This was one of the highlights of our month-long road trip. We were coming to the end, and tired, but this pepped us up. Our guide, Ben, was a blast. It was a great day and the river was gorgeous. We're considering doing a long weekend road trip to go back again. Don't miss! My date is off - we... More

My family of 5 visited Colorado this past summer and decided to take the literal "plunge" and go on our first white water rafting experience. The kids are 12,11 and 10 and this was a perfect experience for their first time. Josh was our guide and he was a lot of fun while still making sure we were informed and... More

The white water raft trip was a fun time for me and my kids last year. The Poudre River was still high because of the flooding, but still felt safe to go. I think we did the trip that was just short of the all day trip, still managing to hit the higher classes of rapids that made the experience... More

Great time and water conditions. Got some extras like my daughter got to ride the bull up front. The guide was truly entertaining. I am an avid white water adventurer and loved every minute.

We were guided over to Mountain Whitewater from our lodging owners. It was fantastic. Level 4 was exciting and thrilling. Staff went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great time. Always felt safe and yet had quite the run. Do This!!! We will be!

We went into MWD with the idea of booking a trip for later in the week. We asked about options, and the clerk said, "How about leaving in an hour? We can call in a river guide now and you'll be set." We decided to take his suggestion and booked there and then. The pre-rafting prep was informative and entertaining.... More

So happy we chose MWD for our first adventure in river rafting. We were able to go on 4 class 4 rapids! They staff was great and we had a fantastic time and the price was very reasonable! Bobby was our guide and he was great. My only complaint, the life jackets smelled a little moldy.

I called all of the river rafting companies I could find near Estes Park, CO. This company was the only one who offered a trip on the one day I could make it. They didn't have anyone else booked for that day, but they told me to go ahead and make a deposit just in case and promised to give... More

We had a great time even though my husband and I fell out in the big rapids. There were lots of people from the other rafts and ropes to grab us right away. My daughter was also hit in the eye with an ore during the spill and got a bruised retina, but all's well. It was an exciting adventure.

I booked a half day trip for four several weeks in advance. I had to cancel one reservation a week before the trip date. They refused to refund the fee for one because they apparently have a two week refund policy. On the day of the trip, our raft was full as were the other three or four rafts on... More
