I did the class III Jatunyacu river last year. This year, we ran the Class-IV Jondachi/Hollin rivers after a torrential 7 hour deluge the night before. The river was up. Gabrael and Victor were our guides and did a great job. Instruction re paddling and safety was thorough. They also took time before each extreme rapid section to give us... More

Impeccable equipment, experienced IRF certified guides with 8+ years of guiding, an extra safety kayaker to scout rapids before the rafts... More

Our group of 4 did a 2-day tour on the Rio Hollin. Tim was flexible with us but had we known how amazing it would be, it wouldn't have been necessary as the rafting tour would have been our top priority in Ecuador. We also had an older couple on catarafts that made everything look easy while we were quickly... More

Loved every minute of 3 days with River People. Loads of fun on challenging rapids with a company that focuses on safety. Best company in the area. Thanks River People for showing me a little bit of your paradise.

We had an amazing day trip with River People. The guides are top notch professionals, and also a blast to hang out with. The gear is quality, food is delicious, and the rivers are beautiful. If you are in Tena and considering the possibility of going rafting, contact these guys and DO IT!!

Just had a great overnight trip on the Rio Hollin with Tim and the crew. It couldn't have been better! Super fun, challenging rapids, and great people to be on the river with. Great logistics from the taxis, porters, guides, crew, everything. Great homemade Ecuadorian food too!. What an awesome trip. River People, you rock!!

You go to Jatunyaku river and have a lot of fun while you raft the river. The guides, the equipment, the transport, the food, the tales of the river, even the security talk was fun. very recomended

Rafting with these guys is one of the best things I ever did in Ecuador. The equipment was first rate and the crew - Tim, Julio & Ryan - were awesome. Highly professional and very safe. We had so much fun and felt looked after at all times. Other companies might be cheaper, but these guys are the best. You... More
