The staff were exceptional, the scenery was magnificent and the trip was a blast. We really enjoyed all aspects of this trip, from the bus ride to the rapids.

Booking was easy. Guide staff was very enthusiastic. The weather was perfect, the water was warm. Personally little more rapids would've been nice so perhaps going earlier in the season when the water is higher would've yielded a more intense ride but not complaining.

Absolutely loved this adventure! Starts off with nice floating down the river. Jump in and out of the boat to cool off. Then hop in and hold on for a hell of alot of fun! Amazing crew/guides from the amazing driver/photographer/bus backer upper to the guides running the boats down the river. We are a family of 5 with my youngest being autistic which makes every adventure a bit of a challenge but with the professionalism layed back patient personality of our guide it was made easy, fun, no stress just straight up laughter and excitement. Kyle was our guide on the boat and he was amazing with finding ways to keep everyone laughing, engaged and even managed to find ways to help my autistic son focus and enjoy the entire experience with no hiccups at all which is an amazing feat! So I tip my hat at this amazing hard working crew from Fanny and her hard biking from picture op to picture op and driving to Kyle and his ingenuity with how to make sure (EVERYONE) leaves with a fantastic experience. Also would like to add that you enjoy this trip from the minute to pull out till the minute you walk off as even the bus ride is made fun! We will return!! If you decide to go on this fantastic fun (which you definatly should) give them a big tip at the end cause damn they work hard and do an amazing job!! Worth it!!

We had a great time with this tour company. The guys were fun and knowledgeable. We have rafted before in more challenging waters, however the kids had even more fun as a result of the awesome tour guides !
