Customer Feedback

Where the sun shines through the rain
Then the rainbow takes us high
And we dive under the sea
Sail along with us
Dive with friendly touch
You will feel as free as a dream can be
Your heart will fly on the purple sky
And your smile's waved by the sea

Finally fulfilling a lifetime's ambition to go diving, I decided to sign up for  Adam's PADI Open Water course. It has come up to and exceeded my expectations and I am sure I will be hooked for life. Adam's instruction was clear, professional and friendly and I felt complete confidence in him throughout. His very honest advance warning about the changeable nature of October weather was appreciated, though as it turned out while I was there the weather was no problem, and perfectly warm. The dives we went on at the end of the course were unforgettable and I recommend Rainbow Scuba to anyone thinking of giving diving a try. David. October 2012

I just wanted to write really quickly to let you know that I had a great time learnng to dive last weekend.  Frank was a great teacher.  Professional, knowledgeable, relaxed, fun.  It was a pleasure being taught by him.  He's a credit to Rainbow Scuba. Steve, London, June 2012

Mit Rainbow-Scuba & Tour geht es dagegen zum Schnorcheln oder Tauchen. In einem traditionellen Longboat bringt der gebürtige Engländer Adam Preston seine Gäste hinaus zu kleinen Inseln, vor denen man die bunte Unterwasserwelt beobachten kann oder einfach an einem menschenleeren Strand in der Sonne döst. Der erfahrene Taucher organisiert auch Ausflüge eines der schönsten Tauchreviere zu bieten hat. Wer Glück hat, kann unter Wasser bis zu 40 Meter weit sehen und dort Walhaien, Schildkröten, Mantas und einer Vielzahl anderer Fische begegnen

A wonderful gay destination quite simply there is so much to do.   With waters so clear trying scuba diving is a must.  Rainbow Tours offers gay run dive packages for the novice to the dive leader.   We had a fabulous day out and were rewarded with a whole host of wonderfully colored fish. Huge coral reefs and a wonderfully warm sea. James & Luke, UK, June 2011

Hallo Frank, danke für die tolle Insel-Tour die du mit uns gemacht hast. Wir haben den Tag mit dir sehr genossen und vieles gesehen was wir auf eigene Faust nicht erlebt hätten. Es war wirklich sehr angenehm mit dir unterwegs zu sein nicht zuletzt wegen deiner netten und sehr persönlichen Art. Vielen Dank für alles und euch weiterhin viel Erfolg. Liebe Grüsse von Michael und Fedor aus Frankfurt am Main

Just wanted to send a quick thank you email for a great day out. Denis and I both had a fantastic time and really appreciate you showing us some beautiful sights and for the great snorkeling.  Hopefully in the future we will be able to do another of your tours and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to any friends I hear that are traveling your way. Wil & Denis, Sydney, April 2011

I came unsure if scuba diving would be the right thing for me (snorkeling now 30 years and have seen places and fish even a diver would die for). But then I met Adam - his very personal style, British friendliness combined with European professionalism and Thai easy-style was the perfect mix for me. And now I am a diver and I love it! Thank you Adam for every minute on our trips and especially for convicing me to stay the night on the boat. Our early morning dive was the best of all! I will never forget the school of squids.  Eric, Berlin, March 2011

On behalf of Neil and I, we'd like to say a big thank you for organising our dive trips and being such a good teacher and guide. You helped make our holiday truly memorable. We can't wait for another opportunity to return and dive again and in the meantime, we'll have no hesitation in recommending you to any of our friends that may be heading to your part of the word. Neil and JP, London, Feb 2011

I am truly grateful I chose Rainbow Scuba and Tours and had the opportunity to experience my vacation time seeing such a variety of the wonders with your wonderful personal guidance. Again many many thanks...
Winston, New York, USA, Jan 2011

It was indeed a pleasure to be certified under your supervision. If not for your patience and gentleness, I may never “see the world with new eyes” as far a scuba diving is concern.
Gerard, Singapore, Feb 2011

Thank you too for making my diving fun and relax. You are a great instructor. I wish I can be like you someday, diving with new friends and enjoy the beauty of the nature at the same time. Take good care.
Sean, Malaysia, Nov 2010

Thanks for the pictures and the wonderful day tour around the island. I enjoyed myself and my presence in your company. You do a great job at what you do and your easy going attitude is comfortable for me to be around.
Jack, USA, March 2010

Thank you so very much for giving Tony and I such a wonderful time. You really helped to make our holiday enjoyable and special. You treated us like friends and not customers - really, really kind. Thank you. Derek & Tony, Tawian Feb 2010

Warmest regards from sunny Singapore. Just writing to say thanks for showing us the beaches and snorkelling spots. We had a wonderful day and we are certainly missing that part of the trip. Tony and Jack, Singapore, Jan 2009

I want to thank you so much for your hospitality and caring during this first trip away. From the first minutes I landed, till the last night. I could not have expected better. Alain, France/China, October 2008

We really enjoyed the trip with Adam. Opting for a private tour instead of one of the hotel tours, was the best thing we could have done. We drove around the island, taking in the scenery and being able to stop where and when we liked. It was indeed a great experience. Dan and Jakes, Taiwan, Feb 2008

It was not only the great diving experience that made me feel happy but also the time we spent together with sightseeing, the night show and the nightclub and last but not least on Koh Tao and on the boats. Danny, Hamburg, Jan 2008

Wer als Anfdnger im Urlaub das Tauchen lernen mvchte, gerdt meist in den Massenbetrieb der gro_en Tauchschulen. Ich hatte das Gl|ck, auf das Angebot von Adam aufmerksam zu werden und hatte in ihm einen "personal trainer". Der Luxus gipfelte darin, auf Ko Tao (|brigens viel schvner als Samui) das Tauchboot mit niemandem teilen zu m|ssen... Adam vermittelt mit Nachsicht und auch gebotener Strenge solide Tauchkenntnisse; der open water diver wird also - trotz Familienanschluss - nicht einfach hergeschenkt. Empfehlenswert.
Jochen, Berlin, March 2007

I wanted to say a very big thank you for the wonderful experiences I had during the time I spent on Samui. For the time and effort you put into making my whole stay very happy and worthwhile. Graeme, France, Feb 2007

Lieber Adam, Danke fuer ein tolles Taucherlebnis. Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefuehlt ;-)) was will man(n) mehr... gruss
Juergen Krappen, Germany, Jan 2007

Thank you so much for the great moments you let us experience under the sea and also around your island. We will tell all our friends what a wonderful time we had. Fabrice and Florien, Paris, Nov 2006

I don't know if Adam considers himself to be a tour guide, but I hope not. That would undersell him. He is your local friend; he really does know the place and goes out of his way to make sure your trip is fun. Mike Boxall, London, Oct 2006

Again many thanks for the beautiful time in Samui. Alfred and I enjoyed our stay a lot. You are very empathic while teaching people diving. Thanks to your patience, you opened me a new window in an astonishing world. A perfect organized trip. Alfred & Uli, Shanghai, August 2006

Adam is an excellent guide and host. He knows Samui well and introduced me to the easy-going and welcoming gay scene. I met some really great people. Even though I was only there for a few days he put together several interesting and fun activities for me and I had a great time. Floyd, New York, October 2005

Thanks for such an amazing experience. I loved having you as an instructor (so much fun!!!). I think it's amazing as gay men that we can enjoy the great outdoors together and experience new and exciting things. Dearrick Knupp, New York, USA, Sept 2005

Enjoyed meeting you and thank you for sharing your time with me. The cycling was ace and really enjoyed it, a great way to explore the hidden beauty of the island.  Dave, Manchester, England, July 2005

Adam showed me the necessary theory and skill in a relax environment, which made the learning fun. Adam's personality: relax, thoughtful, caring, and confident, made my diving learning/experience so easy and fun.
Arif Hasyim, October 2003 & July 2005

Adam's forte is his ability in facilitating contact between divers in the group. One will not feel awkward or left alone in the group as Adam will constantly make sure that everyone is enjoying their time, discovery, and experience.
Richard and Francis, Montreal, Canada, March 2005

The personal service created a truly memorable experience that I will cherish for years to come.  Paul, Sydney, Australia , July 2005

A Fabulous day! Thanks for your help. Will will be sure to recommend to our friends Herbert and Jason, Australia, July 2005

It was just sheer magic of a wet dream of totally new kind. I have snorkeled in the Great Barrier Reef, and the Japanese Gardens in Koh Tao where we did our first dive compare with the best. Anton, Melbourne, Australia May 2004 & June 2005.

It was a delight to dive with Rainbow Scuba. They know the best sites, the best boats and I do not know what we would have done without them. Nothing was to much trouble and the service did not end when the diving stopped. Kevin and A, August, 2005

Diving with Rainbow Scuba on Samui means to enjoy life in a completely different world built by the wonderful scenery of the Islands of course, but the more by the fantastic people paying the important role in my dream.
Harald, Munich, Germany June, 2004

As a gay couple and two first time divers we were VERY pleased with Adam in every way! His professionalism, his natural ability as a trainer, his appreciation of nature and preservation of the environment, and his knowledge!  Robert and Cyril, Amiens, France, August, 2004

I highly appreciate Adam's effort to initiate an outdoor activities. As a gay person who likes outdoor sport, I found it quite difficult to meet or know people in gay community who shared the same passion. Adam is a professional who has dreams and is capable to make them come true. Joe-Joe, November 2004

I was looking for a place where I could re certify my Rescue Diver First Aid without having to worry about other trainees opinions about homosexuality. Adam was quite willing to do one-on-one First Aid certification course with me. Darrel, China, August 2004

As a person who needs to be discreet at home, it was such a nice experience to learn scuba diving in a gay friendly environment, and under the guidance of a caring gay instructor. I really loved the experience. P, Hong Kong, January 2004

I have so many good memories about the diving course, it is difficult to pick out just a few. I appreciated very much our nice dinners together. The time we spent in the swimming pool was great. Just the feeling of being weightless in the water was amazing. Jens-Ole, Roma, Italy, June 2004

Adam was very encouraging and organised. He is the most patient instructor, and also made our trip extremely entertaining. It was nice for me and my friends to feel comfortable being ourselves during the trip. Shane Vey, Canada, December 2003
