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

If you are traveling in a group, it is good to get a boat exclusively for yourselves. Hence this was what my friends and i did, we got 3 boats from River Rovers to bring us around Chalong beaches. Monkey feeding doesn't sound so exciting, but kayaking to feed monkey is way too fun to describe it. I had a... More

Great trip if you guys want to enjoy with your group of friends without having to rush about. Gordon was friendly guy and food served by his crew were excellent. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Phuket. TL;DR I recommend this.

There were 26 of us who booked the Monkey Jungle Cruise although their boat, PITTA can carry up to 10pax. Gordon hired another two longtail boats to cater for this large crowd. PITTA: It has a lavatory which serves as a shower as well. There were two bedrooms and a kitchen but most importantly there was this deck where you... More

Went in a group of 26 people. We wanted to relax and enjoy time with each other after exams. The trip started early in the morning. We went to a mangrove forest to feed monkeys and kayak around. Then after an hour or so, we went to 2 different secluded beaches and spent long lazy hours sitting on the sand,... More

Excellent tour, I would def recommend this to anyone who is visiting Phuket. The food was fantastic, and the helpers on board friendly and helpful. The only minor complaint was that there wasn't enough paddles for canoeing but then again, we were a big group and there were a lot of us. The trip was good overall.

I was going as a big group of 26 people on 13th June 2015, and all of us agree that this is our most enjoyable tour in Phuket. It is also my happiest day by the beach! Gordon has been very helpful in arranging the itinerary of the tour and tried his best to fulfill all the requirements we had.... More

As a quadriplegic who was suffering some pain from recent injuries, I never thought that I would be able to go on such an amazing tour of Phang Nga Bay as customized by Captain Gordon and his crew. From the time that I was hoisted onto Captain Bang's traditional Thai longtail boat by three crew members, seated comfortably in my... More
