First time whitewater rafter, and though we were there at the end of the season it was thrilling enough! Richie was a great guide, and the entire AAE team was first-rate. Highly recommended!

Vanessa, This is Julie, we were on the trip together. It was just as you said.... when you go back would you do the next level up? I surely would try it.... it was an exhilarating first experience and it was so fun with you and your family. Ben was a great guide. We kept looking for those mountain goats ;) but they all looked like rocks....
