The Dan River Company provided a great experience. One of my party was a first timer. They did a great job making her feel relaxed. Even though she tipped over a couple times, we had a great time... and a good laugh!

Such a nice morning! DRC was well organized and efficient at getting us on our way to having fun on the river! The kids (ages 11, 15, and 17) had a great time and enjoyed all the rock formations and small rapids along the way.
