“I was amazed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

The river that Bali View offers is in Klung Kung;which is far from tourist centers but definitely whileworthy.IT's a beautiful 12-km long flow through canyons, rice field which guarantee a splendid nature view all year round. It's a 2h rafting through a interestingly fast current and a 4-m tall water fall.We have so much fun and the guide is very very skillful and frendly.
You will have a short break in the middle of the way, under a small water fall; where you can buy a drink (20k rupiah for a coke), the guide gives you all the instructions you need before the journey, sandals, wallet, watches... are safe in waterproof bag that he carries along, clean clothes are with your driver though. There's a lunch at the destination point and your driver will wait for you here to drive you home.
Bali View works with no agent, so the price is good 30USD/pax,no sur charge whatsoever

“Awesome Trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Many thanks to Manggo who recommended us to try out river rafting! Unlike other 'salesperson', he patiently explain to us how the whole experience will be like and what we will be expecting. The staff were friendly, kind and nice. Throughout the event, we are well taken care of. The entire event was 2.5hr just the rafting itself. It's kinda nice experience, surrounding by the nature. Clear and cooling water, a nice place for photo taking too. “Awesome” is the only word to describe the whole event.

I would definitely go for the 2nd time if there is a chance. Two tumb up..

“Thrilling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

There were 7 of us in the group and they charged us $40 each (children and adults) and lunch was provided at the end.Started at10:30am and went for about 21/2 hours. Several companies operate from the same location.
The river was a class 3 ( 5 is hardest) It was quiet an exciting ride, not adrenalin pumping all the way but had its moments. Several people fell in and were recovered safely as the river is not deep. They allow a max of 5 people per raft, including the guide. We stopped about half way next to a nice waterfall for a short refreshment break. Drinks were not part of the package, which was fine with us as it wasn't expensive. Sold by an old man with an eskee in a shack.Cold Bintang beer!!
There are two dams,several low bridges, lots of fast rapids and obstacles on the way. The first dam was too high,6m, and we had to walk around it. The secon one near the end was 4m and was a nice end to a great day.
The guides were also very friendly and fun loving.

“Rafting with Bali View Rafting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

This is my 4th trip to Bali and each time i will raft with different operators and i must say they all went pretty well except for this latest trip in June.
The experience with Bali View left many of us unhappy , here are some of the examples
1) The guides during briefing , suggest that we should offer them a tip for their hardwork - who wouldn't , if the trip is gd and fun , of course anyone would be more than willing to offer them a tip for a job well done.
2) Guide seems disinterested . They seem to be in a hurry , we had 5 boats in total but we hardly had a chance to raft together except the rest point where we met.
3)Showers facilities are horrible , 1 open air and 2 closed shower area which only 2 showers were working .
4)One of my friends who could spk Malay claims that the guides were heard planning something naughty to the toilet that the ladies in my group were using - we cannot confirm that as we didnt spot anything .
We all leave in a huff, without having lunch - cant imagine how good can the lunch be when the overall service is so bad .

This is one place that we wont be heading back , strongly recommend other operators .
