What I knew I could count on with Holiday.
Favorite part of their trip is a BIG surprise!
Reflecting on a strong bonding experience
Our Westwater trip far exceeded our expectations. Ours was a small group, which allowed us to bond quickly and easily. We couldn't have asked for better weather, a better group of people or better food. We got to see many amazing animals, take several great hikes and learn so much about the area from our fantastic guides. Rocky, Sam, Jess and Erika were so knowledgeable on everything from the history to the geology, and they were great cooks to boot. I felt safe at all times and I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for an adventure, whether it's with a group of friends, co-workers or as a family. A Holiday River trip will not disappoint!
Having ridden on ancient school buses with other companies we were very happy with your modern vans! This was an absolutely fantastic trip. We'd rafted with other companies before but Holiday was by far the best experience we've ever had. The scenery, hikes and whitewater in Cataract are great but doing the trip with Holiday just took it to the next level. Our guides: Ben, Dustin and Tanner were incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgeable for every moment of the trip. They did everything with a smile and genuine joy of being on the river doing this job. They really made the trip for us. Of course the food was also incredible. I found myself stuffed after every meal because I couldn't stop eating the delicious and creative dishes the guides whipped up. They even cooked us lasagna and cakes in the dutch ovens! We're already scheming about our next trip with Holiday. Now we just have to decide if we're going to do Yampa or Lodore first!
Usually we do everything for ourselves but turning over the White Rim trip and planning to the Holiday River guides was fabulous. The guides were fun, knowledgeable and helpful with everything from cooking fantastic meals to organizing moonlight hikes to scenic overlooks. This was a scenic trip that I'd recommend to others.
Loved the guides! They were both great! Overall experience was a great time and I'd definitely recommend to anyone else out there! Can't wait for my next trip!
Lauren was on top of everything and most helpful! Julian and Dustin were completely delightful and bent over backwards to accommodate! A White Rim trip guided by Holiday is the only way to go! It's so nice to not have to worry about anything but riding and having fun. My only complaint is that I biked about 90 miles and didn't lose any weight because we were so well fed! The food was fantastic!!
