Rafting with this company was an unforgettable experience! I have never been rafting before, so I was a little apprehensive in the beginning. At the beginning of the tour, we got our equipment at the company's base, which was really clean and organised. It also had a toilet and a shower, which was very useful after the trip. After that they took us down to the starting point with their busses, and there they gave the safety talk. My tour guide, Bence was very nice, and was very professional during the trip. I felt very safe even on the harder sections. The scenery was beautiful and the river was very clean. I will definitely be coming back next year!
This was fun! Although we were expecting to be in a group, it turned it was just my wife and I. The Soca river is incredibly beautiful (and cold!) and rafting on it was really exciting. The current is not too strong, so very suitable for beginners like us. Besides rafting, we also jumped off a few rocks and bridges. A super fun experience and there are not too many places in Europe where you can do this (I think). Our guide Mate was great: he explained everything thoroughly and made sure we were safe and having a good time. One thing that could be better: I think we were on the water for about 60-90 minutes, I expected that to be longer.
Our initial rafting time-slot happened to fall during bad weather, but we were given the option to postpone to the next day, when weather was supposed to be better. We did so, and ended up rafting on a perfectly sunny Wednesday morning. The rafting included some other activities such as jumping from high rocks, which was new to us and very much appreciated. Our guide Heidar was great and made sure we knew the safety regulations before the start of the rafting trip. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely recommend.
We were a group of four and absolutely loved this experience! Our guide (and all the others too) were just amazing! They were very open minded, qualified, helpful and full of jokes. We laughed a lot, had a beautiful experience at the river and felt save the whole time. All four of us can absolutely recommend this activity with this company!
We couldn't have wished for a better experience! All guides are amazing, we had an extremely fun and safe trip and once we returned, the team even helped us to fix our car that broke down right in front of the base. Highly recommended, we would always come back!
