My wife and I did the rafting on Aug 25th in the afternoon. We were put with four others and our guide Cameron. It was pretty fun and exciting but more work than I thought it would be. The river was low so it made it more technically challenging to deal with. They tour starts with a big safety lecture... More

We had a blast rafting and ziplining. Our guides were awesome and knew what they were doing. Chainsaw and Bama took great care of us and made our ziplining a blast. Food was great at Whitewater Bar and Grill.I would definitely use this place again if I ever return. They also take great pictures of your experience that are available... More

My husband and I booked a full day package with the Royal Gorge for rafting and zip lining. The package included lunch, but since the restaurant was closed for the season, they just gave us 10% off the price and we packed our own lunch. This was an incredible day! I had never been zip lining or rafting before and... More

Royal Gorge Rafting far exceeded my expectations. The rafting was great. Ask for Ryan as a guide. He had a excellent knowledge of the river, history of the area, safety conscious, and was entertaining. The trip was reasonably priced. The facility was clean, equipment in good shape, and the restaurant was decent.

Loved our experience with the Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours. The staff was so friendly throughout the whole process of booking and even scheduled a special time for our group. Our tour guides Katie and Coach made the experience even better by joking with us and providing us some background on the place. The race at the end was the... More

This was my first time rafting so I didn't really know what to expect. We got checked in and got our wetsuits, river jackets, helmets, and life jackets. The employees did a good job getting everyone ready to go. We were there at the tail end of the season but there were more people than I expected (including a bachelor... More

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

Five friends and I decided to do a spur of the moment rafting trip while we were in Canon City. We had heard of RGR and wanted to see it for ourselves. 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
