Everything was perfect and well prepared, the problem was if u only book rafting you most likely going to wait because it’s one bus, but they kinda fix the waiting problem, you have to bring all your stuff with you if they have a shop for everything you might need, our guide was ABDUL he’s funny and outgoing we had a great time but he keep throwing people in the river lol. The bus we took was with no air conditioning but it good shape we left the hotel 10:00 and came back 17:00 I highly recommend it

Great landscape, great rafting guide and a lot of fun!! In addition to the brilliant experience, we found the implementation really good. Although we had only booked rafting, we didn't have to take part in any unnecessary waiting times, since we weren't so lucky with another provider 2 years earlier.

We had a great time and felt we were well taken care of throughout our rafting experience by the raft guide ( properly the tallest man but I don’t know how to write his name) and his assistant ( the young man) . The water is so nice but freezing at the same time so be aware of that.

great people, really funny and know what they are doing. Didn't realise we could have booked other activities like safari, quad bike ride and Zip line, which was a shame but still had fun. 100% take a change of clothes as you will get wet!

Fantastic event. Great team, which made this trip really good fun! We loved it.
