“Family of five loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Our guide Suzie was fantastic and really took care of us, guiding the raft expertly, and telling jokes along the way! We have twin boys who are 10, and a five year old - he rode up front holding onto the rope. They each loved the ride, and the fact that along the route we stopped so that they could swim in the cool, still sections of the river. It was our first rafting trip ever, and Suzie made it memorable. The 8 mile restaurant's food was quite good, we had lunch before our 1:30 pm Big Horn Sheep Canyon trip. And the staff were all helpful and friendly. You could tell most of them really like their jobs! Well done, Echo Canyon.

Thanks for your review Sheri! I'll be sure to pass your compliments along to Suzie. It's awesome to hear your kids loved the trip and had fun swimming around between rapids. We also appreciate hearing feedback on our restaurant and our staff in general. We hope to see your family again before long, Sheri. Thank you!

“Fun for Everybody”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I finally convinced my family to go white water rafting. We picked a higher class stretch because it was mid/late summer. We actually had some pretty good flow for August. Shaun was a great guide! Even 50 yr old parents thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience.

Alex, Way to go convincing the family to include rafting! As a guide myself, I understand how hesitant so many people are before their first raft trip, and then they absolutely love it after we get through the first rapid. We're pleased you could join us and thank you kindly for spending some time offering your review. Thanks Alex!

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I am a flight attendant and was on a long layover in Denver, so took advantage and did a half day trip with Echo Canyon. Great decision. Had a blast. The beauty of nature was inspiring! Newman was an absolutely fabulous guide!! Will definitely do it again when the opportunity arises!!! Thanks for a great time.

“Awesome Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had an awesome time! We took our 6 & 8 year old children on the 1/2 day Big Horn Sheep trip. They loved it! Our guide, Jodi, was fantastic, telling us about various parts of the river and telling stories. The kids said they would rather go rafting again than go to Walt Disney World!

This is our second time in 4 years going white water rafting with Echo Canyon on the Bighorn Sheep Canyon half day trip. We will come back in another couple years to do the Royal Gorge.
