We went on a half day whitewater rafting trip for part of our Bachelorette Weekend trip to Glenwood and had an blast! Our guide went out of his way to make sure everyone in our group felt comfotable. He even wore a bow tie for the occasion! All the guides were nice and seemed to really enjoy what they were doing. I would defiantly recommend Whitewater Rafting LLC to anyone looking for a fun activity to do with the family or group!

we had a large group of 8 just by ourselves , so we had our own raft and guide.. My son James has been rafting with you before, but this was a family get together of sorts as we are out of towners ... we decided at my sons request to do the white water rafting... well, I think it was one of the most enjoyable days we had... being a large family just by ourselves, we are what you could call a handful... we had a terrific guide who at all times made us feel safe and confident about our trip.. we went on sat june 23 for the full day trip.. we had a young fellow name Connor.. He was so concerned about us, and all feeling comfortable at all times,he was great at explaining what we needed to do and was so educated and informative,,,for such a young man he made us all confident in our experience.... we had a wonderful time and will definetly return,

hopefully this wonderful young man will be available ... Kudos to your staff ,everyone we encountered was terrific !!! sincerly, Debra McBride

I took the full day trip on the Colorado with my girls ages 8 and 12. We all had a fantastic time. In the morning we had some get-wet class III rapids, which we navigated without difficulty thanks to our excellent guide. Later in the morning there were some nice spots to get out and swim, and even a small hot springs that you could sit in so long as you could stand the smell. There were almost no dead spots on the river that we had to power through. Lunch was hearty and satisfying (though not so much for my kids who are vegetarian). The afternoon was a bit milder, so we switched out the 15' raft for 1- and 2-person inflatable kayaks. It was my 12-year-old's first time in a ducky, but she got the hang of it quickly. At the end of the day the kids were exhausted but you couldn't wipe the grin off their faces. I'd definitely recommend the full day trip if you want a nice, relaxing day on the river, but they have a wide range of trips for those who want more (or even less) adventure. I've been rafting a lot and Whitewater Rafting LLC definitely rates among the best companies.

We had never been rafting before and we had a great time. We went on the 3 hour trip and think this was more than enough time. I think the 6 hour trip would have been too boring. The river is a bit down right now and only had a few Class 3 rapids, but we still had a great time. Most of the trip was not on the rapids. You were just floating down the river on a relaxing float trip. Our guide was great and pointed out things as we went along.

We have taken several rafting trips down the Colorado River using Whitewater Rafting, LLC. I don't think you will find a better rafting outfitter around. They are super friendly, very accomodating and trustworthy. Young or old, they will make sure you have a spectacular time.
We have had the pleasure of having Caleb and Solomon for our guides. Both are terrific. Not only will you have a great time rafting but you will also learn a bit of history about the area. We highly recommend Whitewater Rafting. We will be back soon to do it again!
