Our guide Paul was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was our first rafting trip and it was a great experience. Highly recommend this mom and pop rafting company. Prices are better than any other company and the 2.5 hour tour was perfect. We will be back to see Paul and his dog Lucy.

We just returned from a terrific half-day rafting trip on the Colorado River. Paul, our guide, was helpful, knowledgeable and fun. Some of us were in the raft and some of us were in the kayaks/"duckies". Colorado River Guides was recommended by a friend who rafts a lot on the River. Being on the river is so relaxing where there... More

Chelsea is an awesome river rafting guide. She knows so much about the ecology and geology of the area and an added bonus was having her river dog Xena along for the trip (she swam most of the way!) This is a great family-run business.

We had a great time going down the Colorado with Chelsea and Zena. Along with our group in the raft, we had use of a duckie (an inflatable kayak). The duckie was awesome on this trip - highly recommended. Our guide was very personable, helpful and informative.

We did the saddles and paddles trip. It was fantastic. We have a 13 year old and 10 year old that had done some moderate riding in the Texas hill country in the past. Our guide on the ride, Tim, did a great job. The scenery on the 2.5 hour ride was fantastic. When the ride finished we sat down... More

I rarely take the time to write these reviews, but our experience with this company was excellent. We arranged for a morning horseback ride and rafted the Colorado River in the afternoon. The guides for our horseback ride, Tim and Cody, were great with our kids and were very knowledgeable. Once down from the mountain, we had a picnic lunch... More

Everything was great! Chelsea, our guide was very informative & laid back. Our 8 year old daughter & 5 year old son took turns riding along with dad in a "duckie" while I relaxed in the large raft & enjoyed the beautiful views!! Great price, excellent service! Will definitely book with Colorado River Guides when we vacation in Steamboat Springs... More

Paul was great! We took a 3 hour rafting trip down the river - Paul told lots of stories, asked us a lot about us, was great with the kids, and we all felt very safe with him guiding us. Wasn't expensive at all compared to other companies in the area, but the equipment was in great condition and since... More

There were several other companies offering white water rafting and the prices were all over the board. When I found this company, I initially eliminated them because their price was too low compared to the other options. I thought maybe they go down a different river or it's just a low budget rafting trip. I later called them and found... More

The trip was perfect! Mostly because of our wonderful guide, Bill, who really helped with the children on the trip (and us old people). He helped haul them in and out of the water - when they were able to jump in and cool off in the slower parts of the trip. He gave us all great instructions for the... More
