We went on the family rafting trip and it was great fun. People were friendly, they gave great instructions to stay safe and made the morning trip very fun and exciting--even for the little ones. Ty did a great job helping us get the right fit for life jackets and helmets. Great team work on the river amongst all the... More

We did the half-day white water trip and could not be more pleased with our experience! Our guide was Jared and he was amazing! He did a phenominal job handling a difficult crew and even though half of iur raft joined the Arkansas River Swim Team I would do this again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend this experience!

Our half day Royal Gorge rafting trip was great. The boats hold groups of 6 plus your guide, so it was especially nice that we had six in our party. We ranged in age from 13 to 71 years with most of us being first time rafters. Big John, our experienced guide, kept us all calm and working together with... More

Awesome experience!!! Definitely worth the 3 hour drive to the place. The Gorge was beautiful and the rafting trip was fun and exciting. Worth every penny. We didn't buy the pictures as they were a bit over priced, but this memory will last forever. Had Chris as a guide and he was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

We did the classic zip course in the morning with Jayson and Lukas as our guides. They did a great job, made sure everyone was having fun. They also did a great job of knowing if everyone in our group had acclimated to the altitude and made sure we took water breaks. Rafted in the afternoon with Dallas as our... More

We rafted with Cody and had a great experience. I liked that they required their guides to be experienced as I am a odd combination of nervous nelly/thrill seeker. We rafted the class 4+ Royal Gorge and highly recommend it with Royal Gorge Rafting.

We rafted the royal gorge, it was our first time, and definitely won't be the last! Our guide, Cody, was great! The rapids were awesome! We had never been rafting before, and this was a great start. It was challenging at times, but there was also time to just take in the BEAUTIFUL scenery! The staff at royal gorge rafting... More

Nine of us, one or two a little bit nervous (yes chicken) took this raft tour down the Arkansas River and we had a blast. Great safety briefing that started a little bit late, but very informative. The entire staff really knew their business. Very friendly, very professional, and very fun to be around. Dallas, our guide was the best.... More
