I went on the 4 day Green River trip with a few friends and it was one of the best trips I have ever taken. The guides were really professional, fun and I felt totally safe in their hands the entire trip. They provided amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. It was such a unique and fun way to...

This was an awesome trip. We were brand new to rafting and had a fantastic time. The guides, the food, the arrangements were so great, we felt like royalty being treated to a wonderful adventure. The rafting options were excellent with time to just sit and be "driven" as well as paddling ourselves in "duckies" -- the inflatable kayaks. The... More

Just did the 4 day/3 night trip on the Green. For the past 20+ years I have done lots of river kayaking in southern MO and wilderness canoe trips in Canada but had never done white water rafting. It has been on the top of my bucket list for years. This trip exceeded my expectations in every way. The guides... More

A group of four of us took the 4 day / 3 night Gates of Lodore trip with DRE and had a fabulous time that exceeded our expectations. A bucket list celebration for one of the group’s 60th birthday was an excellent excuse to join him and his wife. My two pre-teen girls were quite disappointed after seeing our pictures... More

If you like rafting you have to take the 4 day trip. Great scenery and wildlife along the river. Lots of rapids. Their guides were the best.

We just got off the raft on the Green River and can't wait to do it again. The company is very attentive to your needs and the rental equipment was clean! I needed a gluten-free diet and the guides were very cautious about cross contamination. We had a great time in the rafts and the kayaks were the best. We... More

My adult family and 6 year old grandson did a 4 day 3 night rafting trip down the green river! It was fantastic, full of adventure, hiking, great food, and wonderful people. The guides were patient, kind and helpful. They even accommodated my gluten free eating! We had so much fun. It was for my sons 40th birthday.

We went on the 4 day 3 night rafting trip down the Green River July 6th (2014) and it was most excellent! Tyler and Jan, the owners, are friendly, helpful, and want to you have a great experience. Much of DRE's procedures (menus and food, dry bags, readily available water) are very much like other raft companies- so rest assured... More
