My girlfriend and I loved this trip. A great scenic route through the canyons with a fantastic tour guide called Antonio. He was learning English (and I wanted to practice my Spanish) so he helped me with my Spanish and I helped him with his English. Really lovely guy, made you feel very welcomed and comfortable! Would highly recommend. Just as a heads up to see the wild otters, we took the morning slot and apparently they are more active in the afternoon. So if you’re going to see the otters, I’d suggest booking the afternoon time. Many thanks Jack & Kayleigh

The trip is a beautiful escape from the beaches and city life. The local tour operator team was friendly. Jose Manuel delivered the tour in Spanish, as stated, but was happy to translate and explain things in English. I went with my two teenage sons who found the trip enjoyable and interesting. Great value for money and you may be lucky to see otters, turtles, great cormorants and herons around the River Segura.

We had the best day rafting with the excellent guides, Ismail and Antonio. Everything was very well organized and ran smoothly. There are no currents or rapids, just a calm journey through stunning scenery. I never knew Murcia was this green. Can't recommend this tour enough!

excellent tour guides,made it fun and easy to understand,well worth it.

It was very nice and the travelguids were very friendly and funny.
