Couldn't recommend more. Staff was awesome, they were great with the kids, always were safety conscious without being a buzzkill, and the food was fresh and homemade.

What a wonderful experience! I had lived in Stanley, Idaho in 1967 and this trip was a surprise gift from my daughter for my 70th birthday. We love doing fun things together & regard this as one of our most memorable experiences. Our guide, Ian, was so knowledgeable about the migration of the Salmon and the various birds we saw.... More

This white water outfit has it all. They are family friendly and provide all the gear you need. We had our 5 and 7 year olds with us for the boat trip. They had the 'best day of their lives ever' and that is a direct quote from my 5 year old. We were a group of 4 and had... More

I booked a raft trip for an annual employee summit my employer was having in the Sun Valley area. Right away, the folks at The River Company greeted us at the door and got us setup with gear and checked in. There was eight of us on two rafts and our guides (Fer and Sarah) were absolutely awesome!!! They made... More

The River Company is the best! Everyone there is so fun and friendly you can't help but have a great time! Our guide Beth was the best! We all loved her. Everyone had fun and we were all ages. From my mom to my young nephews, everyone had a blast. Thanks again!

This was my first experience with rafting at a 'senior' age and it was a totally satisfying experience. Turned out we were the only two on the boat with the guide, took the 3 hour trip in the afternoon. The weather was looking iffy for our day trip but Dave was in communication with us the night before, doing all... More

"MOST EXCELLENT" Dave and Heather Denning have put together a team of guides that are professional, encouraging and make the river trip a lot of fun. My son and I spent the day with them, enjoying the 11 mile trip, seeing beautiful country, wildlife and Class 3 Whitewater. A wonderful hot lunch was served by the crew, again in a... More

I would highly recommend going with The River Company for your rafting experience. My son and I have been on a few other rafting adventures and we both completely enjoyed ourselves. Look forward to visiting next June when the water is higher and more 4 & 5 rapids. All in all.....can't wait to visit again. All the staff were great!!!!

What a terrific outing- we had a family reunion in Sun Valley, and 15 of us, ages 5 to 70, in 3 rafts, had a wonderful time. The River Company is the best- highly professional in every way. This was my third time rafting with the River Company, and I would not use another service. Lunch was great, and our... More

We had 33 people on 4 different boats and 3 kayaks enjoying Class III rapids and spectacular Sawtooth Views for a day on the Salmon River. Dave Denning (Owner) and his talented guides provided a fun adventure suitable for our whole Ivins Clan (4 year-olds up to 70 year-olds). After all that fun on the river, we weren't expecting much...
