The Adrift guides (Big J and the others) did a wonderful job of guiding us down the river. Great safety instruction and practice at the beginning of the day which definitely came in handy later. This was an incredible experience and we hope to return one day to do it again! But be prepared to fall out! My only recommendation... More

We still haven't received our photos from Adrift, once they're received I'll update the review. I did the half-day rafting trip. The equipment was great and as well as the guides, including the kayak rescuers (I had to be rescued after the first rapid). In the first part we had the Kiwi as our guide. He was great, he took...

Went for half a day but I believe mostly people go for full day. Great experience, specially the first rapid where you take a steep fall. The people are good. The equipment is good. The food is OK. They did not accept my card but I believe they have that option at times. Need to take care to avoid sun... More

We had the full day rafting, 8 rapids in total. Our guide, Sadul, was very professional and nice, good English speaker, very informative about the Nile. We had lots of fun during the day.

We went for a full day of rafting and it was the best day ever! Our guide was amazing! He was skilled and his English was excellent. Before beginning the rafting, he went over commands and what we should expect. He had us practice a rescue and how to react if the raft flips. The rapids were terrifying, but I... More

The people who run Adrift are professional, kind and know when to have a laugh! This was one of the most amazing things I've ever done, but also one of the most terrifying. You're given a crash course on the different grades of "falls", and how each one is approached. Don't be afraid to get wet, and most certainly don't... More
