The pure rafting is a lot of fun, the water is refreshingly cold, really great in summer. But if it has less than 30 degrees ambient temperature you should put on neoprene. Otherwise, waiting and driving around annoys a lot of people. Of the 9 hours you are on the go, the rafting is only about 2 hours. The rest is driving the bus, waiting, explaining, taking a break, waiting again, etc. The food was good. All in all worth the 20€ per person, if it was more expensive I wouldn't do it anymore

Very good and inexpensive tour over several hours. Waiting times here and there...but absolutely within limits. Rafting was great fun! Ibrahim was super friendly and a great tour guide. You can leave your backpack and mobile phone etc. on the bus. Bus driver paid close attention to who goes on the bus to get something. Top!! only take something with you if you have waterproof packaging. Fanny pack works, I wouldn't recommend bigger. Normal shoes or bathing shoes recommended. You're actually constantly wet during the tour, which is very pleasant at 36 degrees. You can swim here and there. Water cold but wonderfully fresh!! No aggressive selling of videos etc. at the end. Video costs almost 25€. Drinks around two euros per hour ... is okay. Highly Recommended!

Nice tour. Not blatantly action-packed, but suitable for everyone. Therefore clear recommendation. The negative thing is that you have to pay another good 20 for the necessary shoes, handcuffs and glasses strap (all optional). At the end of the day, the drinks that were consumed during the day also have an impact.
