Although I couldn't spend much time here, I loved my visit to Port Blair. My short stay was worth it as I got the best recommendations. I owe my experience to Gopal bhaiya who runs his own small travel agency (Sadai Tours and Travels). He knows everything about the islands: where you should visit, what's a good place to eat at, where to stay, and how best to fill your day! His enthusiasm kept me on my feet. If you're looking for a good, eventful, budget-friendly trip with the best informal guide, Gopal bhaiya is the man.

He also helps you book your ferry tickets, stay, visitors tickets, two-wheeler renting, etc. Just leave your trip in his hands and you won't have a thing to worry about. He's polite, happy, hard-working, and very very helpful. Best travel agent ever for a custom-made trip.

Call him as soon as you land in PB, and he's there to take care of you. Call him on +91 9531918600 or +91 9933202151.

Island with a history
Mar 2021
Ross Island is a small island with an interesting history. Spend my time here for one and half hour. Although the island is small but it has a lot a lot to offer to tourists and travellers. In the end, one and half hour is not enough to explore the area. The ruins bungalows, church, quarters, etc. tells you a story of the past which we often forget to appreciate.
My time in Andaman was worth every penny I spend and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Part of it was made possible by my autorishaw driver cum guide, Gopal, who helped me throughout my journey. His hospitality is beyond exceptional. I got his contact no. here in tripadviser. Thanks to that. I didn't have to worry much even before I land in Andaman. Gopal can be contacted at 9531918600.
Happy Holidays!

Good Experience
Apr 2021
Ross Island was a part of our double island tour of Ross and North Bay.
The dilapidating structure tells the story of the British Rule during those times. There are electic carts to give the tours. One can also opt for guide.

Be ready to see deers and peacocks from a hand's length. Though the rain dampened our visit but, overall it was good.

We didn't have any proper idea on booking the tickets for the tour. Our auto-rickshaw driver, Mr. Sadai Gopal on hearing this helped us out on the complete trip planning. He ensured the tickets, picked us up from the hotel and introduced us to the tour guys. He also helped us book Batarang trip (though it didn't finalize due to our other plans).

Rarely do you find people in tourist place who go to such lengths to ensure that you leave with good memories. If you are in Port Blair, don't hesitate to give Mr. Gopal a call (9531918600/ 9933202151). He is one man army to hook you up with Hotels, tour packages, vehicles for hire and others.

Deers on the island
Apr 2021 • Family
We had a day trip to north island & Ross island. From North north island to Ross island it took about 15mins on a ferry boat ride. Once we entered Ross island we saw lots of deer in the park.there were golf cart rides which would take a person up about 1 & a half km to the light house & bring back when u r ready. I was lucky to see peacocks rabbit also.

MUST VISIT PLACE
Feb 2021
Ross island is a beautiful place to visit, specially the light house point. Currently halt at this island is limited to 90 minutes. Once you get down of ferry, you have to buy an entrance ticket and once in, you have the option of exploring it on foot or by battery cart. We preferred battery cart because of time limitation and hot Sun. You can see ruins of buildings of British era and can imagine the life at that time.

Beautiful and well maintained
Feb 2021 • Couples
Ross island is very beautiful, with peacocks and deer roaming freely here among the decades old trees. There are ruins here of the British era, and it is interesting to read about them. I highly recommend a walk uphill on the island to the top most point where you get sweeping vistas of the sea. In case you cannot walk, you can rent a golf cart for seeing the island too. Highly recommend a visit here from Port Blair.

Beautiful island with many photo ops
Mar 2021 • Family
The island is full of historic ruins and gives the feel of mini angot kor with huge trees rising out of these ruins. You can easily spend around two hours in the island. The sea looks beautiful with turquoise colors and the island overall is very photogenic

Mix of history and nature
Mar 2021 • Family
Located a short boat ride away from Port Blair it takes a total of 1to 2 hours to visit. There are lots of deers, peacocks and rabbits running around not scared of humans. You can easily take photographs with them. Good for those with interest in colonial history as well. If you don't want to walk you can take a ride on electric carts for Rs 80 only. There are good views from most places on the island as well as a nice lighthouse right at the end of the tour
