    We attended a 3 day kayak course with Sadev Rana and Bhupi Mehta. They were amazing guides! They speak excellent English and have very good teaching skills! They know everything about kayaking and the river Ganga and gave us clear, understandable instructions. We were used to smaller rivers in Europe, so Ganga was a challenge but I felt perfectly safe with them by my side, because they were so fast and experienced on the water. On top they were very committed, motivating and always positive. Great people!

    Communication and planning beforehand with Vipin Sharma from the office was clear and easy. They had good quality equipment. Everything worked out as planned. The surrounding view while traveling downstream the Ganges is unique and an experience of a lifetime! Vipin organized a Tiger safari trip for us, too, that we also really enjoyed.

    I can really recommend Red Chilli Adventure. We had a great time and would definitely book with this agency again!

    We went for 4 days of trekking and 3 days of rafting. Every single aspect was seamlessly organised by Bheem, Deepak, and team.

    The travel from camp/buses to the starting point, campsites and tents, campfires in the evening, really tasty food and snacks were all amazing, the support during the rafting from the raft leads and rescue kayakers was extremely helpful.

    Beyond the formalities, there was a deep personal connect and care seen from each and everyone there. EVERYONE from the WWE team was there to help; even asking quick questions to the chefs regarding food, was able to get prompt responses. This is my third trip with WWE and I enjoyed it. It was fun, safe, and memorable and planning was meticulous on their end with a lot of care taken towards everyone, beyond their roles.

    This is the "Trip of our Lifetime ". Thank you Anvesh and team for putting this together so beautifully. We enjoyed every second of our trip. We thought we have signed up for rafting but you have made us do trekking, cliff jumping, rock climbing. We are blown away by your hospitality and safety in every possible way. You are the best and we can't wait to have our next River trip with you. Special mention to Manish, Jammu and Rahul for giving us the delicious and nutritious food. We are glad we have chosen Expeditions India to do this trip and we highly recommend everyone.

    We had very little time before flight back home and we were not really prepared to make any trekking. but these guys provided us with everything that we needed. And it was an wonderful experience. The places are stunning and Ankush was very kind, careful of all our needs and was always checking on us.
    The trekking is not so difficult till Tungnath Temple, only the last 1km was a bit challenging for us that had no experience on trekking. The landscape and the lovely breakfast provided from Ankush on a breathtaking spot worth it so very much, thou!

    I did an amazing 4-day trip with Team4Adventure in January 2023. I contacted them a few months before arriving in Rishikesh. I've done kayaking maybe 20 times in my life, but only flatwater, and only for a few hours at a time. After booking the trip with Team4Adventure I did have a few group lessons in my local swimming pool, mainly to get confortable with wet exits and T-rescues, although also to attempt to learn to roll independently (mostly unsuccessfully).

    The trip really exceeded by expectations. The trip started after we drove from Rishikesh a few hours upstream to Srinagar (Uttarakhand). The next 4 days we spent kayaking down the river. I spent some of my time in a hardshell kayak, but did the bigger rapids in a 2-person inflatable 'ducky'. Really exhilarating for a beginner like me - lots of capsizing - but I felt really well-looked-after by the team, and always had a safety kayaker looking out for me. I mostly managed to wait for T-Rescues, although if I wet-exited that was ok too. Beautiful scenery throughout, and amazing campsites on mostly-deserted riverside beaches. The food was really good too - I was expecting sandwiches etc for dinner, but instead received 3-course feasts include some BBQ, with simpler sandwiches etc for lunch. I was warned that the water would be cold in January, but it really wasn't too bad - much better than the UK anyway.

    The whole trip was great fun, with lots of 'off-the-beaten-track' experiences that I wouldn't usually have had as a tourist. We even rescued a rooster (see the picture) who was about to meet a watery grave, and kept it safe for the rest of the trip! Thanks for everything - was a really memorable trip!

    The best team to raft with on river ganges. They run rafting/kayaking trips and expeditions. They have all the latest equipments. The team De N Ascent is the best i ever rafted with. They all are well trained, well behaved and knows their work pretty well

    We can highly recommend Wet N Wild Explorations as a very professional rafting company and Tour Operator! My 13 year old son an I, having done rafting expeditions around the globe since 25 years, booked Wet N Wild for the 8-day Zanskar River Rafting Expedition. Our expectations were totally exceeded in terms of safety and service! Highly experienced and very friendly drivers & -raft-guides, latest rafting and camping equipment, excellent, fresh and very clean & healthy cooking during the expedition, good Hotel booking, all was just amazing! Thank you so much to that great adventure Guide team of Mr. Chotak Tsering for this fantastic time and hope to come back soon!

    It was a wonderful experience there. We enjoyed a lot. We did the activities such as trekking, kayaking, bonfire, etc. And the most important thing about the Rewild India was that they offered the homemade food which was very tasty and hygienic. Team of Rewild India is very cooperative, they took very good care of us.

    Excellent guides, intelligent and responsible. They were good at explaining things and were patient with novices. They struck a great balance between working hard to keep us safe, and allowing us playful time on the river. Would definitely return in the hopes of doing a longer trip.

    Of the many adventure sport companies in Tapovan and other areas of Rishikesh, Sea Hawk provided us with the most reasonable rates and an enriching experience.

    Ensuring our safety in the water, we were provided with proper equipment and a safety Kayak with a professional life guard rowing it.

    Thanks to our guides Rakesh in the raft and Rohit in the kayak, it was an amazing experience. Looking forward to the next time! Thanks guys.

    We had booked a camp in Shivpuri (Rishikesh), from divine travels Their service was really nice. Best food like home made , best staff like friend and family, Best Services and also providing best suggestions for your help.

    We also chosen an 18 KM path for river rafting on the Gaga river. The per person cost was 520 rs only for 16KM rafting from Shivpuri rishikesh. The experience was awesome and we enjoyed every minute during rafting and 11 rapids. There were lots of thrill and challenges.Ultimately we loved a lot this trip.
