We visited on 8-2-2013, Our group consisted of 4 adults and 2 fourteen year old boys, we took the 1/2 day trip. I have been on other rafting trips in the past but for 3 in our group it was their first time rafting. Our guide, Dan, was high spirited,(some might say a little on the rough side, but for our group it was a good fit), fun loving, informative and very competent. He really made the trip by joking, sharing history, pointing out things of interest and doing a lot of BSing. Along with the great rafting, we were the pirates on the river and attacked other boats with water and for lost items, like dropped water buckets, drinks, paddles, whatever fell from other boats. He went out of his way to make it a GREAT time. We went through Oak Springs the hard way and ended up losing our two adult men in the front of the boat but with the guidance of Dan we got our guys back in & went on to have more fun. We had such a wonderful experience we decided to make this an annual trip for our two families. We highly recommend HDRO.
