Scotty and Quinn were our rafting guides, Bryan and Fraser for zip lining, all professionals, and very thorough about safety and their expectations of us. Probably because of the water level, we were not offered the opportunity of stopping and jumping into the river, but we were still able to experience class 3&4 rapids. They had their own photographer, but... More

We went in the first part of August, 4 of us. I was super nervous and almost didn't want to do it. I am so glad we did. It was so much fun and something we will never stop taking about! Thomas was our guide and he was fantastic! We will definitely be back.

I had a really great time rafting with Royal Gorge Rafting, specially with our guide Bono, who made it even more fun!!! we were originally intended to do it once but we ended up liking it so much that we did it again the following day. I would definitely choose them again for my next adventure trip!

A buddy of mine and I went down to the Royal Gorge Zip-lines for their "Extreme" tour. This tour included 11 zip-lines and a 70' tower jump free fall. By far the most fun I have had in a while. This tour does have a bit of a hike so come prepared (hydrated and in good shape) to make it... More

We went rafting in mid-July when the water was still fairly high due to the heavy rains they'd had all spring. The rapids were Class 3 & 4. We combined this trip with a zip line tour and lunch was included in the price. Our raft guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The staff at the outfitting store made sure... More

This was our first time river rafting. Our family group included two teenagers and five adults and we all had a great time. RGR was very professionally run and had a really easy reservation and check-in process. The equipment was in good condition and the changing areas were nice. When we got to the river we learned all the basics... More

My husband and I had used this guiding service before on a previous trip but this time we had our 6 YO in tow. We signed up for a relatively simple class 2-3 trip and our guide Scotty was amazing. Besides being an informative guide, he was GREAT with our son and absolutely made him feel like a part of... More

I had never rafted before. Our guide Dave (Bono) gave a very thorough review of what would happen and how we should handle different situations. He was funny and informative throughout the trip, giving us history, tips, and anecdotes. The equipment and rafts were all in great condition, and we felt safe the whole time. Highly recommend this company!

Went Ziplining and Rafting with my SO through Royal Gorge Rafting. The entire experience was very professional and a lot of fun! Our zipline guides were Kenny and Eric and our rafting guide was Dave a.k.a. Bono. Our guides were hilarious, helpful, and kept us feeling safe the entire time we were with them. The zipline course was fast and... More
