Whitewater rafting was one the the best times I have ever had.

Fantastic experience. I did the Shoshone Rapids option on the Colorado River. The first 20 minutes has some good excitement with level 3 to maybe 4 rapids. They provide a great... read more

Fantastic experience. I did the Shoshone Rapids option on the Colorado River. The first 20 minutes has some good excitement with level 3 to maybe 4 rapids. They provide a great balance of excitement and a high feeling of safety. Mandatory life vests throughout and helmets in the first higher level section. Had Corrine (sp) as our guide and I... More

Never ridden an ATV before, went with my 17 year old son, we both drove. Our guide Chris explained things very well. The ATV was very simple to operate. We had a blast. Lucked out with a beautiful sunny day so the views were spectacular. Also, the after ride lunch we had at Nova was really good.

Our guide, Steve was the best!!! There were 7 kids on the trip and myself.. He was so patient and good with the kids, giving little fun facts throughout the day and letting the kids have hands-on rafting experience! Very cool When he found out we did not have to be to the camp until later in the afternoon, he... More

River Guide Jessica was awesome. Fun, funny, talkative in a good way, experienced, lovin life, authentic, and genuinely interested in making sure the guests have a good... More

We just returned from a trip off road 4 wheeling. It rained however we still had fun. They provided rain gear, helmets and goggles. The trip included lunch which was very good. Nice facility. Nice equipment. The only negative comment I have is the guide was not very friendly and we passed by several ruins from something to do with... More

Had a blast ATVing on the same roads we'd snowmobiled on New Year's Eve 2013 with NOVA Guides. Great staff, well-maintained vehicles, delicious food - NOVA Guides has year-round fun and adventure. Thanks for an amazing time! Sarah Ray Pickard

We stayed in Beaver Creek at St. James Place and the concierge recommended Nova Guides. We booked a Jeep Tour and were lucky enough to get Chuck (aka Charlie). It was only three of us (three gals from Kansas City) so it was basically our own private jeep tour. We experienced all seasons. It was a beautiful tour and we... More

Our shuttle bus driver Eileen...picked us on time and gave us answers to any questions. She also helped with pictures before, during (as the rapids were to strong... More

Awesome adventure!!! We did the Triple Wammy on the Colorado River which takes 3 runs over the rapids from Shoshone to Grizzly Creek. 4 stretches of Class 3+ Rapids. Each run takes about 12 minutes. Guide Anna was good and kept us safe. Would do it again. It is a workout you will be tired.
