We had a perfect 1/2 day ride (recommend the morning trip). This ride is apparently the length of a full day ride with the competitors. Outstanding guides and support staff! Definitely recommend the "Duckie" experience if a warm day.

Our group of 9 included 5 children from age 4-11. Our guide Rich was SO great with the kids and made sure everyone had a great time. I can't say enough about this small business! We were able to drive to their meet up location in less than 45 min from Vail and were able to get in our car... More

We took a 1/2 day rafting trip. It was perfect. Since the Colorado River is a little low, this is basically a float trip. That said, we opted for the inflatable Kayak (Duckies) which makes the experience more adventurous. The guides were so personable and fun, Bill and Rich did a great job! Located about 45 minutes outside of Avon... More

Awesome views, awesome guides, wonderful experience. Certainly would recommend to anyone. Longer ride and less expensive that the other companies being booked out of Vail. Highly recommended.

This is our fourth year to raft with Colorado River Guides, and we again had a great trip. Our family ranged in age from 11 to 67, and everyone was happy! My two boys and I were in inflatable kayak "duckies" the whole time - close to the water, active and wet! My mom was in a big raft, with... More

We had a great time rafting with Jeff! Perfect family-friendly ride, felt safe the entire time. Could also take out duckies for the more adventurous. Great scenery, friendly and helpful guides, they even took us out on the 4th of July! Highly recommend.

If you are in the area, this is the company to go down the river with! They took us on a half day trip on the Colorado River. We have 2 boys, 9 and 12, and it was great for them and us. It was just the right amount of adventure! Paul was our guide and he was very knowledgable... More

My family and some friends brought our kids on this amazing rafting ride this weekend. We had 3 toddlers (all between ages of 3-4) for a half-day ride of the upper Colorado river. It was so fun and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves! Paul was our guide and incredibly knowledgeable, experienced and personable. He was awesome to work with when booking... More

Our guide Paul was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was our first rafting trip and it was a great experience. Highly recommend this mom and pop rafting company. Prices are better than any other company and the 2.5 hour tour was perfect. We will be back to see Paul and his dog Lucy.
