“Apurimac Rafting”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I did a great Rafting trip with River Explorers in the most beautiful canyon on the best river of the world - the Apurimac!! The service with River Explorers was great. First of all I the professional guides made me feel safe even in the big rapids. The atmosphere was relaxed and we had a lot of fun during this trip, the food couldn't be better as it is cooked on a wood fire below a sky full of stars. What was really important to me was the environmental consciousness of the whole team, we didn't leave any traces on our romantic campsites on the riverbank. I really recommend a River Rafting Tour with River Explorers on Apurimac for those who want to have an unforgettable experience with amazing nature, nice and funny people, plenty of adrenaline and lots, lots of fun.

“A pleasure to work with”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

I am a tour manager and have been sending my groups with River Explorers for the last year with my current company and worked with them for about 5 years previously. They have been great. All of my clients have been happy with their service and most importantly they are incredibly safety conscious. I just had them move the location of my group's rafting to a safer section of the river even though it's further and ultimately costs them more in transport, time, etc... The owner, Boris is genuinely interested in the well-being of his company and his clients and it shows in his service. You'll also be pleasantly surprised by your lunch :) I highly recommend them.

“A very service-oriented tour company!!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I did the tour package that included Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley, Lake Titicaca, etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was a little worried about getting to the right places at first, especially when travelling to Lake Titicaca. But sure enough, like Boris said, there was someone waiting at the bus station in Puno for my arrival. I got the sense that the tour guides promoted the interaction between everyone on the tour which was nice... the trip was made more enjoyable by getting to know other travellers. Peru is an amazing country but definitely check it out with a reliable travel company like River Explorers!

“Great experience! Make sure Boris has related all the dates and other info to the people on the ground.”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

We had a great lares trek with river explorers. It was a group of 4 inexperienced hikers and the hike was challenging but our guide Jose was there to help us the whole way. We had a slight mix up with our start date because Boris (who owns the company but lives in Denmark) did not tell the people on the ground in Cusco about the change. However Jose provided us with a great alternative first day and everything worked out thanks to Jose. Also, we had specified twice that there be no pork but there was. The food was excellent however.
