Despite their good intentions, this supplier is far from prepared to be accountable for their customer's safety. Please choose from the other dozens of companies that provide rafting and zip-lining tours in Cusco...or choose them at your own risk. Tbis is my story: Once at the river, hey offer a quick zip-lining experience to get you "in the mood" and get the adrenaline running before hitting the water Cool idea, yes...but... They have a bag of old, dirty gloves, for customers to use as a brake on the zip-line. From this bag each client, without prior explanation, has to take one to do the activity. All gloves are in deplorable condition and no one from the tour staff takes the trouble to even check that everyone receives a proper glove and in good condition. My girlfriend did not find a glove of her size and because of the hurry in which they made us go, and because of the absolute lack of supervision, she threw herself into the zip-lining, the glove fell down halfway and she had a severe burn in her hands and feet caused by the cable. Despite seeing my girlfriend bleeding and scared, the organizers, far from assisting and offering solutions, when confronted by me, were annoyed giving pathetic excuses, and continued the tour as if nothing had happened. It is not true that they pick you up at the hotel: They send a person and you have to walk up to 8 blocks to get on an old, smelly and overloaded bus with all the other participants of the tour, The "fun social lounge" they mention is nothing more than a ranch with flies. The food is bad. The "extra" drinks they offer are super expensive. In the end, we had fun, but it was not for the organizer, but for the group of tourists who were in the group with whom we laughed and shared fun moments. Traveling friend: If you go to Cusco, do not miss the rafting on the Urubamba River, but do yourself a big favor: DO NOT hire this company. There is another bunch of companies that do the same, and it is likely that some of them can offer better security conditions or at least some level of professionalism ... things that this company absolutely lacks.
Great experience! The home where you travel to for entering the water is occupied by a sweet family, who take care of you as much as they can. Ziplining across the river was included at no cost too. The rafting was semi-intense, but the guide made sure we weren’t in any danger.
