This was our first time whitewater rafting and we were hesitant to select a level other than beginner. Fortunately, we had an amazing guide that put us at ease and was very entertaining. We were so impressed with his ability to stay cool and direct us through the rocks. I highly recommend an afternoon in the Royal Gorge with Bryan... More

Super company, super people. A perfect ending to our summer! Neither of us had ever been whitewater rafting, until now. Now we are hooked! We had a great trip! Although it was only a level 2 raft trip, it was great for a beginner. This trip left us wishing it was only the beginning of summer. Our guide was very... More

Great folks to deal with!! Efficient, get info to you, very consciencous of their customers. Our 6 adult children/spouses went together. Kathy told us to take the 9am Royal Gorge Railway for the breakfast train excursion- the tracks run right alongside the river rafters ( gotta do that and ASK FOR RIVER SIDE!!) We were able to see our kids... More

We had a great time doing the Double Take at the Royal Gorge. Bryan/Brian was an excellent guide. He was funny, informative, fun, & very professional as he maneuvered the rapids & the rocks. We will definitely return!!!!

Living in this area I have taken many friends rafting when they come to visit. WAO is professional, friendly and safety minded. The raft guide, Rocco, was exceptional! Thanks for the great time WAO!

We booked the Rail and Raft package and it was worth every penny. Our rafting trip was in the afternoon the weather was perfect and since we had just a small group we could take our time down the river. We did the Big Horn Sheep float and Brian our guide did a fantastic job teaching us how to be... More

We booked the raft and rail package and it was excellent! We were concerned that the rafting would not be exciting enough for our teenage sons who had rafted before- but we were limited in trips because we had our ten year old daughter with us. The rafting was still exciting and the guides were great. The train ride on... More

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!
