Testimonials



All staff were professional, friendly, and immensely helpful. We were first time users and got all the assistance we asked for in an engaging way. We always felt safe and focused on enjoying ourselves and - for me - meeting the challenges of different elements.

We had 4 teens who did the aerial adventure park while my husband and I went biking! All four boys said this was the highlight of our vacation...all hands down!!!

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.

This is a wonderful place. Thank You for your kindness and friendship during our stay at Harpers Ferry Campground and for the helpful information about the area. I'm sure I'll use you again.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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
