We had a great time! Very organized and completely equipped and staffed. Victor was a great guide and cook. Ronald kept up a constant stream of explanation and wild life spotting. We saw puma, river otter and many birds. I recommend this for those who would like to spend time in the kayaks. The white water is more challenging in... More

It was a two hour bus ride from Cusco to the rafting site. When we arrived, we were suited up in wetsuits, life jackets, overcoats, water shoes, and water shorts. Even though it was a cold day, we were provided equipment to stay warm and comfortable out on the water. Eduardo was excellent in teaching us the proper technique for... More

There were 4 of us that went out for the day rafting. We ranged in age from 50 to 11 and the trip was amazing. Santiago told stories that made the 2+ hour drive go by in a blink. The equipment was good and the entire experience was one of the best we had in Peru. The lunch at the... More

Rafting was so much fun! Our guides were awesome, they were extremely knowledgable and nice, and in combination with an awesome rafting group, made the two hours on the river extremely memorable! We got to cliff jump and jump into the river to float down the last rapids! The rafting was then followed by a delicious lunch! Overall it was... More

We had a group go rafting. We were picked up in Cusco by an English speaking guide. After a saftey lesson we hit the river. My group had limited experience but we felt like pros by the end. The guides were very professional, friendly, and helpful. I felt very safe but able to be as adventurous as I wanted. Everything... More

Our guides were knowledgable and friendly- we had a blast with a guide rafting, jumping off cliffs, taking pictures. Our group was really fun because we had a group name and would cheers after every rapid. We worked well together. For the last rapid, our entire group jumped out of the rafts and floated/swam down stream to the end point.... More

We had the best day white water rafting as an extra during our Contiki. The guides were very well equipped, friendly, funny and made the whole experience 110% anazing. The lunch at the end was incredibly delicious and there was a vegetarian option aswell and included drinks, breads and main. There was even a makeshift toilet to use before we... More

We did the One Day Rafting Trip from Cusco on the Upper Urubamba River (June 2016; dry season) and had so much fun. Our guide and crew were amazing. Our guide Tomas was very knowledgeable about the area which made the trip way more enjoyable. More importantly he was a very experienced rafter and made the trip very safe for... More
