The river trip down the Colorado and through Cataract Canyon was an incredible experience. Despite the COVID situation, Holiday River Expeditions staff was great in keeping us informed on the status of the trip. The guides were fantastic, and helped us decide on which hikes to do. They were all wonderful, i.e friendly, helpful, good cooks, and were fun to be around. Karen was wonderful and organized whenever I called her for additional information. I give Holiday River Expeditions an A+ and I highly recommend this company.
The guides were 100% the best part of this trip. All of them were so knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and overall incredible. The way they spoke about environmental stewardship of the land, about the indigenous tribes, watershed systems, geology, etc. was astounding. They made our trip the best rafting experience of all time, and I would love to come back again. The food was gourmet, the transportation was adequate, and the activities were great. Having the ducky to ride was wonderful, getting to row the boat, and the hike to the waterfall was fun as well. The library of books to read through and the games for night time were great to have. My only suggestion would be to suggest a game that everyone can play together more often. The whip cream game was fun but only lasted a few minutes. I think people really enjoy interacting, but don't know how to start the process. I would love to come back over and over again, and am even considering learning how to become a guide myself!
Great communication for both general trip questions and Covid Rental gear was great! Loved the pillow 🙂 Food was amazing, guides were awesome! Great trip! This was my first time river camping and first experience in the rapids, loved all of it!
Guides were phenomenal - probably the best I've ever had on any adventure trip. And the food was sooo good!
This was our first time on the Yampa and our 8th year with Holiday. The Yampa was spectacular! Lots of whitewater. Larkin was a great trip leader as usual. We feel like the repeat river guides are like our second family and love meeting new river guides. If you want to escape from the real world and you love camping this is the best way to completely unplug.
