Great rafting trip

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.

Excellent local company that has long term guides. The guides and owners were very helpful to our group. They were very concerned about providing the best possible trip. Trip leader Josh was very good and kept things moving without feeling like he was pushing. Yampa canyon is very beautiful and should not be missed.

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
