The experience of white water rafting was awesome. Our guide, Drew explained the guidelines well. He maneuvered the raft really well. I was initially nervous, but totally enjoyed the entire time. It was great fun! It is a must do!

This was my first time rafting in the US and probably the most memorable. I went with a group of 36 others and it was amazingly amazing. It was hard to get such a large group together and down to the river smoothly, but once...More
