During a July visit to Breckenridge, we (our family of 4, ages 15 thru 49) and our friends (family of 4, ages 18 thru 50), drove over the Buena Vista for the all day rafting trip thru Browns Canyon on the Arkansas River. Although I had been once as a teenager, no one else had ever rafted. Everyone had a... More

PeruTourism arranged my trip from beginning to end. Because I travel alone, I wanted to make sure hotels were safe and in a good spot. Communication was excellent. I loved my travel Specialist, Marirose. Everything on my list was in my itinerary. Once in Peru, everything was extremely well organised. All guides were very knowledgeable and dynamic. Drivers were safe.Everything... More

We were visiting Breckenridge with some friends and decided to do the 1/2 day rafting trip on the Arkansas River. We had a group of 7 and the tour guides broke us into two boats (one boat of 4 the other 3). The guides knew we were together and ensured our boats stayed close enough that we could interact with...

We hadn't done any white water rafting for years so it was with a little trepidation that we started the morning. We were made very welcome when we arrived and quickly kitted out. Wetsuits, booties and cagoule tops are all available but as it was a wonderful, hot sunny day so none of this was needed. The briefing on the... More

We choose the Arkansas trip that goes through IV & V rapids. Clearly we were in good hands with Performance Tours. Our guide was probably the most competent and friendly guide we've experienced in any outdoor operation. Can you say fun! Great summertime excursion. This trip does require the participants to be in fair to good physical condition. Our itinerary... More

We booked with Performance Tours through the place we stayed, the super groovy Starlite Campground. We're so glad we did! We did the half day through Royal Gorge that featured Class III and IV rapids. Lucky for us-- we got the fantastic Tim Reynolds -- "Terlingua Tim"-- as our guide. Performance Tours prides itself on hiring only experienced guides, unlike... More

My husband, 11 year old son and I did the whole day Brown's Canyon trip. there were enough rapids to keep us challenged, but with time to chat with our guide and learn about the area on the way. Our guides, Hailey and Paul, provided a great riverside lunch, where we coudl watch others go through the class III rapids.... More

We picked Performance Tours when looking online for a rafting experience through the Royal Gorge. My husband and I went with them on Wed., July 30. I was a little nervous beforehand about the "IV's and V's" rapids, so I was glad to have the morning to warm up with mostly II's. It was pretty mild, but after that I... More

Our family of 4 went whitewater rafting with Performance Tours on July 30, 2013. They were very professional, courteous, and helpful every time I called with questions even before I booked the trip. Once we arrived, again, everyone was helpful and courteous. However, none of that compares to how awesome the actual experience on the water with our guide, Courtney,... More
