Guest Testimonials

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!”

  • Idaho Salmon - Rafting the River of No Return

    "Hands down the best! Quality guides. Good food. Good communication. Just all around professional and competent. Makes for a safe and fun trip."
  • "Just wanted to let you know that we had an AWESOME time on our "Momentum River Expedition"!!! Eric, Ashleen, and Chad were great guides and really made our experience one that we will NEVER forget. They were wonderful with the kids. Tell them that they will all make great parents one day. The food was unbelievable, better than some "fine" restaurants that I have ate at. Camping will never be the same after this trip."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Hey Alan! Thanks for the great experience and thanks for being such a solid guide. I live down here in Sacramento and plan on trying out a trip on the American River soon. It probably won't be as nice as the Upper Klamath, so I'll just have to make do. We will see you next year if all goes as planned. Have a great Summer. "

  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "The Rogue was my third trip with Momentum. All three trips were top-rate. Guides are personable, competent, elicit alot of confidence, great cooks and fun personalities. Food is tops; equipment is excellent and the small group sizes are perfect. "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Given the fact that I originally signed up for the Illinois and had to be diverted at the last minute to the Rogue due to water conditions, it was probably a blessing in disguise. The Rogue River trip was awesome! So beautiful at every turn. Even the weather Gods were with us. I now have a new appreciation for rapids ratings (Class I, II, III,etc) and might think twice about booking an extreme adventure. LOL! The expertise of our guides made the journey safe, relaxing, exciting when it should be, and the food was out of this world! This was my first guided float trip and I'll have to say that guides Anthony and Adam are NUMBER ONE!! They worked so hard, were pleasant, entertaining, accommodating, SKILLED, friendly; they truly made my trip a memorable experience. Hey, guys! How about that 9-nine Owyhee trip next spring! Looking forward to it. "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "Three members of my family (two adults, one teenager) had a fabulous trip under the able and delightful guidance of Simon. He was brilliant at getting the 7 of us on the raft to negotiate exciting rapids as a paddling team. And we had thrills without spills thanks to his own hard work. The lunch on the riverbank was excellent and the whole day was well arranged from beginning to end. We will do this trip again"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "I wanted to thank you and your guides for a fantastic weekend! Adam and Johnny were great, and everyone had a blast. We're already talking about making this a yearly trip for the guys. Thanks very much! -Sean "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Our family has been on several multi-day rafting trips and we were looking for a new adventure. Momentum River Expedition's trip on the Rogue River was recommended by a friend. My husband and I and our sons (in their 20's) enjoyed this opportunity to "choose our own adventure" by paddling individual inflatable kayaks. It was so much fun to learn more about the river and the way the water would move us and then try our hands at paddling our own little boat down the rapids. Each of us came out of our kayak a couple of times in rapids but we were well trained by our guides to self-rescue so we weren't worried about it. Each of the 3 days after an exciting day of paddling we were greeted at camp by one of the guides who had set up our tents, prepped some snacks and had our beverages on ice so all was ready for us to relax around camp. Delicious dinners and breakfasts were served in camp and our lunch picnics on the river were amazing. The guides are very competent on the river and also love telling stories about the history of the area and the surrounding geology."
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "My running trip with Momentum was great! The guides were the perfect amount of responsible, helpful, and fun! I had never run three days in a row before and they were nothing but supportive and confident in my ability, they even helped me with shoe/clothing choices and they adjusted the mornings so we could get started earlier because the first day was too hot for me and it would be cooler if we started running earlier. The food was great too!"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Hi Pete, We just finished our trip with your crew yesterday. I had to write to personally thank you for providing one of the best vacations I have ever had :) Arden, Zack, Paige and Anthony could not have been a better fit for our group and they made the trip that much more enjoyable and memorable. They were all infectious with their passion and happiness with being on the river and were so informative with history and stories along the way. I surprised even myself by how sad I was to leave yesterday, a very atypical mood for this "glass half full" kind of gal :) I told my dad today that we need to go back! p.s. the food was outstanding!!! -Dana "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Pete- Thanks for yet another great week of rafting! I'm always impressed with your business and how hard you work to learn and grow and make it better--congratulations! You have put together a special group of people and create some wonderful experiences for the rest of us--thank you. "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "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."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "My Wife and I had an outstanding day on upper klamath trip. Our guide Andy lead us through some really exciting and beautiful whitewater. We look forward to our next river adventure!"
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "from the moment we were picked up to being returned to our car Alan and the crew made us feel really welcome, my wife and I had a fantastic day on the upper klamath river, excellent white water, wildlife and they fed us a lovely breakfast while unloading the boats, a superb lunch and a snack while they loaded the boats for our return to Ashland, thanks again for a superb trip."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hi Kelly, Well, we also had a terrific trip. Just a moment ago we were telling about it to a friend, how unique it was, the river, camping near the river, and - not to forget - the frontier road trip (is Cathy already over it?). We also liked the people in the group very much. Unfortunately we didn't exchange mail-adresses. We will recommend your business to anyone who considers rafting in the west! "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Once again, Momentum's day trip on the Rogue was the highlight for our German exchange students. Their fun guides, excellent attention to detail, reliable transportation, great snacks and affordable pricing make them the gold standard for student trips. Many thanks to Pete and his crews for making such great memories for our students three years in a row. Danke!"
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Thanks, Adam! We had a great time and bought a few pics from Jeff! Hope to go river rafting again soon! Best, Nicole "
