I've had a chance to Raft in some really neat places with world class guides. I was very impressed with Erika and her knowledge of the river. We did a stretch called "The Numbers". She always had us in position and occasionally when things go a little funky( which is so much fun about white water rafting) she kept her... More

Kim was great, we went on a family trip. 4 of us on the upper Colorado. This was a perfect trip for our 6 and 7 year old boys. We were on the river and then stopped for a wonderful lunch (tacos-very good from a local restaurant) and continued a bit further. It was great to stop in the middle... More

I went with a group of friends on a Lakota River Guides rafting trip on Sunday, July 27 that began in the morning and ended with a delicious lunch. Joe, our guide, was great. We plunged right in to some of the most exciting white water, and he had our boat working together as a cohesive unit in no time,... More

Our family of four (14 & 11 yo boys) had a blast with Lakota Guides! The advice we got before booking the trip was perfect & led us to the best trip for our family. Our boys are ready to tackle Numbers even though they aren't old enough yet! Our guide Dane was awesome! Ask for him! Pursue your dreams... More

We stayed in Bachelor Gulch and they sent two guide (MacKenzie and Collins) to pick us up and bring us to their main location. They provided all equipment and safety course. Lakota took us down a Level 3 trip and... More

Four of our family members spent an afternoon with Andrew as our guide on the Arkansas river. We had a great experience with Andrew and everyone that we dealt with at Lakota.

Gorgeous weather for both trips. My family was visiting and we had so much fun on the first trip, we just had to take another one. Our guides, MacKenzie, Kim, Leah and Erika were extremely guest service oriented, professional and fun. They really make the trip by providing excellent service, following all safety measures and getting everyone involved in the... More

Perfect day in class III white water rafting on the Arkansas in Colorado with Lakota tours! Dane, Erica and Tanner were outstanding guides, focused on safety and fun. Ricer bank lunch was hot and excellent, too. Great information about the history of the area, mountains and other outdoor activities. Recommend Lakota without reservation.

My wife and I had a blast with Jeff Kieper leading the group down some rockin" whitewater last week. Because it was class 4/5 we were well instructed on safety issues and also pleased to have Andrew protecting us with his kayak escort. This trip is 13 miles of solid, continuous whitewater, almost double the half day 7 mile Numbers... More
