Perfect combination of calm & excitement

"I wanted to break up my hikes in Yosemite, so I decided to go white water rafting in between the days I was hiking. Such a great choice and an even better choice of rafting companies. Our guide Joe couldn't have been nicer and more knowledgeable. He showed us a great time. I've been rafting a few times in Colorado and although the rapids might have been a little bigger, this was by far and away a better trip. Thanks again Joe & All-Outdoors. Looking forward to the next rafting trip."
