I brought 6 kiddos (ages 4-13) on the trip all of which had never rafted before. They were a little apprehensive but quickly warmed up and wanted more!! Carolina was our guide and she was awesome. She made the trip more fun with squirt guns and did a great job directing them. I highly recommend this trip to families that want a fun rafting experience without scaring the young or young at heart.

We were very fortunate to have an incredible guide, Courtney (Big Country). She made the experience very enjoyable. She had complete control of the raft, but made us all feel very involved. Her positive, high energy made the ride even more thrilling than I had expected. During the slower moments, she filled our heads with points of interest and relevant history stories. We challenged her to make the ride as exciting as possible and she came though, going through shoots backwards and rubbing rocks and such.

We had a blast! Lana was very engaging with our group, funny and witty. Randy who was our bus driver was entertaining, as well.
Lana took the time to give us a very detailed instructions on the do's and don't's of rafting, very safety orientated.
The river was beautiful and the ride went very smoothly. We were vacationing from St. Louis, MO and the views were just breathtaking.

We were all first time rafters and absolutely loved it! Chachi was absolutely incredible! A couple of times things got pretty intense, but he kept us all in the boat and made us all feel at ease. Would definitely recommend this location and guide! Thanks Chachi for the great memories on our Wal-Dunn vacation!

Caroline was great with our group of 5 adults, 2 kids - none of whom had been on a rafting adventure before! Everyone enjoyed the scenery and mix of relaxing pace and bumps that were just the right amount of thrill for the kids. Highly recommend this for a beginner group; we felt well informed and safe while having some fun on this beautiful segment of the Arkansas River!

We did the half day ‘family’ float and it was the perfect length and ability level. Our guide, Michael, kept things entertaining and informative- plus we had enough info to feel confident and at ease. We loved it!

We wanted something that was calm for our group member who is afraid of the water. This fit the bill. I would suggest this trip for young children or elderly who want a really calm trip with just a few surprises. It was a bit too calm for the majority of us. Demi, our guide was really nice and did the far majority of the paddling.

We rafted with WA yesterday and I was blown away. The entire experience was outstanding. Booking was easy and the folks were helpful. Their headquarters were spotless, and extremely well maintained. We did the Lower Browns Canyon which is very easy and necessary with our 4 year old. Our 12 and 9 year olds would have definitely wanted more, but still had a good time, due in large part to the excellent guide. If you have a family with small kids, definitely consider requesting Connor as your guide. This young man was outgoing, courteous, knowledgeable, and great with the kids. Transport to and from rafting was great, and John, our driver, was a hoot and very safe. We'll be back next summer for sure! Thanks, WA!
