These guys run a good shop. It was with a little trepedation that I would be getting dropped off on top of a mountain with my mountain bike, left to my own devices to find my way down the trail. MRA was great in providing information while we planned for the trip then followed it up with more assistance when we got to town then even more help the morning of our ride. They gave us a map, written directions and a verbal description of what we were in for. Our shuttle driver was personable and has a long history in Kernville. We were definately well taken care of!

I can only imagine that they run all of their operations (river rafting, rock climbing, etc.) the same way.

My boyfriend and I went on a 1 day Lower Kern Class IV trip for my birthday. It was fantastic! Mike was the best guide I have ever had white water rafting. He has been guiding the Kern River for 30+ years! We felt really safe the entire day and had tons of fun. Mike was very informative and would describe the rapids to us before we went through and tell us their names and history, so the trip was also somewhat educational. The MRA equipment was in great condition. Lunch by the river was plentiful and diverse (hummus and carrots, fresh apples, oranges and strawberries, chips and all the fixins to make sandwiches). We would absolutly recommend this trip and company to anyone. The rest of the people in our boat were a British family on holiday and their kids (girl 13, boy 15) they had a great time as well. You can buy a photo CD at the end of the trip, rather expenisive $68, but it is a fun momento.
