My two teenage kids and I went on the novice rafting trip. Parker was our guide and he was awesome. He gave great directions, had a fantastic sense of humor, and made the trip fun and memorable. This was the first time my kids had been white water rafting and they both want to go again.

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.
