Late Season Raft Trip

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... read more

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

Had group of 10 split into two groups. Riley and Dylan did an awesome job. We did the more advance trip and had several first timers. They did a great job of making it fun, entertaining and safe. They effectively communicated what was going on the entire trip so there were surprises on the water. Only time we felt unsafe... More

I was a little worried to have our first whitewater experience be in the Rocky Mountains, but we had a blast! Our guide Alex, and all the others in the group, were awesome. They made the trip fun and loose. But it was also evident that they were experts in the water. We quickly learned to paddle forward and backward... More

We decided to raft on our trip to Colorado, with one reluctant participant. Our experience was fabulous. The guides (especially Tory) were knowledgeable and entertaining. The entire organization was customer friendly. Even the bus ride out (about 25 minutes) was great. Terry knew the roads and maneuvered the bus brilliantly. We would all definitely go again.
