      • Review by sandrabuldon from Madrid, Spain

        "Soy viajera y mi pareja es guía de rafting, por lo que he hecho rafting en muchos lugares del mundo y con muchas empresas. Todo eso me da una visión crítica a la hora de realizar la actividad. En Dinghy ví verdaderos profesionales. El río es igual de complejo que hermoso, y recorrerlo en balsa con un guía que sabe lo que hace marca la diferencia, porque sientes que la situación está bajo control y te permite disfrutar de la belleza del lugar y la emoción de sus rápidos con alegría y tranquilidad. He bajado por lugares donde sientes que la barca y el equipo va fuera de control, donde eres uno más de los 100 clientes que bajan ese día,y no disfrutas igual, te lo aseguro, por eso mi opinión es tan buena para ésta empresa y se la recomiendo a todo el mundo. Un nivel técnico a valorar, y un trato exclusivo y de confianza que no tiene precio. "

        "Así da gusto hacer rafting!"

        "Me fui de paseo con mi amiga Gloriana y disfrutamos con Diana y Andrés de guías un recorrido espectacular por el río Peñas Blancas, cerca de La Fortuna. Me encantó conocer más de cerca mi país, su flora y fauna salvaje y expuesta a quienes quieran aventurarse; vimos congos, aves, tortugas, iguanas y hasta cocodrilos."

        "Mil gracias por esta experiencia y por el servicio tan personalizado de estos guías!"

        "Super recomendado para grupos de amigos y familiares!"
