Booked the rafting tour with Guanabana tours but the guys from freakn creakn took us out . Steve and Sam were absolutely sound . They love what they do and this is portrayed in how they run the tour . The rapids were excellent a real adrenaline rush .

We had some snacks half way trough the tour and got our photos two days later . If you want a passionate guide choose these guys and you won’t be disappointed. They even bought us a cold beer at the end .

Our driver was very nice and brought to a Colombian restaurant before we did the tour and stopped again so we could buy snacks coming home . He provided us with water shoes for the tour and had fresh clean towels when we were finished .

He was very informative and told us some of the history about Medellin.

Would definitely recommend this to anyone Looking for a rush

Hello and thank you for your review. We are very happy to hear you had a great time doing rafting in Colombia and that you found all members of our team to be passionate and attentive to detail. Safety and customer service are our number one priorities and we work very hard as a team for everything to go like clockwork, from team members receiving and answering emails and WhatsApps, driver guides that do city pick-ups and long drives to the different countryside locations, the Freakn Creekn guides in the water, guys in media dept that make sure the videos and pics make it from the jungle or mountains to our friends and clients, and many more who work with passion and in unison in all the different areas and depts so our friends and clients can have a great time while in Medellin and Colombia. Our goal is for our friends and clients to leave Colombia wanting to come back and do more fun outdoors activities with us. Regards from the team.

I booked the rafting+paragliding+Guatape tour for my family and they had a blast! The logistics of everything was perfect eg. prompt communication, payment, transportation, timing, guides, along with the actual tour day. It was their first time paragliding and they spent 20 mins up in the air and really appreciated how they were able to enjoy their views. It is also REALLY hard to impress my adventurous brothers, especially since this wasn't their first (or fourth) time rafting or hiking, but they had a fantastic time! They said this rafting was the best they ever had. The tour was an all-day thing and my family also really appreciated the driver who drove them everywhere and the guide who was with them all day.

I didn't get to do this tour myself but definitely will when it's my turn to visit Medellin.

Hello and thank you for your review. It was a great pleasure having your adventure loving family on bundled tour with us doing multiple adventure activities the same day, such as paragliding and rafting, which Colombia has quickly established itself as one of the top places in the world to do so. Starting a few years ago Colombia has been holding yearly paragliding world cup and international class I paragliding championships during the first weeks of January in a small town called Roldanillo, in the state of Valle, yet there is great flying in all corners of the country. Alsolso river sports like white water rafting and kayaking have exploded on to the international scene, attracting top athletes and enthusiasts from all over the world that are flocking to Colombia's secret rivers. Now is a great time to come and do these adventure activities in beautiful unspoiled locations while they remain so. Thank you for pointing out our excellence in logistics, we greatly appreciate the needs of our clients and offer top notch personalised service during our adventure tours. We hope to see you visiting us here in beautiful Colombia too doing adventure activities out in nature, regards from the team.

Our driver was a really interesting person with a ton of life experince. We had been in Colombia for 12 weeks and his english was simply excellent!  We had a great time just driving to the meeting point along the river.
The rafting team was simply excellent!! Guys from Canada, the states and New Zealand. They made sure we had a great time on the raft...and in the water! Really experienced and full of positive energy. The crew photographed and filmed the whole experience.
We had a blast and will never forget this day and and are really exited about the photos and movies

i was refferred to Guanabana by a friend of mine, and I'm glad i listened. The team helped us make history by flying two Helicopters from Medellin to Guatape, to then jump out into the lake, then on to 2 Jet Ski's and 2 Speed boats, and race to our Mega Finca right on the water. I don't think anyone else is capable of making that happen, but Guanabana did!!

Hello and thank you for your review. We were more than happy to organise the logistics of this scene for your channel and happy to see you had a great time. We have a great team with years of experience coordinating all kinds of logistics for tours and expeditions, we use helicopters, planes, boats, bicycles, communication gear etc. and lots more in order to experience adventures and reach far out places and do wild things in the safest most fun way possible, such as your tour where ten guys and girls jumped into Guatapé lake from two formation flying hovering helicopters that took off from Medellin with jet skis and speed boats waiting in the water to continue the fun. Regards from the team.

Our guide Diego made our trip to Medellin a special one. Communication was great, Diego was prompt, friendly, and very helpful as a guide not only for paragliding, but as a native guide to Medellin as well. His stories of living in Medellin, and paragliding over the years were very entertaining.

I felt supremely confident in the competence and safety of this organization, and would recommend them to anyone. Paragliding is an absolute blast, and I am glad to have been able to experience it for my first time in such a special place. Even with the bit of nausea that came with it :) . My girlfriend and I cannot wait to try it again- perhaps again someday in Medellin!

Hello and thank you for your review. Our native paisa guides can be entertaining, growing up in Medellín is guaranteed to give them tons of stories. Paisas are known for being friendly and conversationalist. Our guides have different levels of conversation and fluency, but they all have enough English to communicate in order to take care of all your needs and requirements of our tours. We are happy you enjoyed your paragliding experience and thank you for pointing out how you felt supremely confident in the competence and safety of the Guanabana organisation. We hope to see you again with us in the future, regards from the team.
