My family and I took a trip with Rocky Mountain River Tours in late June 2012. I have never had a better vacation anywhere! I left feeling rejuvenated.
The group included 24 guests, of which my family was 9. My dad has been on trips with RMRT twice, both of which were around 25 years ago. Dad wanted us to experience the Middle Fork and wanted to see us enjoy it, so he took us all -- my family of 4 (boys ages 11 and 15) and my brother's family of 4 (girls ages 13 and 15). Dad is 71 and has ankle and knee problems that make it difficult to walk on uneven surfaces. Dave Mills told me not to worry -- the guides would take care of him. Did they ever! Negotiating every step in and out of the boat with him, they professionally maneuvered him through 6 days with the greatest of ease. Dad even decided to sleep in the open for most of the trip. He had just as much fun as he did with RMRT all those years ago.
Everything was provided for us -- tent, sleeping bag (never got cold at all!), pillow, cushioned sleeping mats, PFDs (life jacksts), wetsuit, and wetsuit gloves and socks just in case. The list goes on! The food was fresh, amazing, and beyond wonderful. One of my brother's girls had her 15th birthday while we were on the river, and the guides made a birthday cake for her, decorated with petals from wild roses. She felt so special, and it was all because of the guides.
I cannot begin to say enough good things about the guides at RMRT. Their professionalism is incomparable, and they are personable, intelligent, fun-loving people. Every need was met so that we as guests could enjoy every facet of wonder that the Middle Fork has to offer. Our guides led a variety of hikes and took turns in the paddle boat each day, guiding the guests who wished to experience the exhiliration of paddling. My 11 year-old paddled every day but one, and he loved it.
The teenagers had a great time, and there were several other children in our group. They all had fun together, and the adults got time to themselves. One of our guides even threw a baseball with my children one evening -- Didn't expect gloves and balls on the trip, but it was a great surprise for them!
It is quite evident that Dave and Sheila Mills love what they do and are dedicated to selecting guides that replicate that. The guides love what they do, and it is obvious.
I will be returning to the Middle Fork this summer, solo! Rocky Mountain River Tours is the best and is the choice you want to make.
