For the life of me I can not remember our jeep tour guides name but he was amazing! We wanted to see wildlife, flowers, mountains and lakes and he accomplished all of this beyond our expectation - we even saw a Moose!! Our tour was about 5 hours long and it was filled with fun. Our guide was full of information and able to educate us as well. he knew the area so well that he took us into locations only a guide would know. My son who is 9 has not stopped talking about our trip and wants to do it again when we return to Vail. I highly recommend a jeep tour - there is no other way to experience so much of this beautiful part of our country!! The company was also great to deal with when booking, gave us snacks, drinks and just made it great!

We used Timberline Tours for a rafting trip on the Shoshone. The time on the river was awesome. The entire experience was very good. They picked us up at our hotel, provided all the necessary safety gear and accessories, the guides and drivers were very engaged and attentive to all of us. We will use them again.

My husband and I took our 4 kids - ages 4,6,8, and 10 on the Shoshone trip through Glenwood Canyon. I was nervous to take our four year old, but they picked me and my daughter up a mile down stream from the drop off point, which misses the class III rapids. It was perfect for our whole family - the scenery is spectacular - have always enjoyed it when driving, but able to fully appreciate it from the raft. And the rafting level was perfect for our kids' ages - I did not worry for their safety. Furthermore, the staff was so nice - everybody from our driver to the guide, Tyler. Would do it again in a heartbeat!!!!

The highlight of our trip to Colorado this summer was our white water rafting experience with Timberline Tours. I don't know who had more fun, my husband and I or our 12 and 10 year old children! I was impressed by the Timberline Tours guides who were extremely experienced and combined a high level of safety with a whole lot of excitement. Our guide was Shawn, and his guidance and encouragement made it a team building experience for our family as we worked together to navigate through the Brown's Canyon section on the Arkansas River. We had a lovely lunch included and with the travel time involved it was a full day of activity. I cannot recommend this tour company highly enough.

We took the private jeep tour with our family of 5 up to a huge clearing where the kids got out to run around and we enjoyed the views. This was definitely not a thrill tour (which we didn't want) but the views were great. If you want to get right into and up the mountain and do not want to drive yourself this is the way to go. We were picked up at our hotel and returned to the hotel exactly on schedule. He even brought us right through some of the smaller towns off the eaten path. There was water and snacks provided when we stopped (only there were so many mosquitos it was hard to hang out there long so bring bug spray!) My youngest is 3 and we put the car seat in the jeep and it was great for him. If you want a reliable, knowledgeable tour guide these are your people!
