Awesome 4th of July rafting trip! We felt very safe with our guide, Joe, who was knowledgeable about the river and gave clear commands. He was personable too and our raft had a great time.

We had a great time on the creek. Our guide Shawn did a great job and we always felt safe. Wet suits and jackets were provided along with life jackets. We did use the optional shoes. Would highly recommend this company!

Staff is young and energetic. The area is great to visit. The water is cold and the intermediate course was perfect. This company is organized and perfect for large groups. This was my family's second trip.

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!
