I take my campers here every summer for a whitewater rafting trip. The instructors/guides are always awesome with the kids and very skilled. The views are amazing and the water is relatively flat but a few awesome rapids (up to level 3) are present! We have never had a bad experience! The guides tell you a lot of neat information...

My wife and I went for the Shenandoah trip for our anniversary. We had Ollie as our tour guide and he was great. The company itself was very accommodating and gave us all the information we needed. Ollie had lots of great information about the area and offered to take pictures of us along the way. We were very grateful... More

I purchased the kayak flatwater and kayak whitewater beginner classes, Saturday and Sunday. It was fantastic. My instructor for both classes was David. He was chill, knowledgeable, and attentive. Both days some land instruction for approx 10 mins. We would paddle a while and stop in river for David to give us more instruction, then paddle on. Flatwater was relatively... More

excellent time and great fun. Our guide was the best!!! Her name is Toni and I will request her forever! She is outstanding at her job. Also, she made the Rafting trip informative and fun. We will come again, hopefully in May of 2016. We will try to make this a yearly outing.

We had an awesome time meeting other rafters and rafting. All of the instructors are really nice and had a bunch of corny jokes.

Awesome Trip! I want to thank our guides: Fancy Matt, Lisa, Toni, Neil, and Crash. We have been on numerous Rafting trips. These guys were amazing. Professional, funny and full of very interesting historical stories. Amazing lunch. The trip was very memorable. Great time!

Although I went white water rafting with a group of (at the time) strangers and am terribly uncomfortable doing new things in water, I had a far better time than I expected! This trip served as a team building exercise for a sponsored group. Our raft guide, Maury, was very intelligent and helpful. He encouraged us through the tough parts... More

We had a great two-day adventure tubing and kayaking on the Potomac. Maury, Bo, Travis, Neil, Christina and Katie were all great with a mixed group of dare devils and scaredy cats. Fried chicken for lunch was a great change from other outfitters who usually just serve cold cuts. We felt safe and very well taken care of.
