Value for money The zip line and the rafting were both enjoyable experiences. They were loads of fun. To top it all, after the rafting experience one can then warm-up in an home-made Sauna!

Amazing rafting trip What an incredible experience! I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is considering it. Rafting on the Apurimac River was beautiful and the rapids were exhilarating. Our guides Willy and Gabriel were also absolutely amazing. They were both very experienced and made us feel safe throughout the experience. Plus, they were genuinely friendly and fun to hang out with. They even sent us photos and videos from their GoPro after the trip! Overall, this is a top tier tour company and I feel more than comfortable recommending it to everyone!!

Rafting Apurimac with Amazonas Explorers The Apurimac is sporty with incredible scenery. In 3 days, other than camping, I don't think we ever went more than 10 minutes between rapids. Six portages and watching one where the guides sent the rafts down unmanned, a wave caught the 6 man raft and tossed it upside down onto rocks several feet above the river level, glad I wasn't in it. You don't want to do anything stupid here, it's a long way to the hospital. The only other people we saw were 3 gold miners sluicing with 5 gallon buckets, who told us it was a 3 day walk for them to get from the top of the canyon down to the river. At the top of the canyon before driving down to the river my i-phone read 13,400 feet elevation.Our outfitter was Amazonas Explorers, the guides professional and food good. The rafting equipment was top notch with foot pockets, which you need.Amazonas Explorers organized another 14 days of Peruvian sight seeing, from Paracas on the coast, through Cusco and the sacred valley, and on to the Tambopata eco-lodge in the amazon. Everything was on time, all of the employees were extra friendly and the guides spoke excellent english, put us up in excellent hotels, good food, just a first class organization. I asked the different guides how long they've worked there, and almost all of them had been with the company for 10-15 years We sprang for the private guides and transportation, good choice. One other thing, the airport at lake titicaca went down for maintenance at the last minute and after some frantic emails, Amazonas Explorers changed the itenerary. got us different hotels and kept the ball rolling, the only extra cost was for changing Latam tickets. I was impressed they were able to pull that off during high tourist season and didn't soak us for it. Hat tip for that.

Excellent rafting for beginners This activity included river rafting, lunch and ziplining. The river rafting was an incredible experience with class 1-3. This was ideal for our family with teens. The teens had never been rafting before so it was a fun experience for them without much danger. We were followed by a safety raft in case any went overboard. Américo was a great river guide and gave great instructions on what needed to be done. After rafting there were showers and bathrooms available as well as a sauna. We were then treated to a nice lunch followed by ziplining. I had never ziplined across a river so it was a great experience even though the climb up to the first line was not very safe. If you are doing this activity with children I highly recommend skipping the ziplining. Unlike other eating trips we have done there was no one trailing along to take pictures although there was a GoPro mounted on the raft. There was also no one to take pictures during the ziplining.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND -- AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! SO MUCH FUN!!! Cannot recommend this experience enough! Everyone was very informative, approachable, patient, and tons of fun to work with! As first-time rafters, we had no idea what to expect. After an ~1:40h drive to the lodge we received information regarding what to expect and safety measures. Everyone was given gear and then we headed out to the river, where we spent ~2h (which was the perfect amount!). Our guide Willy was absolutely awesome -- he made sure everyone had a GREAT time all the while ensuring everyone felt safe. Views were spectacular. After rafting we had time to spend relaxing in the sauna (!!) and showers before a tasty, traditional Peruvian lunch in the lodge. Zip line was a fun "bonus" activity at the end!

Brilliant 2 day rafting and rainbow mountain experience We did the 2day/1night whitewater rafting and rainbow mountain tour. The rafting was great fun and had bilingual safety talks and guiding. The rainbow mountain tour was beautiful. Our guide, Juan Carlos was exceptional, being both our rafting leader and our guide for rainbow mountain. Cusipata river lodge was very comfortable and the food was very good.
