Wow what a fabulous 2 hours of seeing another side of Bali on the Ayung river. Our guide Wayan was a fabulous character and everyone enjoyed their adventure.

We got this for the family (2 adults & kids 8 & 12) at a super cheap price compared with other companies and through Sakthu who is affiliated with Classic Lofts at Seminyak Square. This is an Ayung River raft. We have done several through different providers and this one, like al the others largely depends upon the quality of the guide you get. Its like russian roulette. All in all, we got a sullen non-smiley guide but who got us through safe and it included a magnificent waterfall experience. The kids got to float down the river with their safety vests but there was a bit where they almost got swept away so watch them carefully! The end of trip facilities were dodgy brothers but functional. Just forget about the end of trip food. It was the worst I have ever seen, atrocious. For a decent quality 3 star rafting experience, get it at the right price otherwise you will get ripped off

We had never experienced rafting before, and I and my children really looked forward to the experience. It already started when we arrived at Bahama Rafting. We were met with ladies who would sell us plastic pockets for money and camera. We thanked no, but the ladies did not give up. The lady we paid for the rafting did not say hello and did not look at us once. The guide who met us seemed hangover and smoked us up in the face. He began then to push for tips. Already, I began to think if I should cancel it all. It all seemed very unprofessional in terms of safety as well. We had to go down to the river and the stairs were slippery and there was nothing to hold on to. As we waited for the boats to be pumped up with air, there were other organized rafting boats floating by. The guides on these boats laughed and had fun with the people in the boat. Here again began the smoking guide to fuss about that we had to give tips, he did not give up, he also shouted when we rafted in the river that I had to tip and we had to give at least 100...Our guide spoke bad english and did not speak during the whole trip. Fortunately, we made our own fun. When the rafting was completed, the smoking guide started for the 12th time and asked for tips. I felt threatened to give tips and it did not feel good.

I went with my family and they had someone pick us up at our hotel in North Kuta. It took about ah hour to get there, but upon arrival we paid the remaining part of the fee and waited to be called. When you get out of your car, there will be people trying to sell you a waterproof bag for your phone and stuff.You technically don’t need one because you can give your small items to your raft instructor because they have a waterproof bag. They provide you with a life jacket, helmet, and paddle. I was allowed to bring my GoPro, but was told that it might fall in the water. I had to assure them that it would be safe. If you want to have an AWESOME time, request for Alibaba. He was our raft guide and made the experience 10x better than everyone else’s because he was funny and liked to joke around. Then you begin a 10 - 15 min descent from the location to the river and hop into the boat. There are a lot fo waterfalls that you’ll see along the way and there will be an area that you’ll be able to swim in the river! This is probably the longest rafting company that has the river because there were other groups that we saw start and end before we did. Towards the end, there will be someone with a. Camera that will take your picture, and you can purchase it if you would like at the lunch area, but if you have a waterproof camera, then you don’t have to waste your money on unnecessary things. At the end of the rafting experience you will have to make another 10 - 15 min ascent to the top of the hill which is VERY tiring. You will be provided with a free lunch and the driver will be there at the top of the hill because I was wondering if we had to walk ALL the way back to get our stuff to change into before lunch, but the driver was already there. If you have nothing else to do for the day, I would HIGHLY recommend doing it!

We had a fabulous rafting experience yesterday with Bahama rafting! Arrived safely after pick up( long and tedious transfer, but that's Bali traffic for you) and got geared up quickly. Lots of steps down to the river and then a bit of a wait as they blow the rafts up as you arrive. Once in the water, quick briefing and you're away! Minor rapids made it fun and interesting, but the scenery is sensational! Yes, I agree with the comments about overpriced drinks at the mid way stop, but you can say no! Second half great fun too, then another climb back up to the top ... Wobbly knees! True, the toilets/changing facilities leave a lot to be desired, and the lunch was mediocre, but I was there for the rafting and it was very reasonably priced. Yes, there was certainly 'pressure' to tip, but when you consider what we have compared to our guide's wages, I had no problem giving him 'a blue one'. (5 bucks!) Only downside is the tedious traffic to get there, but that's not Bahama's fault.
