Perfect trip

Giovanni, our guide, was the best! It really was a very good organized trip, the kids (8 and 10) really enjoyed themselves and we had a blast as well! Can really recommend it!

This was by far the best activity of our trek through the Rockies. We did many additional activities throughout our 12 day trek through the Rockies with trek america. We did glacier walking, canoeing, zip lining ... the lot!! However, the most fun we had on any one day was when we went white water rafting with these guys and... More

Superb barbecue on the way, ' "how would you like your steak sir?" De rafting is great, slow start to get used to the boat, the steering commando's and to get you ready for... More

We took the longer white water trip on the Kicking Horse River. Excellent whitewater, 3's and 4's. Our guide, Mike, worked hard to give us a great day. Loved the campfire and beer afterwards.

We went with 4 adults and 4 children ages 7 to 11. It was our first time for everyone and we all loved it and said we'd do it again. Even the one guy who we had to practically drag there! Olie was our guide and he was very informative about the area. He recommended different restaurants and places to... More

Went out with our 2 families Aug 9 with Matt and Ollie-had a great time from the time we boarded the bus! Both guides were funny and informative, and our 10 year old girls had a bit of a crush on Matt! Great thing to do if you are in the area. Would do it again. Barb

The scenic float tour was wonderful. You float down the river and watch for wildlife. Your guide offers information on wildlife, vegetation, rivers and lakes, and local attractions and entertainment. The trip is very relaxing. We saw 5 bald eagles, close enough to view with the naked eye. (Great photos!) There are no rapids. It is a gentle trip appropriate... More

My son, grandson (9) and I had a fabulous white water rafting trip down Toby Creek. The last part in particular from Panorama to their lodge was a series of class 3 waves. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an adventure that is suitable for the whole family from 8 and up. The guides Matt and Ollie made our trip... More

My Dad and I have never rafted before - a float trip is as much as we've managed - so we wanted to try out something a bit tougher. The Toby Creek trip was a great introduction - enough white water and instruction to give you a sense of what it could be like and the excitement but not enough... More
