    It was a blast! Never have I ever had so much fun on an excursion before. I would totally recommend it to all sporty, adrenaline-seeking people who just love to do crazy and fun activities.
    People of Express Rafting & Buggy are amazingly trained, I felt safe every step of the way. They are cheerful and playful and everything that one would look for in an adventure like that.

    I never even knew that rafting and buggies could be so much fun. Thank you all! It was the best time for me in a long while. Thank you! Thank you!
