  1. Will and Ellie

    We recently took on the full day climbing tour at Railay with Real Rocks Climbing School and it was one of the best tours we’ve done in Asia! Our guide was funny, friendly, extremely knowledgable and super passionate about rock climbing – he knew exactly what routes to put us on according to our ability and safety was the top priority the whole time. We got to climb on some exciting routes, surrounded by incredible scenery and views – Railay is such a beautiful place to climb – and we also met some great people along the way! It was such a brilliant day and we would recommend this tour to anyone, no matter how experienced they are!
