Our guide, Jimmy, was fantastic. Our rafting was amazing. I highly recommend the Double Gorge trip... double the excitement without the lazy float! The food was good, even for vegetarians. My only complaint is that I really wanted a picture and some of the pictures from our trip were great, but they showed the pictures in the hottest room on... More

We had a small boat for the three of us so the ride was spectacular. And the best guide I have had, named senior, he really made the trip down fun.

We have rafted with MagicFalls twice now. We camped the first trip with the kids but today we made the 4 hour trip up for the multi gorge trip. It was so worth the drive. After the fantastic double trip down the river we had a great Bbq. The staff is great at making you feel welcome. They show you... More

We had such a great day on the fun yak trip down the lower Kennebec. Its is not at all what I expected but blew any idea of what I thought it would be out of the water. It was such a fun trip and more rapids than I thought we would hit, which was awesome since I have been... More

Wife and I went rafting recently after travelzoo announced a sweet deal- only $39 per person and it included lunch! Sweet deal for sure. Before we made it there, we were charged an additional $10 for a 'reschedule fee'- I am not a fan of fake charges- and I see this as being one. So that was a downside. The... More

Good Times Rafters-Are you sure it was a reschedule fee and not the State of Maine access fee which is paid to the Dept. of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and Brookfield Energy for the use of their roads and dam controlled water? That fee is $5 per person and listed in the "fine print" on the Travel Zoo promotion. Thanks... More

Me and some of my closest friends rode the Kennebec and the Dead with Magic Falls some 6/7 years ago and we got hooked! For the next two years we continued to ride with Magic Falls, not because of the lavish accommodations, (they don't have hot tubs or restaurants or bars attached to their facilities like other companies), but because...

This was a first time for us. All the guides were good, ours (Chris) was great so knowledgeable. What a fun trip. We slept in the cabins, bring anything you can think of for bug repellents, start your fire pit soon, bring extra clothes and sheets or blankets for the cabin.

My wife, eleven year old stepson and I did the Kennebeck river full trip yesterday and we could not have been better pleased with or we'll taken care of by guides Bill, Nate and Chris and Brooke in the office. We received a great deal of personal attention since we were the only party rafting, but I know these guys... More

This is a review based on a trip I went on back in the 90's!! When I was 19! It was so awesome, I speak about it so often in fact, that it's hard to believe it was that many years ago! I was just praying my son would be able to get a leave from the Marine Corps. In... More

I'm the Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 345 in Alfred, Maine. The boys loved it !!!!!! They all said that they want to go back and do it again. My raft had Dave as the guide, What a nice gentleman to talk to.
