    Super fun and relaxing! Our guide was excellent… easy conversation in transport and on the river. Plus, he had fun facts and knowledge that kept the tour interesting. We got lucky and had a great group of mixed ages with us, all skill levels and loved a good water gun fight! The heat was not a deterrent one bit! Thanks, Seth, we had a great time on the Colorado. Hope we see you on a California ski slope one day!

    Absolutely awesome tour. My girlfriend (21) and myself (23) LOVED this trip. Was a PERFECT relaxation trip with beautiful views, plenty excitement, and GREAT commentary from our tour guide, Reid. Guy was hysterical and full of information. Got to see mountain sheep, hybrid coyotes, rare birds, and again BEAUTIFUL views. 10/10 recommend. Going to do the full day tour next time! Thank you Reid and the outfitter company! See you soon!
