5 stars for the Canyonlands 4 x4 drive. Always ask for the guide with the most experience . He was a wealth of knowledge. The rafting trip was not worth the time or money. The lunch was the best part. Too much down time between activities.

The rafting on the Colorado River with Red River Adventures was my very first one but I felt very comfortable because I got a special training from our guide, Larry, beforehand. The rapids made me a bit scared before we started but after the first one I was pumped with adrenaline and couldn’t wait for the next to come. If you are a beginner too, don’t worry! There were lots of children taking part in it. Our guide was on the boat the whole time. He led the group, gave us instructions and told us some interesting facts about Moab, Onion Creak and even movies which were shot there (e.g. „The Lone Ranger”). There was also a delicious & healthy lunch (with lots of fresh vegetables) in the middle of the trip, prepared by the guides. And the landscape was just unbelievable! The tour was perfectly organized. I recommend it to everyone. Thank you Red River Adventures! And special thanks to Larry!

Enjoyed the entire half day float trip. Guide was great and made sure everyone felt at ease and knew how to safely enjoy the trip down the river. He took time to tell us a lot about the local flora and fauna and gave us a great perspective of the river eco system.
Beautiful views, awesome swimming in the Colorado River, Tisna our guide was great! Lunch was good. Rapids where only class1-2 but enjoyable. Seen a big horn sheep drinking next to us.
This was a nice, genial float down the Colorado River along SR 128. The geology was spectacular, guide was incredibly knowledgeable, and the weather was great.
