I booked the rafting tour via WhatsApp contact in their website.The guy was bad at English and i had a hard time communicate with him.He gave me a price of IDR279,000 per person for Songa Bawah rafting and min is 5 person.We are a group of 4 person so have to pay for the price of 5 person.

However I was told that the price for foreigners is IDR400,000 per person when we reached the rafting base camp.The staff at the base camp told me this is not mentioned in their website as the information in their website is outdated.I was like wth.They seriously need a better marketing person with better English communication skills.But we successfully bargained with them to pay the price of 4 person instead of 5 person.

We took 15mins truck to the start of the ratfing place after they equipped us with the life jackets and helmets.There were two guides followed us in this rafting and they were really nice and professional.They were the one who do the paddling most of the time.This is the first time i've ever met a guide who always stop the rafting in the midway just to help us taking the photos.

The rafting process was not really exciting and the not much rapids throughout the whole trip.But the guides were passionate enough to create a fun trip for us.

We were served with fresh coconut juice and local fried tapioca with coconut fillings in the mid of rafting.The snack was indeed delicious and the fresh juice was refreshing.

The rafting company prepared a sumptuous lunch which full of the local cruisine at the end of the raft.We really enjoyed the meal and we finished all of the food.

Overall this is a memorable trip for me and my friends.I would recommend people to go for this trip if you visit Probolinggo.

"Boom Boom!" was the call for us to drop to the raft floor, paddles up and hold on!! Four of us with our two Songadventure guides set off down the rapids.Jungle scenery flashed by.... rescue teams at the ready down stream incase we had a spill.
We knew from the outset this was going to be a different experience to rafting we had done before in NZ and Canada. February air temperature was warm so wet suits were not required and the water temp refreshing. River access was an easy 1 kilometer walk and the Songadventure team transported our raft down to the start point.
A great way to experience this area of Indonesia from our Holland America Cruise. Songadventure efficiently arranged pick up from and return to the Probolinggo terminal.

This adventure is totally insane. Rafting along great river featured with bat caves and waterfalls. Guides are very skillful and helpful. Prepare your lower body because this is very demanding to access start point and end point. Hopefully i can be back to raft again

Because previously had felt rafting in Kasembon Malang which currents are very challenging, so enjoy Songa Adventure so bland. Because it is not challenging at all the flow of his river. Just a waterfall along the river is quite beautiful and treat my disappointment.

Best white water rafting at Pekalen, Probolinggo by Songa Adventure. Their team is awesome and efficient. There 4 life guides but I remember only 3 of them. Rahmaen with us in the boat, Andi taking pictures, Mas Juned, The Bat Cave, waterfall curtain is very beautiful. We boat toppled but thanks to their rescue team which is very fast in sction. We enjoyed the rafting and we would to go again. We are served a traditional local lunch which was very delicious. Thanks Songa Team. Highly recommended.
