Rafted the Tuolumne River with this company because it had such stellar reviews and ratings. I was horribly disappointed. The helmut, PDFs, rafts, etc. were old and looked like they were falling apart. The van looked hella old and like it would lose it's brake pads at any time which is pretty scary given the drive down. They make you... More

We took our daughter, grandson and his friends on a graduation celebration raft trip down some fun class III rapids. The weather was perfect. The guide, Steve, was competent easy to follow and had us working as a team. The lunch was delicious and a very nice quiet, shady pull out. We've done a lot of rafting including the middle... More

Wonderful well trained staff. The Tuolumne river is great fun with many challenging rapids. My wife and I did the 3-day trip. Keep in mind that all trips cover the same distance, we felt that 2 days would have been just right. Being forced to rent the wetsuit and splash top at the last minute was really a forced money...

You initially meet where you sign a waiver and pay for your wet suit & splash guard. There was one toilet to get changed in with nowhere to place your clothes down or hang them up while you changed which wasn't very practical, we were also told the toilet didn't work, so we would have to use the porta-potty outside....

AO made for a great beginner rafting experience. We attended the all day South Fork "Lower Gorge" trip. Weather was a wonder 90+ degrees on this Saturday in October. AO had 3 rafts with about 8-6 people each. I forgot the name of our guide but I think it was Joe. He was the lead, more experienced guide over the... More

This was our second time rafting and camping with these guys at Tuolumne River near Yosemite(the first time was at American River middle fork) and we all had a grand 'ol time. It was the 3rd or 4th time rafting for all of us so we weren't exactly new to this activity but also not experienced white water rafters by... More

There may be less expensive rafting options, but AO is the best! I have been on Cherry Creek (class V) and the one-day Tuolumne (Class IV) with them and had a great experience both times. I'd suggest asking for Noah to be your guide, he is outstanding! Huge difference between the two rivers, so if you are experienced and looking... More

Just came back from a trip on the Middle Fork. We had a group of 8 people, all adults in 20-30's and 2 females. Our group had to be split up 4 and 4 since only 6 are in a boat but we knew that ahead of time already. We were all first timers and I feel this is the... More

Great rafting company. Went on Tuolomne. Wasn't very "rapid" for me. Class 4, but I was expecting little more intensity and more class 4 rapids. Of then 20 or rapids, only about 5 of them were class 4. But it's great for a family trip. Next time I will do Cherry River
