the employees were fine but the trip was too long and the inflatable canoes were very hard to steer. We had very little instruction. I would not do the trip again.

The trip was overall a very good experience for the entire group even with all different canoeing abilities. Learning how to control was finally achieved before the end of the trip. Thanks for a fun time!

This was a great experience. If you like privacy and independence this is great. There were sweet spots on the river to stop and swim against the current, rope swings, logs to lay out on. Alcohol was permitted. We had a great time and camped...continued

This was an awesome day. I loved that we could take it at our own pace. It was wonderful for the kids.

This was an outstanding experience that I will recommend to everyone. The canoe was clean, we felt secure and stable at all times and the river was easy to navigate.

This was a great canoeing day with my friend and my dog! The staff were laid back but professional and it was smooth sailing with my GoldStar!

This was a beautiful day in nature and loads of fun as a group "rollin' down the river." I recommend it to anyone and everyone as it is for all.

This was a great day! Bit longer than expected for both adults in the party since they had to paddle/steer for the 2 young kids in their boats too. Kids loved swimming alongside boat with the dogs from other boaters. Very relaxed, friendly staff.

This was super fun! Got to the office to check in and it was really easy to get started and at the end, turn around and get back. DO BRING a picnic!! My kids loved the challenge of paddling and there were some really quiet, non-electronic quiet...continued

Tons of fun, relaxing, loads of sun and beautiful views. We took the dog and he did well. Lots of little beaches to stop at and as long as you use your head a little, its a safe trip. You'll see hanging branches (strainers), rocks, and shallow...continued

We arrived about 1 hour late but staff were very accommodating to get us to the river. Once on the river the trip was fantastic - great scenery, decent current, swimming and stopping areas. Our dog and grandson enjoyed the trip as much as any of...continued

We definitely enjoyed ourselves. The weather was perfect conditions the day we went. It was a little tiring the last hour or so, because the river widens and there's definitely more paddling needed. But we had no regrets. The company was great...continued

We discovered the Russian River rafting trip on Goldstar in 2010, and went as a family with a teenager and a labrador. We had such a great time and intended to return in 2011, which we did. Just came back from the trip yesterday, and it was as...continued

We had a great time. A bit more strenuous than I expected. Since there is no keel, we found it to be a challenge to keep it going in a straight direction. At the end, there was a bit of wait (30 plus minuites) to get transported back to your car.
