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

    "Pete - wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the trip and the terrific side expeditions. It was all great. Especially wanted to thank you all for the wine tasting - it was really fun and the wine and cheese were delicious - April's did a really nice job - and so did Adam as our wine guide. It was a special treat. We all got a lot of fun and pleasure out of it. "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

    "This was the best river rafting experience ever and we completely enjoyed our trip with Momentum: it was a perfect combo of excitement and comfort. Very very organised, great food, great equipment and an awesome rafting experience. We went with a big group of 9 people and upon our request they put us all in one big raft. We were also lucky enough to get Alan as our guide, he was very knowledgeable and expert in river guiding, we hardly had to work :). For some of us it was our first river rafting trip and most of us didn't know to swim, but Alan took care of everyone so well. I would strongly recommend Alan and rest of the company to friends, family and to anyone who wants to go rafting-and definitely try the upper Klamath! A super trip indeed!! So good that we plan to return for over night trip soon (I can't wait to go again). Special Thanks to Alan for making our trip memorable. "
  • Lower Klamath River Rafting

    "Took a 3 day trip on the Lower Klamath. The crew from Momentum did a great job: friendly, knowledgeable, and prepared. They had everyone prepared in the river, worked hard to keep us well fed and hydrated, and the side trip hiking up the canyon to the waterfall was a fun bonus. Would highly recommend the trip to anyone. Ken, Bell, Simon, Jane, and Courtney did a great job!"
  • Middle Owyhee

    " Quick e-mail to say I am one very happy camper!! Trip was wonderful, equipment great, fellow travelers fun, and terrific food. Anthony and Adam did a very fine job, worked their tails off to make everything was safe and enjoyable. Feel free to use me as a reference. "
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "I went on a private trip with 6 friends. We made it clear we wanted a special and unique trip, and at every stage through the adventure we were pleasantly surprised. To start, the Rogue River is a spectacular location to raft down, but Momentum offered us unexpected access to knowledge as we traveled down the river, access to insane fun as we hung around the well setup camp, and luxury as we slept. To enhance our experience, they introduced us to a survivalist, who we brought with us down the river. He did a wonderful job of giving us a much deeper understanding of the very special and complex ecosystem we were traveling down. Overall, we were very impressed and were offered way more than expected. Definitely worth every penny! Thanks again Pete, Simon, Anthony, Sam, and Trevor for the wild and truly unforgettable experience."
  • Rogue River Rafting

    "Well the Goldsteins of Israel and the Jahnke family of Pittsburgh, once again got together for our annual summer vacation. This summer it was a trip to the theme parks in Orlando, FL. At dinner after our second day at the parks, one of the kids said, “Today was really fun, but it was nothing like rafting with Pete, Mike, and Anthony. Who else had a better time on the river than in the park?” One by one, all six kids raised their hands.And all four adults. Well, it’s decided. Nothing. Absolutely nothing can beat a Momentum Rafting Trip! We’re hoping our schedules will work out next summer…."
  • California Salmon Rafting

    "Hello lovely people! Jack and I loved our adventure and have already told folks your trips are a must, esp living in Ashland. I made the mistake of looking on Youtube at what can go wrong in Class V rapids, and was quite scared on the drive down, but not once - not even one time did I feel scared in the water. We were having so much fun that I couldn't stop laughing out loud every time we went through a rapid... all thanks to your guides' emphasis on safety, their skill set and knowledge base. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of you and your experience reading the water. Also, the food was dreamy; healthy, organic energy food made us all happy :) Thank you so much - we will be back! "
  • Illinois River Rafting

    "Simon, it was an incredible trip and you guys did a fantastic job of keeping us amused, well fed and safe. "
  • Rogue River Trail Running

    "A flawless experience – the trip of a lifetime! … I could not have imagined the trip better. It was everything I hoped it would be and much more. An experience that will certainly stick with me for a long time."
  • DeRiemer Adventure Kayaking Trips

    "I want to personally thank you for a great trip… We only wish you could do more raft supported kayak trips with your staff and the DeRiemer’s. "
  • 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. "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "We had an awesome time and would definitely recommend your company to anyone! What mind-blowing fun!!!!!!!!!! I am so there next year! Julianne Bell "
  • Upper Klamath Multi-Sport Rafting Safari

    "My family had a great day trip on the Upper Klamath River. The staff, Kelly, Anthony and Kate, were outstanding. The were extremely well orgainzed, well trained and a lot of fun to spend the day with. They were instrumental to making this a fun day with a lot of action! "
  • Upper Klamath Day Trip

  • 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."
