We traveled to Phuket with another couple and did a private tour with River Rovers to Phang Nga Bay onboard a traditional Longsail. It was a blast! One of the highlights of our trip for sure. I loved that River Rovers was willing to work with us on a customized itinerary. Our group of four was picked up at our... More

Overall a very relaxed and fun trip! Thanks Captain Miao, Lucky and the sailor lady for a very unique experience. So fun to get so close to monkeys and feed them (thanks Lucky!) We also enjoyed a lot the snorkeling stops and the fun company of the ladies. Not to mention the delicious food, super yummy!!

Overall it was a good trip. We enjoyed the experience in the long tail boat. We did not get to do as much because of the low tide. The 2 girls were friendly and looked after us well. Especially Meow who is full of enthusiasm and makes sure we had a good time. It was definitely great having her as... More

We did the monkey snorkeling and island tour. Staff on the boat where all girls who where very friendly. Plenty of drinks and food along the whole trip. Plenty of time to relax in between travel from one to the other locations. Nicest if you have a group around 6 people.

We booked with River Rovers as a family of 10. The day started with a nice boat ride out to a snorkeling area; we were able to ride on the kayaks with the boat pulling them along and snacks were provided along the way. This snorkeling was some of the best I've ever done, they took us to 2 different... More

Gordon arranged the boat trip for just 5 of us, which was perfect. Plenty of fruit, cold drinks and beers, non stop food being served up as we enjoyed the trip up the creek into the mangroves off Chalong Bay, and then put to the unfrequented bays on the islands for wonderful swimming and snorkelling. The three girl crew took... More
