A couple friends and I did two trips on back to back days and not only was the river fun and challenging but the guides were knowledgeable, fun, and extremely skillful. Mitch is the man and I would go back to canada just to do a trip with him again! Totally would recommend this

Thanks so much for the review! We're so glad to hear your first time rafting was a great experience. We pride ourselves on having staff that offer that little extra to make the day even better. Maybe we will see you on the Kicking Horse River (our big water river) now that you have your first raft under your belt!

The Toby Creek raft trip was so well organized and all of the guides so remarkably skilled, personable and funny! For a senior who has done very few "adventurous" things in her lifetime, this was a Top Ten experience. Our guide, Andrew, made the whole trip completely non-scary
