Great rafting trip and guide

Our family had a blast rafting with Shawn as our guide. He was great fun, extremely skilled, and extremely easy on the eyes. Thanks Shawn. Have you texted Kylee yet?

Last minute two of us reserved inflatable duckies (kayaks) instead of rafting. Rafting is so low key in Glenwood Springs and we wanted a more of a challenge. We had hoped to go into a kayak together but it is more expensive than each person renting their own. The rafting folks, kindly fit us in last minute. They were patience... More

Our family was in Vail for a wedding, and we wanted to do some rafting while we were there. A cousin recommended this company, and we couldn't have been happier with our rafting trip. It was just a short drive to Glenwood Springs, and the staff was so friendly and fun! Our guide, Shawn, was an absolute blast! He was... More

Definitely a fan. Everyone at GCR was friendly and knowledgeable. Our guide Otto was way cool - totally engaging and fun. We did the full day trip - lunch was awesome and even though I accidentally hijacked our guide's lemonade he let me back in the boat :) It wasn't too "rapid-y" when we went, but it was August and...

Such a great group of people - from the PFD fittings to the helmet fittings to the safety talk - everything was very professional but still fun. Exciting and beautiful experience - highlight of our Colorado vacation. Shawn was our guide on the rafting trip and he was superb! We will be going again!

Our rafting guide acted like she was scared of her own shadow, she went around all of the good rapids while the other rafts went through them, I didn't feel like I got my money's worth

Spent yesterday with the family at Glenwood Resort. Rafting, zip line, obstacle course and lunch was terrific. The patio is very nicely located and Alley is a great bartender and will take care of all your needs with a smile. Shane and Matt will take care of you on the raft and the zip line. Very efficient operation with a... More

We did the half day Shoshone trip. We had a blast! Our guide was Cody. He was great! I would highly recommend this trip and Glenwood Canyon Rafting and Cody was fantastic. From what I heard from other rafters, all the the guides were great.
