We had an amazing time with Tahoe Whitewater Tours! Our group of 5 had a... range of experiences: 2 members who had never rafted before, 1 who hadn’t rafted in 20 years, and 2 who had been in the past several years. We all had a great time and felt safe and prepared! They did let us know we might fall out but gave us all the necessary information about what to do and how to stay safe.Our trip was in August on the Truckee River (Class I-III rapids). The water was a little cold but refreshing and there are swimming areas where you can jump out of the raft to cool off.Kiegan was our guide and was great at giving us instructions to get us in the right part of the rapids! He helped make sure we were all having a great time.They offer a photo package with many high quality pictures for around $50. We bought it and were very glad we did!read more

When visiting Lake Tahoe, my cousin and my husband and I all decided that... we wanted to go white water rafting. My cousin and I had gone rafting before, but my husband was a first timer. We went on a 2.5 hour trip down the Truckee River, rated 1-3 on the scale. Our guide, Kiegan, did an awesome job and was so fun to hang out with for those few hours. I really find that many people can lead a tour, but not many are necessarily fun to be around. And this group of guides was definitely fun. There was no nervousness about tackling each rapid, as Kiegan clearly had it covered. We simply just followed his commands, and we were all just fine. In fact, we plan to return in the spring to do a day long trip and will definitely come back to this business. Thank you Tahoe White Water Tours!read more
Had a great time with the family. The whole staff was very friendly and... nice. Matt was an excellent guide who help us navigate safely through the rapids with our limited rafting skills . I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun rafting trip. Buy the picture package (46 pictures on a USB drive) and leave your phone in the car and enjoy the ride.read more

Our family had the best time!! We can’t wait to raft with them again.
We floated the Truckee with Clayton (aka Lunchbox) today and had an... absolute blast. Very knowledgeable, professional and fun. Our party of 6 included 2 nine year old children and this was the perfect trip for them. And Clayton made me feel very comfortable having them on the boat. I highly recommend this company and guide when considering booking your rafting trip!read more

Amazing experience. Staff was great and made the experience fun.Know... ahead of time if this is at your risk level. They provide safety gear to keep you safe. At one point in our trip, a couple boats got cought up on a rock and some folks fell out into the river. The other boats were ready to pick them up. If you follow your guides directions you will do well.A photographer will take photos at specific points of the trip from rivers edge. Those are great action shots and are purchased separately. I wish I had brought a waterproof case for my phone to take photos of my kids in the raft and swimming in the river.Will definitely do this again.read more
Awesome so much fun
Our trip was amazing! We did the Gorge run and the rapids were a bit... bigger than I expected, which was a great thing for us. There was also plenty of time to swim and take it easy on the river, so it was a good mix of relaxing and adventure. Our guide Matt was great and everyone at the company was super friendly. Will definitely return to this place next time I'm in the area!read more
I just took the Boca Run 1/2 day this afternoon.It was a blast! My guide,... Nate, was very experienced, professional informative & fun. The whole team is great!Great attitudes, positive, enthusiastic & helpful. The kind of customer service that is increasingly rare these days. I’m a beginner rafter and took the tour by myself. At all times I felt very included and very safe.I would highly recommend Tahoe Whitewater Tours and very much look forward to my next trip with them!read more

Affordable fun for the whole family ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is the first time our family went on white water rafting and we... didn't know what to expect. Tahoe Whitewater Tours made it easy and fun. It was our (good or bad) luck that we picked the coolest day in the hot summary to get on the Tour and it even rained. Our guide, Lunchbox, really knew what he was doing. He gave clear instructions and we went through the trip without any accident while having the best fun going through level 2 and 3 rapids. In the end, although we were wet and cold, we felt that we hadn't have so much fun for a long time.read more

Prepare yourself for an outrageously good time on the Truckee River's... Class I, II, and III rapids! Our impeccable guide Matt (highly recommend) only allowed us to touch the rocks he deemed appropriate, often spinning our raft into them for a unique encounter each time. While this was my first time whitewater rafting; it surely won't be the last.read more
