My wife and I did the monkey jungle cruise and had a fantastic time. Gordon and the crew gave us full control over how long we'd spend at each location, and we had a relaxing day filled with fun activities and lots of food and snacks.

My group of 7 (3 adults and 4 children 9-13 years) had a spare half day in Phuket before flying out. None of the mass tours fitted our schedule. River Rovers was able to customise a tour to meet our schedule, budget and requirements. We fed monkeys, kayaked and snorkeled. Food, snacks and drinks (including beer!) were all included. Everything... More

Phang Na is simply stunning and to experience it on a private long tail boat with such knowledgeable and nice guides is really special. The booking process with Gordon is really easy and the tour was stunning and chilled out. The crew have the perfect balance of being helpful and informative but also unobtrusive. We got to see amazing sights,... More

We had a family group of 9 (one child) and didn't want to join tens of other tourists visiting Phang Nga. After reading Trip Advisor reviews we selected River Rovers and went on 23 December - and what a great choice we made. We did the Phang Nga through the back door tour and it was just perfect for everyone's... More

Phang Nga Bay is absolutely spectacular! It is definitely a must see, and made even better by the excellent crew Gordon provided. I contacted Gordon via email on short notice, and he was quick to respond and able to set up the trip we wanted. We did a private tour since there was six of us and we have small... More

We took the Phangnga through the back door trip. It was amazing, exactly what we were looking for. There was only 6 participants, so I’d say it was pretty exclusive trip ;-) We visited the beautiful and quite places, swim several times and had a very good lunch. It was quite and very relaxing. It exceed my expectation. Thank you... More

Absolutely fantastic. This was a great day trip for the whole family. We all had a fantastic day out with Gordon and his team. The long tail boat was very comfy.

This boat ride had everything for each of us. My friends wanted to feed the monkeys and snorkel. I wanted to enjoy the mangroves and drink beer in a nice setting. Gordon and his team did a nice job keeping us well fed with fresh watermelons, ice tea, pineapple , bananas and then, while taking a dip in cool waters... More

This tour is very unique and a must do while in Phuket. Gordon and his team will bring you to quiet place far away from the mass of tourist. You will see and what you want (white sand beach, snorkling, feeding monkey, ...). This is the perfect trip for family. It's also a kind of exclusive tour as the boat... More
