Family operated business, very friendly people. Good equipment and punctual service. We did the 7km route, started at 4pm, enjoying the scene for 2.5 hours while the sun was changing slowly its color. Enjoy!

Great experience for families. The trip along the river is beautiful and not too demanding. Perfect for children. The service offered is friendly and warm. All our questions were answered and we were well looked after
