Highly recommend this tour operator and white water rafting trip in JH. Our guide, Lindsay, was great. The rapids were fun, the water freezing, but that only added to the overall enjoyment of the trip. Well organized with friendly, helpful staff. Definitely rent the booties to keep your feet warm if it's late in the season; makes a huge difference.

We did a river tour with Andrew last week and it was awesome!!!! He was super - knew so much about the area, answered all of our questions, and I felt very safe with him. The tour was incredible. I'll also note that Jason (who drove us to the tour) was awesome as well, and the woman who put out... More

VERY fun trip and the weather was perfect. I expected to be sore from paddling the whole time, but this was a very relaxed trip. We would paddle for at most 30 seconds before being given a rest. Both children and grandparents easily paddled the river while our guide steered. At different times of the year there are different water... More

I highly recommend the thrill of this Whitewater Adventure. We had a beautiful day, sensational river conditions, and a perfect guide. We took the 8-person small raft adventure. We had four in our party including two young adults and two in their 60s. Three in our group were fearless and actually went for a swim - but we all were... More

Barker-Ewing operates a short fun filled Class 2-3 raft trip on the Snake River. I am not much of a white water rafter but the guides made me feel very secure. The trip took us through a beautiful canyon. There were many Class 2 rapids and a few Class 3. We had our 8 year old grandson with us and... More

We had a blast on our whitewater rafting trip. Some in our group are fearless and some in our group were a little hesitant. This trip satisfied the fearless (ok some of us want to do a more extreme rafting adventure now)....but for the hesitant it was a great rush!! Dean, was absolutely the BEST. He was very capable and... More

We went whitewater rafting on the Snake river with sprat our guide he was a lot of fun. We like Brandy in the registration office she was very nice and helpful. Barker-Ewing runs a very safe and professional trip. Sprat made sure that children and adults understood their boating responsibilities and had fun.

We were referred by a friend to who used this firm the previous year and had sent a phone number to us. I was a little disappointed when I realized that their offices were not near bye however no problem they sent a courtesy shuttle. Not only were they very well organized they made the excursion more fun than it... More

Our guide, Mac, made us as educated as possible about things that could happen, the wildlife, and the scenery. It scared me to my bones, but also quite a thrill. They are the best!!

We had a group of 47 people that rafted over 2 days...the guides were all very fun and knowledgeable! We did the breakfast combo with the scenic float, breakfast and then the white water...will definitely do again if in Jackson Hole!
