“Great rafting! Best weekend ever!”
Reviewed 26 November 2011

We used ARO for a day long rafting trip in early October. Our guide was "Dingo", and he did a great job ensuring we all had a safe, and fun trip down the river. The equipment, the facility, and the staff were top notch.

The rapids are not the wildest I've ever experienced, but the scenery, weather, and overall experience was perfect. My date was a 'first timer', and she loved the trip. It made for the perfect weekend.

“Great trip with ARO”
Reviewed 28 August 2011

We recently took the Hudson River trip with ARO and had a great time. Our guide,Critter, was very skilled and also quite funny! I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a rafting trip with an experienced staff. The river is much more tame in the summer but there was still plenty of whitewater to make it exciting. They also provide a chicken barbecue after the trip that was very good.

“Experienced Guides, Great Experience, Awesome Fun!”
Reviewed 21 August 2011

We found ARO on Trip Advisor and are grateful that we did! Of all the companies that raft the river- we feel we hit the river jack pot with this outfit. ARO were professional, courteous and a ton of fun. It was obvious that every guide was extremely skilled and focused on providing a safe and memorable wilderness ride. This was our first rafting trip as a family and we were not sure how our 9 and 10 year old children were going to do on the 4.5 hour journey. We all absolutely loved it! The gorgeous scenery and weather ranked second and third to Gary's first place team -Chester, Mike,Critter, Dingo, Mary, Sarah, Dillon, etc. made our experience!! The ride was great, lunch hit the spot and the delicious barbecue post ride hit the spot! Our ARO trip was an excellent value and fantastic time! I would recommend to all.
