We had a great time! Our guides were funny and very helpful. Very nice employees. Everyone that worked at River Riders made you feel like family and not a customer.

Tigger and Jacqueline were excellent, and the tour was great. It ranked right up there with the one we did in Maui! The location along the Shenandoah is beautiful. Everything seemed well run, and the staff we had contact with were great.

This was our groups first White Water Rafting experience and it was the most pleasant. EVERYONE was more than gracious. We are planning to return. The amenities were more than expected.

Greg Simmons and his family joined us in May 2009 for a rafting trip. He felt compelled to share his experience. Please read about it.
My wife and I took our granddaughter Sasha to a whitewater rafting trip on Shenandoah River. It was wonderful experience for all of us. We wanted to thank all the staff at River Riders and especially our guide Chris. He is a highly professional and very entreating person but most of all has a great sense of responsibility. As grandparents we were worried about the trip safety. He made our trip enjoyable and memorable. The rafting was excellent. Our granddaughter was much exited. We told about the trip to all our friends and suggested to get their grandkids and kids to the River Riders to have great time together.

Just wanted to thank Matt, Shane, Smitty and all the staff at River Riders- we had a GREAT time this weekend and you all were so great- we will definitely recommend you to everyone and (when its warmer) we will be back!! Thanks!!
My husband Gordon and I wanted to say again how much we enjoyed our whitewater trip on Sunday. Our guide Isaac was fabulous. We were disappointed when we went to get our group picture and he had already ridden off on his skateboard! So, we took the best thing -----BEN!! What a hoot he was... We also enjoyed the ride back with Nick's witty stories!!!! And who could forget Shane and his wild man, untamed look. For a stay-at-home mom, this was truly an exciting day. You all have a first-class operation... We are ready for our next adventure!!! We will definitely return next year, kids in tow...
Hope you enjoy the picture.

I wanted to thank you for the accommodations you made for us. The kids had a great time (adults too!). The rafting was excellent. I will make sure I encourage other Scouting organizations to consider using your company. The dinner was well received as well. The boys were very excited about the trip, and the enthusiasm continued when we returned to Brunswick Family Campground and found that a Girl Scout troop was setting up next to us. That created an entirely different set of problems for us!

I just wanted to let you know the outstanding experience my friend John T and I had this past weekend on our three day introduction to kayaking weekend. We enjoyed three wonderful sunny days on your rivers. I especially wanted to thank Kevin Hughes for the outstanding job he did instructing us. The entire weekend we both felt that he was closely paying attention to our progress, understanding our experience levels, understanding our weaknesses, and working with us so we had an enjoyable time and felt safe throughout the three days on the water.

Hello....I wanted to let you know what a great day I had doing the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers today with KEVIN HUGHES as my instructor for a sit on top kayak. He inspired confidence and was extremely articulate in his explanation. I not only had fun but can't wait to do it again in a decked boat.You have a very valuable employee and I hope you reward him accordingly as he deserves it.!..thank you..

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the really wonderful time had by all at the recent Team Building event that you put on for our group. We will look to River Riders in the future, with confidence and trust as we put our "event coordination needs" in your very capable hands.

I went with a bunch of friends to celebrate my birthday. It was so much fun, our guides Ben and Anthony were so cool! Then after we had pizza and cake we hung around for a while with all the guides just chillin. Everyone there is so cool, so chill thanks for making it one of my best birthdays...we are definitely coming back before the summer is over!

Well I have to admit I was a little nervous. When we first arrived we were greeted in a warm, friendly manner. Informed of the changing rooms & lockers. Then we had our video. It was good. Informative. THEN THE PARTY STARTED!!!!! We got our jackets, paddle, and helmet and we were rockin. Our guide Genell B. was awesome, she was funny, told us about the river and another historic events. She was very professional. The rafting was wonderful and we will be back for sure. It was awesome.*BEWARE* of the hill at the end of the trip it is steep. Thanks to Catfish for keeping me laughing. We will be back for sure.

Thank you for the great experience. My husband found your web page when we decided to visit some friends in Maryland; so we decided to go river rafting. I have to confess, I was not 100% convinced I could do something like that, but it was great.
Anthony was our guide and he really did a great job teaching us how and when to paddle, some of the history of the place, and even he learned some Spanish from us. The other 2 riders in the boat where from Peru and Venezuela, so we were talking in Spanish and English and having a great time. We are planning to visit Maryland again in the near future, so we will be ready for some white water rafting, maybe class 5.... Take care!

Lauren, Thanks again for setting up this absolutely fabulous trip. The work of you, Amanda and your staff was truly exceptional on every level from the minute we were picked up at the KOA up through the drop-off. Our Troop is already excited about doing this again next year and as a result would like to expand the activities we do with the staff from River Riders. Please pass on our congratulations to all and we look forward to seeing you again next year. Best Wishes

What can I say about my very first rafting experience 9/1/08? It was AWESOME! I was a bit apprehensive, but also very eager for this to begin. Michael was our leader and he is simply fantastic! He kept us laughing and at the same time was wonderfully knowledgeable about the history, flora and fauna and was alert and careful with all of us. The day was perfect and the river was so beautiful. I loved every minute of it, even when I found myself on the floor of the boat. I can hardly wait to do it again. Thank you thank you thank you River Riders and Michael. I will certainly be a REGULAR VISITOR.
