We had a wonderful trip down the Upper Tayor the second week of August. Charlie was a wonderful guide and really great with our two kids who were new to rafting. I highly recommend this outfit for fun, professional and responsible rafting!

Great 2 hr float with Huston (pronounced Houston) as our guide. Scenery was fabulous! Scenic River had all the equipment and any answers to our questions. River was down (drought year) but had fun with the kids. Would definitely recommend if in the area!
