Rafted Memorial Day weekend 2013. Four adults, 2 kids. 6 year old and 8 year old. Extremely well organized and it was clear our safety was their #1 concern. Our guide was wonderful and shared lots of stories about the local area. The equipment was clean and it was nice to be fitted in splash suits and not the wet suits that we've rafted in before. Those can just be nasty and who wants to wear someone else's wet suit? ewwwww! The facility was clean, organized and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. Photography company they work with is amazing and we got a great disc of photos from our trip. They even discounted it as they could not get the video portion of the trip. That is honesty, right there. We would have never known the difference and probably would have paid the same even without the standard video portion. Highly recommend this company. We have rafted over 20 times in the past (Brown's Canyon, Numbers, Clear Creek) and this is the best we have ever experienced!!! Kudos! We will be back!

We rafted the Colorado River and had the BEST guide... Ken was so fun and friendly... as well as very knowledgeable about "history" of Glenwood.. I would bring my children back to raft w/ Ken... We felt safe with Ken. All the staff were very friendly and helpful!

The Zip lining was great and we had the best instructors... they were funny and kind cute too... :o)

Thanks for the great trip to everyone at Glenwood Canyon Resort...
Sincerely,
The Distel's

Well-organized team provided a great sampling of Colorado River whitewater rapids in spectacular Glenwood Canyon through five drops in a 2.5 mile section below Shoshone Dam. No time for drifting and dreaming because the "Double Shoshone" trip offers two runs through the same rapids so the crew can get it right. After the first run the raft is pulled out, trailered and relaunched for a second trip through the gorge. The whole adventure including outfitting with life jackets and rain gear and helmets if desired at the GCRI base in West Glenwood, van ride upriver and simultaneous river safety lecture, unload, put-in, navigation instruction, wild ride, repeat and return to base all in 3.5 hours. Ask for 13-year veteran oarsman, Kate for an exciting and safe ride. Action on the river is easily photographed from shore and a Rapid Image photographer records a couple dozen photos of each raft to make memorable images available to the participants for an additional fee.

I guess I was hoping for bit more in the way of white water, which I know they don't really control. The company is well run, the guides were great, everything got off on time (which is a minor miracle on a rafting trip), the river is beautiful but pretty tame. It's great for a family trip but if you're looking for something exciting I would try a different stretch of water.

Our family: myself 60, wife 56, daughters 18 and 20 had a great time last summer. The river was flooding and very fast! We felt safe with our knowledgeable guides. The staff all were very friendly and helpful. We have been rafting before on other rivers and highly recommend this trip.
