Super provider. Great tour

The organization (pick-up, equipment, support, ...) worked really well and all guides really enjoy their job, which is skipped. The provider Desafio is really good and professional. We were in the dry season at the beginning of March, so the water level was a bit low. Nevertheless, the rafting was totally fun and there were some action-packed rapids. Again at any time, no matter if it is dry or rainy.

The rafting was not long enough but well organized.

This was expected a 8 hours activity and it took around 5 hours. The rafting part was not long enough. But we have seen very nice views along the way.
