Went on canopy zipline tour today. Sam & Elissa were our guides. We all had a great time! Thanks! We will come back again next summer!

River riders overall does a nice job but there were a couple glitches worth nothing. Day One we went tubing down the Potomac but when we arrived 45 minutes before the tour (They recommend 1 hour and I highly suggest you follow this rule), the check in area was very unorganized. Nobody was sure where to stand or what line... More

I love River Riders. I have been coming here for years and will certainly continue to do so for years to come. I have never had anything other than a pleasant experience with the staff - they are friendly and ready to do whatever they can to assist you. I tried to go last year with a couple of friends...

Well organized, fun trip. Do allow extra time for processing on the weekend, but as long as you have all your ducks in a row before you get there, you should be on the water within the hour. Take your time, stop and picnic on the rocks, don't speed through it. The whitewater tubing trip is pretty tame, and not... More

Its no so much that River Riders did anything wrong its just that spending 2-3 hours in lines to register and watch a safery video and waiting for buses, for a 1 hour ride on "white water" is silly. The distance they allow you to float down river to a point where they will then pick you up is very... More

To start, I strongly recommend tubing on the Potomac as a super fun summer activity for adults and confident swimmer kids. We took the "white water" tubing trip with kids aged 9 to 15 and some of them were a bit scared (though I saw other kids of a similar age having lots of fun). In the white water sections,... More

What a wonderful way to get an other look at the rivers as they meet at Harpers Ferry. The staff is very knowledgable and professional on the river. We did the white water rafting and had a blast! Highly recommend this activity for the whole family, wonderful way to make memories. Request Rubio, he has a great sense of humor,... More

Zip line adventure was fun for all of us. My grandchildren, ages 8 and 11. Our oldest daughter (40) and my husband and myself, 66 year old grandparents. Our guides were knowledgeable, kind, funny and made us all feel safe and encouraged to get out of our comfort zones. I would do it again in a heartbeat (and believe me,... More

Our family of six went rafting with River Riders. We had Rudy as our guide and we so happy we ended up with him. Little kids to adults in the boat and all stayed in through the three hour trip. Rudy was friendly, personable, and could take control of the boat and all of our oaring in a flash. We... More
