Just got home from a great business team building trip from here today. We did the rafting and it was a gorgeous day and an awesome experience for someone who has never done this before. Maury, Neil, Liam, and especially Nate, our raft's guide, did an amazing job teaching us the ropes and also giving us lessons about the river... More

Had such a good time! However, the river was littered with beer cans, water bottles, and food. This is only a 1-3hrs adventure, so why is it stressed to bring water or rent a cooler. You should Eat and drink before entering the water, or after. On website they stress no alcoholic beverages. EVERYONE that had a cooler had alcohol.... More

Our group had a blast on the Potomac River with Robby as our guide! He made sure to engage us, kept us laughing, and was also very informative about the beautiful sites we were seeing as we rafted down the historical river. It was a gorgeous day (8/22/15), and I'm positive we would have been happy with any guide we... More

I decided to explore the rivers around the tri-state area and found this wonderful place that offers all sorts of activities on the river. Everyone, starting from the girl who answered the phone, was very pleasant, down to earth and accommodating. Our guides were terrific, and lots of fun, Fancy Mat, had us laughing even from the bus ride, he... More

My friends and I wanted a quick weekend activity, close to DC and chose rafting because we thought it would be an adventure . Initially we booked with another company but changed our reservation based upon a recommendation from someone from our group. We are so glad we did! The River & Trail Outfitters guides were organized, knowledgeable and made... More

My family was looking for an outdoor bonding experience and we were not dissappointed. I was nervous about rafting, but our guide Rhett was awesome. He make us feel relaxed and made sure we had a good time. He was very knowledgable about rafting, kayaking, geology, local history and nature. It was a great first time experience for white water...

Checked one off my bucket list. Very well organized. Beautiful day on the water with my son. Maury was the best guide. Even though water level low he was able to guide us through without getting stuck. Loved every minute

Went with a big group great for beginners. Guides were very organized had dealing with a large group down to a science. Had loads of fun, but wish there was more white water. Provided lunch was great; fried chicken, potato salad and watermelon. Overall a great way to spend a Sunday. Awsome guide! Thanks Tim!

Due to the low water levels (I went on 8/8/15), this is only a Class 2 trip (even though it says Class 3). The river is quite shallow and getting stuck on rocks is common. The trip was supposed to start at 2:30pm, but we didn't get on the water until closer to 4pm because one of the guides was... More
