  • "It was a lot of fun and you were excellent guides. We all felt safe and relaxed and well cared for. Peter and I agreed it was the best organised river trip we have ever been on and Peter especially has been on a lot. Please do pass our thanks on to Pete and Johnny too. Yes, we would love to come down the Rogue with you next summer. We will be in touch closer to the time!"
  • "I was not sure how I would feel about an all day river rafting Class 4 rapids trip having very little experience rafting and being generally risk adverse! However, this was a wonderful experience for me, as well as my husband and 13 and 17 yo children. Our guide, Anthony, inspired absolute confidence and skillfully negotiated the rapids. The trip was beautiful and fun and jumping into the river and swimming at the end of the trip was also a highlight."
  • "My husband and I went white-water rafting for the first time. We did the full day rafting on the Klamath. Momenturm made it a great experience! From the time they picked us up at our hotel in Ashland until we returned we were in capable hands. We were a little nervous at first, but with Jane's guidance and great skill we were soon comfortable and totally enjoying the river. Food was great also."
  • "This is 4th or 5th time with your company and we won’t raft with anyone else! Anthony was great, as are all your guides – I appreciate the level of skill and experience that they all have, so thanks for running a great company and having a great crew!"
  • "Thanks to YOU, Jonny, and the momentum crew, we had a great time! Anthony and Adam did and how much we enjoyed our trip. Thanks again for an absolutely fantastic rafting trip. We will have fond memories of our day rafting for a long time. -Jaylin "
  • "Simon, Now that we are back in the UK, I wanted to say thank you for making our one-day trip down the Upper Klamath a highlight of our stay in the USA. My wife, our 14-year-old son and I, all enjoyed it immensely. Firstly, it's a great river with dramatic sections, stunning scenery and lots of wildlife; there is also a good flow even in August: I still find it hard to believe that in the calm sections between the rapids the river visibly slopes downhill. Secondly your organisation is very professional, but also personal, with pre-trip confirmatory e-mails and a pickup from our campsite that was bang on time. But most importantly, more than an experienced guide and an excellent raft-Captain, your knowledge of the area and enthusiasm for the experience was infectious and added hugely to the overall enjoyment. This was, as billed, an exhilarating wilderness experience not a theme park ride which we will all remember for many years to come. Thanks again to you and all at Momentum. And thanks for finding such good companion rafters too. Best wishes, John"
  • "It was just the right amount of time for a river rafting trip to last. The lunch was delicious, with lots of fresh fruit! The guides were fun and made us feel safe and like he actually needed us to paddle. It was such a fun trip! I would definitely go again."
  • "We're happy to report that we have never enjoyed a river trip as much as we did this one. The guides were personable, knowledgable and really laid out a wonderful lunch at the side of the river complete with a local character named Rodrigo the squirrel. We felt safe even though there were many challenging rapids and we'd do this again in a heart beat. Thanks!!!"
  • "Fabulous river adventure in class 3 and 4 rapids. Great food, great guides, we loved Tyler and felt safe with him. It was a great experience of a lifetime. Worth every penny, and then some. What a rush! Go Momentum!"
  • "Thank you for providing the employees of Jacksonville Inn with a wonderful and exciting day on the Upper Klamath River. The skills of the guides made each and every one of us comfortable on the river, and the food was definitely beyond our expectations. All in all, Momentum Expeditions is definitely a first-class operation and we will not hesitate to recommend your service to our guests. -Higgins "
  • "Rachael, I had an incredible time!! I am hooked...I just signed up for Yelp and I will be giving your company the HIGHEST rating. Your entire team is FANTASTIC!!! Hope to see you soon!! Take care MG Michael Gordon "
  • "Rafting the Upper Klamath was a great experience and thank you Mike for guiding us through it safely. I would like to call Momentum River Expeditions again when I return to Oregon in the near future. -Ed"
  • "Thank you so much. Hopefully we'll be able to get back next year with the whole family. If you're still in our little corner of the world, we'll be requesting you as our guide for sure! A huge thanks to you and Derek for making our trip such a wonderful experience. The river and surrounding country are breathtaking, but our time there would not have been nearly as remarkable were it not for you. Thank you again for your expertise, graciousness, and joyful personality. - Jef "
  • "Just want to let y'all know that our guides on thurs, Eric and Allen were fabulous. They were professional, informative, fun loving and safe. We had a wonderful time and would recommend your company to anyone that asks. -Claudia and Greg"
  • "Four of us decided to go with Momentum River Expeditions because of these outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed! Anthony and Tyler, our river guides were professional, courteous, very experienced and super fun! They'll be telling us fun stories and history of the river when the water is calm, and safely guided us even with our eyes closed (literally!) through the ups and downs of whitewater splashes. Breakfast and lunch was prep with fresh and quality ingredients... Lox, bagels, marionberry creamcheese (yum!), French press coffee and juice for breakfast. Fresh multigrain loafs, cold cuts, avocados, assorted veggies, carved fruits, and a big bowl of peppercinis! At the end of our whole day fun, we also have fresh, cold, juicy watermelons to end our trip (while other outfitters had none!). Sign up with them, you won't be disappointed!"
  • "We’ve owned a home on the Klamath River for 12 years now. It’s beautiful to watch “Old Man River” go by. But we see people boating the Klamath in rafts and kayaks, and we’ve always wanted to do that ourselves. So when our lawyer/mediator brother suggested he’d pay for a rafting trip on the Upper Klamath, to celebrate his wife's birthday, we jumped on board. There were just four of us on this raft, captained by our unbelievably strong thirty year old guide, Tyler. The long, intense rapids were ominous class threes and fours. Tyler was propped upright, leaning against a 2 by 6 in the back of the raft, wielding two massive oars, and we four terrified neophytes were hunkered down with paddles, two on each side of the boat, in front of him. When Tyler said “paddle,” it meant paddle like hell, because we were approaching or right in the middle of the most violently churning water we’ve ever seen. A lot of our paddling yielded nothing but air, since the boat was forced way up out of the water half the time during a class 4 rapid. But Tyler kept us safe and moving through the water. He had the most muscular upper body we’ve ever seen on a compact frame, and he needed every bit of his strength to push us through those rapids. If we had been able to relax and look around, the scenery would have been breathtaking. But we couldn’t really enjoy it at the time, as we were always tensing for the next rapid or trying to rest leg and foot muscles that we had brutally wedged into the boat to keep from being thrown from the raft into the teaming surf. Three of us actually did fall back into the raft at least once."
  • "Hi Robyn, Just wanted to let you know we had an absolutely FANTASTIC time yesterday, Sunday, July 12th on our raft trip on the upper Klamath river with Anthony, Johnny and Adam. The entire team was top notch. Johnny happened to be our river guide and he was fantastic! Our entire experience with your company from booking the trip with you to the delicious food to the equipment could not have been better. (Even the weather cooperated!) We will definitely recommend your company and the trip to others. Please forward this note to the owner, Pete, as we want him to know what great people he has working for him. Thanks so much, Jaylin Hefty "
  • "Hi Erik! The rafting on the Klamath was THE HIGHLIGHT of this entire trip for me. Thanks for a wonderful experience. I learned a lot! -Chris"
  • "Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip last Saturday. Both of us felt that Alan was a SUPERB guide - he was so friendly and competent that we felt totally relaxed on the trip, and the lunch he prepared for us on the river was spectacular. We will definitely recommend your company to our friends. "
  • "Thanks again Anthony, you are the best! It was a perfect day! Thank-you, Denise"
