    Our tour operator, Ace Paddlers, were a little difficult to find, given the lack of sign board outside their place. However, the guide was polite and extremely helpful. We experienced 4 rapids, each getting better than the previous. Overall, a great experience!

    Before starting the experience we were given short training about it and there was a trained instructor with us. The live jackets were in good condition and my friend fell into the water and the instructor quickly dragged him back to the raft.

    The experience of rafting was memorable. The thrill of rafting is amazing and the moment the raft gets into a challenging level the more the fun begins. It was quite tricky as well, as we don’t want to fall into the water.
