Rafting/IK Combo 1 Day / April 14, 2017

Reservation Experience: Excellent. I had some issues trying to do it online and called - super helpful and still got the advertised deal.

Pre-Trip Materials: Excellent. Orientation video helpful ...although Joey just got filmed for what to actually do on a raft and that would have been great to watch. Although not really needed on our weekend, great that you ask all the wet suit size info before hand as imagine when busy you run out of stuff.

Guide Service: Excellent. Joey and Ben were awesome and reassured my fears ...for my kids and myself. Fun to have Marti, a guide, as just a passenger too.

Trip Experience: Excellent. Get a sauna or spa to warm us up! Sad no camera man/woman like usual but we also know just the start of the season.

Rafting/IK Combo 1 Day / April 14, 2017

Reservation Experience: Excellent

Pre-Trip Materials: Excellent

Guide Service: Excellent. Joey was great in his experience. He could be more open and explain some of his great adventures. He seems like he wants to be the leader of the pack and that takes a lot of work and fortitude. I hope he stretches himself, as I see a great powerful leader in Joey. Ben did a fantastic job with clearly explaining the rapids, path we take, and was outstanding with my kids. Great paddling with him.

Trip Experience: Excellent. River rafting is one of the finest experiences a person could have. the rolling waters, the beautiful nature... and the people you paddle with all make River Rafting a loving experience. Siera South is fantastic as putting together a great package and marvelous experience.

Trip Experience: Excellent. We all had an amazing, fun, exhilarating and memorable time thanks to our guide. I was surprised and impressed by our guide and our driver's warmth and personal interest in our group. We know they see people all day long yet we didn't at all feel like just another number to them. We'll be back next year!!
