Guides did not wear helmets after telling clients they had to wear them. Argued with clients that asked to be seated together. Total bush league of a company. Stay away from them. There are other rafting companies that don't treat clients like cattle!

My Mom just informed me we paid $65/person because no reservation. I think normal is $45, but they allow you to book on their website. We weren't really sure we were going until morning. Kids are unpredictable.
