We took the private jeep tour with our family of 5 up to a huge clearing where the kids got out to run around and we enjoyed the views. This was definitely not a thrill tour (which we didn't want) but the views were great. If you want to get right into and up the mountain and do not want to drive yourself this is the way to go. We were picked up at our hotel and returned to the hotel exactly on schedule. He even brought us right through some of the smaller towns off the eaten path. There was water and snacks provided when we stopped (only there were so many mosquitos it was hard to hang out there long so bring bug spray!) My youngest is 3 and we put the car seat in the jeep and it was great for him. If you want a reliable, knowledgeable tour guide these are your people!

Guide, Christian, was very knowledgeable, fun to be with, and an excellent guide. I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend a day! The lunch provided was very good. I highly recommend this rafting tour for white water rafting.

I ran the Gore Canyon trip with Timberline Tours last week. It was awesome!!!!!! I highly recommend Timberline for anyone in the Vail area, they are the best. I've been on trips in the past with other rafting companies and Timberline blows them out of the water, pun intended.

The Gore Canyon trip was easily the best trip I've ever been on, a definite must for any experienced rafter. This is by no means an easy trip. I would not recommend it for anyone who hasn't been rafting before.

Our guide was Mongo. He is the captain of the U.S. Rafting Team, sooooo needless to say he was kind of good. You won't get experience like that from any other rafting company.

Thanks Mongo and the Timberline team. I hope to raft with you guys again in the future.

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.

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.
