    We loved everything about white water rafting from start to finish. The company were so responsive and followed up with us a few days before the event to make sure we had everything we needed and knew where to go. On the day, the check in was smooth and we were given the right size wet suits. Loved the energy of all the staff. Ben, our guide on the raft, was excellent. He pointed out a couple of bald eagles and made sure everyone had a fun experience. I would highly recommend it!

    My family and I had a great time on the scenic river raft! Our tour guide Brian was awesome! It was a very relaxing trip down the river where we saw many eagles and other wild life out there! I would highly recommend them if you're looking for a fun relaxing thing to do with the family. Brian even let those that wanted take turns steering and rowing the boat for a while, which was fun too. The entire experience was good from start to finish!

    We took our family of 7 on a scenic tour. It was early in the season and we felt that best for our young ones. However our teens had white water envy. Our guide was Bryce and he did a fantastic job of keeping the adults, teens, and young ones engaged. Everyone at Dave Hansen has a passion for the area and river guiding. This lends to a great experience for their guests. We could tell that the whole team from taking our phone call to the bus driver to their guides worked together to give us a great experience. Thank you Bryce and team!

    We had an awesome time!! Great service! Fantastic communication. Kids get wet suits included which was nice in the icy river water. We were lucky enough to get Alex as our guide! Great guy! This was our first time for our family with kids 9, 11, and 13, and they had the best experience! Highly recommend!

    Our family had a wonderful experience on the 8 mile white water rafting trip. Our guide Brian was super cool and fun. His excellent knowledge about the Snack River and good humor ensured everyone in the raft felt safe and had a great time. Everyone was soaked! We saw a bald eagle. My teenage son had a blast "Bull riding" on the front of the raft through the Lunch counter. Getting the "Snake River Swim Team" bracelet added to the fun. The bus driver Sam was very efficient and professional, the rides to the river were smooth and we enjoyed the beautiful views. Highly recommend!
