I was impressed with your entire operation. This inn-to-inn package I will suggest to others-nice!
We have rafted round the world and this is by far the best—best trained guides, best safety, best food, best fun. Thanks.
Really, really fantastic trip! 10 out of 10! Great company. I’m going to tell all my friends about you- Thank you!
Our guide was four star. I was so pleased. I’m a teacher of young surgeons and I grade tough.
I loved my experience here and will definitely be back with more people.
Friendliest guide I’ve rafted with!
I have rafted with several other companies and this experience ranks as one of the best. Thanks
This is our second trip and both times the guides are good people and well trained. If someone was to ask me to recommend a rafting company you would be #1 in my book.
From the first phone call for the reservation to the end of the bus ride the staff was friendly and informative. Keep up the good work.
Good job, as usual. Out 5th or 6th trip with WA. Big fans of WA.
