Our guide, Mark, was terrific. He blended the right amount of history, knowledge of geology, and kidding around, to make the trip both fun and interesting. He was a good guide to have. The water was a little low, as we were approaching end of the season (Aug 29), and Brown's was closed down due to low water. As a... More

Did I mention that I loved this??? My husband, 14 y/o daughter and I did the Shoshone trip in late August. We were all, pretty much, first timers. We were picked up from our resort in Beaver Creek in the am and delivered to the tour. We were geared up and then taken on a beautiful trip through Glennwood Canyons... More

My wife, my daughter and I went white water rafting for the first time with Lakota Guides. They made everything easy...picked us up at our hotel, suited us up with all the gear, drove us to the river input, gave us instructions and off we went. Every member of the staff was awesome especially our guide, Brian. Class 3 Rapids... More

My cousin and I rafted today with Joe on the Shoshone trip. We split our trip into two parts - rafting the harder upper part of the trip in a boat with 4 other people, then picking up "Duckies" - inflatable kayaks- at a slow spot to paddle solo (with Joe as our guide from the big boat) the rest...

Next time we will go earlier in the summer so that we have more "white water" for a longer thrill of a ride....but being that we had not done this in awhile, the more mellow ride was perfect!

My wife, myself and two daughters were taken out by Kim. She was an outstanding fun guide. Everything you would want in someone leading the way. She barked her commands with authority! It was a blast, while not the roughest white water rafting I've done it was just perfect for my kids and family. Beautiful ride through gorgeous Colorado. Thank... More

Very efficient and friendly. Kim, Jess, and "Crazy" Pete made us feel welcome. Great safety explanation insured we didn't ever feel scared. Not too challenging--just right for our skill level. Incredible scenery.

Level 3-4 rapids down the Arkansas River. We were 6 people in my group with some minimal rafting experience. Trip was amazing very exhilarating. The guides Pete and Tanner were excellent and made sure we all knew what to do before hitting the rapids. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience

Lakota Guides provided a great adventure that was great fun for our girls weekend. Even though it was at the end of the summer and the river was lower the guide gave us a great whitewater trip. Our guide quickly figured out we were game for thrills and gave us the trip we wanted instead of a "boring" float trip.... More

My wife and I and our two adult daughters took an overnight raft trip on the Arkansas River with Lakota on August 13th and 14th. Our two guides, Erika and Nate, made the trip one of the best experiences we have ever had. We traveled over 30 miles through beautiful scenery including Browns Canyon. Erika picked us up in Vail...
