There are actually 8 itinerary choices and I chose itinerary 1 which was a full day. It was awful. The 'guide' wasn't a guide and barely spoke any English. He just drove the minibus between places. The Sanga-u Sea Gypsy Village was a tiny fishing place. We were there at about 11.30 so nothing was happening and the guide had no info to share at all. He seemed a bit puzzled about why were there at all. The rubber plantation involved almost no info at all. He cut a tree and we watched the white sap (rubber) ooze out. That was it. The mangrove long boat part was pretty chilled and nice enough. Old Town is tiny and just shops but that is hardly the tour operators fault. Lunch was a choice of two dishes and was tasty.

We had a wonderful time - the mangrove tour was very peaceful and well led by the guide, who showed us different monkeys and birds and took us to a fantastic local restaurant (best food we had in koh lanta). Very well organised - the transport arrived at the hotel on time and we finished off with coconuts and a fantastic view. Would thoroughly recommend!

This trip is ideal if you don't feel like active kayaking but want to enjoy the beautiful mangroove with a motorboat. The highlight are the sweet monkeys that come to watch on board. Furthermore, a visit to Old Town is fun because of the more unique souvenirs. And the lunch spot with a view was definitely worth a visit. Because this excursion is strangely unpopular there are probably no other participants and it can be experienced as a private excursion

This is a trip best done early in your visit to Koh Lanta. The trip shows off the entire island and will leave you with a list of places to revisit during your trip. I will say this for the tour - you have to trust the process. Booking it from here on Viator, there isn't a lot of itinerary information, so we weren't sure what to expect. We were taken from our hotel to a cute fishing village that requires an entrance fee of 20baht per person. From there, we went on a longtail boat through the mangroves, met a monkey, learned about the forest and saw a bunch of wildlife. At this point, I assumed the boat was headed to Old Town, but instead we went back to the fishing village and met up with our tour guide and her truck! She drove us all over the island, took us to a beautiful lunch at a cliffside restaurant and shopping in Old Town. Really, an amazing experience and we learned so much about the island.

We saw the important places and we got a lot of information from our guide. It was enough time to enjoy. Tour is a must-have during a stay in Koh Lanta. Many thanks to our great driver and our great guide.

Diese Tour haben wir sehr genossen. Die Abholung am Hotel funktionierte einwandfrei. Dann ging es mit dem Longboat ausführlich durch den großen Mangrovenwald. Zur Beobachtung von Schlammspringern und Krebsen wurde gut Zeit gelassen. Dass Affen auch schwimmen können, haben wir bei Fütterungen dieser Gesellen gelernt. Danach ging es zu Lanta Old Town, dem größten Ort der Insel mit einer Hauptstraße, die zum Shopping einlädt. Dafür hatten wir eine Stunde ausreichend Zeit. Weier führen wir in ein nettes kleines Restaurant mit wunderbarem Blick auf das Meer. Dort gab es ein leckeres Thai Lunch. Abschließend konnte man in einem Fischerdorf einen Rundgang machen und es gab einen Stop an einer Katschukfarm mit entsprechenden Erklärungen bevor es im "Taxi" zurück ins Hotel ging. Wir waren mit der Tour sehr zufrieden und können sie nur empfehlen.

Mangrovenwald - Tour aufm Boot, es war interessant. In der Old Town allein einstündig bummeln, aber ziemlich zu kurz. Während Bummeln in der Altstadt war Mittagszeit, es war zu heiss. Lunch oben auf dem Berg hat einen schönen Viewpoint. Fasziniert in den Ferne beobachten und fand den Affe unter dem Baum. ☺️. Eine Stunde am schönen Beach verweilen und unterm kristallklaren Wasser geschwommen. Herrlich

Ein überraschend wunderbarer Ausflugstag! Die Fahrt durch die Mangrovenwälder war entspannend und aufregend, denn ein kleines er süßer Affe kam an Bord geschwommen und wir durften ihn mit frischer Ananas füttern. Mittagessen dann auf einem tollen Berg Restaurant mit toller Aussicht. Fahrt danach noch nach Old town von Lanta mit etwas zu kurzer Zeit zum bummeln. Dann auch noch ein Ausflug zu einem tollen Sand Strand - insgesamt einer meiner tollsten organisierten Ausflüge ever! Sehr empfehlenswert und alle sehr freundlich!

Die Veranstalter waren bemüht die schönen Seiten von Mangroven-Wald und Koh LANTA zu präsentieren. Letztendlich gibt es aber noch all zu viel zu sehen. Mangroven-Wald hätte man privat genauso privat billiger buchen können. Aussichtspunkt und Restaurant waren eh auf dem Weg. Ein Strand was Welt zum Schluss besucht haben war nicht bessere/anders als alle anderen. Am Eingang von Mangroven-Gebiet hat man versucht uns weitere 20,- Baht abzuluchsen… ohne Erfolg;) Gipsy-Dorf war einfach dreckig, zugemüllt und unpräsentabel. Essen war ok, für Sonderwünsche hat man sehr hohe Preise verlangt. Im großen ganzen hätten wir in der Zeit für das Geld was besseres machen können. Auch wenn die Mitarbeiter sehr freundlich und bemüht waren.
