This was my first time white water rafting, and it was a great experience! Rachel was a great guide. She was knowledgeable and fun. It was thrilling and scary at the same time. I definitely will do it again in the future. I had purchased my ticket from half off depot. I do not recommend wearing strappy sandals because I lost it when I fell out. Also, when you anchor your foot, wearing open sandals doesn't feel comfortable. Things they need improvement on:

1. Renovate the bathrooms. They appear run down and unsanitary. 2. Provide lockers. Guests had to put their keys in a bowl which anybody could have access to. This sets up people to have their keys stolen. Either put the bowl in a secure location or provide lockers. 3. Improve wait time. We waited around for awhile before the safety intro and trip to the river. 4. Needs a newer bus or at least clean it! It is dirty.

I have never been rafting before and was very nervous.I am not a swimmer nor a fan of boats or water but I can honestly say I had a blast and thinking about doing it again next year.My husband had been rafting before we got together and always talked about us doing it together.My husband's cousin and his wife invited us to go with them because she received a coupon via email.Our spouses had been rafting before but she an I haven't we had a blast!!The guide was really good she talked us through it all and also had fun making the raft do 360's as she called lol.I would recommend sunburst for your rafting adventures .Rachael was our guide she knows her stuff on the ocoee river.This young lady made our trip adventurous and safe at the same time.Thanks for a fantastic time!!!!

This is a very great place to go Whitewater Rafting. Picking the right raft guide can make or break your trip. Rachel was THE BEST guide there! She was so fun, patient, and willing to help out everyone. This was my first time Rafting and it was great because of her.
We had a run in with a rookie and his group and we all capsized and Rachel jumped to the rescue! She was AWESOME!
She deserves a raise and more good things! My friends and I came as a group of 10 and my 5 went with Rachel and the other with Tweedle. Tweedle was also great, but not as good as Rachel!. i WILL be going back!
