We loved the small rafting group. It was a great experience to get to know our guides and the other family on our trip. I highly recommend it over the larger tour companies that we passed along the river.

I took my two granddaughters, their mother and my aunt on a one day raft trip on the Deshutes River. It was fabulous! Amen was our guide and I think he enjoyed it as much as we did. It was very nice we had a raft with just us on it with our guide. Plenty of rapids for thrills and... More

We had a spectacular day on the river with Ouzel! I cannot say enough praise about this company and their guides. Our guide, Alondra, was extremely knowledgable and made sure we all had a fantastic time. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. We had 5 families with kids ranging from 7 to 15. Thank you Ouzel and Alondra!!!

We booked a day trip down the Deschuttes for our family (3 adults and two kids ages 9 and 11). Will and Sara were our guides for the day. They were friendly and fun and memorable for everyone. Will took special care to ensure that the boys not only had a blast but were safe. Both guides made an effort... More

My first experience river rafting was perfect. Ouzel gave me clear written instructions before my full day raft trip down the Mackenzie River. I felt very prepared. Shuttle was exactly on time. My guide Cameron was awesome. It was clear that he enjoys what he does and likes people. His knowledge of the river, trees and wildlife enhanced the experience.... More

We arranged a trip for 4th of July weekend at the last minute, for a large group. Brian at Ouzel worked very hard to put the trip together including the logistics from Sisters. We had two great guides, including Alondra (she was the guide in my boat) who provided lots of local history in addition to information about the river.... More

Our family of four, including one teen and one tween, had a fantastic day on the Deschutes. Ouzel was fantastic from beginning to end with their contact and professionalism and fun. We did the full day on the Deschutes and met our guides in Maupin. Hot weather made the cool river feel great and our side trips to the White... More

We had a great day on our all-day Dechutes rafting trip today. This is a perfect trip for families with school -aged kids who want to get wet, ride some class II and III rapids, and enjoy a beautiful day on the river. Our guide Sam was great with our kids and taught us fun water games like Wheel of... More

Some friends of ours suggested we join them on a 4 day, 3 night Rogue River trip with Ouzel Outfitters. We usually go for cheaper, unguided, types of vacations but we really enjoyed this one. It was worth the extra money to get to experience something that we don't have the equipment or expertise to do on our own. Our... More
