Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Manchester, United Kingdom on August 31st, 2013 From A to Z: perfect. Pick-up at the hotel was on time, we were brought to their office and outfitted with rain slickers and life jackets, given some instructions and off it went on a fun rafting ride that got nice and exhilarating without ever feeling actually unsafe, and finally, we were dropped back off where we started at the end. If we're ever back in Jasper, we'll definitely be looking this company up again. Cheers, Matt and Lizzie.
