Mike was our tour guide for the kicking horse classic and we were all soaking wet from rafting.

We had a great time with Jeff as our guide. He was so knowledgeable and let us know what was coming up and gave us ideas about hikes around Golden and some good places to eat. We all had a fantastic time and can't wait to go back next year.

We had such an epic time! Well fed lunch and great guides on the river giving us time to learn the rafting terms and educating us about the area and why the river is called kicking horse! A well rounded supporting team and my husband and I enjoyed every moment! Awesome job to the alpine rafting:)

We are a family with 11 & 10 years old kids. We really liked, but unfortunately, there is only one rapid that is interesting. The rest was too quiet. Service, peple and so were excellent. All in all I recommend to take the more dangerous rafting.

Such a fantastic adventure for our family! GREAT lunch served at the half way mark of the adventure and then if you chose to continue on the rest of the trip, the rapids would be more intense and you must be at least 90lbs. Our youngest is only 76lbs. Even at that, it'll be an experience they'll soon not forget... More

Myself, my husband, and our two boys ages 10 and 5 booked a family rafting trip. The experience was awesome even though myself and our two boys ended up in the river. It was only a minute or two and we were all back in the raft. The waterfall climb was also awesome and the lunch was pretty good too.... More

I have been rafting in many places around the world and if you are looking for a float trip with a couple of splashes then this is your trip!! Great for beginners and people who are nervous but kind of a joke for people that have been rafting anywhere else. Their section (3&4) is more like a 2 at the... More

Hello John, I am so sorry to hear that the rafting with us was a disappointment to you. We value our guests opinions, and are happy that you brought this to our attention. The middle canyon that we raft is generally comprised of class 3 rapids. That being said, depending on the time of the year, and the weather forecasts,... More
