We went here as a group of 11 people ranging from 18-32 years of age. The group was split fairly evenly between 2 rafts. At first, we thought we were ahead of the learning curve but we were sorely mistaken. The Lehigh river is a beginner's river but we went in the day of the dam opening, so you can... More

I went to white water rafting today. In general, it has been a day filled with fun. However, some of the staffs (particularly those who were staying behind the counter) do not provide adequate service. I understand that there was a big group today. But, the level of service they provided was way too low. One example: Customers are waiting... More

Sorry to hear about your experience. I don't believe I was present when this occurred so I don't have the entire story but have seen similar incidents. We do not wait on late arrivals as a standard policy but sometimes guests do arrive just in time or a few minutes late and we are able to accommodate them. The guides... More

River was good with lots of waves. Initially we struggled a lot to learn, guides helped us a lot. Once we got the logic it was thrilling. It's good workout, muscles pain a bit next day. River looked a bit scary at first, non of us in our team knew proper swimming. Guides do help you. Non swimmers can try... More

we were a group of 8 including 5 16 year old girls. we were lucky enough to ride with guides so I basically got an advanced tutorial on reading the river and hitting the rapids. The river was high when we went due to heavy rain the day before so we move quickly and many of the rocks were no... More

We purchased our tickets through Groupon for a sidetour Whitewater rafting adventure that was hosted by Sourced Adventures. We had a GREAT time once we were on the water, and I would definitely go whitewater rafting again, but probably not through Sourced Adventures. We went on class II and III rapids during a dam release weekend. The weather was great,... More

Just wanted to post a follow up to this review. This review was written about a different Rafting Outfitter on the Lehigh river and posted about our company by mistake. We do not use Group on and we do not send guides / transportation to NYC. I contacted the poster last year and she confirmed it was another outfitter but... More

We went on a 6 hour trip, class 2-3 on a weekend that was supposed to be a dam release weekend. The river was extremely low, which made for a less exciting ride and lots of opportunities to get lodged on rocks. Which we did, a lot. It was on one of these rocks, that by another raft striking ours,... More

Great experience for a first timer doing whitewater rafting. Great for groups and family. Our group did the class 2/3 rapids and they weren't to crazy where you would fall off your raft. The only scary parts are when you get stuck on the rocks and you have to figure out how to get yourself out of them. It took... More

Went with my husband to celebrate my 50th birthday. There were 92 people in our group. We thought that was a lot but once you finally get in the raft and see all the other tour group right there also, you realize that the river traffic will be like sitting on the Garden State Parkway on a Saturday afternoon.

I was very frightened and planned to shop while my husband, son and in-laws went white water rafting. Well, my sister-in-law convinced me to do it. I was now unprepared - no swimsuit and no lunch. I bought a shirt there to wear and decided to get wet! I would eat my son's yogurt and extra nuts I packed for... More
