What Our Guests Say about their river trip
"What an experience! The guides were exceptional as was the food. It was
magical how they turned out a gourmet meal every morning, noon and evening right there in the
wilderness. Oregon is a beautiful state...the scenery unsurpassed. It will live in my memory a
long time. I'm glad I chose ORE!"
Elenore S., Rogue River
"We Loved Our Trip With You! Connie and Nancy and I are still re-living each
glorious day on the river... remembering all the greenery around us, the rushing water, the sound of
being summoned to fantastic meals on the river bank, and the knowledge and encouragement of the guides throughout the trip. It was truly a fantastic experience! I cannot imagine how the trip could have been better. We rowed the whole river ourselves with the exception of the top of Blossom Bar which Kate rowed us through and then turned the oars back to us. I can't thank you enough for allowing me to re-live my dream of running this magnificent river like I did 30 years ago, and for acquainting Nancy and Connie with an experience that they'll never forget."

I had the sheer pleasure of rafting with O.R.E. this past July. The guides really made this experience a joy. Outstanding customer service - you have, I believe, some of the greatest employees a company could have. Their spirit, charisma and positive attitude were always present.

but this confirmation and information email was great! It's the little things like this that truly make a group like ORE stand out. I think Joe and I are going to have a great time and we're really lucky to have found you randomly on the web!"
