Fantastic, fun experience. Our guide Tom was great, easy to talk to and made us feel at ease. We had a lovely cruise down the river, jumped off rocks, and then a fun jet boat return - would definitely recommend!

This was a very relaxing enjoyable river rafting experience. You had time to enjoy the scenery and company of fellow travellers.

Jess was excellent fun and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon
