A total of 8 family members aged 18 to 62 did the Wild & Scenic Poudre River trip in early August for the second time in 3 years and loved every minute! The water was a little low but our guides still made it a fun and challenging morning. Peyton and Tanner were our guides and they were knowledgable, entertaining,... More

A large group of us took the 2hour rafting trip we ended up with 3 rafts between us. Our guide Mitch was truly excellent very skilled at his job but making sure we all had a wild adventure it was epic. When we got out all 3 boats thought they had the best guide ever everyone one of us had... More

Our entire family, including older grandkids, got to spend the afternoon with an awesome bunch of guides on the Poudre River yesterday. Our guides, Will & Charlie, were the best and made it really fun for all of us. Instruction was excellent and we felt safe with the confident guides. We loved the bonus ride at the end of the...

My husband and I and 2 of our friends went rafting with A-1 and had an amazing experience! Noah was our guide and he was fantastic! We're staying in Breckenridge but the water at the higher levels was lower so we drove to Ft. Collins (about 2 hrs). It was well worth the drive! It was my first time so... More

We took a 2 hour trip with this well run rafting company. The water in the river was running low and slow, so at this time of year it is good for all levels of rafters. We made reservations ahead of time on line and everything about this company was top notch. The equipment was new and the guides were... More

This was a wonderful introduction to white water rafting for our family! Our rafting guide, Mitch, was knowledgeable, entertaining, and made us feel totally comfortable with our first time experience rafting! The only complaint I have is that the photographs the company provides are ridiculously expensive! One photo is $13. It would be nice if they offered a reasonable package... More

We took our 3 kids (10, 7, and 7) on the wild water tour (the calmer, family-oriented tour). Tori was our guide and she was excellent! We had a very reluctant rafter, and Tori did a great job enticing her to give it a try. In retrospect, we may have been a little ambitious taking two 7 year olds on... More

This was a wonderful time. My husband and I have never been rafting before. We choose the Wild and Scenic trip. The staff were very upbeat and fun. Our guide (Alex) was very thorough and informative. The scenic river and thrilling Rapids were just a blast. I recommend it to anyone. The staff covers safety and rules to follow. If... More

Family of 4 had a great experience with Larry Chip the pirate guide, even my wife who was very hesitate about doing the trip said she loved it. My daughter and I loved when we stopped and swam in the rapids,that took any fear of being in the water if we were to be dumped out, which didn't happen. Although... More

Took our children on their first whitewater rafting trip with A-1 and have to say, it was such a great adventure! Requested reservation via the online system and was called back next day to confirm. Received all info via email including what to bring, how to dress, etc. The day of the trip the check-in process was easy enough, then... More
