I cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Glenwood Canyon Rafting! Everything was amazing, start to finish. The BBQ lunch they serve is top-notch (try the pulled pork), the check-in staff is friendly and helpful, and our rafting guide was fantastic--very skilled and knowledgeable about the area. My husband and I and our two kids (8 & 10 years old) had a blast on the river! We felt very safe the entire time, but still got a good ride on the rapids. Highly recommended!

Had a great time with my oldest daughter rafting down the Colorado River. We did the afternoon trip and the class 3 and 4 rapids was a great treat. Our Guide, Mac, was a great guy who gave not only good direction, but information about the area. Would definitely like to do this again with this company.

Excellent experience. We had 10 people with 5 of them under 8. Ken was our guide and was very safe with our kids and made it really fun.

Top notch facility.

I was terrified out of my mind--my family all wanted to go white water rafting. I had gone as a teenager but my husband had never been. We ended up a group of 7 on our raft, plus our amazing guide Connor. We had the best time!!! The best time of year to do this is in June, so plan accordingly--the water is high enough to make the most of the rapids. The water was cold (not as cold as my first experience, fortunately--about 50 degrees though!). It's advisable to wear polyester or rayon-knit clothing--cotton-blends don't wick the water as well so you'll stay cold longer. What made it nice was that the bulk of the rapids are in the early part of your journey so you're not in them the entire ride. Timewise, most of the time was actually in calm water--but the rapids were pretty rough. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and about the rafting itself as well. We even stopped at a hot water spring along the way! I wouldn't advise this for families with very young children, but mid-elementary age on, they'll probably be fine. We did the half day, so our day started around 9 am and ended around 12-12:30. We stayed at the Glenwood Suites across the street so we didn't have to go far once we were soaked.
Our one regret: I didn't think we'd be able to use a waterproof camera but since many of the waters (time-wise) were actually calm, it would've been a wise choice to bring.
