“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We took their half-day Intermediate Class III/IV trip on Clear Creek and had a blast. We were all first time white water rafters - my wife and I and our two kids (11 and 14) - and the staff were excellent in getting us set up. They were very thorough with their safety instruction while still exuding a laid back atmosphere. Once on the water, our guide Zack was funny and gave us some great thrills. His "suicide spins" were great! Definitely use these folks if you are in this area!

“So much fun!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

My husband and I and our 2 teenage kids went for an 8 am intermediate raft trip. At first we were all freezing but we quickly warmed up and had a wonderful time. It ended up being a great time of day to take the trip since afternoons often rain. Our tour guide was great even though he fell out of the raft once. They do an excellent job with safety but have an overall laid back atmosphere. One of the most fun experiences of our vacation.

“Best way to get wet!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I came into town from California to visit friends in Denver, they suggested white water rafting as something fun to do and they could not have been more right! Liquid Descent was awesome! All the guides were funny and cute ;) and great at what they do! If you're looking to someone to take you down Clear Creek these are the people to do it, great attitudes and definitely safety oriented with keeping it light and fun. If you can get Peter, he was our guide he was funny, and definitely a favorite among the ladies :)

“Don't Pass This Up!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Went to Liquid Descent with the family to celebrate my mom's 50th. There were four in our group and we were paired with a couple. Our guide, Peter, was awesome & made it a group experience. This was our first time rafting, and he made us feel prepared/safe/aware the whole 6.5 miles down the river. About half way, all the rafts pulled off to the side so everyone could climb a small platform to jump into the river. From there you float back to your raft. Incredible experience, reasonably priced, and something everyone can enjoy! I liked that they had water shoes for rent, they were only $3! Would definitely do this again.

“Great experience with fun talented guides”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Went onto the intermediate raft ride in Clear Creek. Loads of fun!! My kids loved it so much that they were willing to give up another vacation adventure to do this trip again.
Great group of guides- especially John!
Loved that wet suit and/ or jacket was free. Water socks were only extra charge if you needed it-$3.
