Had a great experience. Jeep tour with Erica was fabulous. She was very courteous and knowledgeable about the area and presented it in an interesting way. ATV ride with Randy was great, he went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. Would come back in a heartbeat.

We knew that the 70+ degree weather the first day of our overnight rafting trip was going to change and drop to below 40. And the forecast kept changing. Windy and temperature dropping when we went to sleep. Woke up to 2+ inches of snow on the ground. But our guides, Billy and Jenny, had thought of everything! We stopped... More

The half-day raft trip was a great way to experience a bit of the Big Bend park on the Rio Grande river. The scenery was beautiful and it was a leisurely 2 hour float. The staff, Billy and Spencer, were knowledgeable about the area and kept the whole group entertained. We had kids from the ages of 10-16 and everyone... More

The river views were stunning and the trip was long enough to show a variety of terrain. The river was high so we enjoyed a few small rapids. The lunch... More

Our guides really made our 1 day rafting trip memorable. We ended up taking a raft down the river (8 people- 2 guides) and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. This is not a whitewater rapids rafting trip- the biggest you'll see are Class II rapids, so it's all about the guides being able to tell you history of the river,... More
