We spent the morning on the river with Greivy today. We had an awesome time. He had a great sense of humor and was very knowledgeable. We would recommend this outfitter. Be sure and stay for lunch too. The nachos were delicious. What a great way to spend the day.

Intense fun. Our guide, Chris, made it fun and educational. A true tour guide. He knew the history of the area, and helped us to understand how the canyon had evolved. He also gave us the opportunity to switch places on the raft. Over-all, we had a great time. I can't wait to go again.

Our 1/2 day Big Horned Sheep rafting trip was great! The scenery was beautiful and the river was a lot of fun! Jared was a terrific instructor for our group of 6, ages 9 to 59. He was fun, informative, and patient, even with my 9 year old's relentless questions about the rapids.

Not only were the whitewater rafting tours AMAZING, but what truly made our adventure even more AMAZING were our Captains - Capt. Quinn, for our family of 5 tour down the Bighorn Sheep Canyon, and Capt Thomas for half of our family (3) down the more extreme Royal Gorge!!! A total Blast!!

The best rafting outfit !! Thomas our guide is kind, smart and knows his business. With this company you get more river distance than your other company's. I'm so glad we used them. We will return!!

Went rafting for the first time the morning of July 19th and it was awesome! Our guide, Captain Cam, was great in directing us and getting us through the rapids. We had a great time laughing and calling him out on some of his outrageous stories (ie: petting the bear)!!! You can tell he loves his job. Would definitely go... More

Great family vacation with teen boys (15 & 17). We decided on a half day rafting trip in the morning and a zip line tour in the afternoon. Our rafting guide, Jimmy, was the best. He not only made it exciting but kept us laughing the whole time. Lunch was part of the package and it too was great. Staci... More

What a great idea for a day of family fun. In today's video game infused, cell phone connected culture, sometimes it can seem difficult to find the right activities to pull your teenagers into the great outdoors. It sounds like zipping and rafting were the perfect combination for your crew! We are so glad to hear that you and your... More

Best rafting fun ever!! Guides like Ernst make the trip a learning experience as well as so much fun. Class 4 rapids are not for the timid. The guides at RGR are fun, knowledgable and personable. Just be sure to tip them, they earned it!

Class IV rapids are definitely nothing for the timid individual! Paddlers must be ready to paddle hard, charge through the waves, and, most importantly, listen to their guide. The Gorge is an incredibly beautiful stretch of river, but to paddle it requires a bit of physical know-how and strength. lara631, thank you very much for posting a review of your... More

We did a half-day, morning trip on July 12th. Our guide for the trip was Erin. She had no problem keeping the six guys in line, plus she had a great personality and knew the history of the river/canyon. We had class 3 & 4 rapids for our trip. The water was cool and the air was warm. If you... More
