Backpackers Budget Private Tour (No Guide) [From Phi Phi: Package C]

Back by popular demand, our ‘Backpackers Budget’ Private Longtail Tour offers a private boat experience at a more affordable price. But do be aware, in order to keep the costs lower, there is no guide, and there is no lunch. This is a private boat hire with captain only. Explore the Phi Phi Islands on your own terms and visit the top destinations, without the need to join a group tour. You’ll have a boat to yourself, no-one exept from you and our expert local boat captain. Please be aware that our captains are not tour guides, they are highly skilled at piloting our boats, and reading the ocean, but they are unable to speak in English other than a few basic phrases. Please consider our other tour packages if you need a Guided Tour . This tour follows a fixed route around Koh Phi Phi Leh Island, which is where most of the well-known, and ‘must-see’ destinations are located. On most days we can make all the stops, but on the days Pilleh Lagoon is inacesible due to the ocean and tides. 💛

This tour visits protected areas in the Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park. There is a 400 Baht admission cost for adults, and a 200 Baht cost for children. This is not included in the tour cost and is paid directly to the National Parks Department during the tour. The rate is set by the Parks Department, not by Five Star Thailand, and it is subject to change at any time.

The Parks Department has the authority to close regions within the park, including Maya Bay, without notice or reason. In case that beach access at Maya Bay is closed during your tour you will have the opportunity to see the beach from the front instead. This is not common, but it does happen.
