Recently my wife and I decided to try kayaking, but neither of us had any experience. We chose River & Trail Outfitters because they offered a introductory kayaking course, and we could not have been more happy with it. Mike, the instructor, was knowledgeable and personable, and he knew how to keep his audience engaged with humor. But he was... More

The river was low and slow, with gorgeous scenery. My raft guide was Haley, who kept us entertained with corny jokes and historical facts. We didn't have to do much paddling , or get hung, so enjoyed floating. Also got a thrill out of the few rapids we hit. Really nice day trip. Ask for Haley!

I took a group of college students as a group bonding activity and they enjoyed it very much. The bus driver was very friendly and explained the procedure very well. There was a little of a wait due to it being the last weekend for a groupon deal, but other than that it was a great trip.

I booked river & trail outfitters for a solo kayaking trip down the Potomac. The booking process was simple and quick. The two attendants working were very friendly and helpful. The kayaking trip as a whole was a very fun and relaxing experience. It was a perfect day to get away from the hustle and bustle of reality and take... More

Last week while vacationing my husband and I took three 11 year olds rafting with River & Trail and it was awesome. The kids had a great time and our guide, Shane, was terrific. Shane was great at helping us navigate the river, but he also gave mini lessons on nature and history. When we finished Haley another guide gave... More

I booked the afternoon Shenandoah/Potomac rafting trip. Our guide, Tim, was great. We enjoyed listening to him share some history of the area. We also liked his professionalism as well as his sense of humor. We were nervous at first but quickly felt at ease and comfortable under his expert direction. The view on the 7 mile trip was beautiful... More
