We were fortunate to cruise around Phang Nga with Gordon and his team. The point of difference with River Rovers is that you avoid the often crazy masses that are packed in like sardines on the main Phang Nga tours. Gordon took us through less travelled areas UN Phang Nga. Personal highlights for me were the large mangrove forests. Much... More

Gordon was very responsive to my enquiry and were booked a day out with him and his crew. It was a great day with a very relaxed peace and lots of fun. My son loved jumping off the boat, snorkeling and being towed on the kayak. Great food and great fun away from the hoards of tourists.

Captain Gordon is the one you should reach out to if you aim to enjoy island hopping at a leisurely pace, away from the crowds in the Andaman Sea (and believe me, I realized why one should avoid crowds when I landed at Khao Phing Khan island to catch a glimpse of the famed James Bond islet). In his boat... More

Just got back to the hotel after an amazing day on the Monkey Jungle Cruise. Gordon was an excellent host, anticipating all our wishes and making the trip informative and fun. Luck is the local superwoman. She is an amazing 5 star chef, and first mate. She cleans, kayaks, snorkels and fishes. We were very impressed with her unending stamina.... More

We loved our trip with Gordon and his team. We had a great day on the boat including feeding the monkeys, snorkelling, swimming, and an amazing lunch cooked on the boat. The monkeys were a highlight as we've never been that close to them before and the Thai meal cooked for us was amazing. Best thai food we had while... More

This was one of the best days of our trip to Phuket! Gordon was very accommodating for me and my girlfriend (who is in a wheelchair). She was able to do every activity thanks to the extra helpers that Gordon made available for us. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore Phang Nga Bay without the... More

We booked a river cruise (2 adults and 2 boys twelve and ten). Pick up from the hotel was on time and Gordon was waiting at the pier for us. 5 minutes later we were on board and underway. First up was the cruise up the river to the mangrove swamp and then to feed the monkeys, the kids thought... More

I booked this trip for myself and four kids (13,11,7) after reading Gordon's website and other reviews. I wanted something not too commercial, with the personal touch and flexibility. I wanted to avoid the big hotspots and to avoid big open water crossings in case of sea sickness. I wasn't disappointed. All the organisation was great, we were really looked... More

After reading through reviews i decided that this was the boat tour my sister and I wanted to do and it did not disappoint. Gordon was an absolute gentlemen and went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience possible. The first stop was the mangroves where we got to see monitor lizards resting on the...
