We REALLY enjoyed our trip !! First time rafting and I have to say it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Our tour guide Jamie was the absolute best and really knew what he was doing which made us feel comfortable during the entire trip. We drove 3 hours for this trip and will most definitely make the drive again. We are really wanting to do a full day of rafting with this company! HIGHLY recommend.
