I was influenced by another TripAdvisor writer who said a few reviews below that he took the trip just for him and his wife and I really appreciate it... Even though it is not the cheapest way, you don't go to Phuket that often, and being on our own with the magnificent crew of Gordon, Luck, M, and Peter (a... More

What an amazing day, the crew were so helpful and friendly and we got to go to a private island and enjoy the beauty of Phuket. They went over the top to fill all the requests we had asked. Can't wait to book another trip again. Highly recommended

my party of 8 was in Phuket for 1 day off cruise ship Sapphire Princess. I can highly recommend River Rovers long tail boat cruise. Gordon and his wife Luk were fabulous hosts and we spent a fantastic day away from the tourists swimming, eating and enjoying the fabulous scenery. Just Do it!! Great value, great experience with REALLY nice... More

There are a lot of boat tours available on Phuket. Usually these are speedboats to Phi Phi Island in which 40+ people are packed into a boat with two or three high powered outboards, and the “cowboy” captains race at full speed. They issue everyone a lifejacket and a barf bag because invariably someone gets sick and it starts a... More

Found this company by chance and it ended up being just what we were looking for. We did the Monkey trip, which consisted of feeding some monkeys while in a kayak and afterwards visiting a few small beaches on some small islands. The reason you will want to go on this boat is that you will be away from the... More

We went on the money jungle cruise with Gordon & Luck This is one of the nicest trips you could take in Phuket. First to visit the monkeys in the mangroves then out to sea for sightseeing & snorkel. We visited deserted beaches & used the on board kayaks. Food all cooked freshly on board by Luck - best food... More

This trip is definitely an original concept - tell Gordon what you want to see/do and he makes it happen! It was exactly what we wanted - beaches, hidden gems, and go where no one else does. We swam on beaches where not 1 other person was there, ate amazing Thai food that was prepared just for us, and got... More

A great day out off the beaten track. If you look for something different and want to avoid the tourist crowds, then River Rovers is a great choice. We opted for the monkey jungle tour. It was great feeding the wild monkeys and cruising up the river seeing local life was really interesting. The food served onboard was excellent throughout.... More

After visiting Thailand a few times and travelling all over Thailand about 15 years ago I really wanted to show my family a less commercial side of Thailand. I researched loads of different trips and none really seemed able to cater for what we wanted. I just wanted my little boy to see how amazing Thailand is and not be... More
