My husband and I are experienced river runners, but this was the first experience for our six and eight-year-old girls (each about 50lbs). We really wanted them to experience whitewater on a short trip and from the height of a raft before we attempted to take them on our multi-day kayak trips. I was slightly concerned as more than one... More

The Glenwood Cayon Rafting Inc. staff was amazing! Unfortunately four people had to cancel in our group, but Pat was so accommodating. They had great service from the very beginning! The price was very reasonable for the half day trip. Our guide, Niko was awesome! He knew exactly what he was doing, it was very comforting to know we were... More

Great rafting experience. Took all my kids (little boys too 5yo) and did class III rapids. The price was about half of everywhere else I called. Garret out guide was so good to my boys. We had a blast! Thanks for the memory.

We enjoyed a great afternoon rafting down the Colorado River with Glenwood Canyon Rafting. The check in staff was friendly and efficient. We had 12 family members, ages 8-76, and they accommodated all of us in 2 rafts. Our guide, Calvin, was fantastic- naturalist, guide, and a comedian rolled into one. Even the teenagers loved it! We would highly recommend... More

I cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Glenwood Canyon Rafting! Everything was amazing, start to finish. The BBQ lunch they serve is top-notch (try the pulled pork), the check-in staff is friendly and helpful, and our rafting guide was fantastic--very skilled and knowledgeable about the area. My husband and I and our two kids (8 & 10 years... More

Had a great time with my oldest daughter rafting down the Colorado River. We did the afternoon trip and the class 3 and 4 rapids was a great treat. Our Guide, Mac, was a great guy who gave not only good direction, but information about the area. Would definitely like to do this again with this company.

Excellent experience. We had 10 people with 5 of them under 8. Ken was our guide and was very safe with our kids and made it really fun. Top notch facility.

I was terrified out of my mind--my family all wanted to go white water rafting. I had gone as a teenager but my husband had never been. We ended up a group of 7 on our raft, plus our amazing guide Connor. We had the best time!!! The best time of year to do this is in June, so plan... More

Rafted Memorial Day weekend 2013. Four adults, 2 kids. 6 year old and 8 year old. Extremely well organized and it was clear our safety was their #1 concern. Our guide was wonderful and shared lots of stories about the local area. The equipment was clean and it was nice to be fitted in splash suits and not the wet... More
