We finally got up the nerve to bring our 5 and 9 year olds rafting, and this trip was an excellent introduction for them. Our guide, Jill, was amazing - very sweet with the kids, pointing out all kinds of wildlife, stopping to let them pick blackberries, swim off the raft, and try to balance on the raft while she swung us in circles in a calm spot. She made the class 1 and 2 rapids fun (not scary) and we always felt safe with her. The highlight of the trip was when the kids felt comfortable enough to sit up on the very front of the boat going through rapids. Wee! I can't recommend this trip highly enough as a first rafting trip for young ones. It was a great day!

Thank you so much for the very nice review about your rafting trip on the Tree of Heaven section of river. I remember Jill coming back from your trip and saying how much fun she had with your kids. She is very good with the little ones and makes a very mild rafting trip seem more exciting and fun for everyone. Thank you so much for choosing Kokopelli River Guides for your first rafting trip with a 5 and 9 year old. We look forward to seeing you again as your kids get older in the years to come.
All the best,
Leslie Dopp, co-owner

Went on a WWR trip with my wife and my 21 and 15 year old children. Guide was excellent, water was nice and cool, in contrast to the hot weather. Scenery was great. We were picked up at the hotel on schedule, and had the guide had snacks ready for us when we were done. We had a great afternoon, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

We really appreciate your review of your recent rafting trip on the Rogue River with Kokopelli River Guides. Your guide, Steve, came back after the trip and said your group was a lot of fun and you had a great time. We are so glad you chose Kokopelli River Guides for your whitewater rafting adventure. We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are in Southern Oregon. Have a great rest of 2015!
All the best,

The river was more fun than we ever imagined, you definitely get wet! Beautiful scenery, very competent guide. Enjoyed the whole experience from the first call to the company to the drop off back at our hotel.

The only reason I'm giving them one star is because you can't rate lower. I called to make reservations the day before for a half day rafting trip for our group, and was told we would be picked up at our hotel at 845am. The group arrived in the lobby by 820 to wait for the pick up. After waiting in the lobby an hour we finally received a call saying one of the guides was late and they didn't know what time they would arrive to pick us up. We were annoyed but wanted to go so we kept waiting. Finally at 945 an HOUR after we were supposed to be on our way to the river the guide called us back and said they were short a guide so they would have to put us all on one raft when we were supposed have two and he would be an additional 30 minutes late. We haven't even stepped foot on the van yet and this is already the worst rafting experience I've ever had. This company is extremely unorganized and turned what was supposed to be a fun family adventure on the water to a miserable two hour wait in a hotel lobby. Hopefully the actual trip is worth it.

we are traveling nurses from new york so we wanted to get advice from our coworkers on worthwhile activities in the area and Rouge River rafting was at the top of their list. Kokopelli River Guides was the first place we called and they did not disappoint. The pickup location was easy to find and the guilds showed up on time. Both of them were friendly and knowledgable. The whole trip was memorable and I highly recommend it,
