I was one of 13 women who recently enjoyed a white water rafting experience with Sobek. I found the company really well organised, efficient and the employees well versed in safety and communication skills. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip and would highly recommend it to anyone. The photographs and CD of photo's option is painfully slow however. Food good and all... More

Rafting in Bali is fun and accessible to almost anyone. Just make sure you pick the Telaga Waja river, the longest and fastest river. Sobek seemed more professional than the rafting companies we came across. However, keep in mind you'll have to walk up a lot of stairs at the end of the adventure. Also, feel free to skip the...

Our family group of three adults thoroughly enjoyed our river rafting experience which was Class 2 (not very scary!) all the way because the water levels were not high. Still lots of fun, in a gorgeous 12km section of the river. Our guide, Froggy, was experienced and fun to be with. Definitely recommend this company. We did the afternoon rafting... More

The river adventure was overall great Somehow Sobek ripped us off by charging more than the amount they claimed when paying with credit card. Many people were complaining about the same issue with them at the time of payment. The initial instructions are very quick and short and within minutes you are in the wild river Our instructor was a... More

I'm not a thrill seeker and am fairly conservative but like to try and do something that would make the trip memorable and different from our regular lives in a city. In Sydney, that included a horse riding trip through the park in the cool of the morning. We had done river rafting 15 years ago when in Bali as... More

Went rafting with Sobek on both rivers. Ayung is really nice for families, I loved it. From pick-up till drop-off, everything is well organized. The drivers are very friendly and the safety instruction was really clear and good. Sobek cares about your safety! The rafting was fun and the tour was longer than the ones from competitors (you can see... More

The whole trip is good. The only missing point is some coach smoke at the stopping point and there is no way to escape. Some other joiners also smoke. Please set up no smoking zone.

Such a fun day out. Saw monkeys, lizards and other animals which just added to the divine breathy of the jungle floating down the river. Our guide was a great prankster which just added to the fun.
