So much fun! Have done 2 intermediate trips this season. Loved every second of it! The guides are true professionals. Not just a "summer job" to them.

8 of us went for my bachelor party and split into 2 groups of 4. Our guides, Neil and Jacob, were phenomenal. Everyone we met was incredibly nice and helpful. Could not recommend enough!

Since our kids are under 12 (10 and 9), we had to do the beginners white water rafting so I wasn’t sure what to expect. We booked online, filled out the waivers online and arrived 20 min before our time. The staff is so outgoing,...More

After a near drowning as a child, I was very scared to go rafting, but I did the beginner run and had a BLAST! Great guides and super friendly owner. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Went with three friends and had a great time. Forms filled out online. Good raft leaders and Kristoff was an excellent guide. Did the intermediate raft and felt safe the whole time. My only complaint is that it was over too soon.

I’ve gone rafting with a lot of different outfits and Liquid Descent is by far my favorite. The guides do a great job of having fun while taking safety very seriously. Thanks to our guide, Sunshine, on this particular trip!

Response from Alan_LiquidDescent | Property representative |
The clear creek trip is more exciting with Rapids and splashes so the kids will probably enjoy it more. The upper Colorado is more scenic but it is more or less a float trip with minimal Rapids. Either trip is a great time!
