“What a Great Team!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2009

We took an all day trip with Kings River Expeditions in May. What a great day. We arrived at 10am. The KRE has there own location on the river including a large Ramada to eat and given your orientation for safe white water rafting. The spot has volleyball, horseshoes, fire pit and even there little stage location. As you walk up to the ramada you can smell the food being prepared for lunch. This lunch is not cold cuts & cut up fruit like most. This was a complete Chicken Fajitas lunch, including your choice of soda, lemonade and water.
The water was great our guide (Chad) was even better. We had approximately 3 hours of spectacular water time. When we arrived back at the beach we were met with "Happy Hour". The table was covered with popcorn, chips & dip, veggie tray, chicken salad, sodas & beer & wine. A great ending to a wonderful day. Yet wait, we are not done yet... We enjoyed playing volleyball and pitching some horseshoes while having a relaxing beer or glass of wine. All during that time smelling the aroma of wonderful Tri-tip on the firepit. By the time 6pm rolled around we were enjoying a fabulous full smorgasbord of BBQ Beef & Chicken with all the trimmings again.

We enjoyed watching the video of the day (happened to be that our boat was chosen) and was given the opportunity to purchase photos, videos, etc. A excellent way to remember you day. I have just about worn our video out watching it over and over and showing friends.

Having gone on 3 other day trips in different locations my first thought was that KRE was a little expensive. After having spent a day with them and eating the excellent food that was freshly prepared in front of us it is money well spent.

Thank you Kings River Expedition for a great time. We will definitely be back.
