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.
