What people are saying about Region of Murcia

I can’t recommend this activity enough. The whole family loved it! The guides were great - friendly and very informative about the local fauna and flora. What a wonderful way to spend a few hours gently drifting down the river. There were also a couple of opportunities to dive in and swim in the cooling waters. The history of the cave paintings were fascinating and the local ecology was also very interesting. Great value for money!

Good family fun. There are local caves that you can visit at the same. And the meeting point restaurant is worth stopping at after the rafting.

Very fun activity. River was quieter than expected, but that certainly didn't detract from it. Very nice guides.

Very friendly, nice family excursion... very beautiful landscapes and a Super guide!!! to recommend !!!

Rolig, ikke forvent rafting , mer padling. Men veldig gode guider og fin tur. Fint å få bade i elven
