I signed up to go horseback riding, whitewater rafting, and ATV driving. 1) Horseback riding - I was scared to death! I've never been on a horse before so the whole time I felt like I was having one continuous heart attack. My horse was a little feisty at times but I lived. I would suggest you opt for the... More

Rented bicycles and got dropped off to bike back to Glenwood. Despite booking 5 days in advance, they failed to tell me the route (Glenwood Canyon) I wanted to take (and paid for) was closed and they would drop me off at another trail (one that you couldn't hike to hanging lake - a site we really wanted to see)....

Kerry took us on the Segways to the top of Red Mountain, and we couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable or pleasant guide! From the familiarization session in the parking lot to the help, tips, and stories on the entire trip up and back down, we all felt very comfortable and well cared for. I would highly recommend this... More

The Adventure Company drove my friend and I out so we could ride back into town on the bicycle trail using their bikes. I hadn't been on a bicycle in almost 30 years but you truly don't forget and it was a wonderful experience. My friend's bike broke along the way and they immediately hopped in the van and brought...

Ken and his team are outstanding. We went paragliding, rafting and biking. They made sure we were outfitted and had a good time. The weather was cold on our rafting day so the guides went a different route and kept our adrenaline going with all the rapids. The paragliding was the most fun. It's a must do. The biking was...

We went out with Ryan today and he was so much fun!! It was just my boyfriend, me, and a family of four with small children. Ryan rode at an appropriate speed the whole time to allow us adults to go a bit faster, and we occasionally waited for the family so they could go their own speed as well.... More

The half day trip was amazing, especially in the fall with the changing of leaves. The views were spectacular. Our guide Ryan was exceptionally knowledgable about the local history and sites. We had a very good time exploring the trails of Bair Ranch! Would highly recommend this adventure to others, and would recommend Ryan as a guide!

What a great tour! Our guide, Ryan, made sure we had ample time to enjoy all of the sites available. We were lucky enough to be the only couple on the tour and it went on regardless. Because of that, we were spoiled and had extra attention from Ryan who answered all of our questions and shared some great stories.... More

Paragliding was the best part of the weekend in Glenwood Springs. The staff was awesome and the sights were priceless. Highly recommended! Can't wait to do it again myself!
