“We enjoyed all of our Middle Fork Salmon trip. The guides, the scenery, the folks in the trip with us, the water fights, the hikes, the water falls, the food, but most of all…the river. You can’t improve anything. My trip, on a scale of 1 to 10, was 500. It was perfect… Our guides were so perfect. Loved the kids, the adults, they were perfect for all of us. The food they prepared was awesome. I have been home a week and a half and I have not stopped talking about this trip. I never would have imagined how much my 12 year old son and I would have loved a trip. Will we be back?? No doubt about it, many times. I hope that he will take his kids on the river some day.”

“If I took the best experiences I have had on all my trips from over 50 years combined they couldn’t hold a candle to the fun I had with OARS”

“Our family is just back from your Middle Fork of the Salmon trip which was over the top in every way. It had been 30 years since my father and I had last run the Middle Fork together, so the trip was a sentimental one– and it was our boys’ first multi-day raft trip, so that made for quite a week. Anyway, I just wanted to say that our guides…made a huge impression on us. The boys especially. They went above and beyond in every sense and made our trip truly one of the most memorable we’ve EVER taken as a family. I can’t say enough about their professionalism, spirit, and sense of fun. They were absolutely remarkable. ”

“An outstanding trip in all regards – extremely well planned and executed. Guides were knowledgeable, approachable, accommodating – showed true concern for the enjoyment of the clients. Trip was exactly as advertised. Will definitely travel with OARS again and highly recommend it to others.”

-Christine Lyons ~ Hanover, MA

“While we were on the river, we had a chance to observe several other groups traveling at the same time. I’m glad we traveled with OARS. The trip is well-organized without being overly scheduled. The guides know the area well and keep things moving so that we get the most out of each day, but still have plenty of down time. And the guides themselves were great! They were very knowledgeable and skilled, but also very personable. It was a great pleasure to travel with them.”
