      Via Ferrata
      We did the Via Ferrata late September with Finn (Fionn?) and Sara. It was the perfect balance of adrenaline and adventure while still feeling perfectly safe. HIGHLY recommend!

      Enjoyable experience!
      Guide & staff are knowledgeable and accommodative. The highlights of it all are the everchanging rapids and the few splashes along the way down the river.

      Great float trip
      Our guide Eric made the trip a wonderful experience. He provided many interesting facts about the area, the river, wildlife and even dinosaurs! We thoroughly enjoyed it.

      I will be back!
      AVA in partnership with CSR rentals offers an off road adventure that surpasses any and all adventures that I have ever been on. We chose a 4 hour self guided tour in a 4 seater Polaris Rzr during the afternoon. We were guided on the trails using an onboard GPS that took us to see some Awesome views in the Kremmling mountain area. We also saw deer and cows in the fields that day. I would recommend bringing a lunch and lots of water for this trip to make pit stops along the away to take pictures as the scenery is Awesome. You will have aGreat time. I will be back!

      Wonderful family Adventure
      Great family experience! We took my daughter, and her family ( grandkids 2,5,7yr) and my 87 yr old mother on this adventure. Eric was a careful driver. Christian was a super guide, very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. He made everyone of us feel welcomed. Beautiful scenery, we saw lots of wildlife and reveled in God’s handiwork. Highly recommend this trip !

      Quality service from start to finish
      This shuttle service was very responsive. They sent timely reminder emails and a text with pickup location information When I missed my scheduled Vail shuttle due to a flight delay, with one phone call I was rebooked on a later shuttle (for NO additional cost!). It is the best way to travel between Denver airport and the resort towns.

      Super Fun Day at Upper Clear Creek
      Loved the Clear Creek Rafting trip! I was headed to Vail from Denver and this was the perfect mid-way adventure. Uber Clear Creek is a thrilling and challenging river with multiple Class 4 rapids, but Wyatt was an awesome guide and was able to coach us through it, even though our group was inexperienced and quite a bit out of sync ;) The guides and bus driver were all fun and full of personality and information. They clearly love what they do. They also have a nice shop. They take phots of you on the river and are available for purchase. $30 for one pic, but $50 for all (around 20 photos total). I did not purchase the photos myself because the majority were taken at a point in the river when we were instructed to get “Down!” So my face was not visible as I was following my guides instructions.

      Amenities within walking distance
      Our host was very accommodating, with tips and ideas to fill the week with fun and activities that fit our needs and budget. With dining, hiking, and horseback riding right outside our door we had plkenty of activities to choose from. The pool and hot tub area was very pleasant to visit through out the day!!

      Great Day on the Water
      We had a great guide but got off to a late start as they held up the a group of 40+ folks for a party of ten that didn’t plan well and was late. It was a good trip but get there in early June if you want more exciting water.

      Had a fantastic afternoon on the water
      We had a terrific afternoon on the river with our guide, Cara. There were 9 rafts in total on this particular trip. The drive down to the river in the bus was enlivened by a guide who told jokes and gave historical information about the area. The rain started as we got onto the water and we saw a number of lightning flashes. It poured for a few minutes but that didn’t dampen Cara’s enthusiasm. We saw a bald eagle as we rafted and Cara provided information about the history of the area and she pointed out interesting man-made and geographical features. I was quite nervous at the beginning but it really was a fun float with a few rapids to get the heart going. Cassie was the trip leader for all 9 rafts and the safety presentations, both at the meeting place and at the river, were excellent.

    The experience was great but be careful I got ripped off by the company: I was quoted a fixed price for 2 events and 2 weeks after I paid for the fixed and agreed by contract price I was asked to pay double what I was quoted and they debited my credit card without talking to me ! I am appalled by this behaviour and no one would call to explain. Do not leave your credit card details to these guys as they will just take your money without asking you!

    Cancelled days before, massive inconvenience for us. They should offer partial refund and a replacement trip (or discount off other trip) if that happens, not just offer to book you for something else. Not even remotely apologetic about the inconvenience. When asked why we weren’t getting some discount or partial refund, response was “we have to be profitable”.

    Brought a team of 19 from all over the country here for a team building exercise. Great experience from start to finish. They were professional, timely, had a great course, and had fantastic guides (Ours were Spencer & Emily (MJ)) who had a great sense or humor and made the experience that much better. Would highly recommend.
