Family of 4, youngest 8, excellent trip down the Arkansas River. Spectacular views! Friendly, experienced, and safety conscious staff. Rhone, our guide, was outstanding, very good with our young daughter, and ran a tight "ship". We are definitely going back!

Finally checked off rafting on my bucket list and had a blast. Our guide Joe was excellent with guiding since most of us in our boat being first timers. Would definitely recommend to others and would love to go again.
