Steven was such a great guide! He made everything really easy and super fun. I was terrified at first because I have never gone rafting. I had a great time and so did my group. Would highly recommend this company!!

We went on the half day, and they want you there 30 minutes prior. We got there at 8:30 for a 9:00 trip and were back in our car headed home (after showering and purchasing pictures) by 1:05
