    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.

    Extremely nice RV park, but only for smaller RVs. Bathrooms and laundry facility were well maintained. Park employees are very friendly. Highly recommend.

    Professional experienced staff! It was my family's first time rafting and they explained all the safety we needed. Our guide was was friendly and very experienced knowing the route and pointing out wildlife on the way. We rafted the fourth of July and it was booked, but everything ran like clock work. The staff even pulled the bus over on the way back and took pictures for us with the river behind us. Great experience all the way around. We would love to raft with you again! The professional photographer at Lunchbox was a plus to capture our adventure!
