Have been on a few of these now but still find the views amazing and every trip is a bit different, this trip though the canoe trip was awesome as usual but no hassling from the guides like happens in many tours. They never asked for anything and where very friendly, always tip more for the ones that don't hassle :) The onboard entertainment was hillarious, and everyone in our group had a great time. Ages ranged from 21 to 70's

Been in Chalong for over a week. Still cannot find these people. Reviews look good, want to book BUT. How to find them. Both Google map locations are a bust. Asking around people say they have not seen this company for a long time. Guess they are out of business. Pity we wanted to book with them.

We had a fantastic day aboard river rovers! Unfortunately Bernard was not available to join us, but his wife Palita was a wonderfully friendly, funny and kind host. The boat is slow, very slow - so if you want to roar around the seas this is not for you.... however if you want a beautifully peaceful experience on the water, visiting secluded beaches, snorkelling, kayaking and generally pottering around, then it is perfect. We were a group of 3 - two do not like to be in the sun, and the covered part of the bot was perfect. I however love the sun, and could sit on the roof and enjoy the journey from there. Lunch was absolutely delicious, and plentiful - how Palita prepared it in the tiny kitchen I have no idea! And soft drinks, water and beer were readily available. One of our group was a little nervous snorkelling and going on the kayaks- and the captain was incredible - he took her under his wing, guiding her with what to do so that she could fully enjoy all of the experiences that the trip had to offer. Feeding the monkeys was a highlight - when we were presented with a huge bag of food to feed them from the Kyaks. An unforgettable experience. Thank you so much to Palita and her crew for a beautiful day - and Bernard for all of your help in organising it.

We had a lovely half-day trip with our daughters 3 and 5 years old. Everything was perfect, kids were happy: they were kayaking with us and playing with members of staff at the boat. Together we caught a big fish on our way to the kayaking place and in the evening cooked it together at home. Bernard and Polita are great hosts.

One of the top experiences I've had on a tour. The monkey jungle cruise was so much fun for our family. Kayaking the mangroves, feeding the monkeys, seeing a working fish farm a deserted island and diving off the boat were all amazing and such a yummy lunch on board the small boat. If you want something off the beaten path this is your tour.
