We had a wonderful time with our group and tour guide, Scott. We took the full day scenic tour of the Colorado River, and we would definitely do this again. The highlift for us was the opportunity to see a mother and baby bear on the shore line. We had a wonderful driver who knew a lot about the mountains.... More

We had a family group of about 15 people of all shapes, sizes and ages and everyone had a blast! Our bus driver was most entertaining and made the long trip to the river that much better. We even got to see a black bear on the way up and the driver stopped to let us look and take pictures... More

We had 6 in our group. Our guide was Brian. He was a lot of fun and really made the trip to the river fun and informative. He can be quite the jokester! He went out of his way to show us different areas of Estes Park. He was able to get us through the traffic jam on a busy... More

This was our second trip in two years, with these guys, and I can't say enough good things about the experience. They're as entertaining as they are qualified to take a group of inexperienced folks down the Poudre River in fairly swift conditions. They even have some essentials, like water shoes and things to keep your glasses from taking a... More

We booked a half day on the Poudre River last week. To make things clear; It's a 90 minute trip to the river. No getting away from that...it's a function of geography. Rapid Transit transportation was safe, reliable, and allowed me to be a passenger (instead of the driver) through the great scenery to and from Fort Collins. Rafael gave... More

We booked a half day trip the last weekend of white rafting season. We knew ahead of time that the water would be lower, but still had a great time on the water! All the staff was friendly, professional, and helpful. The only negative thing about the trip is the time it takes to get river, which is expected! Our... More

Went rafting with my family (8 of us) in August 2014. The bus ride is long, but everything about the trip, start to finish, was well organized and professional. Check in, bus ride, bathroom stop, guides, etc. We just wish the time on the water was longer.

My son and I used this company for our first ever rafting trip. They were very well organized and included transportation from Estes Park to the river. The only drawback of rafting while staying in Estes Park is the ride to the Poudre River is long. It was nice however not to have to drive ourselves. The staff was very... More

Had a blast on our full day Colorado river trip. The drive on trail ridge road was a bit nerve wracking for me but the driver was awesome. When we got to the river I was nervous for it being my first time but our guide on the river was awesome as well. The river wasn't as fast as earlier... More

We're sorry to hear you aren't a fan of mountain roads. Since we did the driving for you, at least you got to see the spectacular scenery of Trail Ridge Road. The Colorado River is so beautiful and quiet. We can't wait to get there next week ourselves. Thanks for taking the time to write such nice things about the... More
