As a family, we decided to skip the leisurely "float" down the Truckee River and opted instead for the whitewater adventure that the Truckee offers in June. Minimum age is 7yrs, so little ones have to stick with the float.
We chose the Tributary Whitewater Tour because they offered an afternoon tour which fit into our schedule. I learned from our guide that TWT has the best rafts of all the tour groups. I would definitely choose them again.
The Truckee was lots of fun! We experienced several category 3 rapids and saw some beautiful things. We were blessed with Josh--a terrific river rafting guide who shared his knowledge of the animals, plants, trees, and Tahoe (he double majored in geology and agriculture). Josh has 14 years rafting experience and put all of our safety concerns to rest by demonstrating skill and professionalism while helping us have a blast the entire time.
Don't miss this adventure--you (and your kids) will never forget it!
