I have two young kids. We chose the half day trip. Our guide Mike was fabulous. He knew a lot about Colorado and was terrific and steering the boat. The trip was perfect for our family. Level 3 and lower Rapids. We all had the best time. Even saw a black bear! The lunch at the end is also worth... More

My husband, 10 year old son, and I booked a trip through Brown's Canyon with Lakota based on a recommendation of our concierge. While getting outfitted to head to the river, all of the Lakota staff was friendly and accommodating. They even offered wet suits for thin skinned Texans like myself! We loaded up and headed out with Tanner who... More

My wife booked a run of Brown's Canyon with Lakota Guides as a surprise birthday gift. It was a double bonus for me because I'd been wanting to give our kids their first taste of whitewater adventure, but not to scare them out of their minds. We ended up in the capable hands of a duo of guides named Austin... More

What a great experience! The guides are all friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, professional and safety conscious. We did the Shoshone section of the Colorado (Glenwood Canyon), and it was not only fun, but also interesting thanks to Derek's many stories of local lore. Can't wait to do it again!! Great lunch at the end.

I made a reservation weeks ago to take the Brown Canyon all day tour with Lakota River Guides. The afternoon before the reservation we got a call from the company that they did not have enough people to run the trip. First, they offered to replace the full day trip with a half day morning trip or a half day... More

This is the third year in a row that we have taken a river rafting trip with Lakota Guides and we always love it. Each year Joe has been our guide and he's the best (even in spite of one of the worst mullets ever grown). We go up in challenge each year as our kids get older and can... More

Had such a blast. First time ever white water rafting, guides were complete pros. It was 29 of us (3 rafts). I recommend anyone visiting the Avon, Vail, Beaver Creek area to check them out, they will not disappoint.
