Private tours around Koh Samui

Tour Koh Samui are specialists in tailor-made individual itineraries for discerning travelers seeking Koh Samui authentic experiences. The flexibility of a private tour also allows you to visit unique places that normally are not on the program of any of the regular join tours.

For our guests who like to decide for themselves what places to visit, and in what order, there is the possibility to organize a private tour. The cost of a privet tour is very affordable and may end up less then a join trip based on your group size. When you hire a private vehicle with a guide and a driver, you get the chance to make your own schedule and spend as much or as little time as you please on any of Koh Samui's attractions.

We offer privet tours in two types of vehicles 4X4 off road trucks and luxury, air-conditioned minivans.

In your tailor-made individual itinerary you could visit any of Samui attractions we visit on our join tour and anything else you my be interested at. The following are few additional Koh Samui attraction that are available only on a privet tour.

Laemsor Pagoda: In the grounds of Wat Laemsor, this ornately designed Chedi (Pagoda) sits at the rocky water's edge. Covered in countless small yellow tiles, it appears golden when viewed from a short distance. It's at the far South of the island off the road between Ban Tale and Ban Pang Ka.

Butterfly Garden: Located in the south of the island, Na Tian Butterfly Garden is a kaleidoscope of color provided by hundreds of spectacular butterflies. For bug enthusiasts there's also an Insect Museum, featuring rare insects from Thailand and other countries, and a bee house, which allows the visitor to observe the activities of bees.

Samui Aquarium and Tiger Zoo: At the aquarium you can explore the diversity of fish and undersea creatures from the Gulf of Thailand. In the aquarium you will have the chance to hand-feed catfish and turtles and see many kinds of fish, including sharks, corals and other fascinating undersea creatures. The highlight of your visit to the aquarium are the bird and tiger shows. The birds on the show are from Asia, such as cockatoos and several types of parrots and local birds. The Bengal tigers and young leopards are some of the most graceful predators on earth and will perform a spectacular show for you. It is even possible to have your picture taken with one of these majestic animals.
This place can be great for young children.  However, if you are an animal lover this place may be a bit hard to handle. The aquarium and the zoo are outdated and whilst they have some interesting fish, birds and tigers there are confined to small spaces.

Paradise Park Farm: Located on Samui's highest mountain, Khao Pom, within a tropical rainforest Paradise park farm is beautifully preserved verdant forest. Developed over four years, originally as a bird zoo with hundreds of bird species including parrots, love birds, parakeets and macaws. Because the Paradise Park Farm covers a very large and unspoiled area measuring 50 Rai (20 acres), animals enjoy a comfortable life in a natural and spacious habitat. They all live in different zones around the site, connected by pleasant walking trails with resting areas to sit and enjoy nature's beauty and the spectacular views of Koh Samui and the surrounding islands

Your guide and driver will know where to find all the nicest spots on the island. Feel free to ask him about nice places that are not designated on the tourist maps! Most local people are very proud of their island and would be delighted to show you places hardly anyone ever goes to. Don't be afraid to explore the island!

The fishing boat will depart from south Samui Koh Tan Pier on the way we will pass an interesting Muslim fisherman Village of Ha Thanon. Upon boarding, our guide who speaks English will give a short briefing on weather and sea conditions, different fishing areas and techniques for the safest, most enjoyable and most fruitful fishing. They will also explain how to use the 'Big Game Fishing' gear so that you stand the best chance of catching the 'Big One'!

The captain has a lot of experience with fishing trips, therefore he will take you to the spots where the biggest fish can be caught; the locations are usually those that lie south of Koh Samui such as Wang Bay, Koh Mudsom, Koh Tan and Koh Rarb.

Once everyone is settled the tour guide will help those fishing to bait up using the live bait stored in the on board holding tanks, this includes squid which will be used when bottom fishing / line fishing to catch cobia, sailfish, snapper, grouper, gar, stingray, queen fish and many more. Your tour guide will then tell you about the array of different fish in Thailand's waters and how you can catch them.

On the trip 4 trawling gear lines will also be available for use en route from and to the pier and between fishing spots, giving you the chance to go after the really big ones such as barracuda and mackerel! At lunchtime the boat will a stop at an amazing bay in one Koh Samui nearby island.

For snorkelers, there will be plenty of time here to jump into the clear water, cool off enjoy the aquatic life present in the shallow bays of the islands. In addition to beautiful hard and soft corals, you can see a range of colorful reef fish.

The boats we use for big game fishing around Koh Samui are beautiful wooden, 12-meter boats with inboard engines. Boats have covers to protect you from the sun, comfortable benches, small cooking area, as well as toilet facilities. We use live squid for bait when bottom fishing / line fishing and catch, cobia, sailfish, snapper, grouper, gar, stingray, queen fish and many more.

With regards to alcoholic drinks we would like to suggest the following. On the day of the privet charter we will stop for you at 7/11 and where you will be able to purchase any beer or other alcoholic drink you would like. We would have on the boats plenty of ice in ice boxes that will keep your drink cold the entire day. This arrangement seams to make most of our guests very happy but I will be happy to make any other arrangement if you would like. I can also arrange to purchase the beer ahead of time for you and bring them to the boat providing you will let me know what beer you would like us to bring and how many of each.

Included in the trip are transfers to and from your hotel, the use of fishing rods, lines, trawling equipment fresh bait and lures, a lunch served on the boat and cooled drinks.
