Great start, poor ending

Picked up by A on time. A was a superb driver and our guide Toy very knowledgeable and spoke good English. We visited many beautiful beaches but sadly the tour did not stop at any of them apart from a mountain top to view the beaches from a distance. We visited the Big Budda and a wonderful collection of Temples which was the highlight of the tour. We then drove through Old Town Phuket but sadly did not have time to stop and get anything to eat or drink. We then went to a cashew nut factory where you we pestered to by nuts, we then went to aGem factory where you were pestered to buy Jewellery. Overall disappointing as great start but poor finish to the tour with too much emphasis on getting money out if the gullible tourist.

Hi Peter, Thanks for your review. We would like to extend our sincerest apologies concerning the end of the tour that you have faced. However we like to point out that you booked the morning tour which includes the gem factory and also the cashew nut factory. If you did not want to go then you don’t have to. You can choose the afternoon tour which DOES not include the Gem Factory. We have a lot of clients who want to visit the largest gem factory in the world so we also have to respect this. This is why we offer 2 options. We are not sure why you booked the option with the GEM factory. We also don’t agree “getting money from the gullible tourist” as this is not the case. Next time please book the afternoon tour without the gem factory. I hope you understand we have to cater for all clients but I Asia Thailand do give you a choice. Thanks. Nick

Don’t leave phuket without going on this tour

This was the best or we experienced on the island. Aisha Thailand were amazing. The guide was so much fun and we really enjoyed the sites around Phuket. Personally we even enjoyed the gem factory and we were not hassled by any of the staff as some of the reviews said. We were also told it’s our choice to go in or not. This tour only cost us 20 usd Which was amazing venue considering all the places the company actually took you to visit. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone visiting Phuket because taking a taxi to these places will cost you 10 times more.

Very professional and kind customer care during the whole trip. Thanks to Toy ( our guide ) and our driver we saw the highlights of the southern Phuket. One negative thing and an advice to the operator - please cut the jewelery store off the programme - there’s no added value to it.
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Hi mmisecka, Thanks for your review and your comments The Gem Factory is requested by many clients as this is the worlds largest. However we also run an afternoon tour which does not stop here so suggest you book this if you do not wish to visit here. Regards, Nick
