This trip met my expectations beyond my wildest dreams. The scenerly along the river was spectacular and the rafting experience was exhilarating. Our guides--Lars, Seth Nate and Jimmy James-- were professional, knowledgable, entertaining, and accommodating. They were consistently concerned with our safety and comfort, not to mention amazing chefs!

I have never been so relaxed and happy at the end of a vacation. This trip was everything I expected and more. The guides were top notch and the mixture of lazy river floating and whitewater excitement was just right (mid-September trip) followed by a beautiful aerial tour on the way home! I will absolutely be joining your team for another vacation and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who asks.

I would never want to be on a private trip down Cataract. Going with professional guides who know what they're doing is so worth it! They know the canyon, the water, and how to get you through safely. Highly recommended!

The guides were fantastic, both their knowledge of the area and their competency. I've run Northwest rivers myself beginning in the early 70's and I have to say this trip was full of spectacular scenery and the river itself is a ball. Not having to worry about the weather was a refreshing change for us. Our grandchildren were a bit apprehensive before the whitewater sections but our guides made it easy for them as well as fun. A great time was had by all.

I have a gluten allergy, and the guides went up and beyond to provide amazing food for me.. I was so impressed with the french toast- it was superb. The guides always made us feel safe- even when we were hitting major "high water"
