  • It was a fantastic experience. The crew were incredibly well organised. They talked us through everything at a sensible pace to ensure we were as safe as possible. Our guide, Juan, was brilliant. He kept us laughing, working hard and made sure the journey was exciting. Hundred percent worth doing
  • We did the Gentle trip - two kids 8 and 10 and had a great time. We commented several times to each other how well run the whole show was. There were a lot of people all going out at the same time, but the staff moved everyone along very quickly and efficiently. Marcie was a super friendly guide and everyone enjoyed our float. Would definitely recommend.
  • The guides were hilarious and very informative. They gave us all the help and safety information we needed, and made accommodations for my girlfriends asthma. We had so much fun, the river was fast even in the driest part of summer. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
  • We went with our 10 and 8 year old in the rain. We had a great time! Our guide, Matt, was fantastic. Rafting in the rain is the perfect way to use a rainy day. We all loved the experience. They provide everything you need. We recommend it highly!
  • Marcie was a great tour leader. She was a lot of fun. My kids had a blast. Gentle ride was great for my younger one and then tradition was great for my older kids. Great time! Would do again!
