We did the day rafting trip down the Mendoza, stopping at a disused rail town and finishing with one of the best lunches we've had in Argentina. These guys are awesome. Extremely professional. We never felt rushed but everything happened on time. Pablo and Silvio, our guides, were exceptional. Do it!!

Our group of 11 chose an afternoon session which gave us time to do other things in Mendoza in the morning. We were picked up from our hotel at 2.00pm and driven to their base where we were outfitted with all our gear and given safety instructions. We met a group who were returning from their rafting experience, exhibiting a... More

We had a blast on the water with Silvio and Mario - both our world class guides (Silvio has guided on rivers all over the world) and have great personalities. The included asado lunch was exceptional - one of the best meals we had in Argentina. I highly recommend Potrerillos for anyone looking for a break from the big bus... More

This was the first time that I've been white water rafting and had an amazing time. The guides were excellent and were very quick when I almost fell in! Their experience and explanations of safety precautions were outstanding. Also safety first.

We were lucky enough to be the only customers so had the boat to ourselves. Excellent and knowledgeable guide. Great fun with the river running high. The booking process was simple and efficient.

We had a amazing rafting experience with Potrerillos explorer! Our guide Silvio was the best; off course safe and good rafting and he explained us a lot about the river and mountains as well.

Myself and my wife did the kayaking and rafting day with Mario a few days ago and all i can say is what an amazing experience. 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!
