Fun Activity

Whitewater rafting was fun! Don, the guide, was amazing. He made the trip safe and exciting. He was very knowledgeable about the river. Lee was also a cool staff member because he was welcoming, and he let me borrow a sunglass strap for the activity. He also provided us with detailed safety information before the task. Thank you Beyond Limits!

Excellent exciting experience

It was excellent. The guide was very nice and professional. He made many exciting situations using his professional skills for us to enjoy; he communicated with us very patiently all the way; the journey on water is long enough (about 2 hours) and he never showed rushing to the end. The water quality was very good; we jumped into water to swim a few times at different points on the way. It's a very good experience.

I’m not one who usually leaves reviews, but this experience far surpassed my expectations. The trip was unbelievably exhilarating. Lee, our guide, made sure we got the most out of every rapid, bump, and swirl. This was a trip of a lifetime!!! I highly recommend this experience to those who enjoy adventurous outdoor fun.

Spaßig und kostspielig

Das Rafting war ein tolles Erlebnis. Es ist insgesamt aufgrund des Trinkgeldes von 15-20% der Gesamtsumme eine recht teure Angelegenheit.
