We had such a great time rafting in the Sacred Valley with River Explorers. I had never been rafting before but River Explorers provided all the equipment we needed and helped us learn the basic commands before we hit the water. Our guide Eduardo and the rest of the team were brilliant and we had so much fun with them.... More

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.

The tour guides were very knowledgeable, helpful and fun. They encouraged splashing the other rafting team and took tons of photos for us so we... More

As part of a longer tour in Peru, I opted into this rafting trip and it did not disappoint! The staff were awesome people, knowledgeable, and did a great job running through all of the commands and safety measures. Also, they provide all of the equipment you'll need from wetsuits to water shoes to lunch, so just bring your swim... More

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!

Had a great time rafting. Guide was very knowledgeable and the lunch was cooked fresh on site. The commute was not bad from Cusco. We got to see some great scenery.

We did the 1-day rafting tour which was amazing! They picked us up from our hotel and explained how the day would proceed as well as the safety procedures; They were all very professional. It was so much fun and incredible scenery. The included lunch was one of the best we had. Would definitely recommend to friends and go again.

The 1-day rafting experience was amazing. It was so much fun, and these guys are true professionals. They go over safety precautions with you and give you instructions well. They picked us up at the hotel, provided lunch, and brought us back. I would definitely go rafting again with them.

I was in Urubamba with my 3 sons (ages 13, 11 and 9) and originally booked a 1 day white water rafting trip with River Explorers.
