What a beautiful day for a great trip down the Snake River. Scenery was fantastic, staff were friendly and helpful, the whole thing was easy. We saw all kinds of birds (King Fisher, Sand Pipers, Red Wing Blackbirds, Blue Herons, and an Egret) plus the Wild Horses. We are definitely going to do this again.

I don't have any. My trip was a nightmare. I will not experience that again in this life. Three weeks later I'm still sore. However, the staff was excellent.

Hi Denise, You certainly had a challenging experience with the river. We understand it was not what any of us would want. We hope your soreness goes away soon. You are in our thoughts. Wishing you the best. Sean A'lee
