Rafting in Colorado

We are in the heart of our rafting season and have been getting a bunch of amazing feedback from our guests. See what everyone is saying:

“We all had a great experience. The guides were exceptional and paid special attention to make sure the kids enjoyed the day. They are already talking about coming back to try the level IV and V rafting trips. With several companies to choose from, AVA stands out with its commitment to service and safety.” -Gery Feront

“Liked that Forest gave us information and details about the river and area around Kremmling. He also pointed out animals and told stories about the area. He did a great job. We will be talking about this trip for years to come. :)” -anonymous

“We had a great time our guides were a lot of fun. They made the time very enjoyable. We have already recommended this to other people!” -anonymous

“Staff, all very pleasant. Guide, “Mowgli” very interactive and entertaining; the rest of the staff in the group, too were entertaining and watchful of all participants in the general group. Trip, would be nice to know the water levels and how it effects the river (releases/general flow, etc.). Grounds are being updated/improved, so….in progress of refreshing. Thanks for the day!” -anonymous

“Our guides were GREAT. Shawn and Rick did a great job, they were great with everyone, helping people that needed it, and giving the more adventurous fun ideas. They also gave us a nice history lesson of Idaho Springs and other things to do in town. We really appreciated their effort and will definitely return.” -anonymous

“We had the best tour guide ever! Myself and my two friends had a blast with Taylor rafting and ziplining. I will definitely come back to AVA again. We are interested in the 3 day raft!” – Donica Pitkins

 “We were welcomed by a very friendly staff and the check-in procedure was simple and hassle-free. Loved having the variety of gear available for our use. We had a party of 10 and you accommodated us by putting 4 in one raft and 6 in the other. Our guides on the two rafts, Miller and Mitch were wonderful!!!!! We look forward to another trip in the near future.” -anonymous

“My husband was extremely nervous. Actually all of us were. Lyndsey and Jamie were outstanding. They explained everything to us to reassure us. If we do it again. We won’t do it without them being our guides.” -anonymous

“Our guides were helpful, thorough, clear, and encouraging. They prepared us well for all conditions and possible scenarios to put us all at ease. Halfway through the trip we were convinced we were all experts (it was everyone’s fist time rafting) by the reinsuring remark of our guide Weber. it was the experience I had hoped for and envisioned when I booked the trip. We loved the adventure! Every staff member encountered was kind, pleasant and friendly. kUDOS AVA!!!! We would highly recommend you to all.” – Gail Tripoli

“Terry was our guide and he was great. He balanced safety with fun. He asked us if we wanted the easy way down or more rapids. He interacted with our teenage kids and made sure they had a blast. Nice Job Terry.” -anonymous

“We had two groups, rafting & ziplining – both adventures were amazing and the staff was incredible. This is the third year we have worked with AVA and it is a great company and process.” -anonymous

“We had an excellent guide. Personable, knowldegedgeable and made our trip very smooth. He stayed calm and kept us calm when we were a little frightened.” -anonymous

“Our experience was fantastic – from beginning to end. The very best part was our guide, Angie. She was proficient on teaching us how to row and even gave great commentary about the area. When we come back, we will definitely ask for Angie! Best. Guide. Ever.” -anonymous

“Rick and JJ were great…we all enjoyed the zip adventure and will recommend it to our friends.” -anonymous

“We loved it! It was the best day of our vacation. Perfect day and Justin was a awesome guide! The kids loved the experience, the food was great and I really appreciated the information Justin shared with us. Thank you for a fun day!!” -anonymous
