The hike was awesome, the area absolutely stuningly beautiful. The tour guide is great and I will recommend her for any tourist. Loved the cultural and natural explanations and history. The Big Buddha was beautiful and, as a lover of all things religion, I enjoyed every moment we spent there

It was a great and delightful tour with a clever dog called MIa.
Everything was well arranged including lunch and sightseeing.
I definitely recommend this tour those who want to take a look around Big Budda and the temple.
I would like to take 4 ways water tour someday with the guides.
Thank you for Ice and Nim.

Great trek, but its a lot harder than I expected, we did the 2km straight up trek, im a moderately fit 50 year old and found it hard work at times but saying that we had a 73 year old guy who got up but just took a bit longer. Once you are at the top of the trek its pretty easy from then on, theres also a pit stop at the top at a local cafe which was welcome.
Lunch was back at the hotel where we started and was amazing I hadnt expected it to be so good.
You are given water but id recommend taking extra with you.

This was absolutely BRILLIANT! Would recommend to anyone travelling to Phuket. Our guide Ice was friendly, and informative. She took us on a nice walk up to the Big Buddha where we could walk up at our own pace. When we got to our first stop, we had a lovely view of the ocean with fresh coconuts and fruits as refreshments. We were given adequate time to explore the Big Buddha before heading to the temple which was beautiful. Lunch at CC's Hideaway was fresh and some of the best food I've had while traveling around Asia. AMAZING!

Great tour! Beautiful views with the reward of a short but rigorous hike. Our tour guide Ice was very friendly and knowledgeable.

This was an amazing trip, made all the better with a brilliant guide Nuya and her dog.From the moment we were picked up from our hotel and did the rounds picking up the other travellers, to arriving at the departure point where we first me Nuya, we felt comfortable and confident that we were going to have a good day.

Although for January it was a very hot day with the humidity also quite high we were still looking forward to the trek. We were provided with additional water and briefed on the level of difficulty with an explanation that anyone who felt a bit wary of the climb could be driven by road to the next rendezvous point.

The group consisted of myself and my wife from the UK, an Israeli lady, a South African couple, a Canadian, and 4 Americans two of whom opted for the transport.

We were put through a little session to limber up ankles and knees etc, and set off up a very steep bit of road in about 32 degrees before turning onto what can best be described as a very steep path. It might only be about 2k but it felt like 10 in the heat with the little dog leading the way to sniff out snakes in the undergrowth.

With some puffing and panting mainly because myself and Maria decided on a blistering pace up the hill leaving everyone else to catch up we arrived at the rest station fro refreshment and plenty of coconut milk and fruit, before completing the steep climb up the road to the Big Buddha.

We had plenty of time to look around and see the monkeys and both Buddha's before driving off to the restaurant for a very nice meal with plenty of choice. Then driven back to our respective hotels. An amazing trip and well worth the effort. Would highly recommend this trek.

excellente excursion avec une guide et un chauffeur très à l'écoute et très gentilles. Un trek de 5 km sans difficulté particulière à part la chaleur, des petits arrêts pour avoir des explications sur la flore. Un arrêt dans un café avec terrasse en plein air surplombant la mer juste avant Bid Buddha. durant cette pause, la guide nous a fait dégusté tout un tas de fruits locaux, jus de coco etc.
Après la visite de Big Buddha, visite du temple de Chalong en redescendant en voiture, petits snacks achetés par la guide beignets de bananes et de patates douces. Après la visite, arrêt dans un restaurant bio très joli et très bon. Tout cela inclus.

This was such a fun trek up the mountain to see the big Buddha! Our guide was incredibly friendly and kept everyone's spirits up throughout the long and hot hike. We had frequent stops, beautiful scenes along the way, and overall it was a fantastic day.

Highly recommend - but do keep in mind that it is a hike! Wear light and comfortable clothes and good athletic shoes.

Only issues: The little cafe we stopped at for a drink had clearly mistreated animals chained up outside. I realize it's a different culture, but it made a lot of us in the group feel very uncomfortable. For our lunch we were really disappointed that it was western food. We're in Thailand...expected to be shown some good Thai food.
