I am not sure what was better - the incredible "River of No Return" Wilderness, or the fantastic guides who got us through it. The tour alternated between unbelievable relaxation and exhilarating thrills through the whitewater. And through it all, the guides at MFRT - led by Scoop and Clint - made sure that it was the best experience possible.... More

I've gone on dozens of river trips and worked as a guide in the industry, and I can't say enough about the MFRE crew: Jamie, Kate, Treesh, Scott, Ivan, and Mark. Each one was personable, smart, and hugely talented on the river. Plus, they did such an amazing job of helping our group get to know each other. The other... More

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho is beautiful. I loved being on the river at the bottom of the canyon with the sawtooth mountains surrounding us. A week off the grid, no phones, computers, electricity . . . ahhhhh!. The Middle Fork River Expeditions crew are experienced, knowledgable about so many things, friendly, incredible chefs and more.... More

We, including my husband, several cousins, friends, and people previously unknown to us. went down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River from August 5-10 with Clint Frank and his crew of six. Before we left, I had thought the price slightly expensive: not now - it was worth every penny and the problems of getting there from west central... More

Just got back from a week of rafting on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with Middle Fork River Tours. Clint and Molly Frank run a first rate operation with experienced guides and top-notch service. Their equipment was excellent: Good sleeping mats and bags, and, if you have to sleep in a tent, theirs were fine. They provide dry... More

My family and I recently enjoyed a wonderful vacation early August 2014 with Rocky Mountain River Tours. It was an incredible adventure with a top notch company. They were incredibly organized and helpful, from the day we put our deposit down until the day we said goodbye. The river guides were professional and knowledgeable. They worked extremely hard to make... More

We booked the Middle Fork rafting trip with ARTA, and were not disappointed. We had a great team of guides and boatmen, (and woman) who took excellent care of us. The scenery was beautiful, many hikes, fishing, and even a hot spring. The campsites were gorgeous, the food excellent and the scenery outstanding. We were shown ancient Indian rock art,... More
