    The rafting tour was great fun with the best price online. 16 Euros per person including lunch far cheaper than the prices offered by the hotel reps. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The guides were great fun as well. The river and surrounding scenery were beautiful. The lunch was ok. We had lots of laughs even getting pushed in the cold river was fun. Highly recommended.
