Took my 19 year old daughter, her 20 year old boyfriend and my 17 year old daughter on this trip. 1st time for all of us. Could not have been a better experience. Ewok is the best guide! Ask for him as he a GREAT guide. Would definitely do again. River Rat is a smaller company but they are SUPER nice and great to work with. Highly recommend.

We had our own kayaks and just needed a transport, and the staff couldn't have been nicer! The price was right, the trip was just right-not too long or short, about 45 minutes-and the conditions were exactly as they described. If time permits, we will go again!

2nd time at this outfitter (originally USA raft). Top notch establishment. Booked upper pigeon river trip, but after arriving switched to extreme upper river, Will never do anything less. Only 2 of us in the raft with the guide. "Ewok" awesome guide. Made the trip. Put us right on the best rapids. Surfed one for close 5 min, he knew right where to take us. Highly recommended.

We had Hailey as our guide and did the Lower Pigeon....great rafting to do with kids! Hailey was awesome with kids completely interactive, entertaining, and fun.. our kids loved her and so did we. My older kids did the Upper Pigeon and said they had the time of their life. Would definitely recommend to anyone
