During our road trip to Colorado, I specifically booked a stop in Gunnison for us, to try river rafting with Scenic River Tours, on the basis of other reviews on Tripadvisor. It proved to be as good as we hoped. We chose the 3 hour trip, which included the rapids in the river park (not too scary for newbies but... More

What a great rafting company. I was nervous having rafted before out east. All the staff were great, calm, assuring, the guide Jeremy was incredible. It was just he and I and my two teenage kids. He deftly got us down the river and was just great fun. Owner and gals getting us geared up also very helpful. Everyone was... More

This was our 8th summer of rafting with Senic River Tours and once again we had a great time. On our way to Taylor Park, we stopped by to add more people to our reservation and before we could walk up to the building, the Owner met us in the parking lot and took care of everything. I can't say... More

This group is really organized. I loved the way they lined everyone up to put in life jackets and then they tighten them for you so you know they are on correctly. Huston was our guide and we were super glad to hear he had so much experience since we were with our young boys and it was our first... More

Day 1 we did the all day family on the Taylor River class 1 and 2 because we had an eight year old. 9-4 with great lunch and two stops along the river including a swim hole where kids could shoot the white water. Great time. Our first time on rafts and white water. Guide Anjie outstanding in every way.... More

My friend and I took the 2-hr Class I/II raft trip this past week. Upon arrival the staff was friendly and so welcoming. Our guide, Angie was amazing and provided tons of great information about the river and Gunnison area. The rapids were just right for the young children as well as older adults. You didn't have to paddle unless... More

We loved our rafting trip (the Upper Taylor Shorty) with Scenic River Tours. We are a family of 4 and we had our own raft with our guide, Houston. He was very knowledgeable about the river and he was fun and personable. The whole experience was well organized and pretty seamless. We have no complaints. Next time, we are going... More

Last week we had a very large group of college students and faculty (approx. 70 people) raft with Scenic River Tours. Several folks in the group had never rated before (3 in my boat alone). I was extremely impressed how quickly they got the group setup with helmets, neoprene socks and got our life vests correctly on all of us.... More

We had a great 3 hour raft trip on the Upper Taylor River on Friday July 29, 2016 with 12 people and 2 rafts. Our guides Heather Bradford and Dustin Eldridge were first class and great people to lead us. I strongly recommend them!
