Our family had a fantastic experience. The guides were amazing. We felt like guests, not customers.

Brad S Bellaire, TX

This truly was an incredible trip! All we had to do was show up with our luggage. It was beyond our expectations! My Husband was skeptical and I pressured him to commit. He was surprised how much he enjoyed this vacation. He rafted and kayaked for the first time!

Laurie A Pound Ridge, NY

This was our first family adventure trip and loved the experience! To be able to explore areas by biking, hiking and kayaking is such a unique, healthy and bonding way of traveling and learning. We will definitely consider a trip like this again!
