Dear Annette, I just wanted to tell you how much my family and I enjoyed our river rafting trip. The trip was serene and exciting enough that both my three year old and I could enjoy. It was definitely a highlight of our stay. A definite must for anyone with small children!Anita Grover, Kamloops, BC
