An unforgetable experience!!!
 
This is a highly recommended life experience not to be missed! We had excellent guides who were not only very professional and knew the river well but gave us a wonderful meal with all the trimmings to go with it while camping! Equipment was top quality and they really think of everything! Our family so enjoyed the company and we will definitely be back! Thank you Cristian and Eric till we meet again! :)
