Spent a day on Grade 3 rafting trip with Tim and his gang and had so much fun! Part of a recommended schools World Challenge trip so safety was first class: we had a full briefing plus lifejackets and helmets to begin with and were accompanied for the whole day by a safety canoe plus throw ropes. Nice lunch and... More

A super friendly and professional team of guides led by Tim Dent organised a fun packed 2 days which included 25km plus of white water rafting, a side trip to scramble up to a beautiful waterfall, camping on a sandy island with a friendly local...

We did the Class 3 rafting trip and it was AMAZING. I had never been rafting before and I had sooooo much fun! Definitely doable. Not too scary. Felt very safe and that the tour and raft was under the control of the guides, so never had to worry. Would absolutely recommend and do again!

I went river rafting with the River People a few months ago in early June, and they made it a blast for our group. We were a group of 9 young adults and they helped us have such an amazing experience by showing us all these fun games on the raft and keeping things not too serious. Definitely a 5... More

Excellent company to go rafting with. Tim was our guide and his family has been taking groups rafting around Tena for 20+ years. He was super friendly, enthusiastic and a fun guide. Their equipment was top notch and well maintained. Highly recommended to go rafting with them!

This was my fourth time doing white water rafting and it was great. I highly recommend this agency, who took safety serious in what is a tough river to raft. We had several people thrown from our boat and it can be a panic, but the crew took good care to recover and get back on course. With regards to... More

I was apprehensive about going white water rafting because I had done it in West Virginia, USA and I was terrified. I went on River People Rafting last week with Tim as our guide and he was great and a lot of fun!

We enjoyed the ride with Max and Gabriel. They were not only friendly but also made sure that we were safe and comfortable. They picked us up in the Hostel Pakay and guided us to the river. We visited a water fall after a short nice hike and later on we got a tasteful lunch :). They use pretty good... More

What an awesome day rafting on the Napo River! Our guides, Max and Gabriel are knowledgeable and enthusiastic! They made the day unforgettable. Lunch was great. I'm so glad I brought a waterproof camera. Thanks to Gabriel, who took pictures from the kayak for us throughout the day!
