Great fun, good way to see the mountains. Not the highest challenge even for a beginner, but as i said great fun. Personal was nice and helpful. And they also have good restaurant with nice barbeque food.

We did kayaking + rafting program, it starts with a morning pickup in the hotel and finishes at 6:30pm. Mario is one of the friendliest people we met in Argentina, he has worldwide experience in rafting and speaks very good English. River itself is quite adventourus, yet accessible for any fit person. Added bonus if you take this program -... More

Good location on a river with great views and fun rapids. Equipment was high quality, we always felt safe and secure, and the guides were friendly and professional (also english-speaking). Plus photos and videos from inside and outside the boat too....well worth the trip!

Very good way see the mountains and experience something quite racy, the river is not of the highest challenge but the Rapids there are can be exciting enough. And you maybe lucky and see wild animals you would otherwise miss. The river is very clean I can vouch for that I fell in and the water was essential fresh rain... More

We booked with Mario direct and his communication was perfect. We were picked up from our hotel in Mendoza by Silvio who was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide for the length of the journey up to the Mendoza river. All the equipment was first class and the staff were brilliant, made us feel very welcome and the whole set... More

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
