Loved it!! Great from start to finish. Not too much, not too little for our 11 and 12 year olds’ first rafting experience. Owen was a fantastic guide!!!

Even with COVID restrictions, we enjoyed every minute of the Big Eddy Thriller. In fact, the fidelity with which Sun Country Tours enforced the public health rules is a testament to the quality of the whole operation. From check-in, to our 15-minute bus ride, to our 90-minutes on the river, no detail was overlooked. Owen was an exceptional guide: friendly, calm and ever-so-competent. The mix of slow water, rapids and exceptional views was delightful. I will recommend the Big Eddy Thriller to anyone planning a trip to Bend!

We had such a great time! Our guide, Evan, was amazing and really walked us thru what we had to do and what to expect. Our 9 year old daughter and 14 year old son were well taken care of and Evan made sure to include them and talk them thru everything. If you have a choice on which guide you get I would highly recommend Evan!

Came to Bend, OR with a large group of my best friends. We were looking for adventure and Sun Country Tours accommodated us. Great employees, equipment and all COVID precautions were in place. Our guide Hodge was knowledgeable, and had a keen sense of the rivers spirit. The lunch break was great and food was awesome! Would recommend this company!
