Looking for something to do when it is flooding in kuta. We headed up to ubud. Chicken out again on the bigger rapids, going with the safety of agung river, but think it is time I step it up. Due to flooding the water was not best quality and waterfall was smelly and brown. Unlike other times water clean and... More

A very fun and enjoyable activity in Ubud. Joined the Ayung River white water rafting and it is suitable and exciting enough for rafting beginner. They assign 1-2 guides to each boat and the guide pays great attention to your safety and wouldn't ask you to go too far beyond your abilities. The facilities, such as the shower, the dining...

It was a pleasant trip, very professional staff and well maintained facilities. Our guide, spider, was attentive in giving clear guidance. The trip was fun and relaxing, amazing view along the river with green scenery and beautiful peek to riverfront resorts, which can't get access unless going down the cliff with 509 steps. The bathroom is comfortable for showering and... More

The only thing I didn't like was the 500 steps down to get to the raft and the 300 steps back up to get back on... More

Did Ayung one day and Telaga Waga the next, both with Sobek. Great service door to door. First driver was smooth and safe... second one was not as good. Rafting was with kids age 11 and 15 who are very adventuresome. Ayung was a great first experience and they really enjoyed it. Our guide made it fantastic. On request for... More

We booked a bike tour with Sobek with another family of friends, after a great white water rafting experience 5 years ago, but were quite disappointed. We were picked up from our villa in Seminyak at 7:30am, as scheduled, and arrived at the top of the Kintamani volcano at 10:00am for tea and snacks. From there, we were taken to... More

Folks were courteous, our guide Alejandro was great and took care of us throughout the trip. Wash room facilities were clean. Lunch was ok! Definitely would... More
