Don't Miss This!

What an incredible adventure! The scenery is gorgeous, the rapids are spectacular, but the staff really sets Hydra River Guides apart. The in-house staff was so helpful and intentional, and the guides were amazing. Cam, the guide on our raft, was professional, friendly, and safety-focused while also making sure we all had a wonderful time. We would raft with Hydra again and again! Don't miss this!
super good

Am Schluss wäre es schön, wenn der guide sich bei allen nochmals bedanken würde und vielleicht ein kurzes Feedback. So könnte man ihm auch Trinkgeld geben. Wir waren alle nass und wollten zuerst die Kleider wechseln und dann war unser Führer leider nirgends mehr zu sehen. Die Fotos, welche wir gekauft haben sind super! Auch haben wir uns immer sichergefühlt in der Begleitung von unserem Guide Verns. Dankeschön Bittel Meinrad und Vroni
