My grandson and I had a wonderful time with Wild West Rafting. The crew was pleasant and very well trained.

I would recommend this to my friends. Our guides were fun, informative, relaxed, and made the experience a joyful one. I'm not a swimmer, so I was a bit nervous of how fast or dangerous this would be, but it was perfectly safe and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

It was the perfect mix of exciting and scenic. Our guide Caleb was awesome and funny, I will definitely do it again if I'm back in the area - I highly recommend!!

This was a great trip. The scenery is beautiful, the staff friendly and relaxed. We went out with another family with 2 much younger children. our guide was really tuned in to doing what was best for both groups. The youngsters were kept safely inside the raft for most of the journey, but given the chance to join in a bit later on once they'd got used to the whole experience. Seeing my son/ daughter were more comfortable with the whole getting soaked in the rapids affair she offered them to opportunity to 'ride on the bow' through one towards the end. Note- the site says wetsuits provided as well as life jackets/ water shoes. Given we did the shorter tour and the temperature, we did not have wet suits. . . so not only go with swimwear but take shorts/ T shirt you are happy to get soaked in!

This is a fun family rafting trip. We went in June so the river was moving quite fast trip took half the time allotted. Still the rapids were very manageable and our kids 10 and 15 were not at all afraid. The water was freezing so don't expect to do the swimming stop if you go in June. While the gear is not the newest and fanciest, the guides are very knowledgeable and made the trip very fun. I strongly suggest doing the whitewater version of the trip over the scenic version. The rapids are not at all scary and you still have plenty of resting time to enjoy the scenery.

Husband and I very much enjoyed this rafting experience. Great ride, beautiful scenery, and just the right amount of work balanced with rest. Our guide Jeff was funny, knowledgeable, and entertaining. We had a blast. Thanks!

We were a group of 10, with kids ranging from age 6 to 15 and five adults. Everyone had a great time! Our guide was fun and informative, and the operator seemed on top of safety and comfort. I am very sensitive to cold and thought I would be uncomfortable during the rafting trip, but I was fine. There were exciting rapids, but not anything too scary for the younger kids. I would definitely recommend this tour to others!

Nice trip with family. Just wild enough to be exciting with a calm float that allows you to take in the sights
