Suggestions on white water rafting in Colorado?

A group of my friends are looking to do a guys trip next year, and we'd really like to do white water rafting. We have a good friend in Colorado, and we'd like to visit him as well. None of us have any real experience (canoes at the lake is about it) but we're all in okay shape and enjoy physical activity.

I'd love to hear suggestions on locations and guides, best time of year and any general tips or lessons

I guess our general criteria are:
  • Suitable for 6-8 beginners (but still challenging and exciting)
  • 3-4 day experience
  • Friendly and knowlegable guide
  • All equipment included
  • Cabins preferred (but tent camping would be okay)

Thoughts? Anything I left off the list that we should be thinking about?

Thank you!

I did the Grand Canyon for 4 days in 1985.

Most awesome rafting trip ever.

Sorry, but don't remember anything about the outfitter, but my girlfriend at the time was a travel agent, and she set up the whole trip for us. Maybe you could start there?
