A Matter of Pricing
One thing you need to know about booking island tours on Koh Phi Phi is that prices can slightly vary, depending on who you are booking it with. If you are arranging it at your hotel, they will most likely quote a price that is slightly higher than the usual, as the extra cost is counted as their commission. We are talking about a commission ranging from 20-40 Baht. So if you like the management and don’t mind them getting commission off of you; then purchasing the ticket from them is no issue at all.
