“First Experience - Great Time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

The entire experience from Up Tha Creek Expeditions was great. We were coming from Redstone, CO and parked in the Brush Creek Intercept and the guides were there waiting for us. It was perfect that there were three of us and we decided to do the Slaughterhouse Falls, Class IV rafting trip.

It was my first time rafting, but the guides were more than helpful. They provide all the equipment and taught us everything. The entire experience was amazing and our guide for the trip guided us perfectly with no one falling out. It was definitely a good workout and I would recommend Slaughterhouse Falls who wants an amazing trip.

“Fun Class 3 Rafting Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

Three of us enjoyed a 2-hour class 3 rafting trip on Roaring Fork River. Guide/owner Molly Ballensky explained procedures clearly and made our trip a delight. The river was very scenic and had the right amount of rapids for me.

“Great experience with Up Tha Creek!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

We did Slaughterhouse Falls with Up Tha Creek. They provided everything, even wetsuits and splash jackets--all we had to do was show up. The guides were competent, professional, and made our run very enjoyable. All this for a very good price. I'll definitely look them up again when I am in Glenwood Springs.

“Purfect fun for all!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2011

Our family of 4 (two adults and two kids 9 and12) had an absolutely wonderful time. Since we hadn't been white water rafting before we were a bit nervous to say the least. Molly took us on a ride that was perfect! Just the right balance of excitement. We did alot of things like the Advenure Park and Caverns and a bike ride from Vail to Avon and everyone thought that the trip on the river was the BEST! Unfortunately we saved white water rafting for our last day other wise we would have gone again. My daughter wants to be a white water rafter guide when she grows up!

“Great experience, lots of fun!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2011

This was my second experience with Up tha Creek Expeditions. I can't say enough about the guides and supporting staff. Everything was on time, organized and very professional. They provided us with plenty of gear to stay comfortable in the freezing spring waters of the upper roaring fork. The water was pretty high but our guide was very experienced and allowed us to have a great time and stay safe. I highly recommend them!!!
