“FANATASTIC time!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

A great rafting adventure and experience. Kate was our tour guide and did a super job of guiding us down the river. She was energetic, enthusiatic, and a pleasure to be with. All the guides in our outing (there were four of them) did a great job and all people in the boats in our outing had a wonderful time. This company was one of the best, most organized, and well prepared ones that I have rafted with and highly recommend them for anyone considering a rafting trip down the Arkansas river.

It's a pleasure to hear you enjoyed your trip so much! We have a wonderful staff that works hard so you can focus on enjoying the experience. It's nice to see happy guests like you have a wonderful time on our trips! Kate will get a pat on the back for a job well done, and perhaps we'll see you another time, Glen! Thanks for your review!

“Fantastic as always!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We traveled down the Arkansas River with Echo Canyon expeditions 15 yrs. ago and just finished another fabulous trip thru the Royal Gorge. Everyone was very professional and talented in guiding us thru the class 3 & 4 rapids. Our guide Dan Neuman, was excellent!

Edie, what an honor that you recalled Echo from your trip years ago and joined us again! Thank you for being a loyal rafting guest. I'll bet you noticed some changes to our facility since you last rafted with us! I'm happy to hear your guide Newman took care of your group. We'll see you next time, and I hope it isn't 15 years before your next raft trip!

Thanks for your time in offering this review Loran! I've heard a lot of great reviews involving Ruzic, so he obviously needs to be commended for a job well done. I'm pleased to hear you had a great time rafting with us. If you make it out from Florida again please visit us again. Thanks Loran!

“What a ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed this experience. We have two teenagers and took the Royal Gorge half-day trip. It was a great "bonding" experience for everyone. Our guide Ashley was super. Definitely a memorable experience.

Glad we could make it a memorable trip for your family! The Royal Gorge is where it's at for adventure seekers and those in good physical condition. Not to mention a great way to get some energy out of a couple of teenagers! I'll pass thanks along to your guide Ashly, and we hope to see you again another time AbileneMom!

“Excellent rafting trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We were 1st time rafters, and Echo Canyon Rafting made it a memorable one for us. We rafted Class 2 & Class 3 rapids on the Arkansas river in the Big Horn Sheep Canyon. It is perfect for newbies and those who are water-shy! My husband is not a swimmer and that was my concern. He did great, and the rapids we chose are perfect for those who are poor swimmers or no swimmers at all! We had a fantastic guide who gave us all the rules and tips for a good rafting experience, although she spoke real fast!! But, once we got on the river we could not wait to get more of the rapids. Once it was all over, we left yearning for more! Next time, it will be Class 3 & Class 4 rapids!!.......Chitra, Sugar Land, TX

Chitra, It sounds like it was a fantastic first time experience for your family, and we're so happy we could be a part of it! When you plan your next raft trip with us you should consider June or early July to see bigger whitewater. I'd still recommend your husband sticks to class III since he's a non-swimmer. The class IV rapids can be a little daunting for someone without swimming ability; it could scare your guide a bit, too! Thanks for your review and we can't wait to raft with your crew again.
