Con más de 20 años de experiencia en el rafting, nuestros grupos miradas Untird las expectativas eran altas. Y esta compañía entregado! ! ! Seguridad era la prioridad número uno, y la diversión era el segundo. Nos navegable una sección de clase III, pero aquí los ríos son un volumen alto, así que era más como un III+. Nos acogieron de nosotros, siempre comida fabulosa y tenía unas historias. Se discutieron la flora local, la historia y la cultura de la gente. Estos chicos saben los ríos, y saben cómo bajar de forma segura con la máxima diversión! Esperamos mostrar la misma amabilidad en Colorado algún día. Mejores guías nunca!

Con Kayak Ecuador me han tratado tan bien. Me encanta el detalle de la seguridad, la apertura, la amabilidad que tratan a todo el mundo. Eres un amigo desde el primer hola. Te hacen sentir como en casa que no quieren irse.
