We have done a few white water rafting tours and we’re very impressed with how 8Adventures coordinated the day. From the pick up, safety video, rafting and lunch. Since we went in the off season the rapids weren’t as intense as we have experienced, but still provided a thrill for the adventure junkies. The river is very scenic and an awesome way to see a glimpse of the jungle with a few elephants along the way.

We were a family of 4 (11yr & 13yr) we were picked up from hotel with a courtesy letter the day before left in our room from them reminding us what to bring etc. I liked the fact you pay on arrival. They were courteous and professional throughout the day. We trekked in the morning and got a chance to take photos at a beautiful waterfall our guide was informative and good humoured. Lunch was served which was tasty and ample. We then went onto the rafting, now my younger son was unable to do the full 10k ( partly due to his strength and river conditions) but they really made a fuss of him allowing him to get in a canoe with one of the instructors and join us later down the river - we thought this was a great touch. The safety briefing had so much info to take on, but it was delivered in such a fun way that it gave you confidence you would remember the key points. Some may think this is a pricey excursion, we would beg to differ, because they are so safety conscious and deliver on a great fun experience which I am sure my boys will remember of our time in chaing mai!

OMG Wow! 8Adventures were so professional with very high safety standards. Punctual pick up. Lunch on arrival was delicious. Eric and his staff were so much fun, they looked after us and made sure our adventure was the best not at any stage did we feel unsafe. We highly recommend this company for any of their adventures but especially the White-water rafting.
I would give them more stars if I could.

We did the whitewater rafting outing with 8Adventures. They were super communicative prior to the trip and even let us make a last minute change with no issues. The jungle views while on the raft were incredibly beautiful/awe-inspiring as you would expect and I'm glad I got to experience that, especially while floating along on a river! Having gone white water rafting in northern California, Utah and Pennsylvania, I would say that from a rapids perspective this won't be the best you've ever experienced (all of the rapids are very short), but I think it's a great introduction for those who have never done it before OR for families who are taking kids/teens because this company clearly takes your safety VERY seriously! You're provided a large meal after - it was good, but I wish it was Thai food instead (it currently consists of rice, Western-style salad and fried chicken strips). Of course, some may prefer the Western food :) Also, be prepared to paddle a bit! You don't need to be an athlete by any means but don't expect to have all the work done for you. Thanks 8adventures for a great day out in Chiang Mai!

We went whitewater rafting with 8adventures and had a blast! Although the water level was low (we knew that coming in) we still had fun. Hit lots of short Class III rapids and a couple of III+/IV rapids that the kids thoroughly enjoyed.

The guides, although playful, made sure that safety was first. This was evident while watching the safety videos featuring the owner (former World Champion) in the very nice van on the way to the site (1.5 hours). Great guides to spend 2.5 hours with on the river and a very attentive staff at headquarters. They even made my son a special lunch since he is Celiac (Gluten Intolerant).

**Warm showers are HUGE bonus after whatever activity you do. 😁

Looking forward to the next time. 😁

Looking forward to coming back when the water is really hitting hard. 😁

Really fun day from Chiang Mai. Rather low water at this time of the year but still fun. One boat flipped. Huge boulders, scalloped by the force of the water. High water mark visible ~3m above us. Scenic jungle forest and farmland along the route. Beautiful. Very good safety talk and operation. Captain was excellent. Would love to do it again at higher water.

Highlight of our trip to Thailand! Absolutely terrorfiying and exciting but your in safe hands. There were countless safety men including kayakers and bystanders and men attached via ropes standing in the Rapids with safety equipment. It was so fast and scary many drops! Really good fun. Friendly staff who went out of their way to ensure we all had the best time. I was allowed to use the kayak and we all got a chance to swim in the water if we wanted. Hot food hot showers included. Photographs taken are of top standard! Excellent value for money!

Eric and his amazing team should be congratulated for providing such a well organised and safe tour. From hotel pick up, to registration, safety briefing, hot showers, tasty lunch to drop off, every single part of the trip was geared to ensuring that our family had the best experience.
I had never tried white water rafting before and neither had my two 12 year old sons. I’m quite protective but I want my kids to have these experiences and I can honestly say that I could put 100% trust and confidence in Eric and his team to keep my kids safe. As the waters were very high, the kids has to get out of the raft for the tricky section and meet us later, travelling down river by van. This gave me even more confidence in the safety of the company.
The scenery along the river is magnificent; it’s hard to believe it’s real! It has an Amazonian feel to the place with jungle-covered mountains either side. You almost forget to look around you!
There was one point where we were allowed to pop out of the raft and drift down the river, which was so much fun and gave us the chance to take in the views.
The rafting experience was one of the best things I have done in my life, but the icing on the cake today was seeing five elephants cross the river right in front of us. I will never forget it!
Eric gets involved in guest experiences personally and is visibly keen to make sure that everyone has a great day and also that we learned something about rafting. I wish he would open experiences in other parts of the world because I would most definitely go!

Professional team that gave full important instructions, great rafting with wonderful guides, suites for family activity. After the activity we could take a shower, they gave us all we needed, and a great meal was waiting for us. I warmly recommend this place which was the best activity day we had. We didn't have time to try their other activities and that is the only thing I regret in this place. Enjoy
