If you love outdoors adventures, this is a place for you. The incredible conection with nature can not compare to anything. You can book from a relaxing experienced to an adventurous one, the one that gets your adrenaline going. I suggest you make reservation to go in large groups or a more intimate group of four ( family or two... More

We took the "Wild and Scenic" trip with two teens, 17 and 15. We were all first time rafters and I must admit were a little worried about the trip being too much for us. It was perfect! It was just the right amount of waves with some breaks. As some of the other reviewers stated, the guides did goof... More

We reserved a trip for eight people three weeks in advance at $40/person, but the employee on the phone evidently wrote down BOTH the credit card number and the phone number wrong. The credit card was never processed and we never got a call. When we called to confirm the reservation the day before, they informed us of all of... More

We took the family rafting trip because we had 4 boys 8-11 with us, and part of our extended group took the more adventurous ride at the same time. The river was high, but the family rafting segment was adventurous but not overly scary for the young ones. It was a good balance, the more adventurous in our group still... More

PLEASE use any other company.. Staff was unprofessional and you had to take your raft in and out of the water three times.

I purchased the groupon for the half day Wild & Scenic Tour. Included in that was the wet suit rental, boots, life jacket and blue suit that goes under the life jacket. That being said, checking in was simple and easy, as was getting the equipment for the trip. Everyone staff member was super nice and seemed excited about their... More

We had a great time. Eric was our guide and was very experienced and gave us highlights of the river as we went along. The water was high due to lots of rain but he kept us all in the raft. There was a bit of the frat boy attitude with the van full of employees we rode to the... More

Having read most of the comments posted I can honestly say that the A-1 Wildwater Company and our guide John were exceptional. They went out of their way to accommodate our tight schedule and provided an experience that my family will never forget. The trip to the put in spot was scenic and short (about 1/2-3/4 hour). Great rapids and... More

We had multiple generations excited to raft in August. The guides were patient and knowledgeable and we had a great time. A-1 was organized and professional and fun. After rafting you can purchase photos on a disc so you are able to share. Highly recommend this tour group!

The intro was daunting, but overall a fun safe ride. We had a great navigator who avoided too much bumpiness given we had a total of 9 people in the raft and two young children (8&9) tucked in the middle of the boat.
