Our guide came from a fishing family and came back to his roots here on Koh Lanta. With this tour he wants to give people back the experience that he had with his father every morning as a child. It is worth getting up early and experiencing this magic of the morning in the mangroves in the sunrise. We ride a gondola - everything is calm and nature is awakening. Our guide's words: The heart of Koh Lanta is nature. It is important to preserve this.

Very nice nice, private excursion along the mangroves. Wildlife as expected; to see less now. At least a large macaque family was observed. Fortunately, they are not fed on this tour! It was also really nice to visit a small farm and stay in my nice guide's home. Here, under guidance, I was allowed to prepare my papaya salad myself. Very fine!

Wi was completely wonderful! It was the most beautiful start to the day - the food was amazing and home cooked, the views were beautiful and Wi was so knowledgeable of the local area and so incredibly friendly. Such a special way to start the day. Really leisurely and relaxing. Thank you Wi!!

Our guide Sing did take us on a cool trip to the Mangroves. It was only the two of us and Sing but we had very much fun and enjoyed the unplanned private tour. Meeting the monkeys was a great experience. The lunch we got was very good.

The tour was very informative and really fun. Our guide was calm and showed us everything important, pointed out and explained. Very impressive.
