Was my first time rock climbing. The instructors were easy to understand and very encouraging which was helpful. You got lots of climbing in for a half day tour. Would highly recommend for people wanting to rock climb.

I chose this company based on all the positive reviews on tripadvisor. Unfortunately my experience was not positive at all. I arranged my booking through email the day before which all went fine. But when I got to their shop on the morning of the trip, they seemed to be unaware of the booking and also a little bit uninterested.... More

Hi Iris, I am very sorry to see this poor review online, since I was the one working with you to arrange the booking via emails. First off I apologize if my staff seemed unaware of your arrival. Since there was no pick up request I wasn't sure what time you would arrive, or if you would arrive in time... More

Even as a reasonably experienced climber, you'll really get a lot climbing with real rocks! Tar and his wife took me and another climber for half a day climbing, and pushed me to my limit and beyond, we both had so much fun with Tar and his terrible but hilarious jokes!

The whole Idea of rock climbing and cliff jumping sounds interesting. After some research we locked in Real Rocks to help us with this. Extremely professional team yet very friendly and polite. Right from payments to the whole trip was very well planned. There were no hidden bad surprises which is the case with many others. The tuk tuk came... More

I decided to book the three day course, which could not have been a better decision. I've been eager to learn the basics of climbing with ropes, as I've only bouldered in the past, and I learned more in those three days than I could have possibly imagined. My guide, Tar, went above and beyond to ensure we covered everything... More

This is the second time we booked Real Rocks and they never disappoint. Tom is such a cool and funny guide. The first booking we made was climb + cave expedition which took us to the best viewpoint in Railay. The second one was 1/2 day climbing and Tom took us the Phra Nang beach area. I really appreciate that... More

What can I say, if you're looking for a challenging, fun, adrenaline pumping experience then these are the guys to go to. My boyfriend & I are both beginners, so opted for the one day session with Tar. In the morning we learnt how to tie the basic knots & how to belay etc then managed to conquer 4 climbs... More

We were really looking forward to this excursion. We signed up for the trip in their office half an hour before closing the evening before. Nothing was mentioned that there is a chance the trip may be cancelled. Bright and early the next morning we arrive and they tell us that not enough people signed up for the trip and... More

We are sorry to hear of such a mix up! It sounds like our front office staff did not do a great job communicating with you about the realities of our deep water soloing tours. Usually this time of year, the rainy monsoon season, we don't run the DWS island trips unless the weather is absolutely perfect and that is... More

Was an excellent experience. Tar was very patient, very knowledgeable guide, and at the same time such fun. Not only did he seem to really enjoy his work, but he really wanted to make sure you enjoyed it to the fullest, and got the most out of it. I signed up for a half day on one day and decided... More
