  • "We have traveled with many guide companies in the past including Backroads, Country Walkers, REI, Northwest Frontiers Scotland, Mountain Travel Sobek, etc and can honestly say we have never had a guide any better than Andy. He took great care to make everything run smoothly, accommodated us at every turn, and was always cheerful,patient, and friendly (sounds like the Boy Scout Handbook). Above all he is a genuinely nice guy..." - Joel
  • "I wanted to take a moment to complement you on your company and crew. I took a quick trip down the Upper Klamath last Friday, July 3rd. I checked out your website which was definitely one of the best outfitter sites I've ever seen. I haven't been out on the water as much as I'd like and jumped at the chance to do so. Needless to say I was not disappointed. Eric was my guide for the day and as I'm sure you know his service is second to none. While I can't speak for the rest of the people that day, I can say that he made the experience that much more enjoyable. His knowledge of the area and his craft was nothing short of amazing. While I was with Eric most of the day, Adam, Jon E, and Derek where also equally as awesome; I had the opportunity to pick all of their brains at one point or another during the day. I grew up on the rivers of Montana and used the opportunity with your world class crew to sharpen my knowledge on the rivers of Oregon. Don't worry, I wont be starting an outfitting business anytime soon, I know I wouldn't be able to compete with the business you've started and fostered into a truly great business that has a solid future no matter the economic outlook. Thank you again for providing such a great service. Here at Nike one of the principles we live by is "There is No Finish Line". I employ you to adopt the same mentality. You have a truly great business and will only benefit to continue building upon it. -ACS "
  • "We had a fantastic trip with three families rafting the Rogue River. For several of us, it was our first rafting trip, we had a mixture of adults & kids, vegans & carnivores, picky eaters (the kids!) and more, and Momentum not only handled it with grace but prepared excellent food, kept us safe and having fun on the river, and gave us the family trip of a lifetime. We loved it, and we can't wait to do another river with Momentum. Andy, Diego and Derek are fantastic guides; they hosted a fun Rogue wine tasting with local cheeses, the kept us safe on the rapids, setup our tents, played guitar and sang in the evenings - and by the last day we were all sad to leave. We loved being off the grid and in nature. Momentum is excellent and we plan to book a trip with them again!" - Lisa W.
  • "I wish I had more than five stars to give! This was my first rafting trip, and I couldn't be more impressed with Momentum River Expeditions. The scenery was awe-inspiring, the food was incredible, but our guides truly made this experience unforgettable. I went on a six-day, raft-supported kayak trip on the Owyhee River, and it was an amazing experience! The setting was breathtaking and the meals were outstanding, but the guides were what made this expedition stand out. Our guides, Andy and Mike, are great at navigating the river, but they are so much more than that! They are great conversationalists, versatile and expansive in their intellectual curiosity; they are careful and thorough teachers (not to mention endlessly patient); they're extraordinarily hard workers; they're calm, thoughtful, witty, and engaging; and they're careful stewards of this stretch of river that they know and love so well. In short, they're perfect ambassadors for Momentum River Expeditions." - Eric Brown
  • "I’ve traveled with Pete on 4 river trips, 4 of them covering multiple days. In every case, his professionalism shines and in each case, my experiences have been nothing less than brilliant." - Alan
