Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 102 reviews

honestly this is a must to do, particular with this company!! I would agree with the other reviews and give more stars if I could! the team was amazing, our driver was chilled out, understanding and made sure we all had fun! it's a well organized experience. The lead organiser comes with you and gives you clear updates Food was really good and tasty, set up at the perfect location. Constant water fights along the way so I would say prepare to have fun getting drenched and wetting other keeps! The boat trip was nice and relaxed, lovely scenery and really friendly drivers. The water fall are was nice and clean with a few shops (you have to pay 10 lera to get in)

Really fun day out. The views during the rafting are absolutely incredible. Great value for money aswell considering all that is included. We did purchase water shoes whilst we were there but i'd reccomend taking your own if you can as they were really uncomfortable. There was only one thing I wouldve changed about that trip and that was the fact we are english speakers but put with a german speaking group and tour guide, so we couldnt understand alot of what was going on

It was just great! our guide - Captain Jack was the best! He made it such an adventure for all of us! we laughed a lot! the water is a bit cold. wear watershoes. dont take anything with you. the pictures and the video are verry good and funny! its worthy!

Absolutely fantastic service that good that we rebooked and going back in a few days time thank you to all the staff very nice and friendly highly recommend this place.

Big adventure! A lot of fun! off road was crazy, swimming in the lake was refreshing! Take a scarf for the dust.
