Our family traveled to Colorado without much planned to do, we ended up finding a few brochures from our hotel for rafting trips. We called Dennis (super nice, who turned out to be the owner) and he said they weren't planning on starting the season until Saturday :/ we were planning to leave Saturday so without hesitation he made some...

My friends and I myself had the best day! The whole experience was awesome. The reservations were easy, they gave us gear to use, great prep before we went out and our guide did a great job and he made it really fun. The pics turned out good and the scenery was amazing. Perfect day!

Raft Masters was the BEST company we have ever used rafting! I have had back surgery and they set us up with a SR. guide (Chuck) to take us down the Royal Gorge. He had a great deal of experience and without that I would not have been able to participate on this rafting trip. I did not have to... More

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. Raft Masters made... More

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
