“Nice trek and Rappelling Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

While I was in Mendoza for wine and R & R, I found this company for trekking. They were prompt on their pickup, friendly with their service, and pleasant to deal with. The trek was a good one and the rappelling, which I had never done before, was a welcome offer/addition. The "launching" area for all the activity groups had free wi-fi and drinks and I felt that we were always in good hands. They supplied us with water and fruit and then even had a lunch spread at the top. Wonderful experience!

“Good rafting, not the best communication”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

When we first arrived at the home base of Argentina Rafting no one told anyone what was going on and we all just sat around for 15 mins. Until finally someone told us where the rafting people had to go. It looked like there was some confusion with the other activities as well.

The gear was all good quality and in good condition. The facilities are also really fantastic. We were given a very good briefing up at the river. Unfortunately the rapids weren't huge due to the time of the year. But it was still great fun and really enjoyable!

At the end once we handed the gear back there again was no communication about when the buses were going back or what was happening (a common theme!). We had to wait around for about two hours till the bus left back to Mendoza. I feel like this is all a ploy to get people to eat (and pay) in l restaurant and most people do this. I had to ask a staff member when the bus left and the response was 'I think at about 3pm' which I was shocked about because it extends the day unnecessarily. So for a 1.5 hour activity we didn't get back to Mendoza till 4pm as it is a decent drive.

If I could rate this activity just based on the rafting I would give it an excellent review. But it is let down by some management issues.

“Good intentions, bad execution”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We signed up for a horse back riding tour with Argentina rafting expeditions. The whole trip was a bit disappointing as the guides didn't really speak much English, but also didn't try to communicate with us in any way. They picked us up in the morning, didn't explain how long the journey was, what we were doing etc. when we arrived at the location they just walked away without explaining how long we had to wait for our next pickup. We were just left with no information. When someone finally came to pick us up for the next ride to the horse farm, there was again no information on where we were going and what the plan was. Finally when we arrived at the farm, the guide literally 'dumped' us with the owner and was gone in 2'. Luckily there was a lady there who spoke some English and was able to explain the basics, as we were all beginner riders. The scenery was very nice, and the ride overall ok, but I would not recommend this service to people who are beginners and need some info to feel safe.

Gracias por su comentario, pido disculpas por demorar tanto en responder.
Cuando leimos este comentario, se hablo con el personal que trabajo en ese dia tato en el rafting com en la cabalgata para que esto no suceda en lo posible. Ahora al ser temporada media, justo el dia que nos visitastes lamentablemente la gente que trabajo, no manejaban el idioma.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Zip lining through the Andes was an amazing experience. So Fun! Oscar and Gustavo were outstanding!!! They made it even better!

We worked with our concierge and he helped us get a car service, so we didnt have to wait for the afternoon shuttle back. I recommend doing that, if you are only doing one activity.

“Amazing Outdoor Experience in Mendoza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Argentina Rafting offers unbelievable outdoor recreation in Mendoza. They are very well organized, and have some of the best gear (NRS) I have seen outside of the US. Not to mention their bathroom and shower facilities were impeccable! The Zip Line was so much fun, and the guides were very helpful and informative. I can't stop thinking about going rafting again! They are the best in Mendoza, so make sure you contact them when looking for some outdoor fun!
