    They communicated prior to our scheduled trip so there was no confusion or uncertainty when we arrived. They offered sound advice on wet suits for our group. They weren't pushy. Our guide (Roger) was great. He was talkative so we were never bored. He paid special attention to the kids. Everbody had a blast. I highly recommend this company and would do it again.

    What an amazing trip! Our guide Sandy was awesome he seemed to be able to read our energy and know we wanted to hit the Rapids hard. He taught us how to do that and really made for a memorable trip. I haven't heard my teenagers belly laugh that hard in a long time. I highly recommend using this business for your next whitewater rafting trip. Everyone was great very professional clean and made us feel safe in a not always safe environment. 10☆

    Dave Hansen Whitewater Adventures provided an excellent whitewater experience on the Snake River. Their customer service is great, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The guide provided detailed information about the wildlife and river formations along the trip. We saw a couple of bald eagles, a weasel, marmots and various types of birds. One of the most impressive things on the trip was how well organized and professional the trip was run. The trip left on time and returned at the advertised time. This is really great when planning other activities . I highly recommend Dave Hansen Whitewater Adventures!

    Had a terrific time on this trip! They have everything you need to enjoy the river. The guides make you feel extremely safe in the event anything unexpected happens. They contacted me a few days in advance to confirm our booking. I can't say enough about how terrific of a time we had. We saw a balls eagle while on our trip down the river. Stunning views. Rapids were so fun!

    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!
