We had an awesome weekend of white water rafting, amazing food and plenty of down time to fish and soak in the hot springs! The guides were so knowledgeable about the river, accommodating with customizing our meals, and super positive and fun to hang out with. All the kids (ages 6-11) had a blast on the river and on land with the fun games they brought. This family run business is professional and personable. We would definitely recommend Pauly and his team and are looking forward to booking another trip!

It was adventurous and a beautiful journey in spite of the hard rain and lightning. We were in great hands with our guide Tim from Pittsburgh PA. I highly recommend them and would do it again. Chris, the photographer captured the entire experience and added shots of nature to the thumb drive we purchased. Great memories!

Mike our guide from 9/4 full-day rafting trip down the South Fork of American river was amazing. He was great with my 7 and 11 year old daughters. The 2-3 class rapids was perfect for us and my kiddos wanted to raft again the following week. Mike was articulate and very clear at each directions and comments. He definitely owned the river with his 20 plus years of rafting experience. Lunch was delicious too. Thank you Tahoe Whitewater Tour for a great time.

My family, which includes my wife and daughters ages 7 and 9, had a great time on the two hour tour of Truckee. I think we'll try the whole day tour next summer.

Best whitewater experience yet! Very professional guides with plenty of patience and instruction. Our guide, Clayton (Lunchbox), gave us a history of the river, plenty of riddles, and steered us through the Class IIIs pretty much unscathed. We flat wrapped but were able to get out of it okay. Highly recommended!

My husband and I had a fantastic time today! Jon (Juan) was the BEST guide! He was super knowledgeable about the area and a top notch instructor. I can't say enough great things about him and the trip. Phenomenal!

This was hands-down the BEST day of our 10-day trip, and in fact the best activity of any trip we have ever taken to the mountains during the summer (Colorado, Lake Tahoe, Whistler, New Mexico....) We are addicted after one half-day trip and cannot wait to do this again. CLAYTON is the best guide ever in the history of white water rafting! He knows that river better than the back of his hand and led us so well, gave us so much confidence. Thank you! We can't recommend this company, and Clayton, highly enough. Enjoy!Katherine and Rick HarmonOlivia (13) and Neal (12)Boca-Floriston half day, 7/28/16

Absolutely amazing. Service was impeccable from the moment I spoke with someone to make the reservation. They were able to accommodate our group of 25 with ease. Clayton aka lunchbox was our guide and he was cool, funny and kept the trip entertaining and exciting for us. Not to mention he saved my life a few times as l was going in backwards off the raft. That alone deserves 5 stars, lol. Thank you guys for an awesome time! We had a blast! -The Dream Team from Texas!

We were there on June 23rd and had an amazing time!!!!. Our 16 and 19 yr old boys were skeptical and thought Mom's idea of rafting would be lame, but decided to appease me, since I've been wanting to do this for a very long time. Ha!!!! They loved it so much, they have been nagging me for the past few days to write a review. we had Tim as our guide and we all bonded with with, instantly. He was so informative and and kind. My boys dubbed him Timbo Slice!!! By far one of the coolest things we have done as a family. A must do!!!!

Tahoe Whitewater Tours is an awesome tour group. Myself and Mallory Olney were lucky enough to head down the Middle Fork of the American River in August this year. We were guided by Adam Paul and Pauly Miltner and both of them made the experience fun, safe, and enjoyable, which is what you want when rafting on Class III and IV+ whitewater rapids! If you have not seen or rafted Tunnel Shoot, you do not know what you are missing!!! That was one of the most amazing rapids I have ever been on in my life! I would highly recommend Tahoe Whitewater Tours to anyone interested in going on a whitewater rafting trip. Thanks Tahoe Whitewater Tours, hope to see you guys again next year!
