We booked last Sunday two canoe rafts with the family with the departure in Passy. The organization was correct and the COVID-19 measures were applied as it ahould be. Duriing the 8 km on the river we enjoyed the rapids in the river and when the river was calmer, the guide had some funny challenges to test our rowing skills We had great afternoon on the water and will definitively come back when we would pass again in this regiion

We had so much fun on the river. There was 5 us and our instructor in the raft. It rained the day/night before so had to drive to Passy as the rapids were too strong and water too high in Chamonix. This didn’t spoil the experience one bit. We laughed so much and the kids (aged 10 & 12) loved being able to jump in the river. They take photos of you as you go down which you can buy at the end for extra €. This is a must!

Our family of 4 kids (ages 7 to 11) did a beginner rafting trip with Session Rafting. After a morning of rain the river level was higher than normal, but still very safe. Our guide was excellent, making fun games for the kids and adults in between the rapids. His knowledge of the river ensured we were kept safe at all times. I thought the rafting adventure was great value for money and a highlight of our holiday.

Really enjoyed this activity and were it not for having a totally arrogant and extremely rude French guide, I'd have given it 5 out of 5. If he wasn't happy to brief in English, this should have been stated before the booking was confirmed. He was absolutely obnoxious to all but the 2 non-French speakers on the raft. Luckily we didn't fall out or get injured because frankly this guy is a safety concern for your company - tour at 4 pm on August 6th. He gave limited instructions in English but 90% of the time spoke French - I'd have no problem with that, if we had known in advance.

We are extremely sad that this could have happened. know that the guide in question will no longer be in contact with foreign customers because you have indeed found its weak point. the difficulty for him to express himself in English. I wish to see you and your family again and invite you to call us back for an unforgettable offer ... to pleasure, thomas

We booked our tour thru Evolution 2 and chose a cold and rainy Sunday morning for our trip. Perfect conditions and atmosphere for a great ride along the river. Bring towel and bathers to have underneath the given wetsuits - and a small hat if you don’t like the feel of the wet helmet. The river is melted ice directly from mer de glace so it is really cold. Dry underwear and a sweater for your return is recommended. All gear is provided and only a short ride to the starting point. Good and clear instructions and all set to go. Good bumps and swirls on the way. Great feel to fly down Charmonix village on the raft. Mind to keep you feet well in the strips in the raft or you may fall overboard like me - quickly pulled back into the raft security is well handled by the guide and for me and the group it only added to the fun. Highly recommendable - paticular takeing preteens - great fun, great swirls and with excellent guiding. Bonsaii.
