Testimonials

"What just might be the best commercial rafting company in North America. The trips are spectacular beyond description, the guides are the best of the best, the food is incomparable, and the customers are treated like royalty."
  To all our past and present guests - Thank You!  At the end of every year we sift through the emails and the photos from all of you and it never fails to give us goose bumps, it never fails to make us happy (and a little sad), and it never fails to remind us of the power and beauty of our wild places and, even more importantly, of the unique and remarkable people we are lucky enough to spend time with on the river every season. So, with your continued support, wonderful personalities, and adventurous spirits we will continue to keep and attract the best guides anywhere. We will continue to reshape the way river travel is run and to work towards setting the standard in trip quality and environmental responsibility. And we will continue to run rivers and add adventures that are the best in their class and that are off the beaten path. To all past and present guests a huge - "THANK YOU!" For those who have not been on a rafting trip with us below are some highlights and then a rolling list of testimonials as they come in from our guests. You can also check out TripAdvisor.com and Yelp.com for even more. Enjoy!

  • "Momentum Rafting doesn't do themselves justice. We were extremely pleasantly surprised with the great food, the small groups, the knowledge shared, and the amazing river!! SO much less commercial than our last trip and so much more time on the river. And all at a really great price given all the extras."
  • "Pete, My husband and I just came back from the Upper Klamath rafting trip that we won in this year’s Willow Wind auction. Wow! What a fabulous trip! We were so impressed with the guides, the food, the camp, the food, the organization and attention to detail, the food, the river itself – oh, and the food! (There was even chocolate birthday cake with strawberries, delectable!). It was all amazing and we both feel so lucky that we got to go. Thanks for making it possible!"
  • "I know it’s rare, but Momentum is a company that delivers everything they promise. I have been rafting with many outfitters but they set the standard. Great guides, great food, great gear, great times. We had an amazing trip..."
  • "Dear Pete, You can refer ANYONE to me ANYTIME and I will be happy to "represent" how absolutely incredible the trip down the Upper K is. Besides the remote and spectacular location and fantastic whitewater, to have the good fortune to enjoy you and Derek on my Birthday trip was beyond compare! We've come to appreciate your usual attention to EVERY TINY detail but for this trip, you were over the top! Among "BEST Birthdays" EVER, you shared so generously of your time, talent while keeping us IN the boat, never even needing to call a left or right turn you are so skilled! But the safety overall and the obvious caring you take to assure each guest has that "once in a lifetime to remember" experience is what sets Momentum over the top. Our sincere and muchly felt gratitude to you and Derek and that we will be back next year for our next whitewater adventure. You are a treasure Pete, your business and associates reek of what's important to you, how lucky for us! Lisa and the "WWSS girls""
  • "Great trip and company, I'd highly recommend Momentum! From reservation to take out, it could not have gone better. Our guide, Erik, was extremely knowledgeable and competent on the river. I took my 13 year old daughter and she loved the trip. In addition, Momentum does a great job with the food as well! "
  • "Thank you for the wonderful experience. We had a great time rafting with you and we really enjoyed the whole trip. You were a great guide and we would like to go rafting with you again!"
  • "Glenn, We had a glorious time and you were a fun, engaging guide! Happy parenting and guiding! Mike "
  • "You guys were great! On certain days when I am home looking out the window while tending to my screaming baby, I will think of you folks riding high on the waves and sleeping under bright stars."
  • "Arden, Thank You! We all had a great time and really appreciate your expertise and good humor. Would couldn't have asked for a better guide. Even T-Grip can't deny that ;-) ! Regards, Joe "
  • "Allan, we had a great time also. Lets stay in touch. Lou, Maggie and Katie :-) "
  • "Pete: I wanted to thank your company and most importantly your guide, Anthony for a rollicking good time last weekend. My older son, Marty Young scheduled floats on both the upper and lower Klamath rivers, 6/21 and 22. It was in celebration of my 60th birthday. I am doing many different things to celebrate this event and the trips on the river were certainly a highlight. I am still high from the adventure. Kudos to Anthony for his navigational abilities and more importantly his leadership. He has a steady, assured manner that is both supportive, humorous and knowledgeable. I especially like the way that he handled my initial fear when scouting one of the rapids on the lower Klamath. He got me through with confidence and was certainly right in telling me that I “would regret it” if I didn’t take the waves. Following closely behind like a duckling, made it easy. Thanks again. I hope to “float’ with your company in years to come. "
  • "Hi Alan We had so much fun on our trip with you, Mike, and Hailey!!! You did a great job as our guide (so calming in the face of white water danger). I also loved hearing about the history about the area surrounding the Klamath River. I look forward to taking our friends and relatives down the river in the future. Take care, Deb "
  • "Anthony, Thanks for your note and the amazing experience. Our day on the river was the highlight of our two week vacation! We'll most definitely recommend your company to friends and family and will likely schedule another trip for ourselves in the future. "
  • "I should be thanking you. I had a great time on the river, it's always good to get out on a river and soak up a few rays. I should also be thanking you for putting up with all of my generic and I'm sure rather annoying questions, I learned a great deal. I can truly say that you (Jon E, Big D, and Adam) and MRE are best in class when it comes experience, personality, and true passion for what you all do. MRE is first on my list...without fail. Thanks again for an awesome time. Cheers, ACS "
  • "We had so much fun and are still talking about it! You are a lively river guide and we loved that we felt safe yet challenged! If we dont make it to one of those lovely rivers next Spring, rest assured, we will be planning our 50th Birthdays there! (closer than you think)."
  • "We loved going out on the water with you guys and would certainly recommend you to our friends and colleagues. We loved the food and all your cheerfulness. It was an amazing trip for us. I have that trip to Chile filed away for the future."
  • "Thank you Anthony, we had a great time and an excellent weekend. you guys have a great group, I am sure we will meet again. -Aaron"
  • "Thanks for the great trip! I will definitely recommend your guide services and Momentum River Expeditions. We’ll be up next summer with the girlfriends and likely more people and will look you up then. Good luck with the new family and house hunting!"
  • "Thanks Mara, We had a blast. I spent any free time I had at work today looking over the spring trips, already planning for those. We'll be sure to request you or Anthony when (not if) we go again. -Jacob and Molly "
  • "Hi Erik, Thanks again for outstanding rafting guiding. The next day, Marc and I took your suggestion and hiked to the Raine Falls from near Morrison's Lodge. It was outstanding!! You people have chosen a great place to settle down! Along that trail somewhere I mentioned to Marc that it would be fun to have a beer(s) with you, as you seemed so full of information, whether it be rafting or history. Thanks again, Chip "
