Our Guests Are Stoked About Our Rafting Trips

Wow just wow! My five girlfriends and I came here from California for the full experience. We stayed in beautiful yurts on the water, white water river rafted, had lunch, and finished with extreme zip lining. The entire trip was magical. It was the staff that really made everything memorable. MATEO (TEO) was a legend. He was fun, experienced, knowledgeable, safe, and one of a kind. I would not go white river rafting again without him as our guide
Paris
Amazing experience! I’m so happy we went there. We first had a full day trip, that was So much fun that we sign in again two days later for the class IV half day and was incredible too! Our guide Toto is super professional and made the trip a very exiting journey. Would totally come back!
Daniela
Critter was the best guide! He was very knowledgeable and funny but honest in a way that’s a lost art. Red gave great instructions on the bus and made the ride pretty enjoyable. I want to come back next year and hopefully get Critter again because he made the trip worth every penny. Thank you!
Cody
This was awesome! We've rafted before but this experience was incredible. Our river guide, Lindsey, was the best! She made it safe, exciting, and fun for all of us and our 11 year old completely loved it! Then on to the Zipline, the 9 line classic course was awesome as well with a ton of long, fast, runs! Our guides there, Sarah and Tangles, were great and kept everyone safe and entertained the entire time. We will definitely come here again the next time we vacation in the area!
Michael
Seamless all day adventure" is an accurate description of the half day each zip lining and rafting for our little family. All hosts and servers were friendly and helpful and our guides were over the top attentive, understanding, and capable. When one shows up for an event like this with a six-year-old, you never know what to expect, and neither do the guides, but they adapted to show our little one some really safe high adventure with a thrill level that matched his capabilities
Charles
Overall experience was wild and unforgettable! Ryan was an amazing guide and had many facts about the history of the gorge to keep us entertained between rapids. There was never a dull moment! Ryan suggested the green chili cheese fries at the White Water Bar and Grill and they didn't disappoint! Would 100% book this trip again!
Riley
From beginning to end our day was A BLAST! Booked the Big Horn rafting and classic zip line tour. Family of 5 with our kiddos ranging from 19 to 9. Drew was our rafting guide! HE WAS AMAZING! So much fun! He was so patient with our 9 yr old and still managed to make our teens feel like they too, were on an exciting adventure! Seriously, SO MUCH FUN! Lunch was great and then on to zip lining with Pete and Hannah. Made our entire family SO COMFORTABLE! So much fun to be around! Couldn’t have asked for a better day. Family memories we will cherish forever! Thank you!!
Angie
