The trip was very well organized and David was an awesome guide and went out of his way to make sure all of us were having a good time. I would highly recommend him.
Ryan was a great guide! He ensured all of us had an adventure we won't soon forget! David was fantastic with communicating our reservation and everything that was expected of us. Can't wait to book another trip with Valley to Summit!
the package was recommended by my sister
we really got the best deal for the price . loved the atmostphere that the trainers set before we began.
Awesome Day!!!! Met wonderful new friends- guide was amazing!!!
a lot of waiting around before the trip started, and also while paddling... we'd paddle for a while, and then wait... and paddle and then wait.
Great experience on the river last weekend. Had a food time and got to make some new friends. Very pleased! Thanks
It was all that I had hoped for and more. The experience allowed me to experience the beauty, inner peace and fun that nature can provide when rafting down the river. David was the perfect guide and made everyone in the raft have fun and feel safe. I would definitely do it again. Thank you
Guide was very pleasant to interact with. Atmosphere was exciting. Would do it again.
Rafting was a great experience. However the zip lining and paint balling were severely below my expectations. I would do this adventure again would opt to only go rafting
I never did this before but had a great time and am looking forward to next year!
It was a great deal! So much fun!!! And Mike was awesome and very helpful!
We enjoyed the rafting part although lunch was just so so & standing in the woods with no place to sit or use a bathroom was very uncomfortable to say the least
The rafting portion of the trip was great. Perhaps because of that, our expectations were set too high for the other portions of the trip, namely the paintball and zip line, which were,well, a bit underwhelming
We loved this challenge, I gave this to my boyfriend as a birthday gift and he absolutely loved everything about it. It was perfect and the price was even better. We did white water rafting, zip lining and paintballing. We will definitely do it again.
This was an amazing experience and we had a ton of fun. Dave helped accommodate me and my husband and we couldn't have asked for anything more!! Thank you for helping us out!!
I had a lot of fun, the staff was very patient with my group during the white water rafting excursion. I will definitely be returning, hopefully with a bigger group.
The trip was great once started. Very chaotic to get going and I do not understand the purpose of valley to summit vs whitewater challengers.
It was a good time overall. I did not know that guides would not be in the rafts with us, that have made me feel more comfortable and safe. Everyone in our raft was knocked out at one point or another. At one point out raft became stuck on a rock, filled up with water, swept us all out. It took several mins before the guides were able to come and help us. Definitely more adventure than I anticipated. Also there should be a more secure place to store car keys. Put the board behind the counter - have people leave their drivers license to retrieve their key (just like you do with the gear rental). Install pay per use lockers.
Zip line and paintball weren't all that exciting as expected.
Great people. Very capable and likeable guides made ours a safe and fun journey. Well organized program. Beautiful day. Could not have asked for anything more. Thank YOU !!
I chose this rating because it was a very fun day! Everything was well organized and planned. Great people, great lunch, overall great experience!
Great trip, beautiful scenery & wonderful staff!
It was awesome, would recommend to others!! Can wait to do the lower Lehigh

Great trail, great group, great host & great guides. worth the money for sure. Had a groupon deal.
It was a Groupon deal and so much worth it! We had a great time and the staff was friendly.
We ended up on a trip where it rained ALL DAY LONG. It was tolerable for the most part but lunch was miserable - pouring and windy. Overall we had a good time but my boyfriend, who was getting over a cold ended up sick again and I ended up sick too. On a nice day, I'm sure it's an amazing experience. Some of the rapids were very exciting - most were middle level excitement, the views were beautiful and the guides were entertaining. We've done other kinds of events with VTS in the past and will continue to work with them in the future!
This was a wonderful experience! All of the guides were amazing. I can't wait to go back and do it again!
