“Awesome Experience-so much fun!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

This was our first time white water rafting. I was very nervous at first but the guides made you feel very comfortable! We did the Exciter trip in the morning, so it definitely was a bit chilly. They bundle you up and let you jump in the river, which is really cold but such an awesome time! I can't wait to go back and go again, it was probably one of my favorite things I've ever done on a vacation! It is a great experience and something that everyone must try!

“Brilliant guides, a terrific experience”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

As part of a wider Rockies trip, our guide took us to Wild Water for a trip down the Kicking Horse River. I'd been rafting before on a choppier (better!) river - but what really made this was the brilliant guides.

In truth, nobody needed to paddle because the leader is so good. Simultaneous to that, our Ecuadorian friend was hilarious, constantly putting people at ease, telling us stories, and making people laugh.

Out boat had an, ahem, evacuee - which was very funny after the event but our guide was constantly in charge, keeping everyone safe and getting us to the end. Back at the base, there were drinks and cookies.

A really great experience. Thanks.

“fun, thrilling & safe!!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Had a great time white water rafting with these guys. Our guide Ed (from Wales) was fabulous! Really friendly and felt safe at all times in the water! We were provided with great gear so that we wouldn't get cold. We loved that we got a hot drink and cookies at the end and had a chance to mingle with the guides. Definitely wasn't scary but was fun and thrilling!

“Absolutely Fan F Tastic!!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Did the Tradition - picked up and dropped off in Banff by Will - great guy/great guide.
The overall organisation is fantastic, slick and professional, the day - just amazing!!
We had Mr T take us down the river and he made the trip - Top Bloke.
If you have any doubts, worries or concerns about a rafting trip forget them book up with Wild Water and you will have the trip of a lifetime!
Even the barbecue lunch was fab!!
If we make it back to Canada, this will be the number 1 must do - Thanks to all - SUPERB day out.
