And a great choice of driver Gede Wijana, really cool.

This review is a little bit late but I realized even late reviews can be so welcome if you are looking for information...

We are a family of two adults and two children. In august 2012 the children were age 7 and 10. This was our first white water trip. So we were looking for a raft for beginners and safe for kids.

- We choose Ayung river and yes this is very good for beginners! Not scary but just a lot of fun!
- When you choose a company, be aware that some companies are doing a short trip (look for a company with at least 10 km raft then you know you do the real raft)
- Sobek is well known but Mega rafting has a longer raft. Mega rafting starts earlier with some rapids you don't want to miss and the finish is at the same point (Sobek finishes left of the river, Mega rafting on the right)
- Mega rafting has life jackets and helmets for childlren
- For safety reasons, the children get no peddles
- At the start of the raft you get a short but good briefing and they also tell what the children must do: hold on the rope if the guide says 'hold on!'
- Mega rafting has prices for families (2 adults and 2 children): 192 USD but thanks to a review at TA we booked this trip through http://www.balidiscovery.com/tickets/activitylist.asp?Level=3&Id=19 and the costs were "only" 109 USD (booking through this company is also cheaper for individuals)
- We had a boat only for our family
- At the end there were clean and hot showers. They provide towels and even plastic bags for wet clothes
- The guide was good, funny and very nice with the children
- The lunch was ok
- During the trip you stop at a place where you can buy drinks: be aware that these drinks are very expensive. The sellers push you to buy a drink for the guide. Al lot of different companies stop at this place
- At the end they make a picture but they are not pussing you to buy it
- Like all other companies: you have to walk a lot of steps to the river and back but you can take your time

We enjoined the trip very very much. It was really lots of fun, safe and also very beautiful scenery (with stone carvings!)

I'd always wanted to tick white water rating off my bucket list, and thanks to a very persistent street vendor in Kuta I finally had the chance to do so. And for $35AUD including return transfer (an hour each direction), shower and lunch at the end of the rafting, it was hard to pass up. There are several companies that operate along the same river, I opted to go with Bali Discovery Tours.

And I had a great time. The 12km river was challenging enough for a beginner like me, but not challenging to the point where I was too stressed out to have fun and soak it all in. There were plenty of hair-raising rapids, but also a few spots where the water was a bit calmer. I could see it being a little dull for those who have done it before. Still there were many spectacular views to take in on our two hours on the water including lush forests, tranquil waterfalls, monkeys jumping around in the trees.. Oh and the sight of several rafts colliding at bottleneck spots along the river. Luckily no one fell out of the raft except for this klutz reviewer, but everyone is equipped with a helmet and a life jacket so it's not overly dangerous. In fact it was quite hilarious!! The guide did a great job at pulling me back in asap. And to top off a wonderful few hours on the water, the several metre drop at the end over a dam wall. It was exhilarating. Check out the photo I attached with this review to see my reaction, and be glad that there's no audio to go with it... ;)

That's another positive of Bali Discovery Tours, they have photographers littered along the river snapping away. Yes, you do get to stop off at various points along the river for a quick drink and photo opportunities, but there's no way of getting photos of you in the midst of your white water rafting action, so having the opportunity to purchase photos at the end of the tour was a very pleasant surprise. And in my opinion they were reasonably priced - Around $15AUD for a disc containing roughly 20 photos of your adventure.

Despite having a very memorable day out, there were a few downers. The first one was a harsh reminder that you're in a third world country. There were children bathing alongside the river at two different occasions. Not something you really want to see when you're sharing the same water and will inadvertently swallow some of during the rapids.. But you're a guest in this country and that's just how they do things over there, so not much can be done about that. It's their way of life. Secondly was practically being begged for a tip at the end of the tour by the guide. I will tip if the service if great no matter where in the world I am, but don't respond well to being asked to tip. To have the guide share his sob story for a good few minutes as we were making our way back to the van to guilt us into slipping him a few thousand rupiah wasn't appreciated, and did put a slight downer on the day. Two of the girls in the group brought absolutely no cash with them as they had already paid in full and didn't want to lose anything in the rapids - a very valid reason to not bring money - and he had the nerve to call them tightarses under his breath. I'm sorry but that's not appropriate. He also expected us to buy him a beer or two at one of the pit stops. This might all sound a bit harsh, but it's something I feel that needs to be pointed out.

The previous paragraph aside, it was a fantastic day and something I encourage everyone who wants a bit of excitement to try out. Oh and just a forewarning to those considering to do this tour, there is a very steep climb at the end of the rafting. Roughly 200 steps up to an area where you can shower and enjoy lunch before you set off to climb another 150 odd steps to where your transport back to your hotel awaits. So be sure to conserve some of your energy from the rafting for this hike!!

I took 12 of my office staff for our 1st time ever white water rafting. We booked via a travel agent and paid RP250.000 per person, including roundtrip transfer from hotel and lunch with LAPAMA RAFTING.

The trip started out OK. It was a Sunday and a lot of people were going rafting that morning. The " lobby" area was shabby and the bathroom was dark with no lights whatsoever, you just have to sort of feel your way around the stinky bathroom. There was really no real order as to how they administered their clients. They just geared everyone to put on life vest and helmet that looked worn out and walked us down 100 steps to the river's edge. There, they gave some brief but unclear safety instructions and got us into the boat, 4 pax a boat plus 1 guide and they reminded us to tip the guide later on.

The 16 kilometer journey was filled with beatiful scenery and great clean clear albight raging waters... And the guide was spalshing us with his oars and joking around to get us laughing and not so tense and scared as we manuvered through the big rocks.

Then our guide Nyoman, stopped at a waterfall about 6kg into the journey where a guy sold sodas at 5x what they normally cost and all the guides drank and had the guest pay for them. They also smoked and blew their smoked right next to you... So I simply moved away to get some clean air to breath.

About 2 kilometers drom the finish lined, they stop the boat again and urged us to jumped into the river as they said the spot there is calmer and deep enough to swim with no rocks around.

So I had a quick swim and when I was going back up into the boat....This is when Nyoman decided it was fun to tease me by dragging me back down into the river, held me from behind tightly by hugging me and when I was far away enough from the boat he let go of me but then from under the water reached for my crocth!!!!! and when I screamed at him, he turned my body around and went for my butt!!!! Grabbing and squuzing it about 5 times rapidly!!!

I was simply dumb struck!! Here I was exhausted after 14 kilometer of hard peddling and feeling that I may have gotten myself over my head white water rafting and still gasping for air... But this Nyoman who was suppose to care for us... Decided it was fun to manhandle
me!????

With me feeling that this guide still has to get us to the finish line in the next 2 kilometers, I simply took a long deep breath..told him to stop his "jokes" and help me back into the boat and get us to the finish line. My thought was just how much of a low life and unproffesional guide LAPAMA rafting had.

When we get there, there were still 100 steps to get up to the restaurant and shower rooms... Which was just as shabby as the reception lobby but had some lights. They provided some lunch but no drinks included.

So Telaga waja is an exceptional rafting site.... Rafting is great fun and physically demanding... Just better get a much reputable company than LAPAMA Rafting!

I would more than gladlly pay double the price, for decent bathrooms, good conditioned safety equipments and most importantly a guide that actually care for my safety and treated me with respect... Not one that thinks grabbing my crocth and butt is acceptable joking behavior!!!!

Mega Rafting was somewhat fun on the journey, except the tour guide kept "joking" with me every two seconds. I wanted to punch him after the tenth time in ten minutes.

I went on a private trip with the guide and my father. Again, sights were nice. Everything else sucked.

THEN, the food at the end. I don't know why I didn't think about not eating it - I was so exhausted. But I did. Disgusting, covered in flies, I think it had been sitting out for days.

Now, I have a parasite in my stomach, a temperature of 103.0 F, and I am barely able to eat or use the restroom. I went to see an Indonesian doctor who was barely any help. Now, I'm back in the US and am testing for which parasite I have.

My immune system is so low, I also now have bronchitis.

I suggest you skip Mega Rafting and pay the extra for a different company.

When we booked our trip we were never told about it being a Level 4 rapid which means it is very dangerous. 10 mins into our ride we hit rocks which tipped me into the water and under rocks for over 30 secs, the guide even thought i should be dead. I'm not saying don't do it because of my experience, i'm saying just be very very careful.

If you want to go rafting do it on the Telaga Waja River. It is a shallower, and therefore much faster river (class 3-4) than the Agung river (class 1-2). It is very adventurous to ride on the river for about 2,5h and 16km. At about the middle you will have a short break at a waterfall. We choose Bali Internatiol Rafting because of some forum and blog reviews. They mentioned that they are very save and do one of the longest rides on the more adventurous river, the Telaga Waja. It was the first time that we went rafting, but with the guide on board who tells you all the time what you have to do it is very simple. However, rafting is not the safest sport! The river has its own mind and sometimes there are trees and rocks in the water. You have to look for your fingers, if you crash into a wall. Besides this, there were two trees laying extremely low across the river. You have to lean back completely, otherwise they will hit you. Especially the second tree was very low and touched my belly. In this way I would not recomment this river for children, but for all other beginners and pros it is very good, especially with the very good team from Bali International Rafting. They had very good and new rubber boats. At the end of the trip there was a very good buffet and also free towels and showers.

By the way, you can bargain a lot! We paid 70US$ for TWO persons! In their flyer they say the price PER person is usually approx. 70US$!

We went white water rafting on our last day in Bali. I am not much of a thrill seeker, and so was terrified at the thought. We went with a company called "Rejeki Ayung Rafting", on the Ayung River. Their normal price is $65US for adults, including transfers, lunch & showers. However, in our 2nd week in Bali we stumbled across a lovely tour guide who we used for absolutely everything from that day on. We have kept his contact details and will use him / recommend him highly. His company have a contract with the rafting company, and so if you go through him, it costs $30US per adult all inclusive and then the hire of him & his driver ($45 for 8 hours. The rafting takes only 2 hours, so for the rest of the time, he will take you wherever you want to go), working out at $105 for 2 adults with a whole day of exploring, rather than $130 for just the rafting.

Anyway, back to the rafting... a beautiful walk through rice paddies to the cliff at the edge of the river. The walk down the cliff is a bit tiring for those of us who aren't overly fit. Worth it once you get to the bottom though. The guides are lovely and talk you through everything before you all get in the raft. If you have a waterproof camera, take it! The scenery down here is just amazing! So untouched and beautiful. The rapids aren't very big, so this track is really good for beginners like me. I wasn't scared at all. We did get thoroughly wet, although we managed not to fall out of the boat. We were on the river for just under 2 hours. The walk up the cliff at the other end was absolutely exhausting and was the only part I didn't enjoy... Must get fitter before we go back!

Once back up the top, we were given towels and plastic bags for our wet clothes and were shown to the showers. After cleaning ourselves up and changing, we were shown upstairs for lunch, which was an Indonesian buffet. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our first ever rafting experience and would recommend this company to everyone.

This was a great day out. $27.50AUD included transfers, rafting and lunch, great value. Just be aware that depending on what company you use there maybe a rather long climb (over 200 steps) at the end. Didn't bother us, but if you are old or otherwise slightly incapacitated you may struggle.

Having done the 'white water' rafting many times over the years, and it always proves to be a real highlight, i would like to bring it to peoples attention who are thinking on doing it of a report in the Bali post . A goverment agency states that the water quality has been down graded from suitable for water sports (class 11) to suitable for agriculture (class 111) . This is quite distrubing, on this little bit of heavan. The link :
