I have never been on rafting before and this was a great experience. Sam, the guide, made it even better. I wouldn't even expect I enjoy rafting that much. Thanks a lot.

I had an excellent experience rafting for the first time. My guide was very knowledgeable and I completely trusted him with my life. I had an amazing time and looking forward to rafting again in the future in McCarthy.

Very beautiful ride with snow capped mountains around. The glacier water was definitely cold, as it even woke me up! All was fun!

We took the Root Glacier hike with Emily. She was knowledgeable and very helpful. We had a wonderful day and would highly recommend this hike.

Great time and Garret was a fantastic guide. Also Eric our safety boat guide went out of his way to take pics of us with our camera which was greatly appreciated!! Jumping off an iceberg was a highlight of the trip! Well worth the time...More

I think you have the wrong location. There is no tasting room or coffee to buy at McCarthy River Tours. And I doubt very much that they are open today!
