  • "Sam, Sol, and Alan, I want to thank you all for making our trip down the Rogue a wonderful lifetime memory. To be able to share such a quality experience with our daughters was really priceless. Your professional, friendly, relaxed and attention to all of our needs made it a super easy vacation for us. Plus the food was amazing. Great job!"
  • "Hi Erik, Your leadership of the trip helped make it a great experience for everyone. Everyone came back without any injuries and still had a terrific experience. Thanks for being a great leader and teacher. -Jeff"
  • "We had an awesome time and were impressed with ever thing about our trip down the Rogue. The guides were all extremely knowledgeable, safety-minded, interesting and caring. I cannot think of one reason to look for a different outfitter if we do another trip! "
  • "It was so much fun and we had an AMAZING time! You, John and Tyler were all excellent guides, and took such amazing care of us. I hope you all have a great summer, and we will continue to tell all of our friends and family what a great experience we had."
  • "Pete, Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for hooking us up with our amazing guides this past weekend. Alan, Robyn and Anthony were just awesome. Made our first time on the rapids the most enjoyable experience ever. Their professionalism, courtesy and dedication to their work/clients were much appreciated. The meals were delectable, the lodges (especially Paradise) were beyond expectations, happy hour beverages/h'ors douevres were greatly appreciated and of course the camaraderie and care provided by our awesome guides made the whole experience. They even surprised my daughter for her 13th birthday on the river with cupcakes/candles without my even asking (think they overheard some of the gals talking about her bday and took it upon themselves). You've got a great crew and we'll of course tell all our acquaintances in San Diego about Momentum River Expeditions! Some of the guys are already plotting a dads/sons trip!"
  • "We've been savoring our time ever since. You were a great team; a wonderful lead---calm while watchful---and our Girls grew by paddles, rows and splashes. Keep caring, cooking and laughing the wonderful way you all do. - Rick"
  • "Tyler, Anthony, Sam,and Alaina were excellent river guides as well as informative historians. They exceeded our expectations with wit, humor, and excellent cooking and organizational skills. I would travel any river with any or all of them any time. Their concern for our well being was their highest priority and I thank them for their expertise."
  • "Hi Erik, Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip! We were so impressed with all of the guides and we liked that everyone was very efficient and professional, while each having a fun and unique personality. Every part of the trip was so unique and we totally fell in love with the area. I haven't had that much fun in a long time! Phillip and I are hoping to make it up there to do one of the one day trips as well. I also have to thank you and the whole company for being so careful with our gluten allergy. After the first meal, seeing how careful you all were, I was able to relax and enjoy mealtime--which is usually something I can only do in my own home. That made the entire trip even better. Overall, I could not have been more happy with how everything went and we will definitely be adding rafting to our list of favorite activities! Thank you! -Tiffany"
  • "We had a great trip. It was good family time. I must say I have never had such luxurious camping before in my life. You guys did a great job and the food was fabulous. Thanks so much for everything. Love the pictures!"
  • "I still feel like I'm on the river! It was just a really fantastic experience for me.....so much so that as soon as I bought a used wet suit and went boogie boarding! I've been wanting to do that for twelve years, but feared those waves. Now I don't; I just "forward two"!!!!! Thank you, thank you, for your wonderful guidance and labor to allow us to enjoy the Rogue. Truly it was unforgettable........I'm telling friends (and sons) and who knows who might show up for the ride!? Play safe and know you have indeed changed lives for the better. -M.I."
  • "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. "
  • "My husband, 2 kids and myself went on the Rogue River in Oregon with Momentum. What a fantastic trip! The guides were very knowledgeable, fun and friendly. Our kids loved spending time with them. They had never been camping and truly enjoyed the experience. Our guides made our trip as smooth and safe as possible. We met great people on the trip and enjoyed making friends. Camp was always set up when we reached the beach that would be our abode for the night. It really helped us city dwellers to see our tent up every day! THANKS! They cooked delicious food every day, many times from scratch. Thanks to Orea, Mike and Zack for a great trip. We hope to make another trip with you all soon!"
  • "I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. Such a great adventure in one of the most beautiful river trips I've been on. The momentum team was super laid back, talented and professional. Shared lots of laughs and some great meals on our 3-day river lodge trip in mid-May. Could't have asked for a better time. Would highly recommend Tyler as your river guide and the Momentum team in making the trip extra special."
  • "Hey Erik, Thanks so much for a phenomenal trip. I don't think a rafting trip could be any better - great weather, amazing wilderness and fantastic people. Hope to see you again sometime in Ashland. Best, G"
  • "OMG ... What an incredible family reunion with the most amazing guides, camping hosts. Can't say enough. Trip of a lifetime. Thank you sooo much!!!"
  • "We just got back form our Rogue camping trip with Simon, Jane, and Cooper. We cannot say enough wonderful things about the journey and these three marvelous guides. We had the absolute best time and can't wait to do it again. The guides were AMAZING-truly gifts. They were positive, professional, enormously fun, and just plain old wonderful to spend time with. They really made the trip unforgettable. -L.M."
  • "Thanks Andy for a great time! I personally have not rafted so this experience was wonderful. I would do it again! I loved taking in the nature all around us. Looking forward to another LONGER trip."
  • "Rebecca, thank you so much for the great adventure we enjoyed. You truly love what you do and your enthusiasm is contagious! Thanks again for your expertise and sharing the adventure of the Rogue River. -Alex"
  • "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."
  • "Thanks Orea, you all were great people/friends/family. You all made it extra special, thanks again. -Mike and family"
