"As someone who’s been on dozens of river trips across several states, I think the real value that Dinosaur River Expeditions' guides add is their unique knowledge, competence and commitment. Their enthusiasm and personal attention is unique. They’re great stewards of the river and its history, and I certainly am unwilling to go with anyone else."
