Loved our full day out of Canon City – our group’s second experience this summer with Performance Tours. We were all amazed at how energetic and knowledgeable the guides are. What a neat company! Even on a cold, rainy day they helped our group of 9 have a great time on the river. All of the guides we’ve been given have been top-notch. – Heather

We just did a full day raft trip with them and it was very well done. The staff were very attentive and friendly in getting us all set up and the guides were all awesome. We had a group of 35 and everyone said they liked their guide. Seemed like they had each been with the company for quite a few years, which says a lot for the company. – John

We flew in from NYC for a long weekend of adventure! We were in Breck for my sister in law’s bachelorette party and she has been dying to go white water rafting in CO for a long time. We are so happy that this was the company we ended up with. Or guide was an absolute expert of the river. We loved him. The guides are so well trained and really take care of their people. – Jessica
