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.
