The rafting was a lot of fun! The scenery from the river looking up was spectacular! And it was an adventure navigating thru the Rapids. We also got to go up to a waterfall and jump into a watering hole.

We purchased a very affordable Wagjag or Groupon for our visit (Family of 4, kids aged 8 & 10) and were glad that we did. We drove from Niagara Falls, Canada for a day trip. Drive was 2 hours & easy to find with GPS. The water levels were low so we did tandem (2 person kayaks) instead of rafting...... More

Thank you for your kind words. You're absolutely correct about the scenery in the gorge, it is fabulous. We are particularly excited about the eagle sightings on our trips, as they becoming almost a daily occurrence, a real treat to be sure! We hope to see your family again in the future. More

We have lived within 7 miles of Letchworth Park for 35 years and have never taken the raft/kayak rides in the park! As I work with international students, I decided to drum up a day trip to the park with a rafting ride. Due to the water levels being low in early August, the only option was inflatable kayak We...

We're so glad your party enjoyed their outing with us, Kathy and thank you for such a detailed review. We especially enjoy sharing the gorge with people from other parts of the world, helping to reshape their thinking when it comes to New York just being a large metropolitan area on the East Coast.

We did it! What a wonderful experience. Be aware the walk to the river is a bit long, but enjoy the scenery, being outdoors, and the adventure. I felt safe, there was a balance between Rapids, float time and active rowing. The 2 stops were a nice break. We were delayed an hour (waiting for a special group that was... More

What an awesome family experience! We were staying in Letchworth State Park with our 2 boys for the weekend and booked this rafting trip at the same time. I can't say enough good things about ACO.

Had a great ride on the Genesee River. I will admit that the water level was somewhat higher than normal for this time of year, according to the guides; but, I never worried about any danger.

That headline is an actual quote from one of my Scouts, who also happens to be my son, in reply to another Scout who said he missed his mom.
