It was MEGA fun. You need some fitness to do this activity. It requires carrying the tube to the river (about 2 minutes walk). My son is 8 and quite fit, he carries his own tube and managed the river by himself because we were drift apart as soon as we enter the river. It's very safe, he capsized twice in the white water section of the river. He managed to stay afloat and get back in the tube on his own as I was too far to help.

From the bus pick up to the bus drop off, it was a highly professional and fun experience. Tom and Carlos went way above and beyond. They were both highly attentive, kind, encouraging and humorous. They made the experience highly safe and fun. My friend and I severely struggled but they were exceedingly helpful. A fun experience. A certain level of fitness required.

Great for kids under 10 and first timers. Was expecting a long continuous tubing experience, versus getting out and walking back up the river and doing the same rapids. But it was great for son who was doing it for first time. Andy, Sarah and Kai were great guides.
