Our guides were very nice, informative, entertaining and they worked very hard to ensure a good time was had by all. We had a young boy in the boat and they made sure he got to do some fun activities. Rapids are pretty easy for the racecourse but still challenging. Great trip. Felt very safe and would do it again.... More

We enjoyed a very fun day on the Rio Grande. The trip was just as advertised and everything went as scheduled: Met at their convenient location in Santa Fe. Easy check in, form signing, meet the guides, load into the van for the ride to the river entry point. Sam our guide provided interesting information about the area and sights... More

What a great adventure for the day. We had an awesome guide named "Artie". With his years of experience and fun spirit....he made our rafting adventure so much fun. This was my first time white water rafting.....we did the race course and the rapids were perfect. This course was great for the inexperienced. I would definitely do it again!

Took our family (5) & brother-in-law's family (5) on a whitewater rafting trip with Santa Fe Rafting company. They had been overbooked, but still made every effort to accommodate us. They actually brought in a driver/raft person (Isaac) from a competing raft operation. The employees that we met (Sam & Isaac) - all around - were fantastic. The experience overall... More

My wife and I recently booked a half-day trip with Santa Fe Rafting on their "Racecourse" route on the Rio Grande river. Our experience was not terrible, but it was far from the best adventure we've ever had. The whole trip last a little over five hours, but almost three of those were spent driving in a van to get...

I had a great trip down the Rio Grande with the Santa Fe Rafting Company. The water was a bit calmer this time of year however it was still entertaining and fun. My guide, Anna, was very knowledgable of the waters and knew all the tips and tricks around the rocks. I enjoyed the half day rafting trip, just long... More

Definitely one of the highlights of our recent trip to Santa Fe. We did the half-day "Racecourse" trip. The whole thing was well organized, and the guides were knowledgeable and very good, especially our guide, Sam. He told us a lot about the sites we were seeing on the drive up to Taos and made things very comfortable and friendly... More

A family group, including a slightly nervous 9 year old, came out of the water after a 2.5 hour raft (1+ hour journey by car each way made for a fun 5 hour trip) saying unanimously that it was the best fun of a trip that has included mountain biking, zip wiring and national park visiting. The guides are incredibly... More

Our group of four adults really enjoyed our white water rafting experience with this company. Being able to drop one’s car in downtown Santa Fe and then be driven about one hour upstream is convenient. The safety tips from Jimmy Josh were thorough, humorous and, for potential “swimmers,” appropriately useful. Our guide was Sam, a teacher, by profession. He was... More
