This is a new trip for us! We are sure it's going to be five stars! Join us and be the first to review.
Reserving this trip was quick and easy! I have now been on 3 trips with Holiday River Expeditions and they keep getting better every time! The guides were very knowledgeable and did an excellent job teaching us the natural history which made the trip even more enjoyable! Thank you Holiday!
We had a few problems with the tent. We had a tent pole failure, which the guides remedied immediately. Also, the zipper on the tent failed (separated in several spots). Due to the slow/low flow of the river, there wasn't much time for hiking. I understand that two additional days are being added for future trips to address the low flow. I would like to give a special thanks to our guides and trip leader. Thank you, Susan! She is very knowledgeable, about geology, history, and surprisingly the stars.
You can't take a Holiday trip and not mention the food. Such great recipes. One had to try everything. The guides also were able to handle tourists with specific eating restrictions.
One unexpected, but appreciated, was the addition of night 'pee' buckets. I am certain they will lead to cleaner campsites. It is hard to make it down to the river in the dark in the middle of the night. I hope they are offered on all Holiday trips.
Again, I want to express my thanks to the guides. As beautiful as the river was it wouldn't have been as special without them. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Sam and Jack were great guides! Great trip! Thank you for accommodating this vegan so well!
The office staff was very helpful before I booked when I had a lot of questions. They were great at answering my questions and that made me comfortable to book. I was hoping for a brief check-in prior to the trip, especially with COVID going on, but guess it was not really necessary as I could have just called. The information was very easy to search for and great photos and details on the trip. Everyone was great. I would like to acknowledge Susan, who was a phenomenal trip leader and very informative about the history and geology of the area. Rolf was amazing and fun as well. I can't say enough about all of the guides, but those were the two that I paddled with. Can't say enough good things about them and Susan was the best. I would request her if I do another trip! This was my first overnight raft trip and I could not be more impressed with Holiday River. The guides were phenomenal, the scenery breathtaking and everything was super organized. I read all of the reviews about how good the food was and had a hard time believing it, but it was amazing and something to look forward to. We even had a floating lunch that was fun to observe. I will be back.
