Well suited for beginners. All equipment was provided and there was a clear introduction. The ride was easy to get through even for inexperienced participants, even if their arms were a little limp the next day. The river had many calm spots, but also some with a bit more action. Thanks to the accompanying guide, you always felt safe and well instructed. Pictures were taken of the ride which can be purchased for a reasonable price with no pressure being put on to buy the pictures. All in all a very exciting and pleasant tour. We only had to be careful when approaching, because the meeting point through GetYourGuide was not 100% correct, you have to drive through the street to the end. But that should also work for others like it does for us. You can then park for free at the provider.

We (together with my daughter of 16) were supposed to go paragliding first Thursday, but because there were unexpected crosswinds, they didn't think it was safe enough. Easily made a new appointment for this morning (Saturday) after having to wait in the nice eatery upstairs, cup of cappuccino offered by them. And then made a beautiful flight! Super service and nice paraglide guide! Did nice trucks and were allowed to drive themselves.

This was a beautiful zoo and the views from the hunger berg were delightful. You need to be able to walk up some fairly steep inclines at the zoo as it seems to keep going up forever, but it has to come back down again!

Great rafting experience with quick and exciting rapid sections, and then the constant amazing views! From several white water rafting tours this was one of my favourites. Highly recommend!

A must if you take a trip to these areas. Both for adults and children with large spaces and dedicated areas.
