We have done trips with several different companies and have found IWE to be the best. Your highly trained staff is very professional and the safety prep before each trip is so thorough that we feel ready for anything. In fact, we have ‘tripped’ with your crew six times already and would go on any excursion managed by your company, anytime.Kathy & Allen Bell
Your staff consists of the most professional raft guides we deal with. We just wanted to thank you for taking a personal interest and creating the safest, most enjoyable trips possible. The students are always raving about the hike behind Moul Falls, the delicious lunch, and the amazing rapids of courseAdventure Treks, Flat Rock, NC
Catch-A-Wave was wonderful & we can’t wait to do it again! Mclean Family
Great ride! The waterfall was a great addition - great staff, thanks for an epic afternoon! 2 bears, 2 snakes, 2 bald eagles & butterflies, who could ask for more?!!Tracy & Dwayne - Calgary, AB
We thoroughly enjoyed it and were very impressed with your company and the people you employ (lunch was great too!) I hope to be back and I would certainly give IWE a five star rating to anybody else. - June 2014Lisa
First time, but definitely not the last! Amy & Cody
Doug, We just wanted to drop you a line and tell you we missed being able to raft with IWE down the Clearwater River this Covid cursed year. Your decision to not operate because the restrictions put your clients safety in jeopardy was tough but so much who you are. We have done many whitewater trips, in Canada and away and yours is the only one we felt completely prepared us for every scenario before we set off. Your guides are superb, friendly and highly trained. Our favorite trip, Guaranteed Addiction (7 times!) can't be beat for excitement and thrills. Then the 5 day trip down the Chilcotin with you and your crew was such a great one we did it twice. When you reopen we will be on your doorstep, with as many family members we can bring along. Please post this in your reviews for us if you can. Thanks and see you next year!Allen and Kathy Bell
