Everything worked out great, pick-up at the agreed time at the hotel in Side, then a 90-minute bus ride to the starting point, where there was the possibility to buy waterproof cell phone cases and water shoes as well as rent wetsuits. Since we had an initially rainy day, we borrowed the suits and didn't regret it (4 ° C (?) Water temperature). Despite the recommendation, we did without the shoes, but we had no problems with our sports shoes either. After equipping the participants, there was a short journey by bus before going into the water. A guide rides in every boat, gives commands and ensures fun and moments of surprise. After about 9 km there is a break with the possibility to have a drink or a snack. Then the rest of the route continues with swimming opportunities. Once you have arrived at your destination (starting point), you will have the food included in the price as well as the opportunity to purchase a DVD of the tour (€ 25), followed by a return trip to the hotel.
We had a lot of fun, the guide was great and the landscape and the river were just gorgeous. The long bus ride with sometimes too many stops was a bit exhausting. But overall a great experience which I can only recommend.
Amazing raft experience, would definitely recommend! It goes little slow waiting for everyone but just have entertaining comedy people on the same boat, no diva’s and none who don’t paddle, it weighs you down lol
I overcame my fear of jumping off the bridge as we paused. Guide Jacob was so sweet to jump with me and it ended with me jumping 2 times with him;) super good experience.
Amazing trip, amazing guide, great communication throughout, highly highly recommended
