We had a great time rafting with River Explorers. The guides were very friendly and we had a lot of fun. They also put on a great spread on the side of the river once we finished rafting!

Great staff and beautiful views! After hiking the Inca Trail this was a nice relaxing way to get views of the Sacred Valley. The guides were knowledgeable and made sure everyone had a good time. You spend about to hours on the river which is then followed by a fabulous lunch.

I had a great time rafting for the first time! The guides were very knowledgeable and the (vegetarian) lunch was delicious. The commute was about 2 hrs from Cusco. Would go again!
