The raft trip was so much fun! Scott is a terrific guide who makes you laugh, teaches you about the history and natural features, and gets everyone involved. There were 5 of us, 3 generations, including an 11 year old, who was very nervous about rafting. By the end, he was sitting in the guide's seat, giving orders to us paddlers ( with Scott's advice!) Jumping off the cliff was a big highlight for our nephew. Scott's dog Eddy was adorable and added to everyone's fun. This company seemed much better than the other rafts that rushed past us while Scott took time to get us out of the raft at an old cabin and a hot springs. If you are considering a raft trip, pick this one! I highly recommend Scott and Doug (the guide on the other raft) ! They are the BEST!

Our family with a 14, 12 and 8 year old enjoyed our first ever rafting trip with Paddle Colorado. We had a great time - lots of family fun! The personalized touch of a smaller operator and engaging but professional guides made all the difference. We did the half-day Upper Colorado River float. The kids had so much fun they asked to do the full-day float next time.

Outstanding trip! This was all made possible by Scott. We could not have had a better guide. Eddie ( the rafting pup) came along with us for the trip and everyday spent on the water and with a pup is an excellent day. Our rafting colleagues also made the day; the whole experience was very laid back and very safe which Scott made sure everyone knew what to do and not to do while on the water. We got to see the ‘hidden’ hot springs, swim in the ‘lake’ and see the dinosaur footprints. Truly the highlight of our trip. Highly recommended.

One piece of advice for others; make sure Scott and team bring enough left hand paddles; as we were a couple short for our trip.

We had both Scott and Chris guiding us in two rafts. I’ve never seen so much laughter from both my teens and toddler! Between the water gun fights to jumping off “punk rock” they had the time of their lives. As we stopped many times at different locations to learn about history or wading in the hot springs we saw many other companies just drift by…Scott makes this trip much more than just a rafting trip… just wish we would have booked the full day! Thanks guys for making our trip to Frisco memorable!

This was my 3rd time whitewater rafting, but was my favorite trip to date! This trip was so much more than just whitewater rafting. There were many opportunities to get out of the raft and explore historical sites along the way, along with cliff jumping, warming up in the natural hot springs, and water fights with other rafts on the river. This trip was a much more personable experience (2 hours on the river with entertaining guides) rather than a quick trip down the river and then the guides are on to their next trip. Our guides, Caleb and Scott, were awesome, along with their pups, Eddy and Reilly!! The dogs on the raft was just icing on the cake! I highly recommend and hope to get back for another trip! Thanks guys!!

My wife and I went on the half day trip, and had such an incredible time! Scott and the guides are such cool people, and we felt like we had known them forever. They are great at pointing out spots of interest during the van ride and the raft trip. We will absolutely be back with the kids for the full day trip next time!

My husband and I went together, and it was amazing! It was my first time rafting, and I was a little unsure of what to expect, but Scott was so great at explaining everything and making sure that everyone felt confident and at ease. We loved seeing the nature, and hearing about the history of the area. It was so great that I absolutely want to come back with our kids next Sunday!

We were a family with Grandma, daughter, daughter in law, grand children(age 11 & 13) and great grandchildren (age 10 and 6) We were in two rafts and Oh what fun!!! The guides were wonderful with the kids. Stops along the route were educational and lots of fun. The warm spring was delightful and watching young people jump off the cliff was exciting, then we stopped where the cliff was not quite as high and jumped off into the river. The guides were never in a hurry and let the kids help as much as they wanted. I would highly recommend Paddle Colorado and guides Doug and Steve.
