Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend it :) Our group for the week had 12 campers and 4 guides (apparently this was a smaller group than usual). Our guides were Melissa, Josh, Shawn, and Brett - they were the... More

We had five grandchildren with us ( one teen, four tweens) and the oarsmen continually made sure that their time in the duckies and paddle board was safe and rewarding. On the 3rd day as most of the group went on... More

This was a trip that will be talked about for years and we hope to take again with friends. The information that was given pre-trip by Jen was perfect, she made me feel very comfortable about our first rafting experience. All the guides were fantastic. They made us feel save and comfortable at all times, but at the same time... More

This adventure was one of the best family vacations we've had. Reasonable sized group (19 guests with 5 guides) on 5 oar boats made it friendly and personal. The group was made up of 6 different groups from around the country with teenagers to recently retired couples. The guides went out of their way to make everyone comfortable and to... More

We had a great white water rafting trip with our family on the Green River. Ryan was the perfect guide and had a great lunch for us. I highly recommend Dinosaur River Expeditions.

My family had a fantastic trip with Dinosaur River Expeditions down the Yampa River in the Dinosaur Monument Area. The guides were helpful and concerned with our safety. Their fun loving attitude made the trip enjoyable. The food was excellent and the rafting was an exciting adventure.
