From the helpful gals at the front desk to our friendly bus driver, James, and our amazing river guide, Stackhouse, Mad River was a blast... Our kids are 12 and 9, and they loved every minute--eagles, ospreys, kingfishers, RAPIDS, and more! This was the perfect family adventure and the stuff of the very best memories...

This was an awesome experience. From first booking to end. Caitlyn was sooo helpful on the phone answering my questions and getting us all set up. I had a prior scary experience on a class IV whitewater trip in Canada and was apprehensive not knowing much about the Snake River as well as we are now older (60yr). I had... More

Great time on the Snake River! We took the smaller six person raft to up the excitement, and we had a blast! Our guide Christian was knowledgeable and always in control of the raft. I would highly recommend them.

2nd time we've been rafting as a family. We have two young kids and we were with the guide in an 8 person raft. The other people had canceled so it was just us. We had a lot of fun but my younger child and my husband fell out at the Big Kahuna Rapids (level 3 but we watched another... More

Totally fun, safe, professional. Did the morning with breakfast trip. River a bit low but still hit some good stuff - keep your mouth closed going into Big Kahuna (I can still taste the river.) Our guide Mark was excellent!

We just arrived home from a wonderful vacation out West, one of the highlights of which was white water rafting down the Snake River with Mad River Boat Trips. Our guide- Rob- was very experienced and skillfully guided us through the rapids - it was thrilling but never felt dangerous. Had time in between the rapids to jump in for... More

water was very high and very fast = quick raft trip. Rapids were good. Key points Safety is important yes, informative yes, fun yes. Shorter in distance than most raft trips but there were good rapids in the short distance. Would do it again. For Jackson - it is a good value but more expensive that most for other places... More

Ben was a fantastic tour guide. He engaged everyone in the boat and made us all feel like we were an integral part of the ride, even though he was totally in control the entire time. It was exciting, but nobody was ever scared and we always felt safe. We saw a bald eagle, several ospreys, and Ben was always... More

Just finished running the river this morning with the family. We had an exceptional guide that was a perfect match for our family. The provided breakfast was great...no complaints from the kids.

We took the morning float ride. We were 6 adults and our family was lucky to be the only ones on the raft that morning. We enjoyed our guide Adam and his commentary. Saw some eagles. It was a great relaxing time with outstanding scenery!
