"Hi Team,

I went on the Dead River yesterday with Justin as our guide. I wanted to let you know how much fun we all had. Justin was great and so was all your staff! Thank you for helping us make memories for our family.

"Magic Falls made our rafting experience absolutely perfect. Some rafting guides take you along for “their” ride where the guides at Magic Falls make the experience about their guests. Haley was extremely enthusiastic, accommodating and a pleasure to spend time with. 10/10 recommend this company!"

"We had a blast! Our guide kept us safe and happy! We were able to get in and ride the rapids a couple times. We had cool challenges and it was very exciting! Afterwards we returned to base camp for lunch, the steak was very tender and blueberry crumb cake was delicious. We would do this trip over and over again!"
