The guides were awesome and the river was super fine. I could have gone for another hour or two. I recommend Brian (Lazer).

Thank you so much for your review, Kim! If you weren't on it this time, then next time you are going to have to try our Blast of Whitewater trip. 12 miles of "wild and scenic" Poudre River. Doesn't that sound great? Hopefully, we will see you again next season, and don't be afraid to ask for the Lazer man again, haha.

My two young-adult daughters and I did the "Blast of Whitewater" trip on the Poudre River in mid-June. This was our first experience on Class III and IV rapids. The Wanderlust staff was great; professional but fun and relaxed. Special shout-out to our guide, Hunter. You rock. The equipment was in good shape and didn't stink (If you've ever rented a wet suit, you know what I mean). The 12-mile stretch of the river that Wanderlust uses is absolutely beautiful and had a lot of great rapids. It was a cool and rainy day, but my daughters and I had a blast!

Thanks for choosing to raft with us at Wanderlust and for the great review! I'm happy to hear you had such a "blast!" I'll pass your shout-out along to Hunter next time I see him. Thanks again! We hope to see you again next season.

16 of us went on the white water river, Poudre river, and had a wonderful time. Since the water was extremely high in June we went in 2 groups with the 6 adventurous ones 16 to 22 going on the advanced trip and the others with children 8 to 12 going on the Taste of water (class 2 and 3 rapids). The water was fast on both trips, the action was exciting, the guides wonderful, and all had a great time. Wanderlust is a professionally run organization with very good well trained guides. Because of the wet suits, booties, and dry jackets they provide none of us got cold in the 41 degree water. Don’t put your dry jacket on until you reach the water put in location or you will get hot. Even those of us that were worried about the trip were wanting to go again the next day. We recommend Wanderlust Adventure to any small or large group wanting to ride the river - they can handle it with safety yet still being fun.

We had an amazing time rafting with Wanderlust. Our guide Kate was so good with my kids. Even my seven year old had the time of her life. We can't wait to go back and raft again.

We had 36 rafters in our group. It can't be easy to manage that many people on a river trip but they did a good job. Our only complaint was the rotten, awful smell of the jackets. They stunk so bad! YUCK!
