"I want to tell you what a great time we had with your rafting company. Everything was so well organized, so thorough, well prepared, no short cuts taken, so much fun and fully worth the price in all ways. I don't find myself saying that much these days but I say it freely regarding Magic Falls and your staff. Thank you for treating us as guests and yet friends at the same time."
- Richard T, Chester County, PA
"Dave, we had an AWESOME time with you! Thanks for getting us down the river safely. I'd love to come up again this summer... Maybe when it's a bit warmer, but that was the best Cinco de Mayo! You and the Magic Falls crew are fantastic."
- Kelsey H.
"I just had to let you know that the crew from Johnnyâ€™s Selected Seeds had an AWESOME time on Friday, June 15th! Out of the six of us, four had never been white water rafting before and we all loved it! I can speak for myself and tell you I could easily be addicted to rafting! The weather was unbelievable. The lunch was really good and our guide, Chris was fantastic! We will request him again. I do believe we may book again in the fall. I donâ€™t think I can wait until next year! :) Thanks again!"
- Cathy P., Winslow, ME
"I would like to personally thank you for the amazing adventure you organized for Auburn High School last week. The amount of times that I heard the students say that it was the best weekend/trip EVER on the way home told me that this is a trip that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Your hospitality, professionalism, river expertise, and overall easy going nature made my students and I feel comfortable, safe, and relaxed. You present students with a once of a lifetime experience of bonding and adventure and I will highly recommend your company to everyone I talk to!"
- Spencer K. Auburn, Mass, High School
