We had the best time. We took a half day trip and the river was very high. Jac was a delightful guide and Echo Canyon a top notch company.

He also took the time to spend some quality time with us at the 8 Mile Bar and Grill (excellent food) and gave us directions to an incredible local hiking trail. We are planning to do it... More

This was my first experience with white water rafting and while I was nervous, my nerves quickly faded as I was immediately impressed with the professionalism of the staff and the cleanliness of super-nice facility.

Thanks for your review, and of course for joining us for a raft trip! We do our best to make changes like we did with your group - I'm glad to hear it worked out well. If in doubt, we do tend to recommend the lesser of trips, but it sounds like your upgrade ended up being your perfect trip!... More
