My sister and I had never ziplined before and I have to say we had THE best time with the Royal Gorge Rafting company. Our two guides, who we nicknamed....Buzzsaw and Snake Bite....were absolutely the best. They were extremely safety conscious (which is important!)....but also were FUN and FUNNY! We had such a great time with them. We are looking... More

Royal Gorge Rafting is the greatest place I have ever been. They exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. We went rafting and zip lining and our guides; Cam, Jeff, and KT were so great! They truly made our experience extra special. They are all so amazing at what they do. Guides make or break your trip and I can... More

Booking the trip was easy and the people in the office were very friendly! We were a little nervous for whoever our guide was going to be because... More

We had a great time rafting with Jared on the Arkansas river. It was just an incredible experience that we really enjoyed. Our guide was very professional, and truly loved sharing his passion for this adventure. We went on a class 3-4 whitewater rafting trip through the Royal Gorge, and I fell out of the raft while we went over... More

We spent 10 days in Colorado in July and saw all the sights and usual attractions, but my three boys unanimously agreed white water rafting was their favorite of the entire trip. Royal Gorge Rafting is very professional and a top notch company in general. We had QUINN as our guide, and as a nervous mother of three boys, and... More

I had scheduled our family for the Big Horn Canyon trip but our guide, John, found me right when we checked in and asked if we might want to upgrade to the Royal Gorge tour since water volume was down. He said the tour I had booked would basically be a float trip with little or no whitewater. My wife... More
