The group at Downstream Adventures are a blast! They make you feel "safe" (especially if you're a first timer). They are friendly and funny. Our guide was Scotty, and he made everyone in the boat feel like long time friends and let everyone have fun and enjoy the experience!

We had a superior time. It's a small operation but very efficient and professional. They provide all equipment (some for rent) which is convenient as well. I would definitely go with them in the future.

Our guide was fantastic - personable and very safety oriented. Obviously loves river rafting and being a guide.

The business operation was small and made us feel like we had more personal attention than some of the larger outfits in the area. Everyone was cheery and fun to interact with. The photos were terrific!

The river section we did (Class 1&2) was a very memorable one for our boys aged 6 & 8.

Had plans in Boulder after rafting trip so they came up with a plan to park our car at the starting point and make a special stop on the way back to drop us at our car. Also suggested a route to take to avoid Sunday afternoon traffic into Denver. It was a beautiful drive through the mountains and we made it to Boulder in plenty of time. The personal attention was amazing. Will definitely book with them again in the future.
