We had a blast on our float with Turtle Tubing! We went early in the season on a weekday and ended up with the bus to ourselves for a group of 6. We enjoyed getting the party started with a song led by our bus driver, Dave. The staff getting us in to the floats was wonderful. Danielle hung out on a paddle board on the river and checked in on us a few times to make sure everything was good. The tubes they provided were awesome! They’re huge and comfortable! I highly recommend taking a float with Turtle Tubing!

I wanted to surprise my hubby on his birthday since we had planned going to a show with friends. Customer service was awesome, they work with you after you make your reservation Online so you get what you really wanted. We had the best experience, driver and bartender were so nice too, drinks were on point and really good prices! I will definitely have them in mind for next party!!!!

We did the 2 hour Dotsero float in June while on vacation in Colorado, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. When we got there, we were met by the owner's sister and her sweet daughter. She provided great instruction and tips for what we needed to do. They met us on the river closer to our end spot and were just so friendly and hospitable. The float was fairly easy with our 8 and 11 year old kids who had never been on a float trip before. We got a kick out of the small rapids at the end.

I highly recommend booking your trip with Turtle Tubing and would definitely do it again if we're in the area during the summer.

Really loved the trip down the river but with the spread of COVID, our group was pretty concerned. Only 1 of the 2 guides had masks on when they put us in the river. When we got out, although we paid for a trip back to our cars, we waited over 30 minutes for a bus that never arrived. VIP busses kept filling up, and our ride was eventually obtained only because a member of our group pushed for us to get on a bus that wasn't ours. (Apparently our driver couldn't be found). None of the bus drivers had masks on for the duration of our wait, and the final bus we joined was a "party bus" (totally fine and we knew it getting on) but we were the ONLY ones on a bus of 30-40 people with masks on. Please, please, please REQUIRE passengers AND drivers to wear masks! We didn't understand why 1: we paid for a ride and couldn't get one and 2: why no one was wearing masks. We will arrange our own rides and tubes next time.

Per their website they reiterated how important it is to be on time for your float trip…….**Please DO NOT COME LATE. This may result in shuttle delays and affect your float time** We were standing at the launch pad 5 mins before our float time and waited 30 mins for the guy to show up with our rafts. All while trying to entertain young children in the blazing hot sun. We signed up online so they knew what time our trip was but yet were not prepared. There was a HUGE group that showed up for their trip that had a start time 30 mins after ours and launched after us. Yet when we got to the take out point we then had to wait on a very hot bus (non air conditioned…no roof so sun heated up seats to where you couldn’t sit on them) for another 30 mins after the float trip for the rest of that group to finish before they would take us back to our vehicle. Not to mention during the float trip the instructor kept telling us we weren’t moving (trying to push us down the river faster) when we were floating along at a good pace. We paddled when we needed but weren’t going to paddle the whole way. It is called a “float” trip. Very pushy.

Rented a tiki bus for a trip up and back to Red Rocks for the Jimmy Buffett concert. Pictures show a bus decked out like a tiki bar with bamboo, woven mats and tiki gods and was to have a stocked bar. The bus was to pick our group up at 6 pm. The bus didn’t arrive until 6:40, 40 minutes late! The bus only had a some bamboo slats around the makeshift bar and fake woven mat look, but no other decorations…no tiki gods or any other type of beach decorations and no stocked bar, nothing, nada…not even bottled water! We did see one of their other busses in the Red Rocks parking lot and it was decorated more like a tiki bar, including tiki gods. I was totally let down and very disappointed! Also because we were late getting there, we were stuck in a very long line to get in. When we did get in we didn’t have enough time to get anything to drink or tour t-shirts before the concert started, so we missed the first few songs and never did get the tour t-shirts. Basically, this was just a fiasco.

Thoroughly enjoyed our cruise down the river- highly recommend taking lots of water and snacks- and sunscreen. This was my second time and the pace of the river was slow, so we were out on the water longer. Just need to be prepared. Appreciated the good communication and text the night before. Staff was friendly!

Our favorite mode of transportation in the Vail Valley! Shane + crew are the perfect combination of professional and fun. Whether it’s for a round trip into town for the night or a day trip to the hot springs - they make our annual friends trip even better. Affordable per person rates and top notch customer service. Couldn’t recommend more!

The owner and all the guides are amazing. Incredible experience. Very seamless. They are very accommodating, patient, informative, experienced, and FUN! Went for my bachelorette party and had a blast. We recommend brining a little picnic to share with your friends on the tube.

We waited over 1 hour and a half to show up at the dock. They never even contacted us or the other people who came to let us know that they were unable to attend. We got a refund 2 days later, but I think they really could work on communication
