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

We enjoyed two fantastic trips with Gordon and Luck. First trip was The monkey jungle cruise where we saw the amazing Monkeys and were able to hand feed them from our canoes. We then went out along the coast to some secluded beaches away from " tourists" where we enjoyed the snorkelling and swimming off the boat. Our second trip... More

Bit of a delayed review, we went on a trip as a couple last year. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip - different from other trips we researched as it visited less touristy areas and was on a much more personal level. We loved visiting the monkeys, swimming in the sea in a quiet cove and walking along a gorgeous beach.... More

My wife and I wanted to stay away from the hoards of tourists as much as possible and get off the well-beaten path a bit. River Rovers delivered an amazing experience. We took a live-aboard tour for 2 days and 1 night cruising around Chalong Bay aboard the Pitta, and another exploring Phang Nga Bay for a day in a... More
