We loved the the first rafting on the lower fork, but our youngest asked for MORE rapids and splashes! So we booked another trip on the upper fork before we went back home. We appreciate small businesses and being treated special by the company! Highly recommend Up the Creek Rafting!

It was our first trip to Colorado as a family and a "bucket list" item was to white water raft. Because of our children, ages 9 & 11, we selected a beginner trip, and couldn't have been happier! Our guide was terrific - knowledgeable, friendly, and not overbearing. The smiles on everyone's faces and the fact our youngest fell asleep... More

My family and I had an awesome time on the river with Stacy as our guide. The water was swift, but we had complete confidence in our guides ability. He is truly a professional. Our 11 year old grandson told us this river trip was the highlight of his visit. Thank you Up the Creek for a great time.

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

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

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.
