We done river tubing., was great fun. Only 5 of us in the group. Not too strenuous, had a wonderful guide called Errol. Lovely to see some countryside on the 40 minutes journey to get to the river.

Bamboo River Rafting on the Martha-Rae. Our guides name was Daily, (#45guide) and he was excellent. Older gentleman that took his time getting down the river.He knew we took this trip to relax and not "race" down the river like some of the other, younger guides were doing. He also engaged us in pleasant conversation and never once pleaded a horrible life so I need a good tip style of banterment like some of the other guides we heard about. (he got a good tip to say the least). Read Less

I would like to give this excursion 5 stars. I believe the tubing part of it deserves that! The shopping part of the excursion was horrible. The river guides were wonderful. They were always making sure we were safe and staying away from the bushes. They sang songs and entertained us. My 7 year old son did this with us. He loved it! It was relaxing, but had enough small rapids to add excitement. There were 7 people in our group. I think this was everyone's favorite excursion out of the entire cruise! I would recommend this for anyone! You won't be disappointed! I do have to say that the shopping experience we had after tubing was less than stellar. We didn't realize we were going to be taken to a small village to shop. Many people in our group did not bring money. They assured us our belongings would be safe on the bus while we were tubing, and it was, however, beforehand, people only brought off the ship, what they could bring with on the tube in the river. At the small village we were split into small groups to "share the love". The people in the shops were very pushy and would not let us leave. We were done shopping and ready to get on the bus, but the shop owners/worker kept grabbing us telling us our bus was not ready (we could see it parked not too far away). They did this to other people in our group as well. They were all in different shops. They just wanted us to stay and spend money. It was not a pleasant experience at all. I could have done without that stop. The tour guide on the bus was fun and had a lot of information. We did make another stop at a different part of town. That was much more pleasant to shop there. Again, many people had no money with them as they didn't know we would be stopping to shop. Overall, the tubing is spectacular! You will have a blast! Come prepared to do a little shopping and be aware of the pushy salesman and women at the small village. Read Less
