Splendid day on the South Fork American River
, Jul 2022
Clayton, our guide, was extremely friendly, upbeat, engaging, knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor. My party of four had a really great time on the water, and the lunch prepared for us was quite nice. I'd recommend Tahoe Whitewater Rafting to anyone looking for a fun group activity, and a great way to beat the summer heat to boot!

Awesome rafting experience!

We had a great time rafting! Clayton was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide who made the time on the river fly by way too fast. He also prepared a yummy lunch for us. A great way for my daughter (15) and I to spend a nice summer day!
