Great adventure. Not an 'easy river' ride. Be prepared to work at this. The guides were superb! It was a blast!

We vacationed in Steamboat Springs the last week of July 2021. We booked a half day raft trip. Chelsea was so kind on the phone and answered all my questions. My husband and I and our 5 kids (ages 7-11) loved the experience. We were in a raft with Paul and took turns on the duckies. Paul was so easy going, knowledgeable, safe, and made it so fun for our kids. We loved watching his dag, Jenny, play in the river. I highly recommend Colorado River Guides! It was my kids favorite part of our vacation!

The best part of this experience was being able to man our own duckie with Paul guiding the trip. Paul was extraordinarily knowledgeable of the area and a delight to guide us. His dog Jenny, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, made everyone feel like they had spent their childhood on the river with Paul. Highly recommend this fun adventure for all ages!

We had a wonderful time on our rafting trip! We had two families and 4 kids aged 9-4 and it was perfect for us. Paul was so knowledgeable and friendly and made it really fun for the kids. Jenny the dog followed us the entire way and the kids had a ball watching her. Highly recommend this trip for any families with younger kids- it was safe, beautiful, and the perfect length of time (half day).
