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!”

  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "I just got home this evening. The rafting was the was the most outstanding part of our trip, and something Logan will no doubt keep with him forever. It couldn't have turned out better:). I will certainly keep Momentum in mind for future adventures. Your time and enthusiasm for the river was greatly appreciated and according to Logan, you "rock." Until next time... "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "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."
  • "Hey, Thanks to all for a great trip for our family. We took a 4 day, 3 night trip on the Lower Klamath. We all loved the trip and the kids are still raving about it. Rachael, Adam and Anthony were great guides and their skill, patience and expertise made us feel 100% confident in every aspect of the trip. The food was great.! "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Hi Jane, Many sincere thanks to you from all of us. We had such an amazing time. I so greatly appreciate the care and integrity with which you, Simon and Taylor shepherded us down the river. We always felt safe and inspired. As a parent it was especially rewarding to see the confidence build in our kids. Were it not for such professional attention they would not have been nearly as bold as they were. Again, thank you so much. "
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "Thank you guys very much for everything. Thank you for your attention to detail and for being so accommodating. This is my first guided trip and you guys set the bar very very high! I loved being able to run with such great runners that I look up to. Thank you all for letting me pick your brains during our runs, I'll definitely use your advice. I wish I was still on the trail!"
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Can't tell you guys again, what a great time we had! We will definitely sign up for another river trip again....maybe another river. Every one of you, Anthony, Arden and Orea, were great in very individual ways! Thank you to all of you for your enthusiasm and gentle nature with our girls :) Anthony, for enduring a boat full of girls, sharing your vast knowledge about the experience, enduring lots of questions, and for supporting and encouraging both Emma and Audrey in their first ik experience. Arden for your enthusiasm for the kids, your obvious love of what you do, and tending to Audrey in her time of need....and Orea, for your gentle willingness to have Audrey help you in the kitchen....you made her days!!! Thank you all for your time and patience, and enthusiasm. We've told many people about our trip, and hopefully some of them will come your way....I know they wont be disappointed! I would love some of your recipes....the food was so awesome...the thai food night....would love that, all of it! the bananas foster.....yum! And the carnitas night....am i missing anything? Thanks again all! Will definitely go down as a trip to remember for all of us! -Gretchen"
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Hi Anthony, thanks for your e-mail. We are back in Germany since yesterday. Yes! The rest of our holiday was great. But the rafting-trip with the momentum-team and you as our guide was the best we did. I told you that I always felt safe during the trip..and that is the absolute truth. So I have to say: Thank you very much!!! Give my regards to your team All of you take care Charlie "
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "From the pre-trip checklist, to arrival at camp, every spot along the river, and until I left camp, Momentum made my trip a memorable experience. This was my third river-rafting trip and nothing compares to my experience on the Salmon. First rate guides made the experience memorable by being very personable, sharing their rafting and local knowledge, as well as ensuring a safe trip through some insane rapids. I didn't realize how intense the rapids were until I saw the pictures of me under many 3 foot walls of water."
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Had a wonderful time on our 2 days on the Upper Klamath! Great white water, food and camping experience! Beautiful views and wild life. Very fun and exciting whiter water. Tyler our guide was knowledgable, able to keep us safe in the adventure. A very important thing to a mom and dad with 2 teenage sons. A trip we will always remember with a smile!"
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "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."
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "We had an AMAZING time with you, and are definitely planning on coming back next year; hopefully with a couple of friends and hopefully for a 2-3 day trip :) Alan, you did such a great job -- even Kris was able to get through her anxiety and to feel safe enough to have a blast :) We'll be asking for you to guide us again! Enjoy the rest of the summer :) "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Hi Mara!! We had a wonderful time rafting with you! The excitement of the whitewater, the team effort, and the amazing beauty along the river was unparalleled. And we appreciated your friendly personality as well. Oh by the way, I remember telling you about an environmental activist by the name Derrick Jensen. I thought you might find his work interesting. You should look him up! The last book I read was "Strangely Like War: The Global Assault on Forests". Really good book. Anyway, we hope to go rafting again soon; the Illinois River trip sounds great! Take care :) ~ Linda L.P. ("Shakuntala") "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "Pete, We had the 2 day trip this past Friday and Sat. Just wanted to thank you so much for the service that we received. I know everyone had a great time and your guides were outstanding. I personally had Kelly as my guide and he was great! He hands down was the best guide that I had ever had and I had been whitewater rafting many times! Again, the service that you provided was outstanding and I appreciate everything that your company did and stands for. Thanks again for everything and we will talk to you soon. God Bless. Kevin (Also feel free to use this email on your website to help promote your company) "
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "we had a great time! We will for sure be going again and will ask for you! Take care"
  • Rogue River 1/2 Day

    "Mike, You were the best. Our next trip will be with you - the sooner the better. Cheers! Sheri"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "This was my 5th white water experience and by far the best. The rapids were big but the guide (Anthony) did a great job making us feel comfortable with them. I would love to book another trip with them!"
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "We had a great time. Lot's of good memories and stories to tell. Can't say enough about your extra effort to make it a real adventure. Thank you for a job well done. My kids and I have already been discussing another rafting trip with you. -Hank"
  • Lower Owyhee

    "We are home at last from our trip through Eastern Oregon, and have had a lot of time to reflect on the Owyhee trip. We want you to know that the most outstanding aspect of you three was your professionalism as river guides and as group leaders. From the cold, snowy first day, to the take-out along-side the "gang from Caldwell", you always exhibited the demeanor of people who understand how to deal with difficulty with a successful outcome for all. You were able to blend knowing just- what- needed -to -happen with a smile and some light-hearted banter. We had complete trust in your skills and abilities which built during the experiences of the trip (including pulling me and my hat from the river). On the lighter side, you were awfully nice, interesting, and funny (especially Mike) and tolerated our middle aged/old age conversations and questions without a hint of boredom. Thanks for humoring us. You made us feel like we were a "special group" and in some way unique (which we really weren't). For Jim and me, you pointed out super camp-sites and engaged us in interesting conversations. Each of you gave us a picture of your background that we found very interesting (since our kids are in their late 20's). You also displayed a depth of knowledge about the geographic area, geology, knew the flora, fauna, history, and environmental concerns, which in our case, was a big part of the trip. It was nice to share the experience with people who were even more impressed by it that we were. We learned a lot from each of you. You were more than safe guides, you were also resources for a lot of information. AND you are great cooks. The meals were better than home. The care the company takes with the environment, from the carbon off-sets, to the local/organic food, and then compost/waste handling topped off our experience. We are pretty conscientious at home, and so were impressed as well as pleased that you can run an operation with glamour AND keep the "footprint" somewhat smaller. We appreciated the good equipment too...especially those thick pads. So, did we like the trip? YES. We have some friends that we think might also enjoy it, and can't wait to show them our pictures. Maybe we'll try Clear Creek, or the Klamath next year. Good luck with your summer, and fall plans, and with the whole enterprise. -Caroline "
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "This is a review of the running trip along the rogue river trail. The camp support was wonderful, tents and pads were all set up and comfy. The food was fantastic.A big thanks to Orea, Anthony, Jace, Ghelfi, and Jenn. We had plenty of support while running, and we had so much fun with our fellow runners and guides once we got to camp. I would recommend Momentum Running Trips to anyone interested in some fun and beautiful scenery (with great guides). An extra excellent for the food!"
