Very nice ride down the Colorado River through the mild rapids

We had a great time. There were 4 of us and 4 others in the boat. (Maybe a bit crowded). Aaron was our guide and did a great job. He had all the jokes, history and answers. We had... read more

We had a great time. There were 4 of us and 4 others in the boat. (Maybe a bit crowded). Aaron was our guide and did a great job. He had all the jokes, history and answers. We had a very nice deli lunch today with great cookies for dessert. I would recommend this trip for families with little ones... More

The booking process was easy and the guy warned me that the river wasn't as exciting in late July. I appreciated his honesty. Our guide Jeff was fun and full of terrible jokes that made you smile. The family had a great time and would recommend this group to anyone. We plan to come back early next year when the... More

Had a great guide in Brian... of course all the ladies in our party loved his blue eyes.... that was the best part of the trip for them... Very good and informative for the men also.. Very experienced rafter and probably one of the best I've ever been on. Great job Brian and Bucking Rainbow...

These guys are shysters. I have been flyfishing for over 30 years and have booked guides at fly shops all over the U.S., in New Zealand, Canada and Chile. A friend and I booked 3 days of fall fly-fishing with these guys and flew in from the Midwest. We were somewhat flexible on September dates. What the Bucking Rainbow crew... More

Our guide Jeff was awesome. He was easy to talk to, knew lots of history of the area as well as plants and wildlife...we asked lots of questions. Only did 1/2 day but 9 & 10 yr old boys loved it...especially the riding the bull game at the end. Saw Canadian geese and 3 bald eagles. Good easy ride and... More

I called Monday and they convinced me that the Yampa trip would be perfect for our family. Was told to be there at 1 and we would have 1 1/2 hours on the water. We would return around 4. Fortunately we arrived a bit early because they wanted to take off at 1. So we hurried through the paperwork and... More

We went on the white water rafting with our adult daughter - grade 3 continuous white water. I was a little anxious about the safety of this trip but once on the water I had a great time & at no stage did I feel nervous. Excellent guides - it would have been dangerous trying this on your own. Wet... More

Bucking Rainbow has a little bit of everything for everyone. Mostly it's for fishermen, but had lots of other fun things to look at. Took the Whitewater rafting trip and our guides were fantastic. Very good on safety and rules and felt comfortable having them guide us down the fast flowing Yampa River. Would do it again, in a heartbeat,... More
