We just rode in the raft or paddled a rubber kayak down the river. Meals were good and plentiful and the scenery was inspiring. Give yourself a... More

I took my twin 6 year-old boys and my 10 year-old daughter on the 3 night trip starting at Ladore, had a wonderful time with the whole group and guides were wonderful. Plan to do the same trip next year again.

My crew took the day trip down the green river and it was FABULOUS!!! None of us had ever been rafting before, and weren't really sure what to expect. What we got was adventure, laughter, lessons on how NOT to get back into the raft, and some fantastic memories. Yeah, it's a little pricey for a party of six, but... More

Four of us (2 grandparents, an 11 yr. old granddaughter and her Japanese friend) just finished a 4 day Gates of Lodore rafting trip with DRE. We rafted (of course), hiked, paddle boarded, took out the double ducky and single ducky rafts and floated down the river in our life vests besides eating deliciously-prepared food. Give them a try--bet you... More

This was an amazing group of people. From the first handshake hello, to the warm farewell. DRE loves what they do and it shows. The attention to detail is unmatched, they think of everything. Our children were a little timid at first, but were made feel at ease right away. Our guide Tyler was stellar, he made them feel safe... More

Great company!! This was our second trip down the green river with DRE, 4 days and 3 nights down the Gates of Ladore to Split Mountain. Jen and Tyler are amazing at organizing before you get on water, and I can't say enough about the guides both trips, some of whom were with us both times, as well. Our large... More

Just returned from a four day Lodore trip with my husband and two boys, 10 and 13. We had an absolutely amazing time. No detail was overlooked, guides were fantastic and safety and professionalism were priorities while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend DRE for your river expedition, top notch company, great people!

Our KOA recommended this local business for a white water rafting trip. Booking was easy and staff were all very friendly. Our guide Cody brought everything we needed including a picnic lunch. Beautiful float with a few white water portions to liven things up. Great experience.
