We had a great time today. We did the Upper James route and it was a relaxing ride. The guide was great and knew what he was doing. Looking forward to going on the Lower James route next time.

My daughter and I had a great time on the river. Our guide was Mike- he was great. We had some sun, some rain, the water was running high and we enjoyed it very much. It was a great first rafting trip for my 13 year old.

My mother in law and some family friends are always looking for our next adventure. While I would definitely suggest calling ahead, RO was the only team who worked my family in on a holiday weekend (we missed the morning session but found a guide for the afternoon session). The rafting trip (lower james) was 100% worth it. It was all of our 1st time rafting. We hit the james with our guide, Arqam, aka guide of the century. We felt very safe and comfy under his direction. He was extremely patient with us and went along with all our corny jokes. Im tempted to go back tomorrow with some of my friends. Thanks for a great time!
