Rafting with Bear Valley was hands down the best day of our week long vacation in Idaho as well as the best rafting trip we've ever been on. We went on the full day South Fork Payette trip. I knew it was going to be a fun trip when our guide Howie walked up and said "Howdy, y'all!" and his helmet was unique as you can see in the photo. He was skilled, funny, and entertaining which made the trip that much more enjoyable. Lunch was tasty and a nice break. Didn't hurt that 11 Marine recruiters were in the other 2 rafts and lunched with us. God bless America! Melody & Sam

JACOB was great. AWESOME with the young kids and stories. Breakfast sandwich coffee and cinnamon roll was what we needed. Will do again full day trip. Half day trip was perfect for the little kiddos

We've been rafting on the Payette rivers out of the Boise, (ID) area for several years. The Carbarton section of the N. Fork Payette River was the last section that we had not been on. Our trip with guides Nate and Byron was great! Good conversation, expert "boat driving" and a nice lunch made the trip a good adventure. Thanks to BVR for the opportunity to check this stretch off our list.

Great trip! Fun guides! Tommy is the best! The portage was a cool experience. Hot spring showers and pools. Wonderful Caesar salad. Professional, safe and fun!
