We found Lakota via the recommendation of our conf. hotel as well as TripAdvisor. We had a very tight timeline to accomplish rafting and mountain reception in a... More

We had a group of 12 that took this trip the night after a wedding. It was a lot of fun and the guides worked hard to keep us entertained. If the water level is not high, you are able to use inflatable kayaks, known as duckies, after the first half of the trip. They even have tandem duckies that... More

The guides are awesome. Knowledgable and funny, they really made for a memorable experience. The pictures are on the expensive side however.

Saw some interesting scenery that you don't normally get to see since this was a private ranch. Great guide, very friendly and seem knowledgeable. My only complaint was that we were not able to go into the... More

My sister and I were aiming at going rafting in some pretty challenging waters since both of us like to push our limits. Since we had not rafted in almost 10 years, everyone who we spoke to said Class II/III (Shoshone) would be best for us. However, the waters were super easy to navigate, and didn't really pose a challenge.... More

We did the 3 hour jeep tour. Brian was our driver-guide. He was an excellent driver and guide. Very knowledgeable of the area and very personable. We had a great time and saw places we never would have. If you have the opportunity to do this tour I would highly recommend it!!!

Went on a 2 mile rafting trip on Colorado River with level 2 to 3 rapids, mostly in the beginning. Our guide, Austin (I'm supposed to tell all he has great hair) made the trip fun and informative. He's used to bigger waves and more technical trips but never let on that he was probably a little bored. He tried... More

we just rafted with them on several occasions and it was always fun.The guides are friendly and entertaining. Just one negative, the lunch served at the end of the run is quite lame.
