Cost of the trip included pickup and drop off. Price was quoted in USD and fortunately they did have some USD change (although given reluctantly). As with most things in Bali, the quoted price online is probably up for some negotiation. Wish there was simply true pricing (frustration). An enjoyable day despite the fact that our family was split up... More

the water is to shallow, not many place to jump and swim freely.. the underwater soil is too rocky, so if you don't wear any shoes on, it's gonna be hurt.. but the photographer allow us to use his small boat (more like a canoe) it's hard, but it is fun.. and one of my friend saw a snake swimming...

It rained a lot the week before so the river was fast but it's not too deep. It was myself, husband and 9 yo Son. We had a fantastic time lots of laughs the whole way while my Son hummed the Jurassic Park theme. Our guide was great and fun also. He gave us a overview of what to expect.... More

With collection from your hotel, lengthy transfer times, coffee or tea on arrival, lunch and 2 hours of fabulous rafting along 20kms of river for just $35 AUD, it was the best value day we had on Bali. SO much fun! The upper reaches of the river took us through remote areas which looked untouched and life continuing as it... More

I went along two weeks ago, the river was very low and we really got knocked around. Our boat sprung a leak almost at the end and our guide had to pump it up with a small hand pump. When we got to the big drop we were told to sit on the floor of the boat. I was at... More

We booked this activity at our hotel in sidemen. For about €25,- they pick you up, take you on a 10km trip down the river and serve lunch at the end. We had lots of fun and would do it again. Halfway they had us rest for a little bit and you can buy drinks but this was really expensive,... More

The experience wasnt as exciting as I expected. There wasn't much water and theres only 1 drop in the entire route. Its almost like doing a slow boat trip down the river without much excitement. They also asked 12 USD extra to slide 20 meters to the river.

This is a seriously budget outfit. Life jackets look like they have been pulled from a dumpster. Some of them were mouldy and wet from previous excursions. Just one big pile of festering life jacket mess. Helmets were also (guessing) second hand. I had concerns about continuing when I saw the equipment we would be using. My sons desperately wanted...

It was definitely a great place doing water rafting! The water at the river was cooling and we had pit stop in between for a rest and enjoy swimming in the water! There are different companies doing there. So mine was awesome but not the photographer( not sure the company name, but the boat was blue in colour) The staffs... More
