We were collected in the morning by a private car and taken to the lake about 45 minutes away. We were the only 3 on the entire lake in the morning for the kayaking... More

We did the half day rafting trip and it was so great we wish we had done the full day! Mario, Silvio and the team were wonderful, the equipment was in good condition and safe, and the rafting itself was fun and exhilarating and over far too quickly!

I had the best horseback riding experience ever in the Potrerillos valley with my husband, thanks to Potrerillos Explorers and our awesome tour guide Francisco! The first time I went horseback riding in California it was not such a great experience, but this was the first time I felt safe and comfortable thanks to the guides. This was my husband's... More

I was in Mendoza for a weekend with my friends. We are all students studying abroad between ages 19-21. We booked this trip very last minute and the weather was slightly cold. We had the MOST AMAZING experience. It was so clean and they were super organized. They gave us body suit and life jacket and they had Spanish and... More

This company is very professional, laid-back, and tons of fun. All of their equipment and gear is very clean and in great condition. I hate putting on damp, mildewy life vests and wetsuits and we saw none of that here. The staff is friendly and outgoing and really make sure you have a great time. Angelo was our guide for... More

We did the half day rafting trip, and I already want to go back! Very friendly and accommodating staff, gear is in good condition, and the make it their goal to ensure a great experience, not just to get you down the river.

Don't miss rafting on the Mendoza River and this is the company to do it with. Every aspect was fun and professional. They completely outfit you, give thorough instructions and have additional safety kayaks ride along with you. Prepare to get drenched. Above it all was thrilling.
