We did a fun half day raft trip on the upper Colorado with river guide Jake ; another raft was with Scott and river dog Eddie. It was a lot of fun; mostly relaxing with a few thrills thrown in! The drive getting there was really interesting too and April told us a lot about the area. Even though it... More

Bus ride was very fun and informative, tour guide was awesome. Very knowledgeable of the area. Let us stop and take pictures along the way. Great rafting with lots of fun and lots of leisure along the way. The only thing I would change is to do the all day option next time. Can not wait to go back!

My husband and I rafted with Scott and Eddie the River Dog last week. It was an amazing experience. Scott, or guide, knew a lot about the Colorado River and it's history. He also took the time to point out Wildlife along the way. We can't wait to return with our kids!

Everyone in the company is extremely friendly and willing to accommodate every need. The lunch included was excellent and sitting at a picnic spot along the river made the day just perfect! I highly recommend this company, along with... More

The ride out to the river was very informative as Bill shared with us his knowledge about Colorado as we traveled. As we arrived to the river, I immediately knew... More

Scott Klein does a great job - he took me on the river for the first time in 2011, at very high water for the Upper Sea, and we survived and then some. I'd recommend Paddle Colorado to anyone.

Our family of 6 had a great time on the full day trip with Scott, River Dog Eddie, and Alex. This was Alex's maiden voyage for her certification. She did a fabulous job. We enjoyed dive rock, participating in the "rodeo", lunch, the scenery, and everything else involved with the trip. We would highly recommend this company. From start to... More

What a great time we had!!! The trip went off flawlessly and April, Bill, Scott and Eddie couldn't have been better. The trip down the Colorado was peaceful, but had some good rapids to keep you on your toes. A great trip for beginners and a family to hang out together. The only disappointment for our group was that Scott... More
