We booked a 3 week 'private tour' with River Explorers and had a fantastic time.
The tour was all arranged months in advance by e-mail. Boris and Erica responded to all our enquiries promptly and nothing was too much trouble. River explorers arranged all flights and accommodation and transfers without a hitch. We did an Amazon 3 day tour, a six day Apurimac River rafting trip ( fantastic rapids, great guides and food , and felt very safe throughout - shame about the Mozzies!) and the classic 4 day Inca trail to MP - again, great guides , food and organisation. I can't recommend River Explorers highly enough. We will be back...

My husband and I booked a day-trip rafting trip three months in advance. From the moment we booked, Boris and his team were professional and friendly. The staff comes to your hotel for a private "briefing" the night before your trip and tells you everything you need to know and bring. From the minute the van picked us up, it was a private tour on the river for my husband and me! Eduardo and Ronald were our guides and spoke perfect English. They showed us the sights on the way to the river, set out every expectation and were super-safety oriented. They made sure we felt ok, were prepared, and knew exactly what to expect both in and out of the river. They took photos for us, made sure we were safe, and then we had a picnic along the side of the river from Miss Betty. It was the most amazing thing we did in Peru - yes, it was more fun than seeing Machu Picchu.

River Explorers offers a remarkable once-in-a-lifetime rafting excursion that will leave you exhilarated and at times at bit breathless. What sets this company apart is that they use truly experienced guides. This was our first rafting experience and we always felt safe and secure in their hands. They were also genuinely nice fellows who also happen to be talented cooks. The food was adelicious.

River Explorers is your excellent partner for visiting Peru.

The agency handled the pick up, transfer, sightseeing, accommodation and even air tickets. You don't need to know spanish at all, just relax and enjoy the whole trip in Peru. Their arrangements are extremely thoughtful and are somehow more special or prestigious then other agencies. We felt like VIP all the time and everywhere in Peru.

The cost is extremely reasonable. I think it is more or less the same as you made all those arrangements on your own. They are very flexibility and efficient too. In our case, our itinerary in the last week is not confirmed. But they managed to make all the arrangements of the week with only one day notice.

Boris, Erika and the guides of each city are all very helpful and professional. To sum up, River Explorers is not only an agency for rafting in Cusco, he is fantastic expert for tours in Peru.

This rafting trip was my first time rafting and it was a blast! The guides were professional, friendly, and safe. We were outfitted in wetsuits and life vests, given good instruction, and had a great time navigating the rapids. At the end of the trip there was a nice tent set up on the river side and they had prepared a really nice chicken and past lunch forever one. Definitely a day to remember!
