“Had Fun With Family!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

It was just our 4 kids ranging from 15-7, my husband and I, and our guide Jeremy. No one fell out of the boat, we had fun in the rapids, and the lunch was very nice (we weren't sure quite what to expect). The weather became quite windy and our boat was actually going back up the river, but our guide was funny, kept the kids entertained, and gave us a good workout at the end. I would recommend this trip to anyone with family. We were looking for some fun in the water while being safe, and this was definitely it.

“Great Outfit”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

Lauren & Otto have a great outfit going out there on the river. They always are so friendly and helpful while accommodating so many people's different needs on the river. We took my girlfriend's parents out to experience Duckies on the river and they had a blast. Top notch group and several great options on the river from which to choose. Thanks!

“Amazing time”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

Our tour was fairly mild with little or no rapids because of the low water level of the river. This didn't stop our guide from making the most out of it with stories and jokes. Our guide, Jeremy, was also very knowledgeable and answered any questions put forth. We also saw some amazing scenery and wildlife. A bald eagle grabbed a fish out of the river right in front of us and flew up to a tree to eat. Wow. Everyone at the raft shack was friendly & helpful and for a romping good time, they keep a good collection of tennis balls so you can play with the shop dog, Ruby. We will probably go again next few year and hope the water level is higher.

“Great tour and prices”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

Beautiful scenery and a very entertaining guide made for a great tour down the Upper Colorado. The prices can't be beat and I couldn't imagine a better first time on a raft with two kids, ages 8 and 10. The rapids were mild and didn't scare the kids, but were still fun and we got wet on a few of them. If I had more time I would go back and try the solo inflatable kayak and travel further down the river...|Maybe next year!!!

“Worth It”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

After the scenic drive along Route 1 Trough Road, you come to a place for your Colorado river adventure. Worth the trip and the pricing is great. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable
