Can't say enough about how positive our half day white water rafting experience was... lovely, spirited, responsible, funny, entertaining young guides. Nick was the guide in our raft, supported by Jill as our safety person in a separate boat. They did all the heavy lifting and let us enjoy the ride! Very helpful all the way through from planning the trip to picking us up the day of, teaching us about the gear and the paddling, giving us a tour of the river, passing out snacks, providing all the outer gear we needed, and handling the raft loading and unloading. And they got us back in time for our play. We loved our trip and will go back often!

From arrival to return we experienced great customer service. Driven in van by Ben, felt safe. At river putin, Ben served snacks. Guides Keven and Bryon gave safety briefing, answering questions with knowledge. Each were polite and good river dirvers. The Upper Klamath is a difficult river, three Class IV + rapids in quick succession. we felt safe as guides gave understandable commands to keep us have fun while enjoying being drentched. Lunch was superb. Thanks to Kokopelli.

Started the day with an excellent driver who took us safely to the input, fed us fruit and muffins and sent us off on the Upper Klamath. Our guide was also most excellent, putting us perfectly in the right spot for the most exciting ride. Lunch was delicious and more excitement and a little bit of relaxing. We really felt well cared for. My favorite day trip. Don't miss this most excellent adventure!!

Our 8-person group -- two families with adults and teens -- just completed a daylong trip down the Upper Klamath River, and we're ready to plan our next trip for 2012! Our group is not made up of hard-core outdoorsy types, but every single one of us enjoys the combination of exhilarating rapids, and just floating a hot and beautiful stretch of river. We used Kokopelli a couple of years ago for a two-day trip, and never considered using other guides for this trip. Last time, one of our paddlers fell out of the boat during one of the trickier rapids, and our guide had ahold of her in a nano second. These guys know their stuff -- they know the river, of course, and do a great job of providing the instruction needed to prepare folks for difficult situations without scaring new paddlers. But the personable guides also can provide a wealth of information about the Upper Klamath, its history and its ecosystem. Oh, and where to get a good pizza afterward too.

My two daughters and I took our first ever rafting trip down the upper Klamath, it was wonderful, thrilling and beautiful. Our guide Kevin was very knowledgeable and professional. I am only rating our trip with three stars though, because the trip to the river was very scary. The road to the river is a two lane, curvy, mountain road, and the driver of our van was nodding off while driving, barely able to stay awake, very unprofessional and unacceptable.
