We took a guided tour late in the day July 2012. It was my first whitewater rafting experience. The water is super cold, as it is partially fed by a dam. My husband and oldest daughter have rafted on the New River and in the Grand Canyon. It was pretty calm to them, but they had fun. Our 9-year old daughter thought it was awesome: not too scary at all.

Adventurous Fast Rivers was a great option for us. They were friendly and accommodating, even though they were very busy. They extended the "second run the same day half price" deal for us since we were already on the last run of the day. We drove out of our way to come back again the next morning. Overall, a great time with the best value of any other place we researched.

A BIG thanks to Adventurous Fast Rivers Rafting for one of our most exciting days in quite a while!! Yes, being in our 50's, both my husband and myself were a bit leary about whitewater rafting and almost went with "that big company" which promises the very best in guides and equiptment--and a double price tag!! Thank goodness one phone call to Adventurous sent us their way!! This small, family-owned company aims to please...and does not miss from minute one!! The cost was half of the "noted" company, service with a smile started as soon as we pulled up, there as no wait for a ride to the top of the river, and no boat hauling involved. Our guide, Hayden, was simply wonderful (not only did he give us the ride of our life, but he also instructed us fully on safety and entertained us throughout the 3 1/2 hrs with river stories and history...Thanks, Hayden!!), and the Adventurous Gift Shop was sensational..and had just enough for everyone. Naturally, we bought all 12 of our great "falls photos" (thanks to the photograper who, somehow, managed to make us look like we knew what we were doing!!) and I had to buy my husband the super shirt with "Paddle Faster...I Hear Banjos," as this was definately a day for momentos!! We left with plans already made to return next Spring with a large group of our other 50ish friends to "shoot the rapids"--this time, thanks to the professionalism of Adventurous Fast Rivers Rafting, GUIDELESS, and, in large number!! Thanks to all of Adventurous' employees for giving us such a special day!! YOU'RE THE BEST!!

My wife, daughter and I had a great time with the rafting trip. From the 360 spins, kissing the bridge, spinning off the rocks and jumping from the rock overhang into the 48 degree water - plenty of fun and a memorable experience. Thanks to our great guide and the hospitality of Sue and Steve. We will repeat the trip!

My husband and I took a guided rafting trip Saturday with this outfit and it was great! Our guide Andrew was very entertaining and knowledgeable. I would definitely request him again! The scenery was awesome. It was my first time rafting so I was a little nervous but the before trip information class answered most of questions and Andrew answered the few I had left. I felt totally comfortable on the trip! Bus service was prompt and our pictures will serve as a reminder of our fun day . See you again for sure!!!
