Tuolumne/Cherry Creek Combo 2-Day, August 22-23, 2011

Mark and Nikki S. from San Diego did a Tuolumne/Cherry Creek Combo trip August 22-23 and had these nice things to say:

Hi Dorothy,

Thanks so much for booking this trip for us. We had a fantastic time. You and the whole A-O team have been great. We’re so grateful we got to paddle with Noah for the two days. He was the right guide, on the right river, at the right time for us. He really made the trip special. We would love to paddle with him again. Please keep us on the Cherry Creek list, we can’t wait to come back. Will you pass our sincere appreciation along to everyone and especially the guides? If it’s at all possible to get an e-mail address for Noah we’d like send him our thanks again for a great trip.

Looking forward to next year,

Mark & Nikki

Cherry Creek 1-Day x2, August 12/14, 2011

Haideh P. from El Granada, CA wrote back to us to express what a great time she had on the Cherry Creek this last weekend.

Hi Dorothy-

The trip was FANTASTIC! I am such a fan. I am writing a really nice review to post- I assume I should post it on your website, facebook, and yelp? Are you on yelp? If there is any other location I should post it, let me know. I will send you a copy of it as well.

And yes, you can absolutely contact me, though I will probably contact you first ;0) I am even considering going to guide school.

It a quick nutshell- the scenery was beautiful, the river was scary (at first), the guides make the trip and make it look easy (and safe) and I know there is so much work that goes into make a trip like that successful. I have nothing but great things to say.


Middle Fork 1-Day, August 5th / Cherry Creek 1-Day, August 7th

Chris G. from Oceanside, CA took a trip down the Middle Fork with five friends on a trip he won for free last year, and came back a couple days later for some more. Here’s what he had to say:


Firstly, I would like to thank you for being such professionals! I took two trips with you this past weekend. On Friday, Erica entertained and lead us through the Middle Fork, a trip that I’d won in a raffle last year. Thank you! My friends and I really enjoyed it very much. The Middle Fork is so beautiful!

But, the skill and professionalism displayed on the Cherry Creek trip yesterday has made me a life-long AO loyalist! I use to raft with another company, but haven’t gone back since taking a trip with you, and I don’t think I ever will. As challenging as the Cherry Creek trip is, you made it look easy. I never felt unsafe, which helped me relax (as much as possible between paddle strokes) and enjoy the experience. Truly amazing work you and your team do…

Thank you again!


Cherry Creek Aug 8, 2010

A gentleman out Boise, ID (an avid Class V rafter) seemed to be pretty impressed with the challenge of Cherry Creek…

The trip was great! Hour for hour, the best whitewater rafting I have yet done, and our guides were super. Yes, please do contact me next year. I try to do one trip a year (and I have up to 4-5 friends I usually go with, although this year everyone had to drop out). We already have a reservation to do the Murtaugh portion of the Snake River (one of Cherry Creek’s few competitors for best commercial day trip in the Western U.S.) next spring, but if possible, I would love to do the Cal-Salmon as well.

Thanks again,

Here is what Travis M’s group of 10 had to say about their recent trip on Cherry Creek.


Your Cherry Creek trip was awesome.  We had so much fun.  Everybody was more than fulfilled.  We were all very impressed with the meeting the night before to orient us, as well as the knowledge and professionalism of all the guides.  It truly made for a safe yet incredibly fun trip.  The food was great as well.  All the rapids were incredible and so far beyond anything that I have ever done before.  We are thinking about trying to do a high water Lower Tuolumne trip possibly this next spring.  If you have any advise about when usually is the best time to do this would be we are looking forward to start setting something up.  Thank you again for all your help in making this trip successful.


Cherry Creek August 29, 2009

A gal from Sacramento decided to put her “Frequent Floater” credit toward a day on Cherry Creek.

Dear Diana,

HI! Cherry Creek was AWESOME!!! It was by far the best rafting experience ever! I was extremely satisfied with the trip…it left me wanting more! I cannot wait to go again next season. The whitewater was exquisite, beautiful and daunting. There is no other river like it, and I cannot boast enough about the experience! Danny was my guide, and he was so fabulous. The best guide by far in my opinion. He really knew the river like the back of his hand! His skills were very impressive! I honestly can’t think of any improvements you guys could make. I love All Outdoors, and will never raft with anyone else! Did you get a chance to go yet Diana? Obviously, I would REALLY recommend it!

Talk to you soon,
Lauren B 🙂

Feed back from a father and son out of Modesto who joined us for the ultimate experience.. Cherry Creek.


Sorry for my delay in responding to your email.

Our trip was absolutely awesome! It was a trip I will remember forever and to have been able to share in this experience with my son before he ships out makes it that much more special for me.

Everything about this trip was first class. Especially your guides, Adam in particular. Adam very friendly and came across as being incredibly knowledgeable in what he does which made a huge difference in our confidence with each series of rapids we went through.

Your team of guides and their focus on safety made all the difference in world. I have already told so many people about this experience which I have highly recommend to everyone.

By all means feel free to contact me next summer for another trip. Speaking of which, do I have to swim across the river again? That was a killer, but I did make it. Thank god!


Thank you to the office with trying to find us a place to sleep the night prior. We got lucky and we able to stay in that Hostel in Gorveland which you informed us about.

Thanks again for the truly memorable lifetime experience.

Cherry Creek Rafting – August 15, 2009

Feedback from a long-time guest and friend of AO on his most recent Cherry Creek rafting adventure.

Roxanne, that day was over the top with excitement, thrills and non-stop action. I was scared, confident, breathless, and astonished at every rapid. It was like each rapid built on the last and was more and more intense. It seemed as though the last 9 or so years rafting with AO was rolled into one stretch of river and made memorable by the unintentional surfing at “unknown soldier” and skilled guidance by Danny Walker…the man!

River flows on time and 1200cfs as planned..CC was kind to me that day.. I was only beckoned to swim with her once..but I kept Adam’s rule #1: “I stayed in the boat”.

I have begun a series of Haiku that I will share with you soon which hopefully will put some fabric to my experience on CC compliments of AO…what an organization!

All the best to you and your future endeavors on the rivers.


Cherry Creek Rafting – July 29, 2009

Feedback from a Cherry Creek rafting on July 27, 2009.

Hi Diana,

The trip was fantastic and the only feedback I have is that it needs to
include a radio spot at the end so we could scream to the world about how
awesome it was.

Such a great memory & I’ve never been more satisfied with an adventure tours
company in my life.

Thanks for everything!

Feedback: Cherry Creek Rafting 7-16-2008

A group of 4 from San Francisco joined us for the ultimate California rafting challenge.. Cherry Creek.


Thanks for the inquiry and sorry it has taken so long to respond.? We all had a really great time!? You have an excellent staff and our guide Noah was awesome!? I feel that what makes this rafting trip different than any we have been on in the past is the learning environment that you have instilled. We all commented how we particularly enjoyed learning from all the guides. They all seemed willing to display
their knowledge and work with us on developing our skills. (of course it is necessary on that river!!) Nevertheless, not only was the trip enjoyable but we all learned some valuable information about the river, and rafting! But of course our guide Noah was the best!

Our only disappointment was that there was not a professional photographer on the trip. It was offered that we could give our own
camera to one of the guides, but we forgot. (I (Nora) was way too nervous to remember!!)

We will definitely let others know how great our trip was and what a thrilling river it was to raft.


Nora and Dan G.
