My husband, our daughter, her boyfriend, and myself had a wonderful time at ERO. The people there were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Avoid the big tubing places, and visit a place that cares about your experience. I highly recommend this place and will be visiting them next year.

We took kayaks down the river for an hour and had a great time. The "lazy" river was just what we were looking for. Just the right amount of small rapids and calm flow. Perfect for relaxing or for beginners. The staff was polite and helpful. The pickup was on time as well. Will do it again.

My 11 year old granddaughter and I did this tubing trip. Easy in & out, nice relaxing float. This is a great trip for families with smaller children, not a lot of rapids. The staff was very friendly.

Nice people and a great float. All 4 of us got kayaks & did the 3 hour float. It felt a little long, but one hour wouldn't have been long enough. The rapids were a lot of fun.. Just the perfect amount.

The staff was extremely kind and helpful. The shuttle was prompt and not at all crowded (unlike 22 people in a van, like other outfitters.) We've been running this river for a couple years and are now staunch supporters of ERO!

My family had a great time. The one-hour float was fun and the employees were friendly and welcoming. Next time we will go for the three-hour float and we will definitely use Ellijay River Outfitters again.
