Right from the start of booking this tour to the end the customer service experience was exceptional. Our tour guide Dai was amazing and as an added bonus it was just myself and my partner on the tour. The places for the tastings are all their own unique experience so don’t go

It's wonderful to receive your review and thanks so much for taking the time to make some great points about this tour. Yes, our drinks tasting tour is more than just sampling the different local beverages, its a day out meeting different and local people who make their livelihood partnering with Island Gems and I feel very privileged for that. Thank you for supporting the lively community of Samui and come back soon. Regards, Megan Island Gem Tours

I don't write reviews unless the experience was exceptionally good or really bad. This tour lands squarely in the first category. The tour design, the execution of our program, and our guide, Megan, were outstanding. No doubt it helped to have interesting and engaging members

Thanks so much for your review and it was a wonderful day spent meeting you both. I was really pleased that you mentioned the tour design as we spent many months developing partnerships with the local business owners to ensure the tour was well paced and showcased some really unique places here on Samui. Hope to see you back one day maybe on one of our other tours:) Cheers Megan

Right from the start Megan was great to deal with and we booked easily over the internet. Megan and her driver picked us up from our Hotel right on time. The van was large and very very tidy. He was a great driver. What a day it was! Megan was so great to meet and her

What a great review thank you so much and it was also great to meet you and your lovely family. I always believe that even though our guests love our tours it really comes down to the lovely people like yourselves who spend the day with us. It's great that you have taken the time to describe our Drinks Tasting tour, which is the only one on the Island and it's a wonderful way to meet the locals and see how people live and work here on Samui.... as well as being a fun day out. We would love to see you back here soon on our beautiful island Samui. Cheers Megan Island Gem Tours

To start, Megan is an absolutely lovely lady and we had the best time getting to know her throughout the tour. We enjoyed the first stop with rum the most throughout the tour as we would not have known to go to that spot on our own. It was a really fun vibe and a great way to

Thank you for you review and its always great to get feedback from our guests. To give other people who may review your feedback some more information we have been told is really helpful, so just to add to your comments. When travelling to other countries so unlike your own, its a great way to learn about the people, culture and practices to try new things. Thai wines are very different from the much more mature wine countries like Europe, US, Australia and New Zealand etc, however the unique and lovely thing about the wines is that they are made from the fruits of Thailand, Mangosteen, Mango, Coconut, Lychee, and Passionfruit, I believe they are the only wines in the world that are made from these fruits...but may not be to everyone's taste its wonderful to give it a try. Also to ensure people do not get the wrong information, our cocktail making is just that, you pick a cocktail of your choice from a large variety offered, and then get behind the bar to make it yourself, with the help of the bar staff. It is not, nor is it advertised, as a cocktail lesson, just to have some fun while your gourmet lunch is being prepared for you. I was sorry to hear that you were exhausted at the end of your tour and I do hope that you had a good rest and wonderful stay on Samui before continuing on with your first trip to Asia. Kind regards, Megan

Megan picked us up from our resort and off we zoomed in her car. This is the first tour where it was just my friend and myself and we had the most amazing time. In between the laughter we had rum that put hairs on your chest, amazing wine and delicious beer. The cocktail making

Thank you so much for your lovely review, and yes it was a lovely day with you ladies. I am so pleased that you both had a great experience and enjoyed this small group tour, as you found we still go out even if only two people!
