I have been here twice before (now three times) to enjoy the rafting; the guides are very friendly and have amazing skills! This time, I tried kayaking (first time)! The instructors are very patient, are understanding of each adult's challenges, and are terrific people. They break down each skill into smaller steps and most importantly make the adventure a lot of fun! Lau and Brooke were unbelievably helpful with great advice. The evenings were fun at the clubhouse and the live entertainment was an added bonus. I hope to return next summer :)

I look forward to this trip every year. This one makes three and I am never disappointed! Good food, good time, and awesome Rapids! Great place to learn whitewater kayaking. ;) The guides work very hard to make it a fun and safe experience. Love this place! See you guys next year!

My family recently went on an excursion with Wilderness Tours. The day was extremely cold, but they provided wet suits at no additional costs, and our guides were very positive and upbeat - making the cold seem not so bad.

We took the 12 person raft because we had a couple people in our group who were not good swimmers. The guides took excellent care of us, ensuring we all had a lot of fun while making sure the non-swimmers in our group felt safe. I personally had a blast and would love to try the 6 person rafts next time!

In addition to the excellent rafting experience, they have numerous activities back at the lodging facility. The meals were tasty and they happily accommodated for any allergy restrictions of people within our group.

We all had great fun and would recommend to everyone, regardless of how comfortable you are in the water, to try this excursion! I definitely would go back without hesitation.

Third summer at Wilderness Tour and plan on going back next summer. Each year we figure out a way to improve our experience. This year we upgraded to the 6-person sport raft on the first day. We all felt like we were closer to the rapids and it was a much more enjoyable and adventurous day on the river. The second day we upgraded to the guide-your-own 2-person sport Yak which takes you down another channel of the river and this was the best day ever for my daughter and our French exchange student. As it was a different part of the river, the lunch spot and menu was different which also added to the experience. All in all, a great 2 days rafting and a comfortable sleep in the basic wood cabin. Can't wait til next summer
