Everyone was very nice and helpful. Lilly was our guide and she is fun: she let us ride on the ‘nose’ of the boat and jump in the river where the waters were calm. We did the mild and shorter ride (about 10 miles down the Colorado river), which I think is the best choice for a first rafting experience, but now we cannot wait to come back and try the half day ride. We saw 2 bald eagles and enjoyed so much the pretty red and lime green colors of the Glenwood Canyon!
I am thankful they were able to work us in an hour before the start of the ride, as this was our last say of vacation in Glenwood Springs.

We went on the Double Shoshone Rapids trip and it was awesome!! Our group ranged in age from 9 to 54 years old and we all loved it and had a blast! We had Nate as our guide and he did it all, guiding us successfully through the rapids and giving us a history of the area in the mellower spots on the river. Highly recommend doing a trip through Whitewater Rafting; the whole experience was well organized and everyone was super friendly and accommodating. Well worth the drive from Breckenridge!!

This was our 3rd trip and as always the crew at Whitewater Rafting did not disappoint! From start to finish the presentation was excellent. They ensure your safety gear is on properly, run through things to know and introduce you to your guide for the trip (ours was Chicklette). Our group ranged from age 8 to 52 and everyone throughly enjoyed it. Highly recommend!

My family is which included my husband, 3 kids ranging from 5-11, and my in-laws rafted yesterday on the Colorado with Whitewater Rafting LLC. We have rafted once before and the difference in the two companies was night and day. Whitewater Rafting LLC was so clean and organized! From the time we checked in and got our river training it was so professional and well organized we were blown away. The rapids were fantastic, thrilling, and everyone went home soaked. We could not have loved our guide Rio more. We noticed the way he got us into the thrill sections in a way that other guided did not around us. He was so kind and patient with our kids, especially our very chatty 8 year old daughter. He let all 3 of our kids ride “bull” on the rapids after the big rapids up front and they all felt so accomplished and proud of themselves. In the few sections we did not have steady rapids he gave us a very educated guided tour of the canyon walls around us and told jokes that entertained the whole family. We would absolutely recommend this company. Our only regret was not doing the full day. Thanks for a great time! Worth every penny!!!!

We did the full day Rafting Trip with our 9 year old son. The guides were all great . Our main guide was Chicklette. He did a fantastic job with instructions on rafting, providing information about the scenery/landmarks and giving our son special attention too. He made it fun so that everyone on our raft had a good time. Because of water levels being high on part of the CO River we did half the day on the CO River and half on Roaring Fork. We saw two bald eagles up close. I’d recommend having a rain jacket or renting a splash jacket for $5 if you tend to get cold in that refreshing river water! Both rivers were incredible. I would definitely come back here again and use Whitewater Rafting LLC!

Originally came out to do the river float, but the staff let us know they had a few extra spots available on the more advanced rafting and we took the opportunity. It ended up being one of the most fun experiences I've ever had. RJ was an amazing guide and made it so much fun. Highly recommend giving this a shot!

We had quite an adventure yesterday through waves, cold and sun (and thankfully, not waiting behind the accident in South Canyon)!  

Phoebe, Franco & Emily at Whitewater were simply amazing for us!  Our twelve 7th graders WENT FOR IT in Shoshone, getting rowdy and wet, but then the clouds came in & wind picked up. When kids felt so cold at lunch, they provided wetsuits, splash jackets and booties to all the kids for duckying down to South Canyon, and Phoebe even brought us hot cocoa!  SO thoughtful, and really helped make the kids' experience in the afternoon as wonderful as what they'd done on Shoshone in the morning.  Emily & Franco (Dad) were both SO great with the kids, encouraging fun and silliness even through safety talks.  My students absolutely LOVED it.

Had a great time rafting with our family! Our guide, Foster, was terrific and a lot of fun. Rapids did not disappoint and the water was cold-perfect for a hot July day. This outfit is extremely organized and guides are friendly.

Business was professional, knowledgeable, and very capable. The staff provided effective instruction on safety considerations for white water rafting. Our guide Mallard was in complete control of the raft and provided opportunities for my kids to learn about her job and role as a guide. She provided a lot of information on the science and history of the area we rafted through. She presented the information effectively and at a level of comprehension which is not typically observed in people of similar age and time as a guide.

She definitely made the trip better and would 10 out of 10 come back because of our guide the professional staff!

I had never been rafting but always wanted to. When I suggested to my family about going, they were all on board! I looked at Whitewater Rafting, LLC's reviews and decided to go with them, as I wanted to this to be fun for everyone and their reviews looked great. We were not disappointed! We had 5 adults and 3 kids, ranging from 65 years old to 8 years old- everyone had a blast! RJ, our guide was patient, friendly and had fun with the kids. The other guides around us seemed to enjoy their jobs, too. It was as organized as it could be, considering they had to herd 50 customers to the right places at the right times, make sure they were safe and had fun, all at the same time! I HIGHLY recommend this company!
