RVA Paddlesports Reviews

Rafting down the James River in Richmond, VA was the best birthday gift ever. Thanks to Kevin our RVA Paddlesports guide, we had an incredible time. “Safety”is their motto. With that in mind, Kevin, the proprietor Patrick & other expert guide Melissa gave my lady Karin and I the ultimate whitewater adventure. For all who’d enjoy the beauty, nature and historical sites of the James River, this experience is a must! You folks rock. Thank you, Palmer T
We went with a group of 15 friends on the Tacky Light Tour with the RVA Paddlesports bus. The bus was decorated for the holidays and as soon as you get in you are in the holiday spirit. A Christmas Tree inside, fun lighting and music. They even had a cooler with ice to keep your beverages cold. We went to the top decorated houses were we could exit the bus and walk around. Great trip and good value. Our hosts Andrew and Thomas were awesome. We are going again next year. Best Tacky Light Tour I have ever done (and I have done a few).
