Our rafting experience was excellent!! Our guide, Jhon was the best, he was very thorough with his explanation of what we had to do and he was careful to make sure we were always safe. We had a fantastic time and would recommend this trip to any one who loves adventure and a fun time. The scenery was beautiful and this trip was a highlight of our time in Arequipa.

It was soooo much fun. It was an awesome experience. The rapids were good and strong but at no time did I feel unsafe. My two guides were amazing and made the experience great.

Definitely recommend this activity - very fun and just enough adventure. It was safe and our guide was exact.

Awesome experience. Great, fun guides. Everything was taken care of
