We enjoyed our rafting trip and lunch. However, the driver tasked with getting us back to Seminyak was an idiot. While there is a ton of traffic in Bali, he must have taken the worst possible route. Think we drove all over the island. Then, he drove right past our hotel. When we asked what he was doing, he said he was dropping the other couple off first (we were picked up first so not sure why they got the first drop off). It would have taken another 30 min. to get back to our hotel. So we just got out of the van in the middle of the street. In all, think it took him 3 hours to get us home from Ubud.

5 of us arrive here with big excitement and we got huge of it when see the nature. Going here on December 2011, bit rainy day but its not make us give up! start by go down the stairs to reach the river, get instructions and then start the journey. For after around two hours we get to finish and really spoiled by the view and nature, and a great instructor.

My wife and I were returning to Sobek rafting 18 yrs later and with our 10 yr old son this time. Certainly not as exciting as it was back then as the river is now dammed downstream but great for families with older kids and relatively safe. Downside is the number of rafting companies using the river.

Well organized. Safe and a guide who had knowledge of the fauna and flora. The kids were 3 * 19 and 2 * 23 year olds. They had a great time
