ARO rafting on Hudson was great! In addition to the best possible weather, the ARO had it so well organized that even in the Covid era we did not lose a beat. Besides that, our guide Bill the "Mad Pupp" was the best guide we had in the US -and we raft a lot and in different places of the world. Not only he was super nice guy to work with, but he made our day to make this trip even more memorable than it already was. He made it fun, adventurous, entertaining. We came with our 12 year old daughter and our friends and their 13 y/o daughter. We have done Hudson previously with different outfitters, but this time it was a blast. Girls were totally at ease even when surfing the waves and having full raft of water at times. It was thrilling yet during every minute we felt that Bill has the raft under control. It was a blast. Thank you BIll for unforgettable day on the river! Our boys had fun too -paddling on the front on their bellies at times. An amazing day for sure.

This was my third time rafting with ARO, and I had an amazing time! Logan is a fantastic guide, and kept us both safe and entertained. The rapids were amazing, too. I will definitely come again next year!

ARO was a family day like no other. My wife and teenage sons went this past summer. None of us had ever whitewater rafted and that did not matter. The guides outfit everyone with helmets, a paddle and life jackets. They explain everything is simple instructions and answer any questions. It's obvious safety is paramount with ARO. We did the North Creek run. It was probably 4 and a half hours of time on the water. The rapids were great, nothing overwhelming but plenty thrilling. The scenery along the Hudson was awesome. You can even purchase professional photos of your raft in action once you return to the clubhouse. I cannot recommend this adventure high enough. It's worth every dollar.

My wife, two teen boys and I did the North Creek trip in early August. What a fantastic experience. ARO supplies all the equipment and they emphasize safety before and during the trip. None of us had ever white water rafted prior to going, but it didn't matter. If you have a sense of adventure, you are all set. ARO will teach you everything else you need. The guides are professional , knowledagble and funny. This is worth every penny. Great company and my family had a blast. The Hudson River gorge region is the Adirondacks at their wildest and most beautiful. We plan on going again.
