Our group decided to purchase a video of the rafting trip from West Virginia Adventures ($53 w/tax) and after a week without receiving the video, I emailed Francesca to see when I should expect the video to arrive. No response. Another week goes by and I send another email and she responds saying that all of the videos go out... More

Andy, I completely understand you are upset about your video being lost for your trip on 8/19. We actually talked and emailed several times - I told you we were continuing to go through back-up media and were hoping it would be found. I offered you a refund 3 weeks ago, and you said you wanted the video, not a... More

We were introduced to West Virginia Adventures....how should I say this......unexpectedly. Nevertheless, they couldn't have been more friendly, professional and accommodating to our family. With 4 children ranging between 10 and 6, we could only take a trip on the Upper New River. Although the rapids were less intense, the experience for our children was no less enjoyable. High praise... More

Very professional company and excellent staff! Before you try another company, give them a try! Look for their specials on Groupon.

We came with a group of eighty-four people, mostly sixth through eighth graders. We did the upper New and had a great time. Things were well organized and the guides went out of their way to make the experience great and to share about the history and geology of the river. We've rafted with West Virginia Adventures for many years... More

My friends and went to West Virginia Adventures and we all had a great time! The whole crew was super knowledgeable and upbeat. I was super nervous because I have never been white water rafting before but my guide (Chip) made me feel super comfortable and ensured we all knew what we were doing before we got in the river....

We just got back from an amazing weekend! We rafted the Upper Gauley and I could not have asked for more professional, knowledgable guides. Although I was quite nervous to take on the river, I felt much more comfortable with the guides we had. I would recommend using this company to anyone! They are amazingly friendly and know what they... More
