Very professional and experienced staff. With it being a smaller company, they not only customized our experience (or lack or experience on the raft), but gave us time on two rivers, while avoiding the large crowds of nearby mass rafting companies. We went with 4 kids, none of whom had ever rafted, and not only did they love the experience... More

Adding a kayak to your trip is a smart move, especially with teenagers! Getting to trade in and out with others on the raft makes it fun, and entertaining for everyone. Thank You for your business and most of all for your candid comments. More

Best rafting experience ever! Rafting with “Up Tha Creek Expeditions” was like rafting with long time friends. No long lines, no wasted time, no big yellow bus. I chose “Up Tha Creek Expeditions” on June 21, 2014 because they are a smaller rafting company and offer rafting on Slaughterhouse Falls on the Roaring Fork River and rafting on the Crystal... More

Ron I had a blast with your family. You all enjoying the trips so much to keep coming back each day. Then ending up rafting with us three days in a row on two rivers… well that just made my season. I hope you all keep on rafting and enjoying life the way you do, because it rubs off on... More

About 2 years ago my husband and I took a rafting trip down clear creek river in Idaho springs. We used a large rafting company because we did not know otherwise. We overpaid, it took forever to get started, and because we were in such a large group, it didn't seem personal at all. We were required to wear a... More

Your welcome. Sorry you didn't like your Clear Creek experience. Next time you want to do something closer to Denver try the Upper Colorado River. We run Gore Canyon, and Little Gore Canyon with different options! Thank You for your business and most of all for your candid comments. More

Our first rafting trip with our 9, 7 and 5 year olds was a huge success thanks to Ryan, Molly and Steve. We were very concerned about the safety of the water this time of year. Not only did Ryan very professionally reassure us that it was safe, he kayaked along side of our raft the entire way just to... More

When we have concerned parents we do our very best to assure your families safety. I was happy to kayak along side your raft, though it wasn't necessary, I knew it would ease your mind. I would do it again if you asked! Thank You for your business and most of all for your candid comments. More

Had a blast again. Last year the river level was low so we enjoyed the lower end of the river. This year the snow pack was good so we were taken further up river and got to enjoy more rapids and great knowledgeable rafting guides. We will definitely be back with them if we come back next year. Thank you... More

Rafting with Molly and Ryan was fantastic. We are a local family and have been rafting several times with different companies. These guys were the best by far. Ryan guided and kept the trip, which was on high water, safe, fun, and educational! The best part was it was private and personal. We were the only ones in our boat,... More

We hooked up with Ryan for a very enjoyable afternoon on the Roaring Forks and Colorado rivers in class 2-3 waters. This was exactly what we were looking for and Ryan made sure that we had a good trip. I would highly recommend Up Tha Creek.

We had a great time with Up Tha Creek. They were very professional and everything was better than promised. Our group consisted of four kids ages ranging from 4-12 plus six adults. Up Tha Creek accomodated everyones wishes of using rafts, double kayaks and single kayaks so everyone was happy and we were still able to raft as a group.... More

I was able to join up with some friends and raft Gore Canyon with Up Tha Creek. The trip was phenomenal itself and our guide, Ryan, made it even better. He was very safety oriented and remained calm even when the thrill was overwhelming. If you are looking for class IV and V rafting, this is the company to go... More

There aren't many people I would feel comfortable with going through Gore Canyons class 5 rapids, but I felt completely comfortable the whole way through.. We took perfect lines and our guide, Ryan, knew exactly what to do in every situation.. Overall it was an incredible trip and I highly recommend using Up Tha Creek..
