Six of us went together and did the milder rafting trip since we were rookies. We had a total blast and Dave, our guide, was an absolute pro. Our biggest complaint was that it was... read more

Reservation was handled well. They called me to confirm but also directed me to a more appropriate outing for my family of four. They were right. At the main office, the safety discussion was well-done, as was the distribution of life jackets and helmets. After an orderly boarding, the bus began the thirty-minute trek to the drop-off point. We met... More

My parents who are in their 70's and my husband and I went on the wild and scenic trip, or something similar to that name. We enjoyed the white water trip, very safe, very fun. This trip would be fun at almost any age, not just a kid thing. The staff has a lot energy, they dressed for the Prom... More

Six of us went together and did the milder rafting trip since we were rookies. We had a total blast and Dave, our guide, was an absolute pro. Our biggest complaint was that it was too short. Do a full day trip. We could also have done a little wilder trip but it still had thrills. This company was professional... More

The check-in process was very disorganized - everything from the people behind the desk to those delivering the initial safety talks all seemed to be operating in a vacuum. They didn't communicate well with each other, and that continued on the river. They seemed uncertain about who should go first or last and how they would help each other if... More

Our family recently used A1 Rafting company to enjoy a trip down the Poudre river for the crowning touch to our trip to the Rocky Mountain National Park area. Our party was split between two boats to travel the family friendly half day river raft tour. My family was in one raft with one of the grandparents and my husband's... More

Let's face it, for first time rafters, driving along the Poudre River to our put-in point and seeing the roiling river is nerve-racking. Like anticipating a new roller coaster. Me and my wife and 20-something kids and CSU nephew filled a raft with Michael as our guide, and we never looked back. Super-fun, so much fun. We just loved it.... More

If you love outdoors adventures, this is a place for you. The incredible conection with nature can not compare to anything. You can book from a relaxing experienced to an adventurous one, the one that gets your adrenaline going. I suggest you make reservation to go in large groups or a more intimate group of four ( family or two... More

We took the "Wild and Scenic" trip with two teens, 17 and 15. We were all first time rafters and I must admit were a little worried about the trip being too much for us. It was perfect! It was just the right amount of waves with some breaks. As some of the other reviewers stated, the guides did goof... More
