Absotutely amazing, exciting, safe, and thrilling adventure. My family and I went on the full day tour. We definitely will be going back. They feed us a great lunch. Our guides, John and Romen, were terrific. My 3 kids ages 12, 9 and 7 couldn't get enough and wanted to hit bigger rapids. Absolutely AMAZING!!

Really enjoyed the experience provided by SoCal Rafting. The operation was well-organized and the entire staff were friendly. The rafting guides Roman & Robert were fantastic guides, both extremely knowledgeable and a lot of fun; they made it memorable and enjoyable...felt like I've know those guys for years. They also did a great job of navigating the water and showing... More

3 senior citizens ranging from 69-79 went on a "two hour tour" and we were completely thrilled. Our guide was very clear about safety instructions and it came in handy. The water is super fast this year. My husband "went swimming". David leaped for him and brought him out of the water quickly. Two of us went down the river... More

Had a great time rafting. We had a great guide named Robert that made the experience outstanding. Robert was professional and made the trip down the river super fun. Great experience overall. If you can ask for Robert to be your guide!

The whitewater rafting trip I took with my husband yesterday with Robert as our guide as an absolute blast. It was about a 2 1/2 hour drive north east of Los Angeles where we live, and the drive went by really fast and it was a beautiful scenery(once you get through stinky Bakersfield). We did the Los Angeles Blitz Rafting... More

This was our first time rafting so we decided on the 1 hour Hollywood Hustle. We had a group of 7 which required us to take two separate rafts. Our guides, Clayton and Alonso, were so friendly and informative. We had two young kids with us and they made sure they were safe and secure for the ride down river.... More

This wasn't our 1st rafting experience, but we had fun. The guides were so energetic and friendly. I recommend to those who are interested in doing this to wear water shoes. Avoid wearing flip flops because they can easily float down the river. You can buy water shoes at any sports store and I think they also sell water shoes... More
