My friends and I just completed a 4-day lodge-to-lodge hiking and rafting trip down the Rogue with OTT's super guides Mike and Trevor. It was flawless, the food and company was fantastic, and they took such good care of us! Loved all of Mike's folklore about the river and its characters. I hope to do another trip with them after...

You CANNOT deny the beauty of the rogue river. Unfortunately it seems the sunset wine tour is a bit of an after thought. The food & wine seemed to be from a local grocery store. Had I known it was so casual I would have asked to bring my own wine & food. The guide was amazing and the float... More

We had a great time from the sign up on line, helpful emails preparing us for our trip to the friendly greeting in Merlin. We embarked with our 1st time rafter who was a little nervous. Our guide Craig was superb at taking us down river, telling of local folk lore, pointing out the geology and getting us through the... More

I had so much fun on this trip! I went on a one day down the lower rogue, I think, it was amazing. LAZ was our guide, very informative, really nice and also pretty cute ;) will be back next summer for sure. MUCH BETTER THAN ROGUE WILDERNESS.

Jacob was our guide for the paddle board portion and he does a great job. Very patient and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend Jacob. Brandon was our guide for the rafting. Brandon was also very patient and does a great job and I'd highly recommend him as well. Reason they don't get 5 stars is because we have to wait at... More

My wife, Jill, and I (ages 74 and 75) took the 3-day rafting trip on the Rogue National Wild and Scenic River, spending the nights at two lodges along the river. The guides of Orange Torpedo Trips (OTT) were fantastic. Our guide-in-charge was Mike Slagle, who has been rafting on the Rogue for 45 years. There were two paddle rafts,... More

We did the half day rafting trip. While we have rafted previously, we are by no means experienced. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and very competent. The Rogue is peaceful and scenic. While we saw deer and birds, I was hoping to glimpse an otter. The rapids ranged from class II to class IV. All were a lot of... More

Probably one of our best trips ever. The scenery in the Rogue River wilderness was beyond amazing. The River was gentle at times, challenging at times, and very humbling always. The guides could not have been better. Mike, Stitch, Tim, Maya and Brandon were competent, so friendly we felt like they were family after half a day, and so much... More

One of the best family vacations we've ever had. Our children, 13, 11 and 8 had a wonderful time on the three day Rogue lodge trip. The guides were amazing professionals with great river skills and the a strong hospitality mindset. The inflatable kayaks are so much fun and even with no previous experience we were able to do class... More

We did a 3 day. 2 night trip on the Rogue River With Orange Torpedo. The scenery was just breathtaking and wild life every where. The trip was first class from the Boats, Gear and Guides. The attention to detail and Safety was always FIRST. We traveled in the small Torpedo Boats which made the trip extremely exciting for me.... More
