“Great operation and guides”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

My husband and I are experienced river runners, but this was the first experience for our six and eight-year-old girls (each about 50lbs). We really wanted them to experience whitewater on a short trip and from the height of a raft before we attempted to take them on our multi-day kayak trips. I was slightly concerned as more than one operator in the area had basically told me I was crazy to want to take kids this small in class III rapids. I needn't have worried. Our guide expertly maneuvered us through the Shoshone rapids and by the third major rapid our girls were loving it. In fact, our six-year-old even got brave enough to ride bull through some of the class II rapids. Their only complaint was there weren't enough rapids at the end of the trip. Glenwood Canyon Rafting was great to work with from start to finish, and our guide was fantastic. I highly recommend a trip with these guys.

“Best Experience!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The Glenwood Cayon Rafting Inc. staff was amazing! Unfortunately four people had to cancel in our group, but Pat was so accommodating. They had great service from the very beginning! The price was very reasonable for the half day trip. Our guide, Niko was awesome! He knew exactly what he was doing, it was very comforting to know we were in good hands. The rafting trip was better than I ever expected it to be! We will be coming back for the full day rafting trip at GCR hopefully next summer!

“Best bang for your Buck $”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Great rafting experience. Took all my kids (little boys too 5yo) and did class III rapids. The price was about half of everywhere else I called. Garret out guide was so good to my boys. We had a blast! Thanks for the memory.

“Great rafting trip!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We enjoyed a great afternoon rafting down the Colorado River with Glenwood Canyon Rafting. The check in staff was friendly and efficient. We had 12 family members, ages 8-76, and they accommodated all of us in 2 rafts. Our guide, Calvin, was fantastic- naturalist, guide, and a comedian rolled into one. Even the teenagers loved it! We would highly recommend this company!

“Highlight of our trip to Colorado!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

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!
