Great Time with Experienced Guides! It was my first time rafting and we were in great hands. Our guide was great in helping us navigate the rapids and giving us background on the topography and wildlife. This company has the most experienced guides in town and they do a heck of a job. Would definitely use them again!  -Dave M.
