We ride with our two kinds 7 and 8 years old and we really liked it. The water of the river was very cold but it fits to the weather and the nature was so beautiful, also the staff were so kind. Perhaps good to note that the traveling time from Side to Kuprulu Canyon took about one hour.

The rafting was good fun. We had a great guide and some of the water was quite fast, also enjoyed our stop off to jump off of a board about 3m high into the river. Only thing that let the trip down was how long it all took! You get put together in a group with people who are doing multi activity packages even if you are only doing rafting, which means you have to wait around for ages afterwards. The whole experience took 9 hours from getting picked up until getting dropped off again for around 2 hours off rafting total. The guys who run the experience were nice and not overly pushy on trying to sell us extras which was appreciated. Recommend buying a waterproof phone case (you can get one there for €10) as this will allow you to take your own photos and videos as you go along. All in all a fun and enjoyable experience, even if there were a few too many delays for our liking! The canyon is beautiful also, would recommend.

Great organization and punctual pick-up were prerequisites for this really successful excursion with the whole family. Overall, we were traveling with 6 adults and 2 children and everything worked out perfectly. A really recommendable excursion with thrills and a whole lot of fun. The guide was well prepared and made the tour an unforgettable experience. Thanks for everything and maybe we'll see each other again.
