    Very positive & welcoming atmosphere! Can’t wait to go back!!! The front desk, bus drivers, & rafting guides were extremely hospitable & professional. I highly recommend Cory & Karen as guides! Thank you all very much for the amazing experience. You made some flat landers from Texas feel like a part of the family in Wyoming!!

    We had a group of 9 and had a blast. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate they accommodated us well and made the trip fun! Corey was a blast on the scenic float and Karen was hilarious on the rafting part. Great customer service and friendly, even when we had to make some minor changes to our reservation. Would most definitely recommend them and use them again if we are in Jackson Hole!

    We had a great time on the rapids. The staff was very helpful and the bus ride was convenient and easy. They are requiring face masks right now (June 2020) for the bus ride which we didn't know about, so make sure to have something to cover up with. The raft was a lot of fun and our guide was great too! It was thrilling and I never felt worried since the guide told us exactly what to expect and when to expect it. We look forward to our next trip with them.

    Wickedly awesome time! Nolan was an excellent guide explaining how the rapids evolve throughout the season. Jumped in the Snake twice and saw 2 bald eagles perched together. Lunch counter.....

    Great adventure. Some of our group did end up going in the water at the Lunch Counter rapid. But we had good instructions before hand about what to do when that happened. Very exciting and beautiful scenery. Saw eagles :0)
