    “Our guide was very experienced,professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the area along the river. He made sure our safety equipment fit properly. The water was a little low that day so we did get stuck on a few boulders but the water was warm, the day was cloudy with a few rays of sunshine. We experienced level 1 & 2 & 3 rapids so my wish for this experience was fulfilled. My husband and I had a very good time and will consider doing this again.”
    “This was such a fun experience! We were paired with Harry and he was an amazing river rafting guide. The rafting was fun and he made sure everyone stayed safe. We will have to plan to go back again in the spring when he said the rapids are more active.”
    “Great time, fun guides!”
    “Terrific guides! Harry and Olivia (our raft) and Katie (bus tour).”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Mark,  Terrific! We love it!  Cheers,  ​Kasia
    “Though it was cold, the fall rafting was stunning, what with the multi-colored trees and many types of bird. Our guide was really fun.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Thanks for writing in. We are glad to hear you had an awesome time besides the chilly temps. I'm sure the beautiful fall scenery made it worth going late in the season. Thanks again and enjoy your weekend!  Best, ​Brooke
    “Excellent, best time of my life.”
    “The guide was great and so were the rest of the people working there. The river just didn't have the rapids we were hoping for. We need to go earlier in the season.”
    “This trip was the second whitewater that we have taken and it was the best, so far. Our Guide, Anthony, did an excellent job with pointing out local interest points. He also has great rafting skills. This is a trip we would love to do again.”
