Excellent trip all around! Spectacular scenery, excellent lunch, and best of all just a fun trip down the river. Have rafted with this company several times in the past over the years and the experience never disappoints.

What a great way to spend a day! Parents loved the experience and the kids were stoked ages 7-14. Everyone of them can't wait till next year's trip! See you guys then. Don't think we have an option. But that's a good thing.
