Having read most of the comments posted I can honestly say that the A-1 Wildwater Company and our guide John were exceptional. They went out of their way to accommodate our tight schedule and provided an experience that my family will never forget. The trip to the put in spot was scenic and short (about 1/2-3/4 hour). Great rapids and... More

We had multiple generations excited to raft in August. The guides were patient and knowledgeable and we had a great time. A-1 was organized and professional and fun. After rafting you can purchase photos on a disc so you are able to share. Highly recommend this tour group!

The intro was daunting, but overall a fun safe ride. We had a great navigator who avoided too much bumpiness given we had a total of 9 people in the raft and two young children (8&9) tucked in the middle of the boat.

My sister took me rafting with my brother for my 37th birthday. A-1 guides were really great at creating a fun atmosphere with intelligent and safe information along with great jokes, stories, and other entertaining antics. They were very organized and we all had a wild ride running the Poudre. Great rapids and it even rained on us a little... More

Our family of 14 rafted on June 27 -- we had five thrill-seekers who chose the higher level trip, and nine "we're-a-little-nervous-so-let's-go-on-the-next-level-down" rafters, which included children and grandma and grandpa! By all accounts, both trips were fabulous. The guides -- Eric for the bigger boat, and Josh and "Mad Dog" for the smaller one -- provided great instruction and a... More

Our family of 6 rafted on July 4, 2014. The water was higher than normal at this time of year, which made for a fun trip. The river was II, III and IV rapids. Our guide, David, was very skilled, had more than 8,000 miles of rafting history, and was pleasant and competent. He would let us know what was... More

Made a "reservation" using the online form on the website. Per the text you are not confirmed until they contact you. Unfortunately you have no idea when that is going to happen. I made a reservations two days ahead and hadn't heard a word from them. Called two hours before my sons and I needed to be in Ft. Collins.... More

I enjoy taking my kids and their friends rafting once a year and this year we chose A-1 WR--we will not be back. While the activity was itself fun, the guide made it uncomfortable. My boys and I did not appreciate the lack of professionalism and his insulting mannerism. I raised my kids to be polite but I know it... More

I travel quite a lot and I rarely give out bad reviews, but A-1 is the worst experience I've ever had with a tour company. Imagine going down an awesome river and having a great time when a big rapid approaches. Instead of going down the rapid, we were the only group to get out of the river while everyone... More
