Billy took great care of us! Big River Rafting is the way to go! Laid back and fun and educational and safe. The River is running a little low this time of year but this was perfect for a first time float. Just enough rapids to get the heart rate up but mostly relaxing and enjoyable. Perfect weather and spectacular... More

Loved white water rafting. Water wasn't too high, but enough to give us a thrill. The guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the area and current events.

Fun excursion with the kids. Rapids were not a big as we wanted, but it was our first time so we didn't know what to expect. Glad we did it.

Went down with Los Rios River Runners 5 hour trip on our last day in Taos. First time for the kids and we had a blast, learned and saw a lot during the trip. The guides were all friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend it.

Very good course for a beginner. The water was low during this excursion making the course more technical, but there still was plenty of action to keep you going.

Even though the river was fairly low, we had an excellent trip through the racecourse. We used New Wave Rafting and fortunately ended up with just the two of us and the guide in the raft. Because of this we did not get stuck like many of the others. All the rafts do the same run, so I would imagine... More

Took my daughter and her family on the racecourse with Los Rios River Runners. Her children who were 10 and 8 at the time (but almost time for their birthdays) and her fiancé had never been. The water was extremely low which made it more difficult but more fun. She and her fiancé joined the "river club" but was easily... More

Had a great time and super knowledgable guide (Evan). We used Cottam's and were very pleased with the safety and service. The river is low, not scary at all--highly recommend!
