What people are saying about Side

Great experience! I booked rafting with my partner and loved it. Our guide Hasan was just great, the Tarzan of rafting. The other guides also made a professional impression. From the transfer back to the hotel, everything went great, the transfer journey is a bit adventurous, as there are other rules that should be taken into account. On site you will then be divided into different linguistic groups for the briefing. You should also note that there may still be costs on site for water shoes (if no closed shoes are available) or cell phone protection and the like. Drinks are also chargeable. Lunch is included in your booking. You can also book other activities in addition to rafting, but you have to be aware that you have to wait for the others because you are traveling in a group. In our case we were able to return to the starting point and pass the time wonderfully there

Really good day out, excellent value. Instructors are brilliant the one on one makes it really enjoyable and if you follow a few simple instructions your nerves soon dissappear. Was really impressed at the care they take of you once you are in the water. Great facilities on the boat and a really delicious simple lunch.

Great landscape, great rafting guide and a lot of fun!! In addition to the brilliant experience, we found the implementation really good. Although we had only booked rafting, we didn't have to take part in any unnecessary waiting times, since we weren't so lucky with another provider 2 years earlier.

All in all we had a lot of fun with Tornado Rafting as a couple. Our guide Maher was great.

Fantastic event. Great team, which made this trip really good fun! We loved it.
