This was the first rafting trip for our 8 and 10-year old kids, and they loved every minute of our 1/2 day on the Rogue. Our guide gave the kids a great adventure - including "surfing" in the rapids and spinning the raft in circles as they futilely tried to hang onto the front. Don't be afraid to go if... More

Loved the 1/2 day rafting on the Rogue including the class 4 s! Nice scenery, herons, wild turkeys and deer. Even though water levels are low the first of October, water still moves swiftly and we still got wet in the rapids. The guide was great and served a snack after the first of the class 4s. It was too... More

My wife and I have been on other rafting trips but this was by far the most family friendly and fun trip we've been on! The guide was very thorough with the safety guidelines and acted very professional. We only did the 4 hour trip so it was quick but packed full of fun! I recommend this guide company to... More

My husband and I traveled down the upper Rogue with OTT for a day trip to celebrate out 30th anniversary. A combination of floating in the beautiful Rogue canyon with osprey and exhilarating paddling through the rapids then resting on the beach for a picnic with an excellent knowledgeable guide, Steven, who always directed us to the best rides in...

My family of 5 did the Lower Rogue river with Orange Torpedo. It is a great family trip. The guides were great. These guys are the Inflatable Kayak experts, so if you want to paddle your own boat, this is the outfitter you should choose. They also will do large rafts for people in your family that are a little... More

Although not inexpensive, this was an absolute highlight of a month-long trip to the US. Our guide and expert paddler, Brandon, was a friendly, informed and solicitous host on the inflateable raft. Our two boys, 8 and 6, loved getting drenched going through the grade 2 and 3 rapids, and really felt fully engaged in ensuring the safety and motion... More

Everybody took good care of us, especially my blind husband. They made sure to watch out for everyone. The food at the lodges was really good and there was a lot of it.

A perfect afternoon rafting on the Rogue River with our young boys (aged 8 and 6). This was definitely one of the highlights of a five week road trip around North California and Oregon Our guide was amazing, fun, helpful and safety conscious (contrary to one or two reviews below), and always eager to ensure that the boys were fully...

I loathe giving bad reviews, but when there is a lack of basic safety standards and common courtesy I feel it is important to speak out. From the start, I was dismayed when the guides skipped the review of basic safety procedures for the guests on the paddle and gear boat. This was followed by a lack of common courtesy... More

My husband, friend and I did the 3 day trip. This was the most exciting and beautiful trip we have experienced in a long time.
