    We had a great time white water rafting on the Snake River with Dave Hansen Trips. Very professional and well organized. They took good precautions for COVID-19. Most of all, Caleigh our guide made our trip. She was fun, upbeat, and made sure that all the people in our boat had a great time. She made a point to remember everyone by name, and made great conversation with all. I will definitely return.

    Fun day on the water while staying in Jackson. Our guide, Vlad, was incredible. Our trip was the last day of the season with water low, so rapids were on the small side. Vlad made the trip super fun by making most of rapids and telling us the history of the area and tales of crazy trips earlier in the year. I’m excited to plan a multi-day trip now for late Spring melting season.

    We had a great time working our rafting trip with Dave Hansen Whitewater rafting. Everything was managed professionally. We were transported to the river in a bus and I was quite impressed at how careful the driver was , I felt quite safe as he transported us to the river. We were divided into groups and turned over to an experienced rafting guide who made sure we understood all the safety measures of rafting. We had a great time on the river going through the Rapids and enjoying the scenery. I felt this company provided a successful experience for us and I would recommend them.

    Roger and the DH crew were great. I had a tight schedule and the office staffed worked to get me in on short notice. It was an amazing adventure. I can't recommend Daven Hansen enough. Roger was extremely knowledgeable about the area and graciously answered all of our questions. The office staff and bus drivers made us all feel safe with the additional precautions in place for the pandemic. Thank you so much for the memories.

    Chose the low key raft trip because the wife was trying to avoid too much excitement. Worth the price. Very impressed with our guide. Understated but very capable. There was actually some white water on our supposedly serene trip. We were supposed to stay dry but 2 Young people ( my kids 16,25)slipped into the water And hung on the side of the raft for a more exciting experience and were assisted easily back into the boat by the guide- who knew what he was doing. He explained that he was an EMT and was trained to bring people out of the water single-handedly. I was very impressed with him and with the organization that employed him. I peppered him with all sorts of questions and he gave very intelligent answers about the region,the way of life of Jackson hole, Hunting elk, and other topics. I’m from New York City and I’m not easily impressed - but I was this time.
