We (parents und 2 kids, 12 and 14) did the 4 days 3 nights Gate of Lodore Trip. We met fantastic people (also Merry W and her great family, see the her review), the guides were helpful, fun, caring, interesting ... Nature, wildlife, hikes, rapids, camps, food - all was more than we hoped to see.

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.

I was the person in charge of arranging this for our employee's. Dinosaur River Expeditions (Ty and Jen) were so great to work with. They were so helpful and accommodating for... More

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

I can't imagine a better trip : incredible scenery/geology, one of the more remote areas of the country where everyone must unplug and unwind, super refreshing river that wasn't too cold like some alpine environments, pristine campgrounds with beautiful sand beaches, whitewater fun for all ages, gorgeous desert climate, a bunch of historical significance, and last but most definitely not...

Friends and I booked this trip. We were given little information about what to bring and wear, when we tried to contact the company the morning of our trip we could not get through. Upon arrival we had to pay the remainder of our trip cost (less $25 deposits) and the company didn't have change for those of us that... More

I took a four day trip through Gates of Lodore. The crew was very professional and experienced. They made the trip a lot of fun. Good knowledge of the local geology made the flat water sections more interesting. All of the guides knew the river well. They were always on top any situation.
