We went with a large group of people for a wedding. We were placed with the guide Willis for the trip. The workers at the site were nice and funny and entertaining. We took a short bus ride to the drop off location. Once in the raft, we were taught what to do. There were not very many rapids, so... More

My family and I went rafting with this company this past weekend and had an awful experience due to our guide. He had zero personality and actually scolded us and berated us like children on more than one occasion during the hour long trip...for such minor things like stroking our paddle in the wrong direction a few times and falling...

This was an awesome experience! Checked something off my bucket list. Experienced/funny guides. We loved Kyle! Great birthday present for my 8 year old son. But I think my dad is now going to be hooked forever!!! Can't wait to come back.

We had a great time white water rafting. Our guide AJ was so good with us. We had one person who can't swim and is not to crazy about water activities and we had a person close to 70 with us and he was the best. We would gladly do this again. We had a hard time finding a place... More

Last minute day before after Labor Day(we don't know any better were from Fl) we call around and there's only one place still taking people down. Our 1st time so this was perfect. It was a mellow ride with great conversation with our guide John whom I also highly recommend. He was very knowledgeable about the river and the wildlife... More

Family of 5, including 3 boys (8, 12, 14). I was not sure whether we should choose the Lower or Upper Pigeon course since my little one had just turned 8 and was not 75lbs! After talking to a very nice lady on the phone, I decided to go for the Upper Pigeon and that was the best decision. My... More
