Don't go cheap and miss out on the experience you get with these guys. We did the full day of rafting and I already want to go back. Our river guide Dallas (the Dally Llama) could have steered us down the Arkansas in his sleep. He hit all the best parts of the rapids while entertaining us with a million... More

My wife and I took our two teen aged children on an all day rafting trip on the Bighorn section of the river, the professionalism of the staff was like no other rafting service we have encountered. Quinn made us feel like he was part of our family, he took the professionalism of this company and made it personal. Thanks... More

We had a wonderful time with Royal Gorge Rafting. They gave good instructions, were fast and efficient and got us on the water as quickly as possible. We did the full day rafting trip that went through the Royal Gorge - beautiful! A delicious fajita lunch was served before hitting the gorge section which was a perfect meal for such... More

With a few first time rafters in our group, we chose the easier route for this trip. While it was very tame, it was good for the first timers. Our guide was very nice and very knowledgeable on the area and the history of the River. Would recommend this to anyone, even with smaller children!

Rafted with RGR last week and as always it was a great experience. Shared the boat with a family who had done quite a lot of whitewater rafting. They told our guide, Cameron, that the Arkansas River was the best they'd been on. We had a terrific afternoon Gorge trip. Want to give a special shout-out to the safety kayaker... More

I booked this trip for 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 kids ranging in age from 7 to 13. 3 of the people on our raft were non-swimmers and at least two of them (including myself) are terrified of water and almost backed out a couple of times. We expressed our concerns to our guide Jared who reassured all... More

We had a group of 18 people from a large accounting firm participate in this team building event. We did the extreme course and had a great time. Our guides, Breana and Alek, made it fun and managed to get all of us to jump off the tower at the end. It was a great way to get to know... More

Our family had the best time ever! Ours sons were only 10 and 8 so, we were limited to the Bighorn Sheep river rafting, but we had a blast! Millz is hands down the best guide ever! He and Jeremiah (also awesome) were our zip line guides in the morning. Millz then made the extra effort to ensure that he... More

My husband booked this trip looking at its rating, and I do agree with 5 star rating for this one. First thing all the gear was covered, the place, the gear and bookings all went with ease but the most important thing about a tour is the people. Our guide was Gram (not sure of the spelling) and along with... More

Travis, our guide, was great and we had a wonderful time. I'd give the folks at Royal Gorge one idea: Undercut every other outfitter on the price of your photos. We had 30+ people in our group, and no one bought the pictures. With facebook, tumblr, instagram, twitter...The advertisement of a deluge of photos on social media would beat a... More
