We had so much fun! Our raft guide Brianna was the best. She literally pulled my daughter out of the water! So strong and did a great job! Please give her rookie of the year!

Well, did she put your daughter in the water or was that a voluntary swim? I mean, for rookie of the year and all. Thank you for the review!

Because it was late in the season, the river was low, but the trip was still fun. Sid, our guide, was awesome! She made the trip not just good, but great!

Horribel communication

They didn't even tell viator that they calcelled the event. Claimed to me i would get a refund from viator in one to two months. The issue only got resolved once I called viator. Despite the fact that this rafting company claimed to me they would call viator to issue a refund on my behalf.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2020
I am sorry to hear your frustration but our records show many attempts to contact you. Perhaps you were travelling? We work very closely with Viator and are a top rated provider for them. For transparency so others can judge for themselves I am posting the digital transaction record below: Saturday night at 7:46 pm you booked a raft trip. Monday morning we called to tell you the trip was tentative due to COVID-19 restrictions as we waited to hear from our local authorities. Wednesday we called to cancel with you and Viator. Thursday someone from your party called to ad to the reservation. We informed them that it was cancelled and to please let you know since we hadn't been able to get through to you. Sunday Viator confirmed the cancellation. Mountain Waters Rafting welcomes constructive criticism but I do feel we are being blamed for something outside of our control. I think it is unfair to a staff who prides themselves on half a decade of excellent customer service together to get a review such as this.

We went rafting with the Mountain Rafting Co and had a wonderful time. We went on the 4 hour trip. We took our 11 year old grandson and 7 year old granddaughter with us. They had a fabulous time. The guides are more than fantastic. There was a group that had children a lot younger than ours. This is totally family friendly.. We even went on the Mesa Verde tour and had a wonderful time.

Excellent trip. Best part of our Colorado adventure. Well organized and professional team. Left on time. The guides make it a safe and fun trip. Beware of those pesky rocks lurking in the water! Maddie the AQUA Dog was amazing too.

We had a really fun time with our granddaughters. Andy was our guide, and he was very knowledgeable and enjoyable. We even stopped on a tiny island on the river so Andy could free a young goose that was all tangled up in fishing line!

Just a wonderful overall experience! Rebecca was our guide. This was the second trip we have done with her we enjoy her so much! She was great personally, let a young girl sit on the bow and instructed her how to stay safe in that position, and chatted with the rest of us as we navigated the river!
