Thank you Gordon and Luck for a wonderful day , we went with a group of two families and everything was catered for from the time we stepped on board the Pitta. This is our third trip to Phuket and Gordon took us to places we could not envisage seeing without his vision and obvious care of the wonderful natural... More

We hired the Pitta for our group of 11 for the day. What a day it was, Gordon and Luck were just fabulous host. Our party was 6 adults and 5 kids and each and everyone of us enjoyed the entire day. If you are looking for something different to the speedboat tours, this is a day out that you... More

Thank you Captain Gordon for an amazing day on your boat! We had the most amazing time. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. We got to see a side of Phuket that no other tour offered. Phuket is so "touristy" and a lot of the places are very crowded, so it was nice to have a boat... More

A big thank you to Captain Gordon and Luck for an amazing day on the water! It was great having such a small group too. I almost felt sorry for the hoards of tourist we passed all lined up waiting to get on speed boats, as we peacefully headed out with our group of 8 (including Captain Gordon and Luck).... More

Captain Gordon was very helpful via email helping me work out a program and taking my budget into consideration. Going to places where there are no other tourists was a breath of fresh air..and how many people can say they have had dinner on... More

Thanks to Captain Gordon and Luck for showing us a totally different side of Phuket. We've enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the excellent food on board the "Pitta". If you want to see the less touristic side of Thailand, be sure you contact River Rovers.

We enquired with Captain Gordon on the possibility of arranging a custom trip for us, as we will be arriving on a cruise ship and therefore will only be available between 9am and 5pm. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that another party of 6 from the same cruiseliner had arranged for a trip on the same day as... More

Hi Patrica, Thank you for your lovely review, so glad you all got back to your cruise liner on time, sorry you were late getting off the boat but you still enjoyed the day, I had to change the whole trip around to make sure you saw the monkeys, the tides were no good for that bit so we did... More

Thanks to Gordon, Luck and Mick, we had a wonderful day out on Chalong Bay! We came off a cruise ship that was tendered in Kalim Bay and unfortunately the tendering process took longer than expected so we only got to the Pitta at around 10am - an hour later than expected. So poor Gordon had to re-think our whole... More
