I have also been to their location in Harpers Ferry, where I went zip lining and did other obstacle courses in the trees. It was in a very pretty location and... More

We had a great time with Ash and Bobby as our guides. We did ziplining with the whole family (9, 11, and 14 year olds). Some of the ziplining we did as tandems with the younger kids. Very safe and super fun. Highly recommend.

These people really know about fun, a great place for family and or friends to gather and enjoy a day on the river and in the mountains. So much to do. Everything is safety first and friendly. One of my favorites.

I had contacted the folks at River Riders a couple months ago to see if they would make a charitable donation to an auction I was helping organize. I have heard fantastic reviews from friends regarding their services, so I wanted to seek a donation from them. They were more than happy to donate and were accommodating and helpful throughout...

Our zipline guides Melanie and Calvin were first rate. They made the trip memorable for two first-time zipliners. Beautiful views, and much fun!

We went on a weekday and had not planned anything so were happy they were able to accomodate us for 4 hrs of zip line. Instructors were great and good fun to be with and safety was excellent. It is a bit long, so be ready to do at least 3 hrs while we took 4 and it is not... More

regarding the zip line and canopy tour, this is a very fun experience. it can be a little hot mid summer, the best time to do it is in the fall or early summer evenings! they have paw paws everywhere!!!! we tubed as well on the Shenandoah- i prefer the Potomac trip as it is longer.

My husband Kerry & I and another couple Charlene & Dave went rafting this past weekend and were matched with Lexi. She was helpful, informative and a fantastic guide. I had not been rafting in over 20 years. I was a little nervous after watching the safety video. As soon as we were introduced to Lexi, we realized we were... More
