The guides were fantastic, made it a lot of fun. Only downside is the price of the pictures, but please note it's per boat! Did a deal with the other family in the boat, we split the cost. I'd highly recommend the fun guides we had today, they were brilliant. Cheers

The experience was great. Our guide Brady was excellent. He took 5 novice rafters and made the trip enjoyable and safe. We all made it to the end without anyone falling out of the raft. I highly recommend Raft Masters, they're the best.

I did not personally do the rafting, but I booked the trip for my husband and two children. I called on July 2nd trying to book for July 3rd and to my surprise I was able to do so despite it being a holiday weekend. The price is great and from what my husband said the raft guide was excellent.... More

We went with a large church group of over 100 girls! Rafts Masters was so well organized, professional and efficient at getting all of us quickly and safely onto the river. Everything ran SO smoothly and we all had an amazing trip. I was so impressed with the way they got us on the river considering how large our group... More

Have been wanting to do the rafting trip a long time, finally got to go with our 16u Bombers softball teams from San Antonio area. What a blast it was, will definitely be doing it again. We did the intermediate trip 3 to 4 level. Our group of 25 all had a great experience. Don't hesitate just do it. Our... More

If you going rafting you should seriously consider Raft Masters. Very friendly and safety conscious. This was the first time my 13 son had been rafting. He was scared to death before getting in the water. The guides did a great job of helping him relax and have fun. He had the time of his life and wants to go... More

First time rafting in CO. Chose to take the intermediate trip. Creek was running high and made for some great rapids. Guide was very knowledgeable and skilled as he directed the raft. Raft Masters online check-in helped expedite the process. When I needed to make a change and called the office they were able to quickly update the online form.... More

We were happy we chose Raftmasters. Having rafted only one time before, we were well prepped as to what to bring and they did not charge for their waterproof gear. Whitey was an awesome guide and made it a great experience for all!

We took the Intermediate trip and should have taken the beginner. Our athletic group all over 21 were overwhelmed and tossed about for the 1 1/2-2 hour ride. We had two Go-Pro's going through out our ride and can only watch it with the sound off because Whitey yelled at out through out the entire trip. Out of our group... More

Raftin_Junkie, Owner at Raft Masters, responded to this review

I am sorry to hear that you were not happy with your trip. It is not uncommon for first time rafters to do an intermediate section especially when they are over 21 and athletic. It is very difficult form the companies point of view to guide groups to the appropriate tour when talking to them over the phone. Every group... More
