We had a great time with Wilderness Aware. I recommend the Ducky Extreme Overnight Adventure. Its not on the menu of options so you have to call and ask for it. Make sure to ask for Michael to be your guide. The food was great and Wilderness Aware did a great job keeping us safe and organized.

We had a great time with wilderness aware. We had a great guide (Rachel ) she was the best. We had a great group in our raft. The weather was perfect. Lots of rafts on the water. Highly recommend. We are in our 60’s and had a wonderful time. The water was low creating many hazards. Rachel was a expert in guiding us down River.

We enjoyed the variety of water we rafted from gentle floating to class 3 rapids. Our guide Jake did an excellent job of calling out instructions as we maneuvered through tricky parts of the river. It was a very enjoyable and exhilarating experience.

Our first time White Water Rafting! Wilderness Aware Rafting in Buena Vista, CO was very professional, offered advice on clothing, rentals were available and our guide “Banana” was knowledgeable. We felt safe and had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this company.

From the conversation while making the reservation (I really appreciated that you couldn't simply make the reservation on-line--my conversation with Jody was helpful and she was professional and friendly), to the check-in, to the trip itself, we could not have asked for a better experience. Our family had never whitewater rafted, but were sufficiently athletic to adapt quickly to the skills needed to navigate the river without leaving the boat. Michael, our guide, was exceptional, serious about the effort require to navigate the rapids and highly skilled, yet very funny too. We were all sorry the trip ended so soon. One final note: I left my sandals and swimsuit on one of the picnic tables, only discovering this after we'd arrived at a campground an hour away. Jody again answered the phone when I called and made sure that I could retrieve these items when we passed back through Buena Vista a few days later. Keep up the great work!
