Our guide, Darren, was amazing. He was really fun and easy going. He really made everyone feel safe and made sure we got the most out of our rafting experience. I really liked that at the end of the experience you could purchase all the photos and videos from our trip on a usb for a very reasonable price.

Did the 2 canyon half day raft. We drove from Lakr Louise in the morning so we could make a day of it and stopped at a couple of highlights along the way. It was our first rafting adventure but we felt safe as we were guided through the safety breifing. The rafting was just great, exilarating fun. Full of... More

My husband and I opted for the Discovery trip and that was just right. They have fun and don't treat life seriously BUT they do treat our safety extremely seriously! They know what they're doing and are very good oarsmen in the rafts.

Ended our awesome trip to Banff/ Golden rafting the kicking horse. The weather wasn't the best but they provided us with wet suits and jackets to keep us warm. The staff was very nice and the river was fun. We only did the lower half and it was full of class 3 and 4 Rapids. It was also nice to... More

The weather was cold and raining as we started our river rafting out of Golden BC. However the experience of whitewater rafting and our guide Jair we soon forgot the weather as the adventure was amazing. We would definitely do this again
