I took the Ayung River Rafting package in Feb 2017. The water was muddy, they said it was because of the recent flooding. Other than that, everything else was enjoyable. The facility and the staff were excellent. The scenery along the river was serene. They provided free transport from and to Kuta. They also provided buffet lunch.

This is like one of the best rafting experience in my life. Coyote, the guide is so excellent! I am also impressed the teamwork between guides when there is a big guy in another boat fell off and how professional they handle it. This makes me so confident about how trained they are! I recommended sobek to enjoy thw best... More

We've rafted several times including the Grand Canyon. This fun is not to be missed! This outfitter did a nice well organized trip and the pavilion and showers at the end are appreciated. I would highly recommend for a day of fun. The water was low the day we went but it didn't stop us from having a blast!

The bike ride starts at Kintamani at the top of a mountain with beautiful views. From there you will ride your bike (mostly) downhill for about two hours trough padi fields, jungle paths, small roads and seeing and meeting things and ppl off the beaten track, all with splendid views. You' ve probably have never ride a bike at this... More

We had an excellent experience with Sobek team at Telega Waja River, our guide has been excellent in guiding our family with two children. Sobek is very organised, safety checks were done and training was given at the calm water at the starting point. If it is your 1st time doing water rafting at Telega Waja, Sobek is a great... More

I did the rafting with my wife and it was really fun. Have done with few other companies, both family leisure and team building activities. I found Sobek is one of the best. I was guided by Sona and he is very creative. He also speaks Japanese as we were on the same boat with a Japanese couple. This guy... More

We took the Ayang water rafting. If you are paying by card they will give you a high exchange rate (fixed rate for every week!) and for sure you will find a much better rate outside. Second, they will add 2% from the total cost as they call it(credit card fee!!). We booked for 79$ each person (lunch included). I... More
