    Amazing experience and great value for money. We were picked up on time from the hotel as expected. No hassle and agent was easy to reach for any information you may require. Our tour guide i think his name was Dennis was excellent and very friendly. We felt safe all the way. Its a must do trip! Views are ridiculous beautiful. I will strongly advise the team to record some of the views as we did not have phone with us so we couldn’t take any pictures or do any recording.

    Maybe they should incorporate some of the views in the video which I believe many people would love to have . This will also generate more interest in buying the video(USB). I have to say had an issue with my USB as I couldn’t download it or my laptop was unable to read it for whatever reasons. However after contacting the agent it was resolved in 24 hours. Even though I was back home by then they still text me to ask if I managed to download the link or not. Which was a success. Overall the whole experience was excellent with genuine and professional individuals .


    Booked buggy safari and rafting. Both were great fun for a groıp of 8 lads. Very reasonable prices as well. Excellent and timely communication via Whatsapp responding to all queries promptly. Definitely recommend.


    Lots of action & fun. Very professional instructors & amazing landscapes. Communication with the agent was perfect & above all the price was half of what we were offered by the vendors on the street. Highly recommended!


    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.


    Excellent tour company, very good prices and really good communication. We booked rafting trip for 13 people and they brought the voucher to us in our hotel within the hour. Rafting was great fun for all ages bus turned up on time at our hotel, would highly recommend.
