We are a senior RZR adventure group. We plan week tours with trails, activities, meals and lodging. We rank this trip as one of the best around. Killgore had it all. Definitely completed a bucket list. Thanks.

We had reservations at another jet boat company that were cancelled because they had too few people. When asked what other company they would recommend, we were given Kilgore's name. The cancellation turned out to be a great thing, because Kilgore was top notch. Everyone...More
