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...

We booked the monkey river rover tour with Gordon prior to arriving in Thailand as we read the reviews and found it would be something different for us to do with our 4 children ranging from1 year to 15 years. We were not disappointed. Upon meeting with Gordon and Luk we set out to go up the river through the... More

We found river rovers and the reviews were fantastic so we decided to go for it. it was one of the best experiences of our lives to date. The tour caters for your own personal interests and we chose to go to the mangroves, see some islands, have... More

Beautiful scenery, delicious food, relaxing time, chilling music, fresh fruits, juices, cold beer and a very good company - Gordon and Luck. Free choice of activities, no rush, no tourists around. Fabulous. And all this for a very reasonable price. We recommend it to all. It was a great time Captain Gordon. Thank you.

It was a bright sunny day, a perfect weather for River Rovers where the sea breeze caressed our cheeks gently. Gordon made us at home immediately once we were on board. He offered us with fresh pieces of pineapple and watermelon to keep us hydrated. There was also a huge ice box with generous amount of mineral water and beverages... More
