Our group of 7 (which included two 10 year old first timers) did a half day trip on the Arkansas. It was an awesome time and the guides and everyone at River Runners were great! They were all very professional and knowledgable. I highly recommend them!

River Runners was recommended by a friend who is very familiar with white water rafting because of the company's "experience and professionalism." I'm so glad! We did the Browns Canyon full day and had so much fun we went back the next week for the full day Royal Gorge trip. Browns Canyon - so beautiful! This is a great family... More

We did a full day Big Horn Sheep rafting trip with our 2 children ages 14 and 10 on 7/3/14 and had a fabulous time! None of us had ever been rafting before. Dean (Sasquatch) was our guide and made the day even better! He made the trip fun for all of us, knew right where our raft needed to... More

I thought River Runners did a fantastic job on the half day trip in Big Horn Sheep canyon. We took my two children, ages 11 & 14, and while this provided lots of woo-hoo moments I felt that our guide did a great job of navigating us and keeping us safe. The only negative about Big Horn Sheep canyon is... More

We did the half day 7/3/2014. We chose the Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip due to the age requirement on the Royal Gorge trip. Our guides were lots of fun and the weather was amazing!

My husband, daughter and I had an amazing time on our first rafting trip. We did a half-day trip on 6-26-14. Our guides Dean and JJ were great fun on the trip but also knew what they were doing in guiding our raft. We are planning on going back next year and will definitely use River Runners again and request... More

John N. or M. (we don't remember!) did a great job navigating us through the Type IV-V rapids on the full Day Royal Gorge Trip. He was able to give us a lot of the history and he kept it real with us the whole time. We were lucky that the water cooperated and wasn't too high that we wouldn't... More

What a wonderful experience. While in canon city for a family reunion we decided to go white water rafting, only 1 out of 6 in our group has rafted and we did the royal gorge half day run. Our guide Brian was excellent in instructing us and we never felt in danger. Brian also was great in engaging conversation and... More
