We loved our experience!! The guides, Mike and Andrew were awesome and made the experience very enjoyable and were great working with 3 of us that had never been white water rafting. Our group would highly recommend them!! All the people that worked there were great and we loved the vibe and ambiance!! Thank you for a great time!!

Beautiful day on the river with Mike, a great guide and overall nice person. Perfect sunny weather with just the right gear to stay warm. We appreciated the fleece, wet suits, and splash jackets. Neat hippyish bar/gaming area at the main location. We were impressed with the amenities and friendliness of the staff.

We were the first FULL DAY tour of 2015 and rafted the upper/lower Poudre. Melissa was our guide & she made it exciting and FUN!! MWR provided the wet suits (sm fee) and lunch. Altho the temps were very chilly, we were quite comfortable. I was nervous at first but had the BEST TIME EVER! If I went again, I... More

Casey was our guide. We were in a group of 6. They provide all your needs to keep you warm. It was 37 when we went down the Poudre. Our guide was SO much fun and trustworthy! He had us spinning down the river because he trusted our group. I can't wait to go again!

We had a great time, even though the weather was cold and rainy. Melissa and Nathan took good care of us with wet suits and booties (small extra $$, well worth it) and tips on how to keep warm. Melissa is a great guide and lots of fun, We did a lot of high fives as we accomplished the challenging... More

Mountain Whitewater Descents is the best rafting experience you will ever have! Everyone there is fun, knowledgeable, and friendly! You will not have a better time anywhere than you will with these guys! My family and friends go rafting with them a couple times each year. It's a blast and I can't recommend them enough!!!!!

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
