My daughter and I had a lot of fun. The confirmation of the pick-up took place after a few minutes via WhatsApp. The pickup was on time and the guide friendly and multilingual. The bus was older, but the access road to the mountains was being upgraded and there weren't too many curves. It had rained the day before, so we drove the buggy through a lot of puddles. The operation with automatic was very easy. Then we went 14km through the canyon in a rubber dinghy. The view was picturesque and especially at the front you got really wet. Luckily we had rented wetsuits. It is best to bring your own bathing shoes. But you can also borrow them. In between there was a break with the possibility of crossing the river by cable car for 8 euros. The final lunch was delicious (grilled chicken, noodles, rice, salad). You can buy a video of the rafting. Great nature and adventure - highly recommended!

I recommend everyone to do this tour! The pure driving time with your own buggy is approx. 1 1/2 h and apart from the 1st break you drive continuously! My advice to everyone is to dress in really old clothes, pack a cloth mask and sunglasses! :) Otherwise you can get the last two things for 4 EUR each on site. At the end you can buy all the pictures for EUR 12 and they will be sent to you immediately by e-mail. Since we know significantly different prices and think this price for about 42 pictures is great! In contrast to others with a total of 4 hours, this tour is also really pleasant, since we are not fans of being on the road with such predetermined groups all day! :) From Side Kumköy you drive about 40 minutes to the starting point! Warm greetings

Great organization and punctual pick-up were prerequisites for this really successful excursion with the whole family. Overall, we were traveling with 6 adults and 2 children and everything worked out perfectly. A really recommendable excursion with thrills and a whole lot of fun. The guide was well prepared and made the tour an unforgettable experience. Thanks for everything and maybe we'll see each other again.

It's fun, but a lot of dust gets in your eyes in dry weather - even with safety goggles. All clothing must then go into the washing machine - including the shoes. In hot weather, it is best to only ride in swimwear and a hat / sunglasses and then take a shower on site.

Great guides. Exciting excursion and still suitable for children.
