We enjoyed a fun day on the river with the River Company! A very organized outfitter, plenty of splash gear to keep you warm on a cool day. The guides were really fun, especially with the younger kids. The day trip with lunch was perfect for us. Fun and splashy with opportunities to swim. The lunch was delicious! Couldn't have... More

The River Company provided all the gear we need to stay warm enough on a cool day. The guides were excellent and knowledgable, the food delicious, and we never felt in danger in any way. It was a great way for our family, with four children, to spend a 1/2 day. The pictures were fun too. We loved it so... More

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

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!!!!
