Save your money and do what they call an express trip! WHY? Too much time waiting to do what they call "SURFING". Which basically is Dangerous play with the eddies!! 27 years ago, one avoided getting the rafts hung up in them NOW, once through certain rapides, you WAIT your turn to paddle back up to the eddies......water filling the...

I have never done a review before, but since I am always reading them myself to help me make decisions when trip planning I decided to finally do one. After much research I choose River Expeditions for our family white water rafting weekend. We traveled from NY, (family of 4 with 17,19 year old) and met family from PA (family... More

My son and I went on an excursion (8/10) with River Expeditions and we could not have been more pleased. From the time we arrived at the pick up spot to the point we were brought back after a day of rafting, the folks from River Expeditions treated us great. Devon was the main tour guide for the day and... More

Went rafting with our two kids (18&16). Gene our raft guide was awesome! All the guides that day were professional, entertaining and we felt as if we were in the safest hands possible. Great ride! We are coming back to do bigger! We did 3-4&5 class, Adrenaline junkies now! Lunch was great! Very organized.

Absolutely wonderful experience! I booked an Upper New trip for my two young kiddos (7 & 10), my parents, my husband and I a couple days ahead of time. The day of the trip, my mom became very ill and was unable to join us. Although they were unable to refund for her cancellation, we still feel the trip was... More

Our rafting experience unfortunately took place during the flooding in WV the end of June 2016. It had been booked weeks ahead of time. While no one could have predicted the flood, River Expedition's handling of the situation was unacceptable. The area was under a state of emergency, and the company still put us on the river. The flooding was... More

Thank you for sharing your candid comments about your rafting experience, Anne. Like you, we were disappointed that the flooding temporarily interrupted the section of the river you were scheduled to raft on; however, as the safety of our guests and staff alike are our primary concern, we diverted the trip to another section of river along with all the...

My family spent a weekend camping here and did the full day on the lower New River. It was beautiful and fun, however, if you want an easy joyride, this is not for you. They are class five Rapids and can be dangerous.🌊 For me, it was great! I thoroughly enjoyed it! The guides were really nice and were very... More
