This was a fun day drifting down the river. Start in Healdsburg and picked up later. It is just that. Peaceful, a bit of a workout, and an opportunity to sleep along the way after a little lunch. The staff is great and it's all thought out for...continued

Goldstar offers a wonderful price if you are able to go on weekdays. Wonderful time out in nature. Take serious caution while rafting, may crash into trees sticking out on side of river and rocks in the river. Serene! Tiring workout. Fun

Quiet time on the river. You can hop off your raft and swim too!

An absolutely super stupendous fun day! Easy to find, free parking, very helpful and friendly people. The last mile (hour or so) is tiring but it is not as bad as you think when you finally make it back. Bring a good lunch, not too much, lots of...continued

Great day on the river. The staff was pleasant and helpful. There was a very long wait to get back to our car at the end of the day; we had been promised that it would be delivered to the end point and it was not, but otherwise it was a...continued

It was a great trip. The shallow water (at least this time of year) made it feel very safe. The paddling wasn't a lot of work. Just want to point out that toward the end of the trip, people were wondering where the takeout was. Turns out it was...continued

Pleasant river rafting with a slow current to help push you along. Pretty scenery with many places to stop and have a picnic lunch. The company was organized. Only problem: if you don't have cell service to call them to pick you up, you'll have to...continued

Of course, at this time of the year, a little more water would go a long way to make it even more fun. Nice staff, questionable choice of rafts, nice scenery but a long wait to be driven back to our departure point. Would advise to do this on a...continued

It was longer than we expected. We made very slow progress on the river, so it was too many hours in the hot sunshine. The last stretch seemed difficult to finish. However, overall, we enjoyed the day.

Gorgeous setting and fun trip down the Russian River. I didn't realize it was going to be 8 miles of paddling however and my kids got pretty tired by the end. I loved swimming in the river however and the scenery is so pretty.

I'd probably give it a 4 1/2 stars. I had a wonderful time with my siblings kayaking. It was quite exhausting and it seemed like the whole time we were paddling non-stop and it took us about 5 hours to finish! There's no shade so keep applying...continued

Way more paddling than advertised. Inflatable boats with no rudder were unruly & required nearly continual steering/re-steering with heavy paddles. Pretty river; hardly relaxing.

We had a great time. Lots of places to pull over for a swim and picnic. I imagine there would be fewer earlier in the summer though. It was really hot - 102 that day. We were glad we had high spf sunblock and plenty to reapply through the day. But...continued
