Our group consisted of three inexperienced rafters (ages 47, 42, and 15). After some instruction from our guide (Ruben) and assistant guide (Santiago), we felt at ease in the raft. Ruben quickly evaluated our abilities and guided the raft through the rapids in a manner that we could handle (that is it was a very exciting ride, but we never... More

Our day of rafting with River explorers was organised by our Contiki tour guide Monica. They arrived on time and then it was an hour and a half bus ride to the river (we all had a nice nap) - Raoul was the leader of our boat - he was very safety oriented but not without a sense of humour!... More

I bring groups of college students to Perú twice per year. Both groups go white water rafting in Cusco. This time we chose River Explorers and we were very happy with our choice. The guides did a great job tailoring the difficulty of the path to the skills (or lack thereof) of the rafters. As the leader of the group,... More

If you plan on visiting Peru and have an adventurous side, you have to check out River Explorers! I did the one day rafting trip in Cusco and it was an incredible experience. I have never been rafting before but the guides, Ruben and Ronald, are highly experienced, knowledgeable and helpful. The water is a little cold but the beautiful... More

I have been rafting in the US, Chile and now Peru and River Explorers was by far my favorite experience. Guides were very experienced and did a great job of creating an enjoyable Peruvian experience. Can't wait to go back!!

My girlfriend and I went on the two-day Urubamba rafting trip. It was a lot of fun. The guides - Ruben and Mario - were very knowledgeable and helpful. The river was a bit cold, but yiou can't do much about that. A+ all around.

Our 11 day tour of Peru that was coordinated by River Explorers was wonderful. Throughout the process they were helpful and personable. They helped us create a personalized itinerary for just the two of us, so we could see the places we wanted to see, stay extra days, do extra tours, etc, so the trip was exactly the way we... More

Our trip consisted of six days starting with a few days in Cusco to acclimate to the high altitude. We had the... More

Fantastic trip, our tour guide was incredible. Every detail was taken care for us- transport from various places, train tickets, bus tickets, attraction tickets, everything. Tour guide would wait in line in the morning- have dinner arranged etc. We wanted to do hot springs and zip-lining- he arranged everything for us without a problem. Could not recommend this more.
