I recently went to Raft Masters and Colorado Springs with my high school choir. We got up one morning to find that it was 47 degrees outside, when we're used to 90 degree Texas weather, and we're going rafting. This turned out to be everyone's favorite thing on the entire trip. I had rafted before, but no one else in... More

We had an amazing trip down the river. My husband and I have only been rafting once before, but with great instructions from our guide Abel, we managed to make it all the way without "swimming". Would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for fantastic organisation. All equipment is provided. We chose to wear our own sandals and clothes... More

We went at the end of September during off season. Other companies were already closed - so glad we found Raft Masters. It was great having the river to ourselves. Beautiful views and scenery. The guide was patient, professional and fun.They include all the gear you could possibly need. One of the best experiences we had while in Colorado.

Amazing! We recommend you request Ozzy as your guide. He was a great coach on the raft! It was our first time rafting and he was able to bring two groups of three that had never met together to work as a team. He is from Canon City and had a great depth of knowledge of the river and local... More

Took the wife on a jeep tour with Allen today. Nice chill in the air at the start and we were given a excellent tour of the mountain and gold mine areas of Victor and Cripple Creek. Allen was very informative about the history, local lore, wildlife / plant life. The lunch in Victor was very good. The ride back... More
