We had a great time with Lewis and Clark Expeditions. Luke was our guide and was fantastic. He did a great job with our kids. We saw 3 bald eagles and several osprey. I highly recommend this trip and company.

I have to admit I was apprehensive about this because we had never gone white water rafting before. I am so glad we did not back out. Luke was an awesome guide and we loved it! I highly recommend taking a raft trip with Lewis and Clark, they have a fantastic staff! Family vacation memoies of a lifetime.

Now that you have one under your belt you can have the confidence to go rafting again. It's really a great river for beginners. Thanks for the review. More

I had a terrific white water trip this last weekend! This time of year, the water is a little lower, which encourages swimmers in the calmer stretches, but there is plenty of excitement at the rapids. The other passengers included kids and adults - the more adventurous could "ride the bull" for extra thrills. We saw bald eagles and a... More

We chose Lewis and Clark over the other Jackson companies, we looked at reviews and were impressed what we read. That was the best decision we could have made. Our whitewater trip was on Monday 8/22, our guide was Luke, he was amazing! Luke gave all the safety tips and the what if's, so I really felt prepared for anything.... More

I have lived in Jackson Hole for over 30 years and there are many choices when it comes to a fun trip down the Snake. I have tried most of them, but Lewis and Clark is my very FAVORITE!!! They will make your trip down the Snake River extremely special. Whether you choose a short day trip or a dinner... More

We did the Classic 8-Mile Expedition. Our guide was Collin who was great! We have a family of 5 with 3 younger kids (11,11,8). The kids are still talking about the adventure and it was a highlight of their trip.

We wanted to go white water rafting and I did not know about any of the local providers. This one proved to be a good choice. We were staying only a block away, so it was convenient, too. We arrived early, were provided our wet suits and booties (a must if you don't want to get cold or have kids).... More

We went on a white water rafting trip with our guide Aaron. He was amazing! First of all, he ensured were were all safe and prepared for our trip over the white water. My one son was a little nervous and Aaron's chilled attitude and jokes put him at ease. My other son had a wet suit on (they provide... More

Very disappointed in the amount of time Actually spent on the river rafting. Notice I said actual time rafting. $160 for 2 people for maybe 1.5 hours total on the water. It was almost an hour ride by bus to launch and hour back. Most of the entire rafting trip was in calm lifeless water. There were about 4 good... More

Sorry for your disappointment. We always describe our trips to folks who book with us, including travel time, time on water, etc. Walt Disney did not create this experience, and certain geological facts are in play, including the topography of the river, distance from town, and amount of snow melt in August. It is about a 35-40 minute ride to... More

My family went on a "Classic 8 mile white water trip" which included dinner on the river following the trip. My husband and I have prior rafting experience but this time our kids (10 and 14)were coming along on their first rafting trip... Our guide, Aaron, was great - Clearly very experienced and had great command of his boat and... More
