Full description
After being collected from your your hotel in the morning, you will embark on a 1.5-hour drive towards the shores of the upper Urubamba-River. Here, your professional rafting guides will give a safety talk, and provide you with all the proper equipment for rafting. You will then begin your rafting adventure, which will involve you floating down the river for approximately 2.5 hours. In this time you will run class II and III rapids, with the rainy seasons also providing rapids that can even reach class IV and IV+. Finally, you will arrive at the Cusipata River Camp shoreline, where a hot sauna and hot showers will be waiting for you. Here you will also be able to enjoy a full lunch, whilst recovering from your rafting experience. If you are interested in even more adventure in your day however, you can also zip-line across the river. You will return to Cusco at around 5 in the afternoon, and later in the evening, you can view the exciting pictures from your trip at the tour office.

Nice day out, it's a bit of a drive out but the scenery is lovely. Being dry season rapids weren't that difficult, but you still get to do a few fun grade II/III. You'll also have the chance to jump off from a high rock half way through, and guides 'rotate' people so anyone has a chance to stay at the front. The sauna after the trip felt great and lunch was a lovely homemade meal.

We were looking for a real adventure with challenges, and this tour did not disappoint! We really enjoyed the bigger rapids and our very entertaining and knowledgeable guide, Wili. The entire crew was warm, friendly, humorous, and professional. We felt very safe for the entire excursion. The dry sauna is very cool and so are the ziplines. Highly recommend.

The rafting itself was a lot of fun and I felt very safe at all times. The equipment is in need of improvement (wetsuit, neoprene shoes, jacket, helmet): a new acquisition would be worthwhile here. I found the shoes in particular to be very unhygienic. What I also didn't like is that photos had to be purchased in the end (even if not for a lot of money). If you were to send the photos for free, this would certainly have a more positive effect on the tip.
