My friend and I went on a full day jet boat tour of the Snake River, and a half-day rafting trip on the Salmon River. Both guides were extremely knowledgeable, and we had a blast on both trips.

It was a great raft, however, there was a few reasons why we didn't enjoy it:

- Lack of trust between river guides.

- River guides back-talking other guides, completely unprofessional behavior.

- Overall I'd recommend going with a different outfitting company. The rapids were great but they were somewhat unprofessional and rude towards other guides. We reserved a kayak only to find out that we had to share it, and there excuse was that it was hard to get them. I wouldn't do this again or recommend it to a friend.

PROs: Great time on the River. MRO is first class. Meals were outstanding...one was prepared in the middle of a torrential downpour and was still perfect (hard to do). Scenery was great but the real highlight was all of our guides. Austin, Sketchy Seth (personal favorite), Sarah, Red Beard (Steve), Dane, and AJ. Great personalities which really made for a fun time. The IK Duckies were tons of fun (probably more fun than the raft).

CONs: Would have preferred a water bottle rather than a coffee mug. Water was a little on the low flow side would have been better @ 20+k CFS. Wished the rafts/guides had a waterproof/bluetooth speaker to listen to some music on the river (just a suggestion for Brenda). More IKs to make the class IIIs more fun.

Went for a half day of fishing, had as our guide Thad, who turned out to be the perfect guide for us. We had one person with a lot of experience, a moderate amount and a novice. Thad was a good teacher and very patient and knowledgeable. We managed to do a lot of fishing and catching some bass. Thanks Thad for a great time.

I can't say enough great things about MRO and their incredible guides, Austin, Steve, Seth, Sarah, Dane and AJ!!! We were treated to incredible meals, great camping arrangements, great fishing, fun times on the one and two person inflatable kayaks "Duckies", great hikes to learn more of this river region, Great Rapid's experience with Wild Sheep, Granite, Upper and Lower Bernard Falls and much more! I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone and would love to do it again! Also, a huge shout out to the group we travelled with, 17 in total and you all were great! Thanks MRO!
