We love seeing what our guests have to say when they come off the river. Not only do we hear great feedback as to how to make our trips even better for the coming years, we also hear about how our trips have helped make guests' summers the best they could be.
Here are some of our favorite and most heartwarming guest quotes of the season so far accompanied by some epic photos taken by one of our guests:
Rogue River Rafting Reviews
"They were fabulously energetic, patient with kids, charming with adults and total rock-hard studs on the boats. I loved each and every one of them. The best! You guys run a classy and well-honed operation. We loved the food, pace, mix of fun in the water (swim adventures) plus side hike options. We are ready for the next trip.....now"
You guys rocked it! I've been around may outfitters and guides over the years, your staff is one of the best teams of river professionals in the business. Outstanding crew!
"Of all the stuff I have done and seen over the last 18 months living in California, this trip on the Rogue River was the most fun, relaxing, action-packed, well-tasting adventure off all! I cannot find a single thing that was sub-optimal. Perfect water, rapids, boats, guides, food, weather, wildlife etc. Nothing beats sleeping under the stars on a warm night, listening to the river and waking up to a beautiful sunrise with Bald Eagles soaring above."
"We already talked about coming back next year!"
"I can't even begin to tell you the sheer magic that manifests on a NWRC trip! Between the unparalleled beauty of the Rogue's river wilderness, awe-inspiring outdoor eating (the food is so good!), and guides who manage to simultaneously be both your best friend and an industry leading professional, this experience will leave you wilderness-soaked and wanting more!"
"Our guides were so personable, knowledgeable, and very professional. Felt safe and happy the whole way."
"I had no idea what to expect coming on this trip and it was more amazing than I could have imagined. The entire experience sparked something inside me and I now find myself more patient and peaceful, while also feeling more daring and adventurous. I cant't wait for the next one!. Amazing people, fantastic guides (know there stuff!!!), absolutely loved them :)"
"Great energy, respect, creativity and a nice mix of fun and safety! The combination of the beautiful scenery, exciting rapids, and fantastic guides is really hard to beat. Our entire family (2 adults, 3 children) had an amazing trip."
But really, why be so wordy when it can be summed up in these two words...
"Amazeballs and unforgettable!"

This week I got to know former raft guide and current co-owner of Serenade, Kaela Fox. She and her partner (& fiancé!) Austin organize beautiful events in and around Portland, combining their two passions: local food and local music. Once a year they bring those two lovely elements to our Serenade Rogue River trip, making for an incredible feast of the senses. 1. When did you start working as a river guide?
