delicious food experience with a tour group by far! On the minus side, transfer is not included in the price except for Kata and Karon area.
  • Rosemarie 17 Dec 2018
    This is an awesome tour with our tour guide Ice! We started the tour from CC’s hideaway and they offer us a very nice welcome drinks. We are just 6 in the group and our tour is just a chill one. Our tour guide Ice was very helpful, informative and prepared all things we need. We even have chilled towel after our trekking! Isn’t it awesome? Actually this is a trekking with a whole lot of food trip! We just keep on eating! During lunch, our group only managed to finished 1/16 of the food they prepared as we are still full frim the fruits and drinks Ice offered to us. I highly recommend this tour and Ice as the tour guide as well 😊
  • Kathryn 17 Dec 2018
    Great experience! Had a welcoming drinks and almost unlimited fruit as our snack along the tour. We had a lot of food during our lunch and it was good. Our tour guide name is Ice (Naphin). She's very accommodating and no bored moments. I would highly recommend! Good thing also is that we just had a small group we so get all get along to each other.
  • JOSHUA 12 Dec 2018
    Nuya was fantastic. She knows everything about this beautiful place. This half day tour turned into a full day tour. The big Buddha got me very emotional at the scale of it & the work put in. But a piece of marble & help finish building it. The hike thru the jungle was very uphill and tiring bit so worth it when we all turned around. CC's hideaway was a great meeting point & Nim was an entertaining hospitable woman. Just can't fault this tour. The food at We Cafe is all organic and a mouth treat. Nuya is the best guide we've had so far. Thank you kindly.

    Friendly and knowledgeable guide with amazing views and a very nice lunch waiting at the end. Definitely bring your walking shoes. Would do it again!
  • Sandy 1 Aug 2018
    Excellent experience! Both of the guides were friendly and helpful. Lunch was unexpectedly good and delicious. Worth recommending!
  • JESSICA 25 Jun 2018
    it was overall a fulfilling and fun-filled experience. the tour began with a pickup from a punctual driver and we arrived at cc hideaway. did some stretching exercises and up the mountain trail we go, the hike itself can get steep and muddy at some instances, but overall it was still manageable. the tour guide arranged for a drive up the mountain halfway and there was a stop for fresh fruits. amazing view and the big buddha temple was a great attraction. wat chalong was the next temple we visited, and it has a long history. lunch was healthy with fresh produce like sweet potatoes, corn, morning glory served. great tour all in all.

    The guide was really friendly. But it was really hard. My sweat was too much. The rice was delicious, but it did not fit the taste of boyfriend. It's been a long time since I've been through.

    Our tour guide boy is very professional, introducing various plants and explanations in the jungle along the way, and it is suitable to experience the culture to participate in such activities.
