Testimonials

"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."

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!" For those who have not been on a rafting trip with us below are some highlights and then a rolling list of testimonials as they come in from our guests. You can also check out TripAdvisor.com and Yelp.com for even more. Enjoy!

  • "It was a lot of fun and you were excellent guides. We all felt safe and relaxed and well cared for. Peter and I agreed it was the best organised river trip we have ever been on and Peter especially has been on a lot. Please do pass our thanks on to Pete and Johnny too. Yes, we would love to come down the Rogue with you next summer. We will be in touch closer to the time!"
  • "I was not sure how I would feel about an all day river rafting Class 4 rapids trip having very little experience rafting and being generally risk adverse! However, this was a wonderful experience for me, as well as my husband and 13 and 17 yo children. Our guide, Anthony, inspired absolute confidence and skillfully negotiated the rapids. The trip was beautiful and fun and jumping into the river and swimming at the end of the trip was also a highlight."
  • "As an old river guide, I am very critical of any trip that I take. This was one of the BEST that I have taken. Not only was the river exciting, but our guide, Andy, was one of the best that I have encountered in my rafting experiences. The food was well presented, fresh and extremely tasty. I give this trip a ‘double thumbs up’. I will do this trip again. I urge you to take it for an awesome experience."
  • "Rachael, I had an incredible time!! I am hooked...I just signed up for Yelp and I will be giving your company the HIGHEST rating. Your entire team is FANTASTIC!!! Hope to see you soon!! Take care MG Michael Gordon "
  • "Rafting the Upper Klamath was a great experience and thank you Mike for guiding us through it safely. I would like to call Momentum River Expeditions again when I return to Oregon in the near future. -Ed"
  • "Thank you so much. Hopefully we'll be able to get back next year with the whole family. If you're still in our little corner of the world, we'll be requesting you as our guide for sure! A huge thanks to you and Derek for making our trip such a wonderful experience. The river and surrounding country are breathtaking, but our time there would not have been nearly as remarkable were it not for you. Thank you again for your expertise, graciousness, and joyful personality. - Jef "
  • "Just want to let y'all know that our guides on thurs, Eric and Allen were fabulous. They were professional, informative, fun loving and safe. We had a wonderful time and would recommend your company to anyone that asks. -Claudia and Greg"
  • "Four of us decided to go with Momentum River Expeditions because of these outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed! Anthony and Tyler, our river guides were professional, courteous, very experienced and super fun! They'll be telling us fun stories and history of the river when the water is calm, and safely guided us even with our eyes closed (literally!) through the ups and downs of whitewater splashes. Breakfast and lunch was prep with fresh and quality ingredients... Lox, bagels, marionberry creamcheese (yum!), French press coffee and juice for breakfast. Fresh multigrain loafs, cold cuts, avocados, assorted veggies, carved fruits, and a big bowl of peppercinis! At the end of our whole day fun, we also have fresh, cold, juicy watermelons to end our trip (while other outfitters had none!). Sign up with them, you won't be disappointed!"
  • "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."
  • "Hi Robyn, Just wanted to let you know we had an absolutely FANTASTIC time yesterday, Sunday, July 12th on our raft trip on the upper Klamath river with Anthony, Johnny and Adam. The entire team was top notch. Johnny happened to be our river guide and he was fantastic! Our entire experience with your company from booking the trip with you to the delicious food to the equipment could not have been better. (Even the weather cooperated!) We will definitely recommend your company and the trip to others. Please forward this note to the owner, Pete, as we want him to know what great people he has working for him. Thanks so much, Jaylin Hefty "
  • "Hi Erik! The rafting on the Klamath was THE HIGHLIGHT of this entire trip for me. Thanks for a wonderful experience. I learned a lot! -Chris"
  • "Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip last Saturday. Both of us felt that Alan was a SUPERB guide - he was so friendly and competent that we felt totally relaxed on the trip, and the lunch he prepared for us on the river was spectacular. We will definitely recommend your company to our friends. "
  • "Thanks again Anthony, you are the best! It was a perfect day! Thank-you, Denise"
  • "We booked a last minute day trip while vacationing in Oregon. Momentum was the only outfitter I was able to find that had a trip going out the following day (our only available day). We had a very knowledgeable guide (Jane) and driver (Anthony) who made the entire trip relaxing, safe, fun...a blast. My husband has had some bad experiences on the water, and I was concerned that he might be uncomfortable, but our guide's confident and laid back leadership style had him (and me) at ease."
  • "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!"
  • "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 "
  • "Thank YOU, Erik! You helped to make our day trip one that we'll all remember for the rest of our lives! We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the area and the power of the water---and had the most magnificent time running the rapids!!! Thank you again for all your hard work!!! We will gladly recommend you and the company for anyone who asks!!! Mahalo and Aloha!!!!"
  • "A big thank you to the staff at Momentum for such a fun trip down the Upper Klamath yesterday! I can't think of a better way to have spent my birthday. :) Chad was our raft guide, and both Mike and I were impressed with his knowledge of the area. Discussing Captain Jack and the Modoc War was refreshing, although I was unclear on some details, forgetting several points. Chad knew the basics, but upon arriving home I couldn't help but do some googling and refresh my history. Please pass the following on to him as well so we can ALL get our facts right for future reference. Thanks so much! :) Once again, thanks Chad for such a fun afternoon! :)"
  • "Jeff, thanks again for your fine boatmanship! Excellent job! We had a great time on the trip and will definitely recommend Momentum, the trip and you as captain to others. We have completed our slow re entry back to Alaska and the reality of working 8-5 in an office. Been out on few trail runs, Harley Rides and Mt bike rides but we have not surpassed the Klamath rafting adventure this year. -Todd"
  • "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!"
