Let me start out by saying that the guides and rafting itself was great. However, if you are contemplating bringing a large group you may want to look for another event. We had a wedding party of 26 people over 2 days and Mad River requires a online waver for all participants to be filled out beforehand (we had some... More

Dear SeanTobin, First of all, I need to make one very important correction to your statement. Your assumption of billing for unsigned waivers is completely inaccurate. Waivers, signed or unsigned, have nothing to do with our cancellation policy. This is misleading for those considering a rafting trip and it would be a shame if they skipped this activity because of... More

We booked the white water rafting experience for a family of five. 3 children age from 6 to 16. All had great time, especially the 6 year old. The guide was well trained and knowledgeable, made sure everyone is having fun and has a chance to jump into the water for a short swim.

My wife and I had a great time floating the river with Ian as our guide. He was helpful and knowledgeable about the geography and the history of the area. Even though it rained we all still had a fantastic time. From the driver of the bus, to the office personnel everyone was friendly and helpful.

This is a top notch organization. Especially KC. My husband was a raft guide years ago and we have gone on private and commercial raft trips all over US and abroad, so we've seen great and no so great outfitters. The reservation process, facility etc. was very professional. We had some concerns before the trip based on our child's special... More

This was certainly a highlight for our visit to Jackson Hole. Wooly picked us up at our hotel and delivered us to the Mad River Headquarters. The place was covered up with people (tourists) not having clue what was going on. However, the very friendly and patient staff helped everyone find their way to the right area. Wooly was also...

Well run trip with good food. Staff friendly albeit sometimes too talkative. Kids had a great time and said it was better than PA whitewater

From the time we made our reservation on line to time we stepped off the raft the Mad River Team did a great job of keeping us informed. We had the river almost to ourselves and "Fitz" our guide did a great job keeping things fun for the whole boat. We will do this again next time we visit Jackson.

We had a great experience with Mad River. When the weather looked threatening for our planned float trip they let us reschedule for the next day which we really appreciated. Our guide "Woolly" was very knowledgeable, personable and experienced and we felt totally comfortable on the raft. The scenery was gorgeous and the float was very relaxing. They also gave... More

Lauri, Thank you for taking the time to write us such a nice review. We understand that for scenic floats you may not want to go in funky weather, and I'm happy to hear we were able to accommodate the switch to a better weather day. Wooley is a wonderful guide, and I'm glad that he made you feel comfortable... More
