We went on the one day tuolumne rafting day. We are a family with 2 kids of 12 and 14 years old. At the booking I had some doubts whether it would be too scary for the boys (and their parents), as we had no experience. All doubts however dissapeared quickly with our most competent oarsman Joe. He guided us... More

All outdoors did an amazing job on our rafting trip. They lived up to all expectations and exceeded many others. I plan to use All Outdoors for all my future rafting trips.

I had Jeffrey as a guide. Wow what a bad day. It was three moms and four kids we had to row most of the first half due to the water levels and Jeffrey spent the whole time yelling. My children were hot and he wouldn't let us jump in the water to cool down because we couldn't " row... More

Man these guys were great. I took the one day with two teenagers. I'd never rafted before, my kids once. The river satisfied both our expectations. The guides were fantastic. They had great knowledge of how to navigate the river, clearly had our safety and enjoyment as their primary charge, and giving us history of the river and its wildlife... More

The drive is well worth it, but you could also stay on the freeway and arrive at the pick up spot. The staff is courteous and experienced. Professionalism is provably their best attribute.Do not forget the sunblock, however if you do there is a well stock convenience store.

We had another great rafting adventure with All-Outdoors. This trip we took the grand kids and traveled down South Fork Lower Gorge. Everyone had a great time and our guide Kyle was excellent. He did everything to make the kid's experience a great adventure!

This was our first experience at whitewater rafting. It was a blast and our tour guide Brian was excellent and really helped us learn the sport. I would highly recommend this Class III and IV rapids rafting tour! Such a great time and great memories!

We took the 1 day trip with our teenage sons on Middle Fork American river. This was a really awesome and great experience well worth the money. We chose this company to make sure that the experience was the best possible as we won't get another chance to raft for at least a year. With no rafting experience, but lots... More
