Our day was just superb!! Joined with friends and by the end we all agreed that we were absolutely satisfied, let alone excited! The jeeps at the beginning of the day set the tone for an ultra-adventurous experience. The off road track was incredible. Many things to see, small villages, few places of interest and of course a beautiful forest. Then we went for rafting, and it was exceptional. The guys are professionals. They explain everything gave us equipment and entered the boats. We laugh a lot, so much fun. The river water was cold but still we got used to it. It was suberb!
It was a brilliant idea to combine these two into one day. The agency did a great job in organizing everything. There was a tour guide with us and she was telling us facts about the area and updates on the schedule. The off-road driving with the jeeps was very nice. At a point we got water guns and had so much fun. We had some stops and took some nice photos also. Rafting was amazing, it was my first time trying and now I’m really into this experience. The setting was magical. Food at the restaurant was also ok. The combination of activities is a great way to spend a day in the countryside.
