My wife and I went rafting with some friends this summer and had a fantastic time. We had been before but this was by far the best trip. Our guide was Casey. He was super fun to raft with and made the trip an adventure. He had a great sense of humor and knowledge of the river. While we had... More

The entire experience was amazingly fun and relaxed. I went in a nervous mom of 3 kids as a family and left feeling like we accomplished something awesome as a team. Our guide was great the entire time! A must do!

We had a group of 22 family members, with a lot of us as first time rafters. On the bus ride to the river, my immediate family got talking to Killian - a sociable, knowledgeable guy - we knew we wanted to be in his raft! What a blast?!! Killian was very informative and patient, I felt confident he knew... More

Look at the videos on the website. That is really what this is like. You also will be doing a lot of work and if your team is not strong enough or coordinated enough, you will hit rocks, get stuck and get dumped. If you are looking for a little drift down the river, not happening. This is a wild... More

Our early June all day trip down the Poudre with Josh, Brian and Nate was a blast! Would definitely go back to MWD if we're in the area and looking to go rafting. Thanks, guys!

This was my first rafting experince, and I must say it was fun. At first I was thinking to myself wow, is this it? Well, we were stuck and high-siding, but we were able to take control of the raft. This was actually the funniest part of the trip. Don't ask me why, but I enjoy the thrill. Otherwise, this... More

A large group of us booked a three boat deal. Everyone went down stream with a total of 7 boats. Killian and the other guides did a splendid job of keeping everyone together while allowing us to have a blast ! Everyone's posts are spot on - the establishment is pretty neat - they have a great place for the... More

Had the chance to take some out of town friends out to MWD for a late season run on the Poudre. Was a beautiful day and we had a great guide - Craig - that took us on a perfect ride. MWD has great service to get the trip setup correctly and their guides are well trained, fun and professional.... More

This was our first whitewater experience and so glad that we did it! It was a great way to begin our Colorado vacation! Our guide was Tracy, and she kept us entertained, while teaching and guiding us down the river. I don't think we hit one rock! The pictures and video they took are fantastic and great keepsakes. I highly... More

There are many great benefits of Mountain Whitewater descents! The price is cheaper than places in the Midwest, our tour guide, Casey, was very experienced and knowledgeable, and there are many amenities such as purchasing snacks, and great photos of the group rafting down the river. Safety is also a high priority for Mountain Whitewater Descents which is important! Thanks... More
