"Super friendly, informative, and competent staff running the river operations - they were well organized and easy to work with. My wife and I did the tube float from Parmalee to Whirlpool, and it was a great experience - it was the right length of time to be out on the water (2.5 hrs.) and this stretch of the river was scenic, quick moving, and shallow enough in spots to disembark the tubes and wade around. I considered a number of other liveries from Grayling to Mio, but I’m glad we chose Rainbow." — Travis W, Google Review, 5 Stars
"Fantastic customer service!! Not only did were they able accommodated a group of 25+ employees with a two hour notice (our original trip on a different river had been cancelled less than a half hour before we were set to leave due to weather conditions), they were so welcoming and helpful. Our group can't wait to return next year, this will now be where our annual tubing trip will be held." — Kara K, Google Review, 5 Star

"Wonderful time enjoying our cabin in nature-filled Mio. Robin and Henry were very kind and accommodating. Great prices on the firewood. Fire pit and grill were included with the cabin, and all the basic kitchen necessities. Very fun kayak trip from Parmalee to Mio! Also there’s Amish/Mennonite farms nearby with fresh produce and delicious restaurants in the downtown. Can’t wait to come back!" — Dragana S, Google Review, 5 Star
