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!

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

An amazing experience- was not only informative/interesting but we also had great fun rowing as a team and jumping off the raft into the refreshing lake. Our tour guide was Mario who was lovely and made the day very enjoyable. We were debating booking again a few days later as we had so much fun but it is quite a travel from where we were staying. However , next time we come we will be sure to book again .
