I have nothing but great things to say about All-Outdoors, from the initial phone call talking me through the options with the group, to the moment we pulled away from the outpost parking lot, I felt like our needs and concerns were looked after. The office was great, answering questions, and working through logistical things that came up with out group, and the owner was great to work with.

On the river, the guides were professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I was impressed with the food, and cooking. and the skill it took to get the gear boats through some of the rapids. It was amazing getting off the grid for a couple of days, sleeping under the stars, and roughing it, but at the same time really well cared for will doing so. Shoutout to Horse, AO Joe, Gator, Dustin and Dakota, for skillfully guiding us through the trip.

I would absolutely recommend doing at least an overnight, if not multiple nights and I will absolutely be coming back to Tuolumne or perhaps try different parts of the river. Thanks for the memories!

We had an amazing trip on the Tuolumne. Our guide Garrett was patient, professional, smart, and fun. He made the trip feel safe - exciting rather than scary. We were a group of retired educators and he immediately gave us the confidence we needed to have a wonderful experience. And the food was wornderful - the guides put a lot of love and hard work into creating great food in a primitive setting. We are grateful for all that was done to make this trip memorable, safe, and FUN. Thanks!

Absolutely fabulous rafting trip! Steve was amazing as our guide and he took us through amazing rapids with skill, enthusiasm and humour. I had 3 kids with me and he made us all feel safe and in great hands. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience!

We had a wonderful trip with AO rafting. Before we began our trip, all of my (numerous) questions were answered. Our trip was on the middle fork of the American river and it was gorgeous. Our guides, Helen and Gator were the best, teaching us and explaining what to do and Brian took great care of our gear. They were also really nice people to hang out with, and gave us a lot of great information about the river and they were great cooks-the meals were fabulous! I would definitely recommend the three day trip, we had time to relax, take some wonderful side hikes and we were blessed to see an otter family one night. I only wish that our two families could have gone in one boat, but AO is being very careful and cautious due to covid, to keep their customers and their guides safe. We would go again and I definitely would choose AO again!

Excellent experience on the Tuolumne! The one day was perfect for my family. 18 miles of class 4 rapids with one class 5. This was our first time rafting and it was amazing!! Our guide Jack was super knowledgeable and patient while teaching us. It was the highlight of our trip.
None of us went overboard (Jack was close) unless to cool off when Jack deemed the water safe. Since it was August and 100 degrees outside, the cool water was rather refreshing. Jack did a good job of letting us know when it was safe to go for a swim. It was super fun to ride the rapids outside of the boat as well.
The lunch was great. Hit the spot.
We saw 2 bald eagles, and an eagle nest.
Would definitely recommend this company!!

After several trips with All Outdoors, I cannot recommend them more highly. As an an ex-outdoor professional, I appreciate their emphasis on safety. Our recent trip on the middle fork of the American River was exemplary. Our guide Steve was a true professional. Other companies were taking all sort of risks and swimming rapids. Our crew had a great time while not taking unnecessary risks. I will come back again and again.

Great fun with very competent rafting guide (Roan). Fun rapids deep in high walled golden hilled canyons. Even saw eagles fly by. Limited number of rafts on the river.

I was hesitant to bring my kids on this trip, but it was perfect for them - with some thrilling but manageable rapids. Their ages are 8, 9, and 10. Dane was our guide and was great. The trip started on time and moved along at a nice pace. He gave clear instructions about how to paddle and when. Bag lunch on the side of the river. A great day for my family - we are eager to come back!

Did a two day trip Aug 2020 with another family on the Middle Fork of the American River. Guides were Cole, Steve, Kira. They all did a fantastic job! great side-hikes and time in the water, !00% safety conscious, and just all around really took care of us. The other staff we interacted with (drivers, luggage boaters, etc) and the guides for the other group that was there also seemed great, even though we didn't interact with them directly as much. Would gladly do it again and hope to have the same guides.

My son and I just returned from an unforgettable one day trip of Class V whitewater rafting on Cherry Creek. The guides were top notch, the safety a priority, the food was good and the scenery spectacular. Thank you to All-Outdoors and especially to Adam, Scott & the whole crew for providing us an unforgettable experience.
