Thirteen of my friends and I went did the lower express trip this past weekend, and it was a wonderful experience. We discovered River Expeditions on Groupon. From booking to the minute we returned from rafting...great. The staff were friendly, professional and experienced. Some of our group were nervous at first, but we were made to feel at ease, and...

We booked the New River Lower Express half-day tour through Groupon. Our tour guide was Tyler. He was awesome to say the least. He had a very laid back and amicable personality which was exactly what we needed as a boat full of first-time rafters. He was hilarious and vibed well with the group. The entire experience was well organized... More

I can see why they get Trip Advisor awards regularly. This outfitter is THE one to use for your outdoor experiences. Prices were very reasonable, accommodations were great and service friendly and outstanding. We had a great day on the lower New River with Dillon our guide. The only downside is the Red Dog Saloon closes early during the week... More

This was my 3rd Whitewater rafting adventure, but my first on the Lower New and first with River Adventures as the outfitter. Outstanding experience from check in at the campground all the way through our day trip down the river. Our guide Sam(antha) was personable, knowledgeable and (IMO) gave us the most aggressive experience of the 3 rafts in our... More

Our group of Boy Scouts did a half day Lower New River trip out of the Bechtel Summit Scout Reserve. Our guide Jake was really excellent, the scenery was gorgeous, and everything was handled proffesionally and courteously.

River Expeditions specializes in whitewater rafting, but offers so much more! Our guide, Dylan, was excellent--he took into account the types of people on our raft and gauged our sense of adventure well, determining which ways of approaching each rapid would give us the best experience. We did a ton of "surfing" and did get dumped once, but I never... More

I took some friends here during the week for 2 nights lodging and a day of rafting. We chose the bunk house since there were do many of us and we wanted affordable accommodations, and wasn't disappointed. I'll break down the different phases of our stay. Booking: simple enough. A rival company had told me months ago that if a... More

Joe Novonty, with over 14 years experience as a guide, made the trip for us. You can tell he really loves what he is doing and ensures everyone is safe while still having a great time. We will be back this fall to run the Gauley and will be asking for Joe. Oh and the camping, BBQ dinner, karaoke and... More
