“Great All Around”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We are so glad we went with Sobek, we highly recommend Sobek. This rafting company provides a longer ride, a total of 16 km. A lot longer than most of the other rafting companies like Bali Adventures hence you get the most of your money's worth. Being the first rafting company also means that the guides are experienced and prioritise safety without compromising on fun and excitement. Along the way, we bumped into tours from another company and their rafts got stuck at one of the rapids, ours went by smoothly the entire way. We were also taken for a pit stop halfway through the river and went cliff jumping from a nearby rock which was great fun. Our guide West was skilled and funny.

“Great Experience with Young Kids”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We booked via amazingbalitours with good rate for 2+2. Though the tour agent confirmed that kids aged above 6 years can accompay with parents, we initially worried a bit. However after seeing 5 years old girl, my kids 7 and 9 were excited and confident. The guide (Name Monkey) was awesome. He entertained the kids and took care of their safety. Going down to the river is around 356 steps.. and coming up is around 300. So take your time to reach there if you are not fit. You can take your cameras as the guide brings his waterproof bag also with small money for the guide and drinks. It was around 12 Kms and took an hour to finish. Lunch was also included. Really amazing and my kids enjoyed a lot. We can say its one of the best tour in our Bali trip.

“Good decision to go with them!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Hotel booked a different tour company. I looked up TA reviews of Sobek & booked them. The team was knowledgeable & helpful. They were very particular about the safety of everyone on board. The entire team is conscious of their surroundings & ensure that the tourists dont trash the place or the river. Highly recommend this team. Chilli who was our captain did a fine job!!
