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

Enjoyable and easy paced day on the water. Definetly suitable for or families or those wanting to get away from the large tourist groups. All the food for the day was prepared on board by Luck & was plentiful and delicious. Do take your own snorkel gear if you have it as the gear on board is not very good... More

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
