Our guides, Fred and Princess, were a blast to raft with! Fred was able to point out any and all historical points along the way, and our kids (10 and 11) had so much fun! We rafted thru Class 1, 2 and 3 rapids during our trip and our guides did a wonderful job of keeping us safe while having... More

We happened to have a beautiful 75 degree day in April. First we rafted with Albert as our guide. He was relaxed and fun. He also gave a great history of Harpers Ferry as we rafted past landmarks. The town is beautiful. The rapids were amazing. Skull Rock was fun..but the best was White Horse. We returned to RIver Riders... More

My husband took a few of his friends to River Riders years ago for a Bachelor Party adventure. They had an amazing time! When I contacted River Riders recently on behalf of a nonprofit organization looking for a fun experience related donation, they quickly responded and gave us a generous gift! I can't say how excited I am to have... More

I have not been to yet. But definitely can't wait to take my family! I have a non profit and requested passes to be auctioned. I received response within an hour, passes within the week. Extremely kind and professional people here! So psyched that this place is so community oriented! Way to give back River Riders!!

We did the full moon canopy tour. Well-organized and fun! The little adrenalin rush was welcome after a couple of days in sleepy Harpers Ferry. The young guys and girls operating the zip lines were all friendly with a great sense of humor. But safety was always a top priority. They made sure everyone was safe and comfortable every step...

Great experience and great staff. Our group went on the zip lines, first time for everyone in our group. The staff is super knowledgable and you always feel safe while having a great time. They take the time to explain everything in depth while still keeping the experience fun. Highly recommend. We will definitely be back! Have already discussed getting... More

This is the second year in a row that River Riders have donated an activity package to our annual gala, Swirl for a Girl. Both years the package was extremely popular and brought some great bidding action. Thank you River Riders for your continued generosity! The families that have won in the past had the best time!!
