We did a "fully guided" white water rafting trip on the Lower Yough river. Our guide, Riley, was terrific, and he navigated us and coached us well through all the rapids (and the flat water stretches). The Lower Yough is rated as the intermediate stretch -- with enough rapids to make it fun and exciting, but nothing too scary -- and it was a lot of fun. It was a relatively cold day, but the staff had been very helpful on the phone ahead of time in advising us how to dress.

This is our second year rafting with UYE on the upper Yough class 5. Our guide was Zach and he was awesome! He is a wealth of knowledge. My girlfriend and I found that we love rafting and we can’t rave about this experience enough. We brought a friend this time and he loved it as well. I HIGHLY recommend UYE for an outstanding rafting adventure!

We appreciate the effort of a 5-Dot review but we are not associated with UYE. They are owned/operated by Cheat River Outfitters which has a Tripadvisor page. I would recommend looking them up and leaving the outstanding review with them. Thanks,

This is a really thrilling thing to do! Our guide was Ryan who I thought was really awesome. A few things that might be good to know. The Lower Yough is the intermediate rafting (class 3-4 rapids). My family of 5 were all first timers and we did this with no problem. It was a good balance of thrill but some calm spots too. The Middle Yough is basically just a float (i.e. boring). People do fall out. We had 6 boats going on our trip. We were one of the few boats who didn't lose anyone along the way. It's pretty safe though even if you do. The safety briefing at the beginning is good. They tell you how to stay in and how to handle it if you fall out. The life jackets are quality. We pulled a girl out of the river and we pulled alongside her original boat which she walked over too. All in good fun. This company has good guides. On the trip that we took, all guides were on their 3rd or 4th season. The scuttlebutt is that other companies have quite a few rookie guides. And, hey, you've got to be a rookie sometime but your people are a lot more likely to get wet with a rookie guide. You can do a trip without a guide in your boat (maybe not during COVID) . I wouldn't recommend it (unless your goal is to get dumped into the water a lot and stuck a lot). You aren't going to have nearly as good of a time. It's a lot more fun to have an expert in the boat with you. Just listen and do what they tell you and you'll be fine. The trip is fairly exhausting IMO. We were pretty spent by the time it was over. But if you are in reasonably good shape you can do it. We took 4 adults and an 11 year old, so even kids can do it. The guides are pretty skilled at the river as well as pulling of some decent comedy during the safety briefing as well as the bus ride at the end (Example: Frog is our bus driver. He used to be a great river guide until he developed a serious drinking problem, so now he's just the bus driver.) Quite a few good ones during the safety briefing by Riley as well. You can buy pics for $5 from their website. Wish I could say more. It was truly a blast. Lots of great memories. We will definitely do it again.
