"We had so much fun white water rafting. The company was so professional and accommodating. There are a lot of rating companies in the area but they are by far the best! They serve food and beer at the end of the day, too. :)"
"I love the Hudson River rafting experience. I felt extremely safe with our experienced guide, even though it was my first time rafting. It is definitely an active experience, which I loved! We paddled our way through the white water, but also had a chance to relax and swim. Some parts of the river are truly spectacular. It really is an experience to be in almost complete wilderness, floating down a river. Overall, I would definitely recommend it. It is well-organized, the guides are extremely knowledgeable, it's truly worth your money, and it's a great intro to white water rafting if you go in the month of June! "
"We went White Water Rafting on the Hudson and our experience couldn't have been better. We had to re-schedule our initial trip and the staff at ARO was so friendly and accommodating. The entire staff was fun and knowledgeable. It was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone, regardless of age. They have a great photographer as well that shoots amazing action shots as you raft. We were able to get them on a disk before we left. The feast they provide after the trip is worth a mention as well!"
