Everything was well organized, the guide was great (we had Becca), and the best surprise was the great meal that they provided in the end. I was expecting a burger, but it was a proper steak and rice and bread and cake and slaw meal.

My niece wanted white water rafting on her birthday trip, but our other destination was Acadia, so we opted for the Cheap Thrills trip on the Kennebec. This trip has a lower price and includes most of the rapids, but you disembark midway. It was...More
