For our first time rafting it was incredibly great! Booking, getting the equipment and arriving at the spot was very quick and uncomplicated. Our guide seemed very competent and put us in a really good mood. We were all so enthusiastic that we would do it again at any time. The people in the office were also very friendly and accommodating.

Excellent fantastic extra … no words to describe. A must do, if you end up in Slovenia. For sure we will come again. Amazing river with amazing nature. Water is so clear, that you can drink it. Great guide and thx for fun. See you again next year.

Very nice tour with nice serious guides. Safety comes first, which is clear from the people who sail along by canoe. The Soca is breathtakingly beautiful. Wonderful experience gained together with our 14 year old daughter. Highly recommended
