Less than 2 hrs for snorkeling and you waste all day with bus drive (stopping at a Pearl farm first which is actually a jewellery shop only) and boat drive. If you have snorkeled somewhere else, you will not be impressed. 17 USD, doesn't worth a penny more. I would have preferred just to go myself to Sao Beach where... More

Had a great time with this tour boat company. Picked up at Sol Beach House by our driver and guide Duc. Duc has fantastic English and was so very friendly. The boat staff couldn't have been nicer and we had a young boy off school for the day so he came along as his uncle owned the boat. They called... More

Had an OK snorkeling trip with John's Tours. To the price of 500.000VND(22 US dollars) you can't expect too much. Since it is the end of the touristseason the boat wasn't to crowded, so there wasn't any problem finding a place. First we stopped for fishing 30 minutes, and then on to two islands for snorkeling(about 1 hour each place).... More

Snorkelling is said to be one of the highlights of Phu Quoc island so we booked a tour with John's after doing our research on the Internet and subsequently seeing their promo leaflet at the Mai House Resort where we were staying. We booked a whole boat for the four of us with an agent named Toto and fixed a... More

We spent a day with them to visit couple of things in the southern part of the island. They were spot on with the schedule. The pearl farm and the "fishing" is a bit cheap and touristy, but the snorkeling is pretty nice. We also visited an extremely beautiful beach by the end of the day. It was worth it.

Its an okay trip. The lunch is included and is okay. In general the whole thing is just okay. The water is so choppy it's actually quiet dangerous!! There are life jackets to swim in if you want to. But as a very strong swimmer I struggled. Maybe it was just that day's tide. It is very reasonably priced to... More

We had full day trip with snorkling and sorry for that, it was just wasting our time. 6 hours just on the boat, pick up people from their apartments through the way and only 2 hours in the water? That is our worst experience in Vietnam. We could not recommand anybody....
