“Best Family Trip Ever!”
Reviewed 13 November 2009

We had so much fun rafting with the River Company!!! It was a most memorable trip for our entire family, grandparents too. The kids still talk about rafting and our entertaining guide. The food was mouthwatering and you get to eat at table set up right along the river bank. Beautiful! I highly recommend this trip. It was our Best family reunion adventure ever!

“Awesome experience and great food!”
Reviewed 12 November 2009

These guys MADE our trip to Idaho! The whitewater rafting was amazing. Our guide was very informative and funny- had lots of info on the area. They provided everything we needed and we felt totally safe. They provide an awesome lunch too, bbq chicken and homemade cookies to die for!

“Amazing Day rafting with The River Company on the Salmon River”
Reviewed 17 August 2009

Our family of 5, 2 adults and 3 children ages 9, 11, and 13 all had a wonderful experience with The River Company. I originally booked it online. There were many companies to choose from and I randomly picked this company. There website was easy to navigate and was generally appealing. I am so happy that I did. Originally when we were first arrived in Hailey and Ketchum I noticed there wasn't alot of their advertising so was somewhat concerned but please be assured it was an A+ experience.
After an hour and 15 minute drive from Hailey we arrived to a friendly group of guides. They were all fun and professional while helping us get fitted for life vests etc. We also met the owner, his wife and their child. We then took a 20 minute bus ride where we began our river rafting experience. We had never taken our family rafting so this 1/2 day trip with lunch was a great way to start. There were a few class 3's but a majority of the trip was very relaxing. If you are looking for a lot of excitement, class 2's and 3's are probably not the ride for you. We also stopped at jump rock where the kids all jumped off as did the guides. It was a very fun environment. Lunch was served along the river and consisted of chicken, salad, rice, chips/salsa and watermelon. Lunch came with lemonade but they were more than willing to bring your beer/wine that you left with them in the morning. Clean porta potties were also available when we stopped for lunch. After lunch we all got back on our rafts and rafted for another 20 minutes or so and then caught the bus back to the "store" where a slideshow awaited us of our experience. The cd was for sale for $20.00 with great clarity and ability to print photos for yourself.

I would highly recommend The River Company for their enthusiasm, fun guides, great food and overall wonderful experience.
