This was amazing! We had so much fun even though the water was 50 degrees. The service was fantastic! The equipment they provided was great for the trip. Ask for Chris as a guide. His expertise makes it a safe adventure. He shares the history of the gorge. When our son is 6 we will return for a family trip... More

We took a trip through the Royal Gorge and witnessed amazing scenery and exciting rapids. We were nervous about going for our first time, especially with some class III and class IV rapids. Rosco gave us plenty of confidence with his knowlege and skill while preparing us for what was upcoming. Rafting became the highlight of the trip! Thanks and... More

We showed up and they provided wet suits, gloves, jackets and smiles ☺️ Rossco was our guide. He was an excellent rafter. Really good at avoiding the rocks and made sure to hit the rapids head on, making it super fun! He made us a delicious 3 foot sub for lunch with care. We also had cookies, strawberries and chips...

We had a great time rafting with our guide, Eric Young. We did the combo 1/2 day rafting 1/2 day horse back ride with the stable just down the road. The rafting was awesome! This was our first time rafting and we were with our two elementary school age children. There were enough rapids on the trip to keep it... More

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!
