My husband and I have two 11 yr olds and two 9 year olds and we had a blast on the water! We had never rafted before so we were apprehensive with the age of our children and doing the "wild and scenic". We trusted the advice of the experts though as our kids are strong, adventurous, and up for... More

This was my first experience river rafting and I booked the "Wild and Scenic" for myself and my two sons, 12 and 13. Our guide, Tori, was amazing--knowledgeable, skillful and helpful. ( Other employees of A1 were also great. ) I am certain it was her expertise that kept us IN the raft while others spilled out at the rapids.... More

Out of our group of 7 we had four of us who had never done it before and one very apprehensive. Our guide was the best ever...Riley and he showed us a great time and did a great job of putting us all at ease. Best time ever and we felt safe and he advised of us all the bumps... More

We spent an afternoon doing the Wild and Scenic Tour with Noah as our guide. We experienced Class 3 and 4 rapids. My husband and my daughter and I had rafted Class 1, 2, & 3 rapids before and we were with friends and their daughter who had never rafted. Not only did Noah know how to safely direct and... More

Three of us did the Wild and Scenic afternoon trip. Great adventure and a superb guide. Thanks Dylan Dems for a fun, comical, informational and safe afternoon. Reservation process was easy - just made it over the phone. Check in was a breeze. The staff was friendly, professional and efficient. We rented booties to keep our feet warm in the... More

We were rafting with a different company but we couldn't help but notice how unsafe and unprofessional the A-1 group was. They were putting in their rafts as we were passing by and they didn't even wait to allow some space so they were following very close and letting young kids jump in and out of the raft in pretty...

Rafting morning if July 1st. Nice energy from staff and customers checking in, scenic bus ride, good instructions (serious, but with humor) from Kateland. I was also in Kateland's raft, and the joy she showed guiding us was a big plus. The entire 2 hours of rafting was engaging, always in a fast current, paddling for position most of the... More

We didn't make reservations before we left for Colorado, not recommended! A1 was able to accommodate our group of 10 and it was, without a doubt, the highlight of our vacation. The last rapid was extremely challenging, but our guide was awesome. Thanks to Rob for getting through safely. What a rush.

What a beautiful way to spend the day! We arrived at 8:45am, checked-in, got our west suits, booties, jackets and helmets, and waited near the bus. Once we got there, we were given the safety spiel and we were off. It took maybe 30 or so minutes to get to the departure point. All of the rapids were awesome. The... More
