This was my 3rd time to go white water rafting on the Arkansas River - 2nd time for my kids. I have a particular loyalty to River Runners, because I feel confident they will not disappoint. Each time they have exceeded my expectations and every raft guide we've had, has been phenomenal! Our guide this last time was Brian (Troll?)... More

There are many rafting companies to choose from, we are happy we chose River Runners! We are a family of six and our four kids had a great time. JJ was our guide and she was awesome! It was our first time rafting and JJ got us hooked.

We rafted with River Runners about 10 years ago and when we went back to Canyon City, we booked with them again. However this time we had four kids, ages 8-11. We spoke to the front desk and told them that two of the girls had never been rafting and were a little scared. They said. "No worries, we're gonna... More

With so many rafting companies out there, we hit the jackpot and selected the right one. A group of us, mostly first timers including a 12 year old, did the all day Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip. Dean (Sasquatch), our guide, was great. His sense of humor, knowledge on the water, and historical knowledge made for a great experience. He even... More

Our Guide Mel, and our trip leader Tara were fantastic. We did the half day trip through Big Horn Canyon and had a blast. Mel was a terrific guide and made sure we had fun and were safe. She was great at coaching us in our paddling. The kids had a blast and so did we adults. We'd love to... More

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
