Such a fun and entertaining adventure

We had a great experience rafting on the Poudre river in July 2016. We had a 7 and 9 year old with us and the guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating.

We are a family of 7; dad and mom and kids ranging from 15-24. We LOVED our rafting experience! It was the first time of rafting for all of us and our guide was amazing! He was patient yet knew how to direct us when things needs to be done. I wish I could remember his name, but you can... More

A little disorganized for the check in and preparation. Get your gear, watch a video, make sure everything is secure. Then hop on a bus for a 20 minute ride (our case)up to the put in. Unload the rafts - load up - learn how to paddle together. All of this is important and if your mind is made up... More

We had an awesome time rafting with Allison as our guide! The weather was great and the river ran pretty fast even though in August it was on the low side. It was still fun and exciting! We wore synthetic rather than cotton T's and shorts and also water shoes/sneakers as the website suggested. Worked well as we dried off... More

George was our guide. We traveled from Texas. I highly recommend this in August in the afternoon. Water is still chilly. Wear the proper gear! Afternoon brought a cool gentle shower on first trip down. Second trip was sunshine. George was the best! I don't know what the others charge, but we paid a fair price of about $55.00 each... More

To be fair, the water level was low, so I knew not to expect excitement. That was not the problem. The issue is that the guides had completely checked out. They could have cared less about us. They barely greeted us, were aloof, talked among themselves. The lead guide's feigned enthusiasm and stupid jokes were really annoying. Because it was... More

I am so sorry to hear that your experience with us was not what you hoped it to be. We pride ourselves on being professional and I will address our staff about your message. It is unacceptable to management and ownership if it seemed that our staff had checked out and that they were just going through the motions. There... More

Our guide, Eric, was very knowledgeable and friendly. They had fleece and jackets that we could borrow at no extra cost. It was so much fun. Next time, I'll do the harder one. Love it!

I was terrified to do this because I am scared of water (not so much now)and I can't swim. But, wow! I have zero regrets. Out of all the activities and fun we had including camping, hiking and horseback riding, THIS was our favorite. Our guide, Eric, was very professional. He also had a great sense of humor which helped... More

A Wanderlust Adventure was the only Outfitter that would allow our 6 year old to ride. I called all the rest and they would only take 7 year olds even though he had been before. They also offered a late season discount for all. We went on a Taste of Whitewater guided by Derek. He made the trip fun for... More

My husband and boys (ages 7 and 10) and I had a blast rafting. Our guide Eric did a great job providing the proper level of adventure for my fearless boys, and his attitude, experience and sense of humor made it a fun, yet safe trip. We went early August and the water was low with several class 3 rapids... More
