Our guide called Clive was very informative and it was a very relaxing ride. He pointed out a tiny turtle and other wildlife. Along the river there were people trying to sell things and if you wanted he would move the raft over to the river bank. The men operating these bamboo rafts will try and sell you things that...

This is the place or should I say the river to tube on. It is beautiful in places but can get merky in others. Very crowded due to cruise ship being in port.

Very nice trip but its in a very poor location. The tour guide was nice and friendly. Although they try to sell you vases that they made and look for tips.

A really nice way to experience something different. It was like stepping back in to a time when everything moved slower, a gentle trip on a Bamboo raft floating down the meandering Martha Brae river. Our captain was very informative and great company. Be ready to tip or to buy one of their souvenirs.

Very well informed raft Captains and slow and sedate ride. You need to tip the guide or buy his wares to keep him happy.
