Équipe accueillante et professionnelle. Un parcours varié, dynamique avec des rapides très sympas à franchir et de beaux paysages. Un grand merci à Estefania pour sa bonne humeur et ses efforts pour nous parler en Français. Bref un bon moment pour toute la famille.

We really liked the activity and the companies vibe. However next time, it would be useful to send a more headliner if there is a change in timing (I read the booking again the day before and saw the changed time!! so I called them to check). And unfortunate the water was not too wild, although we still had a lot of fun!

Pour une première fois, c'était super! Les instructions très claires et l'équipe très sympa! Par contre c'est dommage qu'on a pas pu avoir les photos qu'ils nous ont prises pendant l'activité. On nous a dit qu'on allait les recevoir par mail mais on a toujours rien reçu...
