This is YOUR Trip
When you choose a river trip, you choose to put yourself and your family into someone else's hands. You expect good customer service and professionalism and you don't want to worry about details and logistics. You want an experience that allows you the flexibility of choosing your level of participation and above all, you want to feel safe. An Ouzel rafting trip is organized to create just such an atmosphere. Our guides are genuinely interested in your expectations and ambitions and will make every effort to provide you and your family with the experience you are seeking. This is YOUR trip.
Price and Value
As the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for." If you shop around you will find that Ouzel Outfitters is far from the least expensive, but not the most expensive outfitter you have to choose from. We make every effort to keep our prices as reasonable as possible but at the same time we do not "cut corners" with regard to expenditures on equipment, training and other factors that directly affect the safety or quality of your trip. We are committed to maintaining a high level of training for our guides and an efficient and comprehensive infrastructure that allows us to consistently deliver a high-quality trip. As a result, a rafting trip with Ouzel is NOT like a box of chocolates. You can depend on us to consistently deliver the highest quality experience regardless of the river trip you choose or how many times you join us for a rafting adventure.
Experience and Reputation
Over the course of 30 years we have built a solid reputation for quality and professionalism. Our guide staff
are an extremely loyal and tight-knit group of professionals. With very little turnover each year we maintain high levels of experience, tradition and teamwork. Our guides know our rivers, our trips and most importantly, our guests - a large portion of whom return for trips year-after-year. Many outfitters look to Ouzel as the outfitter that sets the standard for service and quality on the river.
Few experiences rival a whitewater rafting trip for creating quality time together for families. A day spent on the river (or better yet, several days) away from phones, electronics and hectic schedules create time for busy families to reconnect in a way not possible on other vacations. Very often, family members discover new things about each other. Most importantly the memories will be shared by all.
