These folks are great! The Grand Ronde is a gorgeous river -- and the drive to get there is wonderfully pretty, too. The guides were very friendly and fun to talk with. I learned a lot from my guide who is a science teacher during the school year. He knew a ton about the geology and birds. Excellent food for... More

This is what I posted to Yelp after our first trip, and it remained completely accurate after our second. We love these guys and can't wait to leave on Sunday with 16 students for trip #3 - many students have chosen to return with us every year! We got home late last night from a five day trip down the... More

WWRE did a great job setting up and carrying out our one day trip from Troy to Boggans. It was a great time with excellent food and a pleasant and knowledgeable guide.

Our group of ten had a blast floating The Snake for three days, two nights., June 2-4. Everything from start to finish was seamless. The river itself is indescribable - beyond stunning. The guides and crew, Morgan, Robin, Todd and Emma were fun-loving, responsible, knowledgeable, hard working and great foodies. They provided a chill atmosphere while maintaining the highest standards... More

Just returned from a four night /five day trip down the Salmon and Snake Rivers with Paul and John from Winding Waters. While the fishing was slow, the service and food was some of the best I have experienced on a guided trip. From selecting sites, to setting up camp and preparing great meals as well as camp set ups,... More

We loved the Winding Waters River folks ~ we had nothing but fun and they really know how to make sure that everyone is comfortable, well-fed and mostly having a blast in the water. We all felt safe and their daily routines were never rushed and we never felt like we were missing anything. We would recommend these guys HIGHLY... More

We just returned from a 3-day 2-night rafting trip with our family of five (children ages 7, 9, and 11). We tend to be picky travelers but I can honestly say there was not one improvement suggestion that I could make. Everything was perfect, including the food, planning, the guides...everything. We rarely take vacations that are 100% relaxing but this... More

We took our 8 year old on his first ever river trip and so we wanted something easy - not much white water, more of a float, and that is what we got. Penny brought her daughter along which was perfect - my son and her daughter had a blast together. The river was spectacular, the trip to the put... More

Just finished my 3rd river rafting trip with this company. This one was with 3 generations of our family and everyone had a ball. The kayaks and water guns make it fun all day long. Paul and his staff take such good care of us that we will keep coming back.

Just spent 5 nights, 6 days with WWRE on the Snake River through Hell's Canyon (+ a day of guided fishing on the Wallowa). These guys are great! Friendly & professional staff, great food, good gear, etc. By whatever metric you want to measure these guys, they nailed it. I'm looking forward to going on a trip with them again... More
