A group of 9 women went to Beyond Limits for a weekend bachelorette party... What a blast!
- Check in was super easy
- owners were exceptional
- campground, cabin tents and bathrooms were well maintained and comfortable
- staff & river guides were AWESOME!
- we had a breakfast, lunch and dinner provided in our package and it was all delicious

Since we had 9 people we had a raft to ourselves and our guide Kevin was really great and made sure that r had a memorable ride down the river.

All of us want to go rafting again and with Beyond Limits.
