We had an amazing trip down the river. My husband and I have only been rafting once before, but with great instructions from our guide Abel, we managed to make it all the way without "swimming". Would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for fantastic organisation. All equipment is provided. We chose to wear our own sandals and clothes... More

We went at the end of September during off season. Other companies were already closed - so glad we found Raft Masters. It was great having the river to ourselves. Beautiful views and scenery. The guide was patient, professional and fun.They include all the gear you could possibly need. One of the best experiences we had while in Colorado.

Took the wife on a jeep tour with Allen today. Nice chill in the air at the start and we were given a excellent tour of the mountain and gold mine areas of Victor and Cripple Creek. Allen was very informative about the history, local lore, wildlife / plant life. The lunch in Victor was very good. The ride back... More

It was our first time rafting we had a six year old and all through our experience all he kept saying was "This is the best day ever" We're ready to take on a tougher ride with Raft Masters! Thank you for a great experience.... More
