We took 2 separate trips with this company in one week. We did the family whitewater rafting tour and we went tubing. Both experiences were great! I would recommend both and we will definitely be doing both again. Our tubing guide Charley was awesome. The river was up high that week because of rain and he made sure to jump all the way in to get my kids out at the end of the trip. Just a great staff and experience overall!

We took a tubing trip with High Mountain Expeditions this past weekend. Had a skittish 9 year old with us so thought this was an easy way to get him used to water adventures. The guides were very friendly and patient - one thing I would say is I didn't know, maybe didn't read the site well enough, but didn't know that we tubed down the river by ourselves...it worked out just fine, tied our tubes together and he gave good instructions...just didn't realize that, thought the way they talked about tipping guides etc it was a guided tubing...but again it was our first time so maybe it's obvious to others. The vans were nice, the tubes were great, had a bottom on our son's and ours had backrests. Definitely recommend the cooler tube, was nice to have snacks/drinks and a place to put our keys. Overall great experience, except for the 2nd bridge, that we had to get out and walk around. Would go again, would use this company for rafting next summer. Oh! the bathrooms - no bathrooms or changing areas AT dropoff area...had to drive up the road to a public shelter - these were nice bathrooms, but not convenient. Come wearing your bathing suit, but then you have to drive up the street to the shelter bathrooms.

Junior Girl Scout troop 3414 from Durham just finished the overnight rafting trip this weekend with Parker, Kelby and Alex as our guides. All 3 of them were fantastic with the girls. They worked hard to make sure the girls had a great time and that they were as safe as possible. I highly recommend this overnight trip, High Mountain Expedition and these guides in particular. What a blast - we will definitely do it again.

The wife & I had done a couple of prior white water excursion across the country...but based on the weather (rain had the river cranking) and the HME team....a new level has been reached. We had a great time! We went on a Monday, just after school started and we had the ONLY boat on the river! We never saw a sould after we launched. Made it really neat. The guide (Tyler) is borderline crazy which made for a fun day. The lunch was great, the staff was great....A++++ I'd recommend this outfitter to anyone without hesitation.

We went on an all day white water rafting trip with High Mountain Expeditions this week and it was awesome. We have been on other rafting trips in Colorado and Utah but this one was by far the best. Safety was the number one concern of our guides but having fun was second and they truly showed us a good time. Lunch was great. Everything was well coordinated from the time we started on the bus until we got off. Even when I called to make the reservation, they were very polite and accommodating. It truly was a wonderful day and my family and I did not want it to end. I would highly recommend this company for white water rafting.
