We brought our group of Boy Scouts through here on the way to Philmont Scout Ranch. WAO gave us discounts because of being scouts and that really helped us stay in budget. The overall experience was great and they exceeded our expectations in every regard.

He was so experienced, knowledgeable, and laid back. He made sure everybody had a great time, especially our 8 year old son, whom... More

We wanted to get our 5, 7 and 9 year olds accustomed to more outdoor adventures. The trip was booked online a couple of weeks before the trip. We took the early or splash trip that was appropriate for the younger one. They had a ball and the guide, Eric, was fantastic. We enjoyed it so much we stopped by... More

My parents came in to town and we decided to go rafting. We did the big horn canyon trip and enjoyed it and our guide Gabby so much that we returned two days later to raft the royal gorge.

Thanks to WAO and Eric the guide for making the first rafting trip for my family an incredibly enjoyable one. From the reservation process to the actual trip, everything was handled smoothly and very well organized. All of the guides seemed fun and capable. We got to experience some fun, splashy rapids and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Highly recommend!!

In the capable hands of Rick, we smoothly navigated throughs the many rapids of The Gorge. It was fun, adventurous and one for the memory books! We all stayed I the raft (yaya!), some of us young and experienced, some a bit older and novices, yet Rick was masterful in his instruction and we paddled through very rapid, much to... More
