We had an amazing day after an amazing month in Peru. Communication from the operator was excellent - faultless!

This was my favorite tour I did while staying in Cusco. The instructors make you feel very comfortable even if you have not rafted before. The zip line is smaller than I thought but still fun. I recommend you bringing flip flops to use after you get out of the water and bring a change of clothes.

Viator staff did a truly wonderful job of arranging this tour including vegetarian lunch. Everything was on time and this tour itself is quite demanding and recommended for people of younger ages..

Go for the rafting. The zipline was just a short added bonus

We booked the rafting and zipling through Viator but were told the local contact was Bamba Experience Inc. We had been on three other tours in Cusco Manu National Park, Machu Picchu and Horseback riding and this was the most professional tour of them all. They were prompt, provided clear instructions in English and Spanish at the start of the day to set expectations and were well coordinated. Many of our other tours had lots of time waiting and very poor communication. They provided all the rafting equipment and wetsuits since the water was very cold. This was the first time my friend had done rafting and she was very comfortable with instructions provided by the guides. I did feel very safe with these guys and had a great time. They also made a simple yet delicious lunch along with tea/coffee. We were warned at the start of the day that if it was raining, we may not be able to do the ziplining. The guides anticipated weather and seamlessly changed the itinerary to get us on the ziplines before it rained. Muchly appreciated. They also did take photos of the rafting and do offer them at an additional fee of 30 Soles. I ended up buying the CD with the other couple. We shared the cost and photos. A couple of the action shots made it worth the purchase. I highly recommend this tour and if I had more time in Cusco would explore other offerings from them. Nothing but praises for them.

This tour was Amazing! The tour guides were very friendly and fun and gave us the best experience we could ask for. Rafting down the river was exciting, they provided a good meal afterwards and a fun zipline adventure after that. Victor was fantastic and guided us through the tour! I'd do it again!

We had a good time on the rafting trip. We didn’t get the bread that was advertised above. I do wish they stated that you needed to bring a towel and swim suit. The tour guides were great and very knowledgeable. I was worried about the water and getting sick but all good. We couldn’t do the zip line because it was raining so don’t plan on it if you go to Cusco in rainy season.

Tour guides were super friendly, and you feel safe rafting with them, especially for first-timers! Dropped a star for a couple of things. Felt that it could have been a bit more organized. Didn't like the fact that after we were finished rafting we had nowhere to change into dry clothes, so either go behind a bush or change in the van. Definitely recommend bringing a pair of flip-flops or sandals, bathing suit, a big towel to dry off, and an extra bottle of water wish they stated all this in their info section!. We never made a stop for homemade bread as described above, but we did get a really nice lunch though after the rafting. The zip-line was a super simple added bonus so don't have high expectations. All in all, was a good time :

This was a great trip. Our tour guide was very good in teaching us how to navigate the river rapids and how to use paddles. For many of us it was the first time white water rafting. The lunch provided was good as well.

The rafting and ziplinning were brilliant and well run, food was okay. Only critisicm is that they took loads of photos but we never got to see them

We had a great time on the rafting trip, but it was quite cold and it started to rain. Since it started to rain, we couldn't do the zip lining but when we got off the raft, we had a team whipping up a delicious lunch for us and some nice hot tea. The crew was very hospitable and kind. Too bad we couldn't do the zip lining!
