My girlfriend and 2 of her lady friends plus me and my small dog went on a boat trip with River Rovers. It was great fun, nice boat, not fast but comfortable. The Captain was very professional, the cook produced plates of delicious local food, free drinks and there were 2 strong young guys as boat crew, so everything was... More

Without spoiling it too much I could not recommend this tour enough. It is a little more expensive than others but worth every penny. The thing I enjoyed most about this was that there was never a rush at any of the destinations. You were fed and had drinks all day too, bonus!

We are a family of 5 (15, 14 and 7yr old). We spent 3 nights on the boat and loved it. The crew provided us with amazing service and delicious meals. We had the extra luxury of visiting a mangroove filled with friendly monkeys we were able to feed and intact with, and no other tourists! River Rovers are able... More

We were a group of 4 and we did the Monkey Island tour -- by far the best tour we did in Thailand. The food was great, the boat ride, snorkeling, kayaking to Monkey Island -- was wonderful. Crew was friendly, courteous and polite. Definitely recommend this private boat tour over the larger boat tours available, as you get individual... More

River Rovers gave us a fantastic day out. The crew were so friendly and so accommodating. There was an endless supply of cold refreshments and fruit. We felt safe on the boat at all times, the crew were more than happy to detour to secluded beaches when we asked. The boat provided us with lots of sun cover as it... More

We were a group of 8 from China, with 6 over 60+ years old. Gordon was very considerate and told me in email not to worry, everything will be taken care of. He was right. Our tour guide "Miao" was friendly, patient caring and funny. There was laughter throughout the journey. We were worried about seasickness before the trip but... More
