We had so much fun rafting down the Arizona River with our guide, Mark. This is a top notch rafting company. Safety is very important to them, which made me feel comfortable bringing our 3 kids with us. The trip was the perfect length and everything was explained very well, so we could relax and have fun.

We cant say enough about the fun we had on the whitewater trip down the royal gorge. The water is not running as fast as it would be in the spring, so this was the perfect trip for us! So fun,many laughs! This was our first rafting trip and I wish we would have booked 2 trips!

We were not sure if we would like rafting so we tried the Jeep tour instead. It is the only jeep tour in the area and it was awesome. Our guide Chris was knowledgeable and entertaining as we drove around the area and up to Fremont mountain. He showed us fossils and arrowheads. He knew the names of all of... More

We did the half day jeep and raft trip in the Royal Gorge. Both were great experiences. The day was a little chilly, but both tours provided us with extra gear to keep warm. Awesome way to see the gorge, did not really need to go on the train since we had seen from the water and the jeep. Alan... More

I can't say enough good things about this trip. The staff is super friendly and efficient. The guides know the river and can explain the history of the area while taking you on a great adventure. I'd definitely do it again.

From the first phone call for to the very end with GREAT Photos on CD, this place ran like a well oiled machine! Super helpful (my mother went into the quaint town, while we rafted), they called the restaurant to make sure they were open and their hours, gave us directions to drop her off. Then we had a Royal... More

My Son has been asking me for several years to take him rafting. We did the Royal Gorge trip and it was great. The staff are all very friendly, organized and helpful. We had a great time.

In our family we ranged in age from 63 to 3, and Raft Masters had something geared to all those ages. Grandma and the two youngest enjoyed just enough thrills on the family float trip, including time to get out of the boat and splash and opportunities to see ducks and deer. The adults and oldest of our grandchildren loved... More

Had a blast today with Raft Masters! Brandon, our guide, also made it SUPER AMAZING!!!! Would definitely recommend them and Brandon. There were 3 in our group and we shared a raft with 2 other guys- that was even great. We all hit it off really well and have become friends in life and Facebook!
