We booked with Barker Ewing on the basis of great reviews and we were definitely not disappointed! Our guide Austin was fantastic, with a running commentary combining a mixture of information and general fun. The trip itself was a mix of level 2 and 3 rapids which were great, but also some slower sections where you could take in the... More

I highly recommend doing the breakfast tour, what an amazing experience. Not only do you get to float and see Snake River and all of its wonders, but you get to eat the most amazing pancakes I have ever tasted! Our guide, Eric, was very educated about all of the wildlife and other interesting facts about the river. I also... More

We went on a Scenic Combo trip in Jackson with BE Whitewater. It was very well organized, very well guided, our guide Mac (with a C) was just great fun and knowledgable about the area and the animals we saw. We brought our children, two of them only 12 years, they swam in the river and sat up front during... More

Brook was a great guide. Funny, nicr and thorough. Our 10&14 yr olds loved it. My 10 yr old and I didn't want to paddle so I sat inside and she got a spot up front (got drenched at first rapids). Lots more rapids than in Smokies. We all got soaked. It was a sunny day but wind was awfully... More

We started our vacation with this trip and it was exceptional! Our guide Raleigh, was not only very experienced he was humorous and at least put me at ease and reassured us that we would be fine in the whitewater. He instructed all with clarity and provided a sense of team spirit that made the trip exciting and enjoyable. Kudos... More

Hi RnKtravels, Thanks for the 5-star review! We are ecstatic that you enjoyed your 16-mile Breakfast Combo Trip. This Combo trip really is the best of both worlds- wildlife sightings on the calm scenic portion, and getting soaked on the thrilling whitewater. Safety is our first priority, so I'm happy to hear that you felt comfortable and safe with Raleigh.... More

Barker-Ewing is far and away the best rafting company on the Snake River. They have the nicest offices, staff, and guides. First things first are the intangibles. The Snake River is spectacular, with exciting rapids (none that make you nervous or scared which is good) and lots of wildlife. It's extremely clean, refreshingly cold, and is generally quite shallow (in... More

We booked our trip online a few weeks ahead of time. The booking confirmation gave lots of details regarding arrival times and parking which made it easy to find. The whole process was very organized and went smoothly. As for the rafting, our guide Austin did a great job of mixing humor, teaching and just having a good time. It... More

This group was very organized, clearly knew what they were doing, and paid attention to make sure that our group of 7 paddlers had a great time. Dan was our guide and he shared a lot of history of the area, info about the fauna and flora - and we saw a bald eagle flying right up the river. And... More

Company overall was great and our guide, Reed, was awesome. If you're looking for a balance of exciting white water rafting with a feeling of safety for a family, this was the company.

From the very beginning Barker-Ewing staff showed great customer service. We booked an overnight campus & rafting. The bus ride was about 25 minutes to launch where we met Brook. She loaded up our bags in a dry bag for our scenic float where 2 pre teen guests got a chance to row. Once at camp Will and Brook treated... More
