Myself, my wife and my daughter were all rafting rookies. They did a great job of giving us instructions and getting us ready to go. We had the raft to ourselves with the guide and he did an outstanding job of making sure we had a blast! It was the highlight of our weeklong vacation in Colorado Springs. We'll definitely... More

It was my first time and I must admit I was scared at first. But this experience left me wanting for more. The guides are very professional and the view! it's like getting into the LORD of the Rings set and riding with them .....The site is so wonderful, thought i could only see it in the movies. My Aunt... More

This was such an adventure!! There were 3 of us that went (2 from the UK who had never been white water rafting) and we had the time of our lives! Not only was the rafting itself an experience, but also the chance to get to know your little "crew". Our guide was great and the food wasn't too shabby... More

I have been coming to Colorado since I was a kid and have taken many rafting trips over the years, but I would have to say that my trip with River Runners is certainly a cut above all the others. I have a six and nine year old and they both said the rafting trip was the highlight of of... More

The day-long trip was absolutely fantastic!! We were lucky enough to have a very seasoned guide who was talkative and knowledgeable about local history, and who was also perceptive enough to allow moments of quiet contemplation as we looked, mouths agape, at the awe inspiring scenery. Our raft was a small one--accommodating just myself and one other passenger--and was expertly... More

I'm from the UK and am in my sixties. The day out I had on the river with river runners was fantastic. I always felt safe with our trusty navigator even when we were being thrown around by the rapids. We were given expert tips before setting off and clothed appropriately. The lunch provided was excellent half way through the... More

This was my grandsons first trip to Colorado and my first time to do a river rafting adventure. The guide and his assistant put us at ease with the prep and instructions before we got to the river and when on the river really gave us a ride that we will remember for many years. My eldest grandson got to... More

I had a really good time rafting with these guys! It was just me and my best friend, so we fit in great with the younger crowd. The only thing that almost turned me off with this company was that my friend and I had a few beers prior to departing, and one of the guides threatened to make us... More

My family has been rafting with River Runners for over 20 years and we always have a great time! The experience is consistently an exhilarating one and the guides are personable and contribute to the fun atmosphere. The Big Horn trip is ideal for younger children/families and the Royal Gorge is more appropriate for adults, older kids and thrill seekers.
