          Hi there, If I am staying at another hotel, can I still do the rafting with you? What time does the rafting start during the day? If we come in around noon, is that a good time? Thanks!

          Absolutely yes you can do the rafting with them. Morning time is always preferable as the water flow is bit high that time (if you want to enjoy the rafting its a must) and you wont feel much heat in d morning usually.Enjoy
