We had the great pleasure of rafting with skilled Mathias who contributed to an amazing experience. Mathias suggested a lot of different games which made the ride a lot more fun such as rodeo, balance on top, teambuilding exercises etc.

Our river guide, Alex, made our entire day. He’s knowledgeable, safe, funny and so personable. We have whitewater rafted in several places before, and can tell you that the river people do it right. They kept us entertained while constantly scanning the rapids, us and each other. They had us HUSTLE to paddle but it was so much fun. This IS the best way to see the jungle! Thousands of years of fauna, of growth right in front of you. It’s overwhelming. We saw toucans, falcons, otters swimming and the biggest bird nests ever. When the water is down, you’ll get solid class III rapids and a thrill! When the water is up, it’s one heck of a ride! Thank you River People for a wonderful experience that we’ll never forget.

The crew at River People are so clearly highly skilled and knowledgeable that the entire trip was one of enjoyment without any room for trepidation or uncertainty. The white water rafting is fun because it’s scary, sure- but we always felt entirely safe and taken care of. Our limits were pushed and we felt hugely rewarded for the times our guide knew when we could handle a little bit more. If you ask Viktor if you can ride a boulder, he’ll oblige :) The scenery was unbelievable. Truly. The lodge itself very quickly feels like home. The staff are all warm and eager to help with any queries and the cabins themselves are clean, comfortable and finished to a very high standard. Our stay was the height of a two week trip through Peru and Ecuador and we’re already keen to return. Gear was in good condition. Also, the chips and guacamole deserve a special mention. Full marks.

I regularly do river rafting in different countries. This trip organised by Tim (River People) in Tena is one of the best I have ever done. The rafting was sage and a lot of fun, the river and the surroundings were gorgeous as we saw amazing forests, some wildlife and beautiful waterfalls. The lunch was delicious. All in all a very memorable trip down a beautiful river - I hope I get to do it again. Very friendly, safe and professional. What else do you want. Dimple

Had the opportunity to do some white water rafting, take a jungle tour and enjoy the accommodations. From start to finish, the experience was amazing. The family who owned it took great lengths to ensure every aspect of our trip went beyond any reasonable expectation. There is not enough space on trip advisor to be able to adequately explain how incredible the entire experience was - from service to activities. If only they had a 6 star rating...
