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!read more

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.read more

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.

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!!!!read more

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!read more
