Emerson and the team provided us with a great half day experience - with beautiful, scenic views, and crisp cool water. Would definitely do a full day trip when our kiddo is a bit older. A lot of fun!!

It was a little late in the season for rafting. It was more like bumping along the rocks than actually flowing along the current- even though this was the more exciting tour. Could of rapids - one class 4, but it felt a lot longer...More

We visited Estes Park for a quick weekend getaway and booked the Wild and Scenic Tour in Fort Collins. All the guides were really fun. Our guide was Dylan; I felt that he was the most seasoned. The 1/2 day trip was perfect to venture...More
