  • "Pete, My husband and I just came back from the Upper Klamath rafting trip that we won in this year’s Willow Wind auction. Wow! What a fabulous trip! We were so impressed with the guides, the food, the camp, the food, the organization and attention to detail, the food, the river itself – oh, and the food! (There was even chocolate birthday cake with strawberries, delectable!). It was all amazing and we both feel so lucky that we got to go. Thanks for making it possible!"
  • "I know it’s rare, but Momentum is a company that delivers everything they promise. I have been rafting with many outfitters but they set the standard. Great guides, great food, great gear, great times. We had an amazing trip..."
  • "Dear Pete, You can refer ANYONE to me ANYTIME and I will be happy to "represent" how absolutely incredible the trip down the Upper K is. Besides the remote and spectacular location and fantastic whitewater, to have the good fortune to enjoy you and Derek on my Birthday trip was beyond compare! We've come to appreciate your usual attention to EVERY TINY detail but for this trip, you were over the top! Among "BEST Birthdays" EVER, you shared so generously of your time, talent while keeping us IN the boat, never even needing to call a left or right turn you are so skilled! But the safety overall and the obvious caring you take to assure each guest has that "once in a lifetime to remember" experience is what sets Momentum over the top. Our sincere and muchly felt gratitude to you and Derek and that we will be back next year for our next whitewater adventure. You are a treasure Pete, your business and associates reek of what's important to you, how lucky for us! Lisa and the "WWSS girls""
  • "Momentum Rafting doesn't do themselves justice. We were extremely pleasantly surprised with the great food, the small groups, the knowledge shared, and the amazing river!! SO much less commercial than our last trip and so much more time on the river. And all at a really great price given all the extras."
  • "Thank You Eric, We have been talking about what a great guide you are. It was really nice to be out with a mature guide who doesn't do crazy things. Instead you gave good clear direction and lots of information about the river and its histroy. Thank you. We have been telling all our friends and neighbors about our white water experience and have told them when they go with Momentum they should ask for you. Sincerely, Susan "
  • "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."
  • "Hi Robyn, We had a great time. Thanks for your leadership. Jack Feinberg "
  • "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 "
  • "Thank you all for a spectacular time! It was my first time rafting and I had an absolute blast!! Thanks Glenn for making the "short bus" the best ride ever!! Thanks to Adam, Anthony, Derrick and Julie too! We look forward to rafting with you again next year!!"
  • "Three of us took the Upper Klamath trip in mid-August and had a blast! Momentum staff were very accommodating in terms of fun, fuel (super breakfast and lunch) and fables (between rapids there was time to share stories)! Definitely will do this again. Thanks. "
  • "Hello Erik, Your company is OUTSTANDING and I can only see myself going with your company in the future. THANKS SO MUCH ERIK as your knowledge and experience as a rafter expert is at the top! I pray many more wonderful safe and exciting experiences for you and your clients!! Alice Jones "
  • "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 "
  • "Jason, We had the best time! Thanks for being a great guide. Hopefully we will see you again on the river! -Allie "
  • "We did the 1 day upper Klamath white water tour with Craig and Nick. Craig was our guide and he did a great job! They were right on time to meet us and our day went off without a hitch. We didn't have to do a thing (ok, occasionally we had to paddle) but everything else is taken care of by the guys. Our 2 teenagers had a great time and we were all plenty soaked by the time we were done. The shore lunch was fantastic, lots of fresh veggies, great makings for sandwiches. Lots of winding hills on the way up and back but we got to see a lot of scenery away from Ashland which was fantastic. Definitely recommend this trip to anyone, go and enjoy with confidence!!"
  • "Rachael Thanks so much for the note back. We all had a wonderful time and appreciate that Momentum Tours was willing to take only the three of us down a great river. Also you were great and a real asset to your company! Absolutely will be back with Momentum Tours and the Cal Salmon in the spring. Best Regards... Mark "
  • "Thank you for taking such good care of our group on Wednesday. I hear the trip was a great success and a good time was had by all even with the less than optimal weather. Your care, skill and customer service did not go unnoticed and was greatly appreciated, I only wish I could have been there to enjoy it! Thank you again and have a great season."
  • "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) "
  • "Our family rafted with Alex and Anthony. It was a great day for our family of two parents and five kids, ages 15-23. Alex and Anthony were great in guiding us and giving us interesting information. We enjoyed our day and would recommend the trip to any family."
  • "Thank you Mara, we also had a great time and are looking at Momentum's brochure to see if we can do one of the Spring trips next year!!! You will love Hamlet. Bring a Kleenex. John "
  • "Dear Pete, First of all I have to say that the trip we went on was the absolute best guided trip I have ever been on! Every aspect of the situation was perfect and we (and i have talked to every person on the trip) could not agree more about how amazing it truly was. Aside from the stunning beauty of the State of Jefferson (which Erik and Adam so informatively explained was where we were), the organization of the trip and the guides were absolutely perfect. We could not have asked for better people than Erik, Adam and Neil. They were friendly, knowledgeable, AMAZING chefs, nice guys, and truly handled themselves professionally. Even though the rivers weren't exactly co-operating with us, we had the most amazing time. Having done some minor guiding (and I mean Class II-III simple canoe trips on the Potomac river, so not close to the stuff you guys do) I can tell you that the way Erik handled the decision to abort the Scott was completely professional. I can say with confidence that if your guides were jerks or not as friendly and cool as the ones we had, that decision could have easily made the group upset. But, we trusted them and I am sure it was the right choice. Even though we all know we could've done it no problems!!! Just kidding... :) I am not an elegant writer, but if I were, I would put into more beautiful words how much I enjoyed this trip. Personally it was exactly what I needed during a difficult time in my life. I came to Oregon with many heavy thoughts on my mind and left with a feeling of peace and understanding. I know that the mountains, rivers and nature's beauty have always worked wonders for me, but I do not think it would've gone so well if I hadn't had such a worry free experience thanks to you all. I truly hope that I will be able to join another trip with you guys on some of the amazing rivers you frequent. And, I will surely be requesting Erik, Adam and Neil again if it comes together another time. Also, I want to be sure that you received all the money you needed to. I checked my bank statement and I think I only saw one charge on there for me? Please let me know if I owe some more. I think this helps prove how satisfied I am with that trip. How many people would write asking to pay more money after the fact??? Anyways, again, the food, the experience, the people, the place... everything was great. I truly appreciate you all being flexible with the situation, from rivers floods to people backing out. Please extend my deepest gratitude to the guides again for such and awesome trip. I will forever speak highly of your company and promote it the best I can! Take care and I hope to see you again sometime, Eric Suissa "
