I actually backed - out.. last minute, but if you like this kind of thing.. people were nice and a beautiful day out. I didn't feel safe and I was afraid I would drift off and be stuck.. but I am sure its fun. I did let me kids go

Although the Groupon says to call to make reservations, they do not take reservations over the phone. I have received conflicting information from employees, and one was very rude to me. I'm not at all impressed with their customer service.

My husband took 2 of our kids and 3 of their friends and they had a lot of fun. Said it's a great beginner tubing trip. They all liked that you could walk back up and do it over again.

It was not clear what was included in this groupon. It did NOT include the shuttle, just the tube and a life jacket. You had to walk up River in order to tube down. Very short trip could be repeated but not varied.

If you are looking to have short rides, esp. if you have younger kids that you don't know how they'll handle a couple hours floating in a raft, then this one IS for you. If you're looking for a continuous couple hours floating down the river, DON'T buy this. This groupon is NOT for the longer route and does NOT include the shuttle. For what you get for the price, it actually is GOOD groupon & experience if you are clear on what you are getting. This groupon allows you to get rafts and life jackets, walk around the corner from the trailer to where you put in, and drift about 20 minutes in the river to the place where they advise you get out. Then do it again. Small but fun rapids.

This was my first exposure to tubing in Columbia. I didn't eve know it was an option. We had to wait 30 minutes for tubes because they ran out, but overall the experience was wonderful and I would definitely go again.

Although the products are good and most of the staff are quite helpful, our blonde guide/safety instructress was not very professional which bothered a number of our group who felt she was talking down to us.

I thought there would be a guide, but there wasn't. Even so, we had a lot of fun!

From Our Editors

Palmetto Outdoor Center promotes the preservation of natural rivers and forests. Because awareness is the best way to maintain the environment and cultural heritage, Palmetto spreads knowledge of local gems with river trips and walking tours. These organized tours and vessels for rent allow amateur explorers to discover South Carolina's uncluttered riverbanks while learning about how they can be protected. Civil War walking tours illuminate the history of the region, and canoe and kayak rentals plunge into the tree-lined waterways of the Congaree, which flows through protected national parkland with the continent's largest old-growth floodplain forest.
