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!

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

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

My company recently had our annual summit in Beaver Creek and we took our group of 70 to go white water rafting. Everyone had an awesome experience with the Lakota guides and found them to be extremely personable, knowledgeable and funny. Derek R was our guide and, in addition to being completely adorable, he was very entertaining and made us... More
