My wife and I plus my brother and his wife thought a rafting trip would be a nice way to end the summer. We were wrong. In defense of the folks who run this operation, there were a few incidents, like the idiot who tried to sneak his dog onto his raft, three rafts full of loud, obnoxious New Yorkers... More

This was my first time rafting and I have to say the guides on our trip were great! Right away Rebecca made my kids feel comfortable and happy, they will always remember their "mama duck".

While well organized, equipped and instructed, if you are lucky you don't fall out among the rocks seen and unseen and discover why the guides in the kayaks are wearing helmets. Hopefully they have added helmets for all passengers by now, otherwise, go elsewhere.

What a great experience, all the way around! We did the Intro to Whitewater, with 4 adults and 3 kids. Everyone had a wonderful time, Becca, our group leader was great showing us how to navigate the river, even with low water levels. The trip was long, but even the kids stayed engaged. There were some exciting moments, lots of... More

We rafted on a Thursday which was only the "easy rafting" tour but definitely worth it. Our guides were super helpful and friendly. We were beginners but that didn't matter. The river wasn't too rough so we didn't need much experience. Next time we want to try the class 3/longer trip!

This is actually the first time I am writing a review. I feel compelled to write this because the company, Jim Thorpe river Adventures, that we took our trip through, deserves an A+ recognition. Our trip was August 21 at 9:40 AM. My husband and teenage boys had been water rafting before and wanted to take a more challenging course,... More

Our adventurous group of 4 life long friends was celebrating a birthday with our whitewater rafting trip. We went on a Monday, and did the easy trip. It was not crowded, the trip was approximately 10 miles/ took about 3 hours. We had a fantastic time and would love to do it again but do the next level of rapids.... More

On the hottest day of the summer we took a 4 hour rafting trip with Jim Thrope River Adventures. We had a great time and enjoyed the chance to cool off on a hot hot day. The staff was very professional with lots on instruction before the trip and several guides leading, following and intermingled in the group. Safety was... More

Enjoyed the day. Glad we wore swimsuits and water shoes. Don't forget sunblock and extra water. We brought our own lunches but you could buy a lunch if you wanted. Spent about 4 hours there in all. Bus that took us to the launch and back was crowded and hot but the drive was only 10-15 minutes. Guides were helpful.... More
