What to expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Big Buddha Phuket, Soi Yot Sane 1, Chaofa West Road, Chalong, Phuket Town, Phuket 83100 Thailand
Big Buddha Phuket is a 45-meter-tall white marble statue visible from anywhere in the southern part of Phuket. It is probably at the top of everyone’s ‘Must-Do in Phuket‘, and for a good reason. The views from up there are breathtaking. The statue is built with people’s donation and is still under construction. If you feel like doing something to help to finish the broad base of the Buddha
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong), 70 Moo 6 Chao Fah Tawan Tok Road, Chalong, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000 Thailand

Some remains of older structures have been found, however it is unknown exactly how old they are. The large grounds of Wat Chalong that is officially named Wat Chaitararam contains a viharn, a mondop, a ubosot, a chedi containing a secret relic, a sala and a crematorium.

Stop At: Big Bee Farm, 50/6 Moo 2 Chao-Fa East Rd. Wichit Subdistrict, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000 Thailand
This place was pretty awesome. We were able to see bees working up close and some were able to lift the honey trees and have a closer look to them (handle at own risk) but was definitely an experience. They do have a store where you can buy honey and some other bee and pollen products
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Sino-Portuguese Building, V9PQ+H26, Thanon Dibuk, Tambon Talat Yai, Amphoe Mueang Phuket, Chang Wat Phuket 83000, Thailand

Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Phuket, Phuket
Phuket is well-known as a producer of delicious cashew nuts, and anyone who enjoys eating them might very much enjoy a tour of the Phuket Cashew Nut Factory. This is definately one of the most unique Phuket attractions. Although one might not think so, the process of taking cashews from raw to ready-to-eat is quite a production, with a great many steps involved. At the factory, guests will learn how cashews are made and things like how to tell the difference between high quality and low quality cashews

Our hotel was just north of Phuket airport so a bit out of the way, meaning we had to pay a little extra for pickup which was fine. Our driver was early (before 11:30 for the 13:00 tour), but hey, with most tours you end up waiting so this was a good start. After 2.5 hours in the van, picking up people from hotels, dropping some off again at other places (5 stops total) the tour hadn’t even started! The tour guide got on board (we had to ask if he was the tour guide, because he didn’t have us any clue until about another half an hour later when we finally made our way to the first stop. The guy named himself James (Bond) and was useless as a tour guide. He was laying low in the passenger seat and upon approaching each stop he would hold op a pocket size folder with stamp-size pictures of what we were going to visit (none of the group could make out what he was saying, let alone see the tiny picture). That was all he did... while disappearing at soms stops to get back on at another. So this could be bad luck on still a great tour but it wasn’t. It seems a good deal at first. It is relatively cheap and it states all entrance fees of the attractions are included. That is correct, because they’re all free. It says you get a bottle of water. Also correct, although you don’t get until hours into the tour. After 2.5 hrs, James Bond suggested we got out of the van during the pickup of other guests to buy ourselves some water, and we did. We had just about finished those by the time he came up with small water bottles. Almost every stop of the tour is a tourist trap. The cashew nut factory (we had 10 minutes to spend there, no information given at all), the bee farm, even the “coffee break” were nothing more than attempts to get us to buy nuts, honey and jewelry. The good news: if you look at what we payed by the hour we had an excellent deal. The tour is to last for 5 hours. We left our hotel at 11:30 and were back by 21:30. While our hotel was a bit further from Phuket Central, allow 1 hour each way, that still means a heck of a long day. Especially considered that every stop was much shorter than advertised, with no info whatsoever just “go out” and “get back”. TripAdvisor should really reconsider recommending tours like this without proper checks, and we really wonder how this tour company could get so many positive reviews while performing so poorly. Phuket Shanti Travel scored below par. Way below par. Will opt for more expensive options through GetYourGuide or elsewhere next time.
The tour was good value for the money, however it should have more information shared, better english speaking and pronunciation. The guide was fun but to rate 5 stars I would need have all mentioned things better.The tour was good value for the money, however it should have more information shared, better english speaking and pronunciation.

I could not agree more with a below review: 'with all the 4 and 5 bullet ratings and being recommended by TripAdvisor as a bestseller, we thought we couldn’t go wrong with this tour'. We chose to do the morning tour, we received a message at 2.30pm the day before the tour with our pick up time (...I could not agree more with a below review: 'with all the 4 and 5 bullet ratings and being recommended by TripAdvisor as a bestseller, we thought we couldn’t go wrong with this tour'. We chose to do the morning tour, we received a message at 2.30pm the day before the tour with our pick up time (very short notice). However they were still 20mins late to pick us up. Our tour guides name was Eve and I must admit she was absolutely lovely. Although she sat in the passenger seat using her phone (Facebook etc) for majority of the travels instead of guiding us, explaining where we were or pointing out landmarks. Once the driver had finished picking up passengers, Eve told us what the itinerary was going to be for the day. Which was very different to the one on TripAdvisor. We made our first stop, which was a viewpoint that wasn't listed on TripAdvisor, we thought 'this is great, we're getting more than we paid for' and quickly moved along to the next stop - Kata beach view point, where we only had 20mins instead of 30. We were then VERY disappointed with the next stop as we had absolute no idea that we would be stopping to look at a baby elephant, chained up by is neck and it's foot in a 1.5sm area. Viewing or supporting the mistreatment of animals in Thailand is something we wanted to avoid on our holiday and I was so disappointed when we stopped here. The next three stops were Promthep Cape (not listed on TripAdvisor) Chaithararam Temple and Big Buddha. We again, only had roughly 20mins instead of 30 at each stop and we all felt very rushed because Eve was worried that she would be late for her next job at 1pm. Yet the driver and Eve still found the time to stop and buy themselves lunch between our destinations. I agree with the review below, it states all entrance fees of the attractions are included and that is correct, because they’re all free anyway. It says you get a bottle of water which is also correct, although it's a very small bottle and you don’t get until 3hrs hours into the tour. . The next three stops of the tour are a tourist trap. The cashew nut factory, where we only had 10 and it was only to buy cashews. The bee farm, where you see no bee's but only honey to buy and also only had 10mins and worst of all was the “coffee break” where you are taken to a large shopping facility and almost forced to buy very expensive jewellery, tea or souvenirs (walking through this was horrible and I've never felt so uncomfortable in my life) funnily enough we were told that we would have 30-45mins here and I never even got my coffee or a break. From here we went to Phuket Old Town to see the Sino-Portuguese and here we actually did receive some very interesting information about the history of Phuket. But we asked to end our tour here as I didn't not want to waste any more time travelling in this van. My suggestion, find a private driver and tell him which stops you want to got to for the same price!!
Love the idea for the tour because it covers most places near Phuket town. If you only have limited time this half day tour will definitely worth it.Love the idea for the tour because it covers most places near Phuket town. If you only have limited time this half day tour will definitely worth it.
