    Excellent trip. Best part of our Colorado adventure. Well organized and professional team. Left on time. The guides make it a safe and fun trip. Beware of those pesky rocks lurking in the water! Maddie the AQUA Dog was amazing too.

    We had a really fun time with our granddaughters. Andy was our guide, and he was very knowledgeable and enjoyable. We even stopped on a tiny island on the river so Andy could free a young goose that was all tangled up in fishing line!

    Just a wonderful overall experience! Rebecca was our guide. This was the second trip we have done with her we enjoy her so much! She was great personally, let a young girl sit on the bow and instructed her how to stay safe in that position, and chatted with the rest of us as we navigated the river!
