This was my 2nd ride and my 65 year old father's first. They were great to work with. They still have a personal touch that is sometimes missing in this world we live in today. The trip was easy to book, and they had everything available for a first time rider. Thanks to WAO!

This was my first time ever white water rafting. We chose WAO on a whim and we're really glad that we did. We decided to go on the half day tour and it was the perfect amount for us. Our guide was Gabby and she was amazing. She was very talkative and funny. We really got to know the other... More

What a wonderful experience! I took my parents out for their birthday celebrations. They were both nervous (being older 60+) and had lots of questions. The guides and other staff were very informative and helpful creating a reassuring experiencing. The beginning trip was perfect and our guide (I believe her name was Abby) was amazing! My parents can't wait for... More

You can go with the bigger companies if you want to wait for the other boats and pay ALOT more, but you wont find better guides. Dave was our guide and has been rafting for 30 years.

We were in CO for a family reunion and decided to do an adventure with our grand daughters. What an adventure! They assured us it was OK for the 6 and 7 year old girls. It was so fun! The adults and kids had a great time.

For 150 bucks, my wife and I had a 2 hour experience along the Arkansas River into the amazing Royal Gorge. The views alone made the trip amazing. They offered wetsuits and river boots, the latter which I ended up needing. Our raft was sturdy and our guide (Aaron) was knowledgeable about the area and the rapids. There were a... More

This was my first whitewater rafting experience. I went with my husband and my brother-in-law on the royal gorge rapids. I explained to our guide, Trent, how nervous I was, and he assured me he was going to take good care of me. Our raft was an oar boat, instead of a paddle boat, because this gives the guide more...

We took a group of 6 scouts and 4 leaders on a two-day trip, and it was amazing. The staff was terrific, the equipment outstanding, the river conditions were perfect. I highly recommend Whitewater Adventure Outfitters.
