Exiting experience

Our guide Wolf was great!

The actual raft trip was AWESOME!! Our guide was "WOLF" and he was even better than AWESOME! He scoped out me and my friend very early in the moning, and asked us a few questions. When he realized it was our first rafting experience he got us put in his raft and he made sure we had the best time we possibly could.

W.E.T. river rafting and WOLF, our guide, were so great, that I am online trying to find another trip...and i just got home from my first trip.

Our guide John was awesome. He made sure that we were safe and had a great time. He was very experienced in rafting and the history of the American River. He answered all of our questions and he was funny too. There was 6 of us and we were all first timers. What a great time, thank you John.

They are very safe consciences and worked as a great team. The guides looked after each other and made the rafting trip a great experience. The photos were great and provided great memories for years to come.

A perfect day. Great venue, great guide and great raft mates.

We had a lovely day rafting down the American. Only trouble we had was with the lady in the office when i called to get info on availability and booking the trip. She treated me like I was an idiot. Only fly in the ointment.
