The best experience of our Colorado trip!
SRINIVAS_P, Jul 2023
Our guide Sherman was awesome as he really took time and effort to make sure we had the most memorable experience with white water rafting. He navigated and guided us so well that we didn’t hit any rocks (some of the rafts did) and also we went through the rapid currents with ease and had fun along the way. Echo canyon company also had good staff which assisted every step, gave us the wet suits and safety gear such as helmets and water shoes and we didn’t feel any inconvenience in the entire trip. In the end, we were most pleased with the Go-pro videos and pictures (again thanks to Sherm for some of the awesome clicks along the way). Though the go-pro video footage and pics are little expensive, they are worth taking to keep these happy memories alive for a long time! I would definitely recommend this experience if you’re the first timer and not a great swimmers as well.
Had a blast on the Bighorn Sheep...

Had a blast on the Bighorn Sheep Canyon half-day tour as introduction to whitewater rafting. Freddy our guide was awesome- you could tell he loves being out there. I wish there were more options for purchasing souvenir photos something under 40. Other than that, we're happy we chose Echo Canyon rafting for this experience!
