I bought a certifikid to go tubing w my kids after calling the location to make sure it was age-appropriate for my children age 6 to 11. When we got there I told them we were beginners and they assured us that it was very simple and safe. Unfortunately they dropped us off at the top of the Shenandoah River.... More

Such nice people! My friends and I have tried the different groups for tubing on the Shenandoah and these guys are the easiest and nicest to work with. Billy has been our driver several times and is always helpful and nice. Nothing better than floating down the river with friends while enjoying the view and wildlife!

My daughter, our friend, and I went white water rafting with Justin as our guide. From the check-in to the actual trip, all of the staff members were very helpful and knowledgable. Justin was an excellent guide and even offered us some historical information about Harpers Ferry as we passed by historical spots. We definitely recommend this trip!

Great trip! The family loved it! Recommend to all I know! Tim, our guide, was really nice. He should get a big fat raise! (No I'm not related and he didn't pay me). Very fun. Jump in if the water is warm!

I went on this trip alone and unfamiliar with rafting down a river so I was a bit nervous, but this trip is more like floating and so it was easy and kids and older people would have no problem. People were put into rafts in groups of six but ours ended up with only four. Our capable and friendly... More

We picked River and Trail outfitters based on previous TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We ranged in age from 9 - 50, with most of us being complete whitewater novices, but a few with more extensive experience. We had a great time, were very impressed with our guide, Ethan, who was both fun but also safety conscious. I would... More

First time there and we had a blast. The staff was very friendly, the only reason I did not give it 5 stars, there was no place to get something to drink, due to the fact we ran out.

My wife and I selected River & Trail for our first whitewater kayaking experience. We had a blast! Our guide, Shane, did an outstanding job. He helped us navigate level 1-3 rapids without a single spill. He has an encyclopedic knowlege of the local plants and animals and pointed them out as he spotted them. If I could give some... More
