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.

Dinosaur River Expeditions did a fantastic job thrilling, feeding, guiding and educating us about the geology of the areas we rafted. We hiked and saw petroglyphs, beautiful falls and interesting caves as well. We marveled at the organization and hard work our guides performed to make it a very enjoyable and safe vacation. We rented one of their tents and... More

Spent 4 days with fabulous river guides from Dinosaur River Expeditions on the Green and Yampa rivers. The Guides were very knowledgeable about flora and fauna, history of rivers and just fun guys to hang out with around the campfire. The food was terrific and we definitely all gained a few pounds. Day Hikes were fun. Thanks for a fun... More

Dinosaur is the best! From the reservation progress through the entire trip and back at the office, the employees are AMAZING! The trip was beyond fun and family friendly. Even though we didn't have kids in our party, the guides were great to keep the kids on the trip entertained with games and chatting. The food was always gourmet and... More
