Private Phi Phi tour

Phuket to Phi Phi tour with private guide and long tail boat

Updated Sep 2017

  • Ideal for small groups (max 6) who want the flexibility of a private tour without the expense of chartering a big speedboat.
  • The cheapest way to have a private tour to Phi Phi.
  • Not just the most popular areas but the hidden coves too.
  • Option to finish in Phi Phi.

If you are staying in Phuket and want to do a day trip to Phi Phi there are lots of join in tours available (this is our favourite).

If you don’t want to go on a tour with so many other people you could consider chartering a speedboat. That’ll cost you about 40,000 baht which is fine if you are a group of 20 or more but a bit pricey if you are a group of 3 or 4.

So we have created our Private Phi Phi Tour:

Phi Phi longtail



7.30-8.00: We pick you up at your Phuket hotel and transfer by AC minivan to Rassada port. This is a private transfer just for you (and your guide), no stopping along the way to pick up other guests.

8.30-10.30: You join the ferry to Phi Phi. Relax on board for the crossing which takes just under 2 hours. You can sit in the AC saloon or on the sun deck. Refreshments are available. We use the Jet Cruiser 9 fast ferry which has a premium lounge with comfy seating and a big sundeck. It’s a much more comfortable journey than a bouncy speedboat. It’s less cramped, you can walk around, chat with each other, and there’s a toilet.

10.30-14.30: The ferry arrives at the pier in Phi Phi Ton Sai bay at 10.30 am. Your long tail boat driver will be waiting for you. The ferry will depart back to Phuket at 2.30 pm so you have 4 hours to enjoy Phi Phi by long tail boat. That’s plenty of time to head over to Phi Phi Ley and see Maya bay, Piley Cove, Palong wall, Loh Samah Bay etc etc.

You decide how much time you spend snorkeling and how much time you spend on the beach.

Your guide will have everything you need for the day including snorkeling equipment, towels and a packed lunch. You just need swimwear and your camera.

14.30: Depart Phi Phi for return to Phuket.

16.30: Arrive Phuket Rassada Pier and transfer back to your hotel.  You’ll arrive back at your hotel at about 17.00-17.30.



Price: 12,600 baht for 2 people. Add 3,400 baht for each extra adult. 1,900 baht per child (4-11 years)

Maximum of 6 people
