“" Can we do it again?"”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We decided to take a 5 day vacation to Colorado and experience all that this wonderful state has to offer.Timberline tours was a HUGE part of that ,we paddled a section of the Colorado River with Christian as our guide,he gave us great instruction and confidence to get through the class 3 rapids and after taking the boats out of the river we asked,"can we do it again?"
It was SO much fun and the canyon and scenery was breathtaking!
Thank-you Timberline for making our trip to Colorado so memorable.

“Fun and Informative Jeep Adventure”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We (3 couples) enjoyed a fabulous day with Jey trekking around Vail and Beaver Creek on a custom trip. We described what we were looking for and Jey delivered. He offered numerous options throughout the day. We enjoyed a delicious lunch with great views of Vail below. While always safe, the trip includes some thrills and plenty of great scenery From the time Jey picked us up at our hotel at 9:00am to our 4:00pm return, we had a great day with Jey. Wish I could do it again tomorrow.

“My first White Water Raft trip - and so far the best”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

I was a little nervous about white water rafting. Timberline tours isn't rated the best for no reason. What a great trip! Our guides, Kristy and Rocky, made us feel comfortable with rafting and safe at all times. Plus, they made even the flat water interesting by telling interesting historical stories, giving us background information, and slipping in a few jokes here and there. I was thrilled to be able to take a quick swim in the Colorado river. The trip ended with a cook-out, which was a great way to sit back with our new friends and rehash the trip highlights. All in all, a really great experience and worth every penny. Can't wait to try a more challenging level the next time.

“Backcountry Jeep Experience”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We had the most fantastic experience on our 4-hour jeep tour of the Colorado mountains with our expert guide, Jey. I wanted to give my girlfriend a true, backcountry wilderness experience, since she had never been to Colorado before. We were both thrilled with our experience. Jey was not only a gracious host & guide, but his knowledge of the flora, fauna, geography, & geology of the area was a 10+. We felt that we were given a private guided tour by a college professor- what a treat! Jey stopped frequently to point out various flowers, wild berries, mushrooms, trees, rock formations, & would give us a thorough explanation at each stop. What an education! Oh- he also had snacks & beverages for us during our trip. This is a "must do" trip!!!

“Awesome trip”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Our group had so much fun. We had both repeat and new rafters on our trip and we all had a great time. Our guide Greg, was fantastic, he made it fun but also made us feel safe the whole time. The numbers trip was great and we highly recommend this tour company. We were initially nervous about doing the Class IV rapids but with Greg it was challenging and fun. It was a great value and everything was included. Beautiful scenic views on the way from Vail to Granite.
