I enjoyed the day on the water. I was very nervous about the float trip but our guide, Alli, was great! She made it fun. We saw some beautiful scenery as we floated and they also feed us lunch. more »
It was the wife’s first time in a raft and she had a blast. Enough fun for the more adventurous and the 12 year old in our party laughed the entire time. Sam was an awesome guide. She is entertaining.... more »
Great 1/2 day trip, water was a little low, still fun. Ethan was a fantastic guide. Would highly recommend this company. Professional and courteous staff!!
We had Maggie on the half-day trip. As a guide, Maggie sounded like a 13 year old girl. Every other word was like. We had been rafting two other times with different companies and the guides were much better. I don't expect a raft guide to be a rocket scientist- but she needs to be professional enough that she doesn't get on people's nerves. She spent some time complaining about different aspects of her job, her customers, etc. She told a story about how she was in remedial English in H.S. and her sister was much smarter. She was a little slow even if she was strong at rafting, her ability to communicate was less than perfect. I would stay away from this guide. My 10 year old has a more professional demeanor than she does and you can be friendly without coming across as an airhead.
