We took our family of 4 to Glenwood Springs to float the Colorado with GAC. The whole operation is outstanding, they make you feel comfortable, calm some nerves, and set you up for the rafting trip of a lifetime. Our guide, Ray, was phenomenal! He had the perfect combination of expertise, humor, fun, and knowledge about the history of the... More

Our extended family of 18 recently vacationed in Glenwood Springs, CO. (June 23-28, 2015). Last Fall we found Glenwood Adventure Company on the internet. We communicated with Ken, owner, via phone and email. He was wonderful to work with--very patient and helpful in suggesting appropriate activities for our varied age group (2 years old to 72 years). Ken helped to... More

We did a class 2, in our party was a small 11 year old. She sat on the front of the raft and it was for the most part a gentle ride. That said there has been a lot of rain and the river was high so not many Rapids. Instructor was great we had some first time people with... More

Interesting place, lots going on with big staff. Some people were helpful, some figured you didn't need more explanation, which sometimes I felt like I did. Rented bikes for 16 mile bike trip and really enjoyed it. People were pleasant, mostly college aged kids. Price was reasonable and bike trail along the Colorado river excellent! Place stays open until 9pm,... More

Great rafting trip; the guides were also pointing out other interesting things during the rafting trip. Very relaxing stretches of the river and, due to high water, some really fine rapids to run through!

We had an amazing time, rafting, biking, zip lines and rope course. The rafting was the highlight as we had to help with a rescue mission when one of the rafts flipped over. We had a total of 21 family members on 3 rafts and our guides, Lucian, Ben T and Jeremy were amazing at keeping everyone focused on the... More

Our group of four 60 year olds went on a 3 hr Segway tour with Alex as our leader. He was an awesome, patient beginners instructor who quickly became our informed guide of the area. I had always thought Segways looked corny and were for lazy people. Now, I know they are a great way to explore and climb to... More

Rafting was awesome! Our guide, Taylor was very knowledgeable about the river and the history of the area. She was high energy, but very professional. Horseback riding was amazing! The scenery was breath taking and the steak dinner was the best we have her had. Our 12 year old daughter is in love with the river now, and definitely wants... More
