Graem & Melanie
Richard we’d like to thank you and the Shangani crew for a fantastic day out. When we first emailed you, we were delighted to find out that this was the largest capacity yacht available in Phuket. The planning for 50 guests to be taken out on a pre-wedding day excursion was made so easy by yourself; you responded quickly and so enthusiastically to all my emails and calls, there really wasn’t a lot for me to arrange. This pre departure communication efficiently shouldn’t be underestimated; the stress normally involved in arranging trips from overseas was non-existent, your suggested itineraries were a great help, the booking process just so easy and then you kept us regularly up to date and teased with anticipation of the day out.
The 5 minibuses you arranged whisked us away on time for the short trip to Ao Po marina, where you greeted us. There was even a ‘happy pre-wedding day’ sign for us on the side of Shangani – brilliant for photos!
The crew were fabulous; welcoming, helpful, skilled, safety conscious, they were lovely people who provided for our every need throughout the day.
Our guests had travelled a long way for our wedding and for some of them this was a once in a lifetime trip, so we wanted to spoil them with a trip out on the yacht – and you did, it was a perfect day and one that we will all remember forever (with slight alcohol haziness!). We honestly had a truly amazing fun filled day and we sincerely thank you and the crew for all your help.
We’ll definitely be back and would have no hesitation in highly recommending the Shangani to anyone.
I’ve read your other testimonials and wanted to provide some useful, unique feedback, but I don’t know what else to say: The pre-trip planning was easy as pie, the transfers were smooth as Phuket roads allow(!) and the day out surpassed all our expectations, it was awesome!
Thank you so much, Graeme & Melanie
