We recently visited Vail, CO with a large group of severely wounded Veterans. Our first day out, we went on a jeep excursion with Ben from Timberline Tours. It was such an amazing experience. He took us on an amazing adventure to Camp Hale. We learned so much, not only about the history of the camp but about the nature... More

My girlfriends and I just returned from a fabulous trip to Colorado. One of the highlights of our trip was the river rafting trip with Timberline Tours. Our tour guide Rod made the trip feel very safe since a few of us were a little worried about the "rapids". We chose a more quiet part of the river and just... More

We took the 2 1/2 hour Class III Shoshone trip with lunch. Our guide was Wizz and he was a wiz on the river! Great instructions, fun stories, overall super time. Our raft had eight first time rafters and everyone loved it. Thanks Wizz and Timberline Tours.

Agreed--Wizz is way more than a stellar whitewater rafting guide, and we're glad that you were able to experience his multiple talents. We will pass your comments on to him, and now that you guys are all experienced on whitewater, we look forward to seeing you again! Thank YOU for taking the time to leave a response. More

We had a perfect half day float trip, Shoshone rapids, and our guide Wiz did a fantastic job calming nervous rafters, telling many fantastic lies, and sprinkling in interesting history of the area. Rocky met us with a busload of other rafters and did a great job of explaining what we were going to be doing, safety info, and making... More

Thank you for mentioning Wiz and Rocky specifically. We will let them know. Both of these guides are experienced whitewater guides--but, we agree, they have a lot of personality and local knowledge, too! Thank you for taking the time to leave a positive response--we will pass it on, and we hope that you join us again in the future! More

We did a Cat 3/4 trip with Timberline Tours June 18th and the 19th. Our first trip with guides Alessandro and Willy was non-stop fun, lots of rapids with good bumps. Our trip was 2 hours of near non-stop white water action. Fantastic, and perhaps the highlight of our trip. Our foursome had SO MUCH FUN on the Thrusday morning... More

Put six ladies who have known each other for over 40+ years on a raft with an amazing guide and what do you get? An unforgettable experience!
