The 1/2 day raft trip was a lot of fun. They recently moved from Creede to South Fork but some of the river guides stayed on. The water was low so it wasn't as good as it could of been but still an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.

We actually took our trip in July of 2008 while my Dad owned a home in Creede. It was the highlight of our trip because we were so blessed to have met Greg, THE mountain man himself.

We wanted to expose our daughter who is 3 to rafting and this float trip was good for her. Definitely no rapids or excitement...but nice people and a good experience!

Had a great time on a 1/2 day rafting trip in early July. The staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and they supplied everything needed. I definitely recommend the booties for the trip because the water is cold! Our guide Zac kept us entertained with stories and facts about the area during our ride as he paddled and guided us...

Spent three hours kayaking down the Rio Grande and it was exhilarating. it is about a 12 mile journey down the river, depending on where they start. Truly a great way to see the river and the scenery.

Mountain Man Tours is located right in downtown Creede and, as they will tell you, they are the only guided raft tours in the area and also serve as the "rescue" crew for the river.

Came to Creede in 2008 and stayed until 09. The owner Ryan personally took myself and my family on a guided tour of the Rio Grand. I'm hooked!!!! GREAT JOB MOUNTAIN MAN!!!!
