My Best Memory of Summer 2016, Thanks to REO ★★★★★
"Rafting down the Thompson as part of a team of fellow first-timers was an absolute thrill. The feeling of rushing towards the rapids as your guide yells "Forward!!" was absolutely exhilarating. All in all we had an amazing experience with REO and would gladly recommend to others and book there again."
