This was my fourth trip (3 prior trips on the Middle Fork) with All Outdoors and was fantastic as always the guides were great, fun and knowledgeable about the river and its history. The guides keep you engage during slow parts of the river playing games or letting you float in the water. Great part of the river for first... More

The whole day from signing on at the meeting point, to collecting the photos at the end was professionally handled with a smile. The equipment was all in good condition and the lunch was excellent with as much food as you could eat. Our guide Mikey, was a very relaxed character who instilled confidence in you from the start.

Had a great adventure rafting on the Middle-Fork American River with All-Outdoors. This was my first time and would definitely book another trip with this company. The guides were a lot of fun and extremely knowledgeable about the river and rapids. I would highly recommend this company for your rafting trip.

The booking was really straight forward. We originally booked a 2 day Middle Fork trip on the advice of the admin staff. This had to be cancelled due to the drought and we transferred to a 1 day Middle Fork. When we arrived in Placerville we realised that we were only 5 mins away from the South Fork 1 day... More

I made the mistake of asking my guide if he had lost anyone overboard. That was a big mistake because the last time I asked a guide a similar question i got stuck on a zip line over a river. Dave was quick to get my husband but I was taking the road less traveled and it took awhile before... More

The two-day trip was a perfect getaway. The guides were great and they are very knowledgeable and helpful. Sleeping under the stars was a highlight and the food was amazing. The rapids were challenging and also the side hikes were well organized and fun. Highly recommended. Kudos to our guides... Noah, Ryan (Horse), Beth and Joe. Will definitely do it... More

Had an amazing 3 day experience with 17 fellow Veterans, courtesy of Honoring the Path of the Warrior [non-profit group from SF] on the Tuolumne River. This is NOT for the faint of heart or those high maintenance types; if that is you, keep to your poolside lounge at your 4 star hotels. BUT, if you feel like a challenge... More

Cherry Creek is here for you-- ready to challenge you mentally and physically. 15 class V rapids will show you what you're made of. Are you strong and fearless? Are you a water warrior? To put yourself to the test, you've gotta go with the best: All-Outdoors. All-Outdoors is the most organized and safety-conscious rafting company I've encountered. The guides... More

For the long weekend we took a 2 day white water rafting trip on the Tuolumne River near Yosemite National Park. This is a supported camping trip and frankly its pretty damn luxurious for a camping trip, apart helping move some gear and setting up your own tent pretty much everything else is done for you. Our 4 guides set... More

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

Thank you for your feedback, Laura. We’re sorry that you didn’t enjoy your day on the Tuolumne with us more, and have shared your feedback with both our reservations and guide staff so we can improve. The harsh conditions of wilderness rafting trips takes a toll on all equipment, fading colors and abrading surfaces, but all of our gear, equipment,... More
