What people are saying about Ötztal

Unforgettable tour! I would recommend everyone to book this tour. She has been the highlight of our trip so far. Special thanks to our tour guides - most of all to Milena. She was the best of them all. The tour was exciting, funny, there was a great atmosphere, it was varied, informative and I felt safe at all times. We also had a lot of fun in the group. I was unsure when booking because I read that it wasn't that adventurous. I can only disagree. Of course, the tour always depends on the water level - but the guides can't do anything about that. I would book them again every year. THANK YOU for this great day!

For me it was the first rafting tour, I can only recommend it. Kudos to Benny, it was really fun working with you. But the other guides are also great.

Beautiful experience, quite adventurous but still suitable for beginners. Also very nice swimming in the river and helpful and friendly guides.
