Having a fear of white water my entire life, this was one scary challenge for me. The team at Alpine was fabulous, especially Ryan. We did the upper and mid-canyon tour and it was a riot. The guides really educate you on what to expect and how to work as a team - they definitely know their stuff. We had an absolute riot and would recommend it. The river was at an all-time high for both water level and volume - what an experience.

Great fun from start to finish. Our guide was exceptional. We were concerned that our 16 year old might be a bit afraid and not a strong enough paddler to enjoy the trip but she loved it. The 18 year old can't wait to go again. We did the afternoon trip on the upper river as that was all we had time for. We'd love to go back and try the lower section when it's open. Felt perfectly safe and secure at all times but still had a high energy adventure with lots of excitement. Class 4 rapids were incredible - can't wait to do more!

I thoroughly enjoyed the day on the Kicking Horse River and my 14-year-old niece had a ball. An excellent guide (Jock) made our day on the river fun and exciting. The other guides were very friendly on the bus, with the lunch, at the cabin etc.

The only drawback was that there is a little too much waiting around. We waited to get onto the bus for a long time and then at the lunch break too. The lunch could have been prepared for when we arrived at the lunch stop, although I understand that preparing for five boat loads of people takes some time and preparation too.

Overall, a super day. I would love to go back and do the harder rapids. We did the Kicking Horse Classic and recommend that for anyone unless they have quite small children. You'll regret only doing the first half of the day because it is the second half where things get exciting.

Friendly reservation staff, amazing and hilarious guides. All very helpful. We weren't able to do the lower canyon due to high water levels but instead we did a double run on the Middle Canyon. It was amazing and we hit every rapid dead on with huge splashes the second time around! I recommend it to anyone!
