The family wanted to go rafting, so we took a chance a smaller outfit. We were not disappointed. Bryan, our guide, was great. He had a thousand stories for the kids and adults alike. Took the Royal Gorge trip and the views were fantastic. Great trip with a great guide and a good/safe tour operator. Well worth the money!

My boyfriend and I were a little nervous about going rafting. My daugher and son-in-law also went with us. This was the first time rafting for all 4 of us. Bryan was our guide and was great! We did the oar rafting, which means Bryan did most of the work maneuvering down the river, but my daughter and son-in-law also... More

My brother from Calif. and two of my sons went on an overnight rafting trip. What a great time! We rafted in some of the most beautiful country. Our WAO raft guide Trent knew the river and his craft well. He made us very comfortable on the water and off. About noon we stopped for lunch. Trent got our lunch... More

At first I was skeptic about rafting on the royal gorge because it consist of rather large rapids and we have been let down previously on the expectation of large rapids. We had to drive a few hours to get to WAO and it was absolutely worth it. when we first arrived at WAO, we walked into the front office... More

We booked a 1/2 day for 4 people, but ended up booking for 6. Having a special needs son, we inquired if they could accomodate him. They were willing to do so, with having Gabby as our guide. She assessed the original seating in the boat, and stopped after being on the water for short while, and changed to different... More

Our family of six had an amazing morning on the Arkansas River with a terrific guide from the Whitewater Adventure Outfitters today! From the phone call to make my reservation, to the friendly and helpful staff that greeted us today, to the fabulous guides we had a great family experience. We appreciated the small business charm and kindness. The price... More

Our family had a great experience with WAO during a recent reunion in Colorado. Since our grandson (age 6) was along, we did the half day "family class" trip in the Bighorn Sheep Canyon. Our grandson loved it and had a great time. The rafting trip was "just right" for a young boy and a grandfather. Our guide was safe,... More

We really enjoyed the all day whitewater rafting with our guide, Dave. He knew how to take the falls and rapids so that we were safe and had a great time. Everyone with WAO was friendly and helpful. Great way to spend our anniversary.
