Mason and Zach our guides were great. The float was beautiful and the time we had was great but the rapids were almost non existent this late in the year. The only reason it was not a 5 star rating was the lunch.

Hi there, Thanks so much for joining us on the river with Zach and Mason. We are definitely lucky to have them on the team. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the lunch - for many people it is a highlight to be surprised with bread and cookies from our local bakery, 3 meats and 2 cheeses to build your own sandwich, our ceasar salad bag as well as veggies, fruit and drinks. It is limited what we can bring on a raft and serve along the trip, but we are always open to suggestions if you would like to message us directly. Unfortunately, the water levels were low in general this past season and the end of the season we enjoy the blue water and river ledges more than big rapids. If you are back in the area in spring or early summer we hope you can join us again for more of a thrill, or maybe for one of our other rivers with more excitement. Thanks again for joining us and sharing your feedback. We really do appreciate it!

We did the full day experience, and it was awesome! Our guides - Tyler and Quinton, were amazing - cracking jokes and keeping us all entertained for the entire day. Kdis were still giggling about them later that night. Very easy to talk to as well as extremely knowledgeable about the areas we rafted. We all felt safe in their hands! Scenery was beautiful and waterfall was exceptional.
Q - keep rocking that mullet and best of luck on your new adventure!

This was actually a full day. Met at office at 830 am and returned just before 5pm. I will keep this short and sweet - it was an awesome day! I wasn’t sure how my 9 and 12 year old would handle the day but they both did very well!
I cannot thank our river guide Tyler enough. He was funny, engaging and great with all the kids. Thank you to him for keeping our son engaged with Pokemon conversations :)
The views are beautiful! It was really a wonderful experience for us!
Thank you KRR!!!

The group was fun and informative right from the get-go. Katie entertained us on our roughly 45 minute bus ride to where we launched into the river…luckily she ended up being our tour guide as well. She was accommodating to all on her boat, especially the younger children that loved the attention.

The 27km trip down the river went quickly and she knows her craft well. It was interesting to hear of her life back home in Glasgow, Scotland and there’s no doubt she’s planted the seed for a future visit in many of our group. Note that this extended half-day tour option was only necessitated by changes upstream due to fire and may not be offered forever.

The trip wound down with a beautiful stop at the base of a waterfall and a slow moving stretch of the river where anyone daring enough could jump in the river for a quick swim in the cold mountain water.

I’d highly recommend the River Runners for their expertise, attention to their clients and general fun-living and good nature. A great time was had by all.

We had an excellent time rafting Toby Creek with Kootenay River Rafters. The staff were fantastic and made sure everyone had a great time while also being safe. Our guide Rory was an absolute gem! He was knowledgeable about the area so shared some great info with us while we were out on the water. I’ve been out rafting a few times in different places in Canada and Rory and this group were the best! We will be back and will definitely bring the kids next time! Huge thanks to Rory and the crew for making our experience so memorable!

Thanks so much! We really love our crew and Rory is awesome, but hearing that you rated us as the best when we know Canada has great rafting to offer is really amazing! Thanks for the amazing review; we are looking forward to seeing you again with the kids next time!

Fantastic rafting experience, we took our 11 year daughter with us and the ride was exciting but also suitable for her age. The team who guided us were knowledge and entertaining and provided an all round great experience, highly recommend it!

Our trip on the kicking horse river was very fun! Our guide, Peter, made sure we knew how to properly paddle through the rapids and made the 18kms worth every penny. Highly recommended!

Thanks so much Ariel; we are thrilled to hear that you had a great day on the Horse with Peter. He is definitely a pro! An extra bonus - you rafted 22 km, just having so much fun that the extra 4 flew by, haha! Hope to see you again!
