This was our first whitewater rafting trip and we had a blast! It was top notch customer service. Our rafting guide was very friendly, patient, and was a wealth of knowledge on activities in the area. He gave great advice on places to stay, restaurants to eat at, etc. I would highly recommend!!!

Amazing, customized experience. Myself and my father were accompanied by Julie and Jill for a full day in Boulder Canyon. Julie picked us up from our hotel in downtown Denver and then we made the short drive to the Canyon. We were complete beginners so Jill explained all the equipment she had for us, took us up the rock and showed us how she set the ropes up and and then we started to climb! Everything was explained super well and we felt safe the whole time- there was always someone at the bottom belaying you and shouting up tips. We then headed out to a lake for lunch- sandwiches, fruit, chips, powerade (& beer) and then finished the day off with some traversing over rapids before getting driven back to the hotel.

Overall super cool experience and after it I'm really keen to do some more rock climbing and come back to do another tour with this company when I'm back in the country.

Also... they provide a ton of water/snacks AND take pictures of you that they provide to you via a link.

Sandy was very accomodating in finding us a tour guide on a last minute request.
Alex was an awesome tour guide. He informed us all about the area during our hike and ensured we enjoyed our hike. He kept us safe and hydrated. We would highly recommend Alex and Colorado Wilderness Guides and Rides.

Josh is the man. We connected 3-4 months prior to the hike and I asked him to put together an epic hiking experience as part of a mid-year leadership meeting. 4 AM pickup in Boulder and hiked 16 miles across Rocky Mountain National Park. Josh is a great leader, clearly a seasoned guide, and it was the highlight of our trip to CO. The client experience is something that Josh and his team value and they delivered from A-Z. We are already in talks for a trip back in 19' to do a 14'er. Highly recommend for anyone who is looking to get out of their comfort zone and accomplish something big as a team.

I was so scared to take this rafting trip but it was probably one of the most fun, exhilarating things I've ever done. We had a party of 15 and every person was so glad they went. The guides were helpful and did a great job explaining what was needed to make the trip successful. I would highly recommend it.
