We were satisfied with the services offered. Their price was more than the others, but the guides and rafters were professional and we felt very secure with them. The kayaker they send along with their rafts was an added safety, although a single kayak for three rafts was something they can improve upon. Guides instilled a lot of confidence in us. Though I was responsible for four teens.... I felt secure throughout. The kids in my group were expert swimmers, so they allowed a lot of body surfing and floating/swimming in the river as well. Photo and video option for an added price was available, for those who wanted. We thought it was worth the price. I would definitely recommend them

Dear Sir, thanks for reviewing us on this platform. I am glad you enjoyed your trip with us. Just wanted to clarify that Kayaker's role is to back up 1st raft going down the river. Once 1s raft is safely down the rapid then 1st raft backs up second raft and second backs up third raft and third raft back-up fourth raft. 1 kayaker is good enough at this volume/ flow but when river runs high we send 2 kayakers with raft trip. It can be 10 raft or 15 rafts trip, 1-2 kayakers are enough for safety on this sort of river ganga. thanks again.

Great experience overall. We opted for the 16km rafting tour. The staff was polite, maintained hygiene, punctual and followed safety protocol. My parents tried rafting for the first time and were made very comfortable. Our guide on raft, Dev was super fun and brought a great energy with him. All in all a great experience!
We rafted through 3-4 rapids. Many companies that offer rafting tours at cheaper costs do the same distance but start off at a much lower base in the Ganges, thus, offering only one rapid in the 16km stretch. These rafts end up at the ghats of Rishikesh which are crowded and dirty. The tour with Red Chilli Adventures was good value for money.

We enjoyed overall experience at Red Chilli. They have an excellent office staff along with the best rafting guides .
the best part is that they handle you with care in the sense that right from you meeting them and going through their focus on treating to more than customer to managing safety aspects makes you feel at ease.
our guide Sagar was a great entertainer and never let anyone feel the fear of god when you are one rapids.
I can blindly vouch for them to be the best in business in Rishikesh.

They are very professional and the take utmost care for your safety. They are best in rafting in Rishikesh. Dry suits and jacket which they provided was neat and clean. Dry suit is very useful specially in winters, because I saw kids wearing wet puffer jackets in other rafts and I was wondering what would happen to them in this ruthless and cool wind of Ganga. There was a kayaker with us who was looking like a Olympic athlete and you can vouch on him that he won’t let you drown. In cliff jumping he immediately came and asked about my well-being and I am not a good swimmer so he took me immediately to the shore. Videos are of good quality. They might be expensive from local rafting guys which you can find in Tapovan main road but they are worth the price. Never compromise with your safety.

Fantastic Experience with Red Chilli! Loved loved loved the way they organized the rafting for us! My husband and I both dont know how to swim and truth be told, we were a little scared.
Red Chilli Adventure may seem expensive compared to other rafting agencies but I think its worth every penny!
They are extremely professional. Their people are very well trained and have the necessary licences. They run this so professionally. We were given wet suits that covered us top to bottom and a wind jacket so that we dont feel cold - by the water or the air. We were only 2 of us in a large raft however, these guys managed it so well that our raft never once capsised. Infact Golf Course is a Level 3 rapid and most rafts with few people capsize, but these guys are super navigators I must say.

WIll recommend to everyone going rafting in Rishikesh to do it with Red Chilli!

Very experienced rafting guide/instructor and great emphasis on all the participants safety during rapids and in general. Expensive as compared to other adventure companies as you end up paying almost 2X the amount but then quality of overall experience is awesome. My 15 yr old son loved the whole experience and wanted to go for rafting once more.

Carried out 16km shivpuri river rafting and cliff jumping activity with them and must say had absolutely awesome experience with them. although the price is couple of hundred bucks higher then other operators but its totally worth it.

PROS
1) Extremely nice, courteous and professionally trained and certified staff will make your whole experience thrilling and safe at same time. They encourage for getting down in water where it is safe and are always in command of situation. My raft incharge Ankit was very humble, helpful and always made us feel comfortable and safe during whole expedition. The other guides Dev and Sandy were equally efficient and courteous.

2) Very good quality equipment, ensuring extra safety and then offer wetsuits as well to everyone in case you want to avoid exposing yourself directly to cold water of ganga.
3) The cliff jumping is not done from maggi point. (although you dont get chance to eat maggi), but this jumping point is 5 feet higher and less crowded then the maggi point, making it more thrilling.
4) There is an additional Kayak with the rafts so that in case of help needed they can quickly come to rescue.
5) they only take 6 to 7 people per raft unlike other operators where there can be 8 to 10 persons per raft.

Cons
Unable to think of any as of now.
