I brought a group out in September 2014, age range 35-70. The water and rapids were a bit faster than we originally anticipated due to recent heavy rain, but our guides were fantastic and got us through (and kept everyone in the boat!) the two mile stretch. Then it was a beautiful float through the canyon. Nathaniel, Burley and Tanar... More

We booked the 10 mile rafting trip with Lakota Guides in mid-September. Jeremiah was our guide. The trip was a lot of fun, with a handful of exciting rapids (nothing too challenging though) in the beginning and then a scenic and peaceful float after that. Jeremiah was both entertaining and very knowledgable. They also provided a tasty lunch and drinks... More

This was a great way to end our vacation! With enough rapids to make it a little edgy but enough calm to take in the environment. A great balance of adventure and relaxation all in one trip. Finish it off with some pretty witty guides (Jeremiah) and some great food cooked over the grill when you get out, makes for... More

Our family of four went river rafting with Lakota last weekend. The staff was very professional, covering all aspects of safety on the river, including what to do if you have a "negative experience" and fall into the water. Our guide was Leah; she was very fun and full of facts about the river, landscape, and nearby areas. We will... More

We had a great trip with Lakota, down the Colorado river through Glenwood Canyon. The staff were very professional and did a tremendous job making trip fun for everyone. Our raft guide, Gangsta Joe, was great and very entertaining. Nice job Lakota!

Overall a wonderful experience. They are very organized from start to finish. You get to their headquarters in Edwards and get all your gear - wet suits, splash jackets, helmets, life jackets. Then they load you up onto vans for a beautiful drive narrated by a lovely guide/comedian, through Glenwood to get to the Colorado River. You get the safety... More

We booked our white water rafting trip with Lakota River Guides. They picked us up at our hotel. Took us to their site to get the equipment and then took us to the point of entry. The wet suits and jackets were great. It was not cold at all once we had gotten wet. The guides did a great job... More

Booked an eight person half day trip at the last minute. Lakota handled the reservation superbly. They made the entire process rather effortless. The guide, Jess, was fabulous. She managed to combine an extraordinary skill set; cheerful, entertaining, knowledgeable, highly competent and able to convey instructions assertively and clearly without making anyone feel deficient. The experience was as good as... More
