Great time on the river and good laughs

An absolute blast. Brilliant.felt safe at all times but also exhilarating.nThe waterfalls were a great added bonus. although a tip would be to wear light footwear up to the falls.

Fun way to spend the day in Chiangmai!

Our driver and main guide Tom was friendly and funny! His English was excellent and his experience(15years) showed as he was very professional and knowledgeable.nnHe picked us up from our hotel, stopped a couple more time for additional passengers, and then we got to the main base camp in about an hour. After a thorough safety briefing, we were off into the river in our rafts. The experience was exciting and fun. Each boat had another guide and ours was Bank. He was super nice and a pro at steering the raft. The rapids were fun but I wish there were more as we had a great time!nnAfter the rafting, we had lunch of fruit, pad thai noodles, and drinks(water, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate). Then we enjoyed some time hiking to a few waterfalls from the top of which you could slide down. That was very enjoyable as well!nnOverall a great experience and the guides, especially Tom, made it a great way to spend the day in Chiangmai! Khob khun jaow!

Mike who picked us up at the hotel was within time frame they provided. All staff's English was good and easy to understand. The guides were funny and very knowledgeable. We were provided a safety lesson that was easy to understand. All participants were provided and fitted for life jackets and safety helmets. The lunch was very good. nThe 2 other ladies I was with and myself really enjoyed this excursion, I have already recommended it to other people.nThe only complaint we had was the rafting was too short.nnAnne Agern

Incredible experience.

We had an amazing day doing the White Water Rafting experience. It's a very well organised event you get picked up from your hotel, once arrived you are given lunch with water or coke to drink. There's toilets and a place to change before being given a safety brief, and then you're in the water. At the other end, there are showers and more refreshments and all your personal gear that is driven down to the end point for you.nnI can not recommend this experience enough. All of the staff take great care of you. The guides are very experienced and capable, as well as being fun and good-natured, which makes the whole experience even more enjoyable. Your enjoyment and safety are clearly a top priority to them.nnIf I were to do this again, I would 100% go with the same company I can't fault them.nnThank you once again for an amazing day!

Fun and Enjoyable!

The guides were very friendly and helpful. Made the experience extremely enjoyable :) The waters were in our favour, and I really enjoyed the harder portions of the river. Totally worth it!

Great experience!

Experience was worth it. River guides gave very thorough safety instructions, and having kayak rescue with us made me feel safe the entire time. The rafting was exciting, there were some rapids that had a bit of a drop in the middle section which made it worth it for the adrenaline junkies. The meal was enjoyable and nutritious, although I wish it was after the rafting rather than before. If you consider going, remember to bring a towel; there is a place to shower at the end of rafting but no towels are provided.

Twisty turny river funny

Ridiculously fun rafting experience even though we are in dry season, very fun rapids and incredibly experienced river guides. We got to go in two person rafts as no one else booked. Got to do a cliff dive, and swim and float down the river

Very cool!

A really cool day! Nice people and a good river! Little bit of a long ride with the car, but they pick you up at your hostel.

Nice balance of exciting and fun

Very well organised and great fun. Our skipper was excellent as were the rest of the team combining thrills, with fun, whilst always safe. The river was not at its highest but enough water to provide some thrills on the way down. The guides are very professional and know the river inside out and had a good sense of humour.
