These folks do a great job of having fun while being responsible. We brought two newbies and 5 experienced rafters and all had a great time.

My family had an enjoyable time rafting with River Runners on the Royal Gorge trip. Our guide was knowledgeable, skilled, and fun. We will return to raft with them the next time we are in Colorado Springs.
