We took a group trip in Aug and had an amazing time. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Canon and a pleasure to have in our raft. Although it did rain a bit, it was a wonderful time. i dont recommend putting too many people in the raft because you will get stuck.....which was a blast BTW. We laughed... More

We chose WAO for my daughter's birthday rafting trip. We filled a boat with family and friends. Water was a little low at the end of the season, but our guide still made it a great trip. He also suggested a great time to return for a more exciting trip. That's exactly what we plan to do this year, and... More

My boyfriend and I took a WAO whitewater rafting trip with friends down the Royal Gorge. Our tour guy was fun, the WAO team took great care of us and the rapids gave us a thrill. We made some great memories that day and still reminisce about the experience. Melanie H. Minneapolis, MN

I have been rafting several times, including this specific section under the gorge at least three times, all with WAO. I use to come often with my youth group every summer, so I decided to take my few buddies that had never been, and the gorge was the only option for me. We went in late July of 2013, and... More

My family gave me one of my "bucket list" adventures for my 50th birthday--whitewater rafting with WAO! It was an unforgettable experience, with a wonderful, family friendly WOA crew. Our guide took time to get to know all of us, and to understand what kind of an experience we wanted. He even gave us some great tips about other CO... More

Tour guide Trent provided us with an awesome, safe trip down the Gorge. We rafted when the water was fast, but that kept things fun! Trent was very pleasant and provided great conversation while we cruised down the river. The van driver, office workers, everyone we met were very pleasant. "Not just a number" type operation.

Fantastic company to use as a whitewater rafting service in the Royal Gorge region! The guides and management are very courteous and knowledgeable, and very easy it work with for our needs. The full day trips offer a lunch as part of the deal and it is not disappointing! Going during the week instead of the weekends is better because... More

The guide was nice but couldn't control the raft. Later someone in our group overheard a more senior guide chastising our guide for the angle he approached some whitewater, which caused several people to fall out of the boat. Also, the management is horrible. Very rude

We took the half-day Royal Gorge trip with Trent as our guide and we were absolutely wowed throughout every aspect of the experience - from booking to check-in to the actual trip down the river. Stunning views, awesome rafting, and our guide Trent was nothing short of spectacular! He was funny and engaging while at the same time an experienced... More
