We are two families with children between 7-11 who had asked River Explorers to help us with our 8 day vacation in Peru, Cusco area. It turned out to be a great decision! We were picked up at the airport in Cusco by the guide Juan Carlos and the driver Wilfredo. From this moment until we ended our trip we felt that we got the best guide and driver! The classic tours of Sacred valley became very interesting for us all with the detailed information and great answers to our and especially the kids questions. Juan Carlos has kids himself and he understood that if our kids are happy and amused so are we! Wilfredo handled the bad roads and sometimes heavy traffic well so we could feel safe. The grand finale of our week was the white water river rafting on Rio Urubamba. Here we also met Eduardo and the rest of the rafting crew including the guys who were in the safety kajaks. The safety instruction before the rafting was great and also fun for the kids so they kept their focus. The rafting was great on a level which was perfect for the kids who hadn't done river rafting in this way before. Only trouble was the coldness of the water in the river but that we can't blame the guides for. Instead they tried to help it out with good wet suits. Miss Betty cooked warm soup and lomo saltado which warmed us up afterwards and the sun came out and everything was more than great! Thanks to River Explorers we could fully enjoy our trip and didn't have to think about transportation or other less fun things! Everything worked perfectly.

Very well organized trip with all equipment needed supplied - not just the necessary safety stuff such as helmets, life jackets and wet suits but also shoes, shorts and warm top. Eduardo gave us an excellent briefing before the trip and very thorough instructions before we started actually rafting as well as practising all the instructions again on the river. Ronald on the safety kayak also kept us amused and was an added level of safety. Lunch at the end of the trip was brilliant, superb trout. We were also the best equipped trip on the river. 100% recommend River Explorers.

Reaching the top was so rewarding. Try to go when it is not raining but even with rain it was beautiful. When we went it was cloudy but by 10 it has cleared up and the views were amazing.
