LOOK NO FURTHER !!! Colorado Rafting Company was incredible! We did the 3/4 day which included a delicious lunch. This was my first rafting experience and Tanner was the best guide. I was a bit nervous but his ridiculous hippie jokes kept me at ease the entire time. Collin, the other guide, was hysterical too. Overall such a FUN day!!! I would 100% plan another experience with this company everything was awesome – Highly recommend!!!

This was the best rafting trip I have ever been on. The guides knew everything, were extremely safe and also a ton of fun. The overnight was the best part and brought the experience to the next level. Our camp was set up and amenities were top notch! I definitely recommend these guys and thanks Colorado Rafting Company, see you next year!

Great first time rafting experience. Took my 10, 13, and 16 year old and everyone had a blast. Colorado Rafting Company was professional from my first stop in their office, to a promptly returned phone call, to the entire trip experience. All guides were not only knowledgeable and excellent on the river but they were also very personable. Tammy guided our raft and did great. She made us feel comfortable and was also full of information about the wildlife and environment along the river. Thanks Colorado Rafting Company for a great experience. You know how to do customer service!
