The entire day was fabulous for our entire family (ages 4 years old - 62 years young). We got our life vests, boarded the bus, had lunch, went river rafting, had snacks, cleaned up, took bus back home, and got some hilarious photos from our day. The entire HME Team was awesome! Thanks guys! PS: My 5 year old jumped off "the rock"! Just go for it!

The guides are great - funny and helpful. We had Jamie and he was awesome. The rafting was fun and even when we were going a little slow, the guides made it memorable. The facilities are clean and easy to find from the road. The only downside is the hour drive each way - but the guides do jokes and old fashioned music to speed up the trip. Water was a little too cold.. or should I say refreshing... Good rafting group overall.

We had a fantastic experience rafting. The guides (Blanco, Matt, Chris, Ethan) were great, able to adjust their styles to their audience. My children (ages 5 and 7 in their first trip) laughed their way down the river and begged to do it again tomorrow!

The entire staff at High Mountain Expeditions were Awesome! They were Very Professional and made us feel very comfortable. The two young men that really stood out and went above and beyond the call of duty were Alex & Ben.

We Highly recommend this experience!

Very fun! The experienced guide (Alex) was great! The newbies were a little green...and had to be coached to make basic small talk... We didn't need to be chatted at, it was funny! All in all, a great family fun day and we will definitely do it again!
