We went rafting with River and Trail and had a very enjoyable day on the river. The water was low but you know that going in. I have done several whitewater rafting trips and this one ranks right up there. The staff was very friendly and enjoyable to be around. I had my 11 year old daughter with me. I was very pleased with how family friendly everything was. I think the 14 year old boy in our boat even had fun and that says something.
They skillfully take you through the rapids but then allow you to play some too. I thought they did a great job of managing the diverse wants of the group. I would highly recommend this trip to my friends.
Thank you RTO for a fun filled day this past Saturday. This was my first time using River and Trail and I am very pleased with my experience. We, being myself, my son, his friend and friend’s father, started the day with biking on the C & O Canel from Burnswick to Harpers Ferry and back. We grabbed lunch then headed off the the tubing part of the trip on the Potomac river. We all had a very good time. My adventure started with a Groupon offer. The reservation staff was very pleasent to work with, even with making a number of changes and even a last minute date change. Everyone that we had contact with from the biking check in to the tubing check in and pick up at the end of our float was very helpful. I would use River and Trail Outfitters again.
Went last week with my 2 boys. First time white water rafting for us. We all enjoyed it immensely. The day was picture perfect. teh river and surrounding natural scenery were beautiful and we had the best guide, Jake R., who was very knowledgeable on local history and animal life which was very interesting for me but more importantly, he knows like no one else how to manuever the raft which made it a blast for my boys.
Great trip with great guides. Allison, the tour guide was the best, and so funny. I wish I could remember our raft guide’s name but he was young and so experienced. He managed to give us a thrill that I don’t think we would have gotten on any other rafting trip. The owner of this place must take great pride having this kind of talent working for the company. I recommend this tirp for sure and it’s 4 hours of non stopy fun!!!
I have just completed my third trip in 3 weeks with River and Trail. The registration is very easy, either by phone or online. The office staff was very helpful (even when I called in with a late registration!) and courteous. On the white water raft trip, our guide was engaging and found ways to make us all laugh and have fun. The kayak trip to Sweetshine was a fabulous retreat on the Shenandoah with a tasty finish. Today I had the pleasure of kayaking on the Antietam Creek with 2 incredibly knowledge guides and had a delicious brunch. The opportunities to commune with nature and learn about the area history are very much appreciated. Thank you for making these opportunities available!
