An all around great experience. We are traveling with a 15 year old and a 5 year old. Both were entertained and the 5 year old was patiently humored at every turn. Our guide, Mattie (Matthew), was experienced, informative, and all around amazing. Highly recommended!!

My husband and two teenage boys went rafting on a class 2-3. We loved it!! We have rafted in Colorado before and thought it was very comparable. Exciting enough for the boys and beautiful scenery! Hans was our guide and was GREAT!!
