      9- Classic Zipline
      Brought my kids to do something they would remember. I originally thought I got tickets for the gorge zipline but I am so happy that I got these instead. This experience was amazing! Tarzan and Dylan were patient and super awesome. They made me and my family feel comfortable and confident. My youngest is 12 and they were great with her. I am so glad we did this with them as our guides. Oh… They both had muscles bigger than the mountain and that made us feel even more safe and secure. lol. Fun guides! Tips: Wear comfortable shoes there are small hikes in between lines. Don’t bring any bags or things that you don’t want in your way or to carry the entire way. If you bring your phone make sure you have deep pockets to keep it in because you will be wearing gloves, hard hats and gear. Dress for the weather. Tarzan and Dylan Thank you. You made this experience the best for us. -Nicolette

      Third time back on Extreme Zip and we'll be back again
      We did the Extreme Zip Course at Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours-it was our third time going there even though we live over 1,000 miles away. Years later our kids (and we) still want to return because they know it will be a great experience, incredible fun, and the staff are outstanding! Tarzan and Kenny make what is already a can't-miss experience (zip lines that are over steep canyons, fast, and long, in addition to the breathtaking view of the area) and make it something you will remember forever. The best measure is-we will back again! Thanks Kenny and Tarzan!

      1/2 day raft trip in sept
      We went on the 1/2 day rafting trip on 9/22 with Donny as our guide. It was a fantastic trip. Water levels are lower in September, but that didn’t prevent us from experiencing exciting rapids. Donny was a fantastic guide. He gave excellent instructions and we always felt safe. Highly recommend. It was a great morning!!! Perfect ending to our Colorado adventure!

      Great times. Great people.
      I had a magnanimous time with my friend Kenny at the Royal Gorge Rafting and Zip Line tour. We booked the Gold package that included rafting, a delicious lunch, zip lining, and it was totally worth it. The staff were friendly and professional, and they made sure we were always safe and comfortable. The rafting was exhilarating, as we navigated the rapids while taking in the breathtaking scenery and water. Adam was our guide, and he was beyond skilled and funny. He told us stories about the river, the wildlife, and also gave us tips on how to not join the Royal Gorge Rapids Swim Team, lol. We had a lot of laughs and splashes along the way. The zip lining was amazing, as we soared through the air and felt the adrenaline rush. I couldn’t ask for better guides than Lindsey and Siobhan. We laughed, cried, and reminisced about times past as we zipped from one platform to another. The views were breathtaking as we were coasting through the air. It was an unforgettable experience meeting and experiencing this with these two amazing people. I highly recommend the Royal Gorge Rafting and Zip Line Tour to anyone looking for some fun and adventure. It was one of the best days I had in a while, and I can’t wait to go back. Thank you all for making it such a phenomenal time that I will cherish this memory.

      Exciting, incredible views, well managed, and fun!!!
      The half-day Royal Gorge rafting trip was PERFECT for me and my boyfriend, who are both first time rafters. Our guide, Woody, surpassed all expectations. Having rafted all over the world at the most difficult rapids, he made us feel incredibly safe and provided us with easy to understand instructions. Bonus points for his great jokes! The rapids were challenging enough to be exciting without scaring us first timers. 1000% will be back during high water season to try some crazier rapids! Thanks to the whole crew!

      AMAZIIIINGGGG
      We rafted at Royal Gorge in Canon City and had Jeff as our guide. Needless to say, having 5 women on their annual girls trip was a handful , but Jeff handled it like a PRO!! We gave him a few laughs, but he gave us the raft trip of a lifetime!! If you are thinking of rafting the Royal Gorge I definitely recommend Royal Gorge Rafting and ask for Jeff!! So fun!!!!

      Amazing Experience!!
      We had a great time on this trip. The river is a blast, lots of twists and turns as well as rocks to navigate. Challenging but fun. Our guide Andrew was excellent, both in trip guidance and information about the river and surrounding areas. We will be back next year for the high water June trip!

      Amazing experience
      We did the extreme zip lining and white water rafting. Our guides Tarzan, Siobhan, and Virginia were literally the BEST!! We had requested Tarzan because he was so awesome when we had him as a guide in May. We will be back to do the all day rafting tour and will ask for Virginia for sure.

    we had Tangles and Jake for ziplining on Thursday 6/2/22. Tangles remembered everyones name after hearing it once, she was incredible at making everyone feel welcomed and safe. Jake was easy to talk to and super chill. Both incredible guides that made the day amazing
    We had Mike and Joey for rafting on Friday 6/3/22. It was my first time rafting and I was super nervous, he made our rafting experience easy but not super boring. Joey was super fun to talk with and both of them did an excellent job of making us feel safe and welcomed. We were the vikings and we stayed ahead of all the other rafters most of the trip, thanks to Mike and Joey.

    Definitely recommend, the activities were so fun and our guides made everything so much better. For the vikings!

    I brought my teenage son here for Father's Day.

    Shelbi was a great guide and kept the trip fun.

    Griz was my son's favorite.

    The facilities were great for a full day of activity.

    They bus you to the Raft and shuttle you to the Zips with lunch at an entertaining restaurant on premises.

    We had a blast from the time we pulled up until the time we left. This experience was the highlight of our trip to Colorado.

    We had a great time! We did the zip, raft, and lunch combo and none were a disappointment. Started out the morning by doing 9 lines of zipline adventure. They ranged slow to fast and included breathtaking views. Our guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and alot of fun. Shoutout to Sammie and Lindsey. Following our zip adventure, we went to their own whitewater bar and grill for our included lunch. We just thought it would be the usual sandwich and chips free meal deal, but we were wrong! It was great bbq style tavern food. Their brisket sandwiches and baked beans were awesome! And we should know being from Texas. Following lunch, we had a little time to kill, so we spent it lounging in their very fun outdoor lounge area which includes games, volleyball, and even hammocks for a little siesta. Finally we went on the Bighorn Sheep raft tour down the Arkansas river. Our guide was super knowledgeable and really made us feel safe. Shoutout to Matt! We had a great trip down river over lots of rapids and nobody fell out! All in all, this was a fun filled day of adventure and would highly recommend to anyone!

    We went rafting with Royal Gorge Rafting the end of May 2023. It was so much fun! Our guide, Tim Gregg, was great! He knew what he was doing and was very fun. Our family of 6 went, kids ages 7 to 14. Despite the cooler temps and cold water, the wet suits they provided really did keep us warm. We have gone rafting before in class 2, but this class 3 was much more fun. RGR took great action photos of our raft trip from the banks that you can purchase anytime up to a year later. My husband and two of the kids also did the zip-lining that morning and enjoyed that too. If you are hungry afterwards, the BBQ restaurant located at RGR was delicious with tons for the kids to do. We would definitely raft again with RGR and might do an adults only trip later this summer to do some class 4.

    We visited these fine folks on vacation with our 7 year old son, and wanted to find something family friendly, but still exciting. So glad we found Royal Gorge Rafting and Zip alone Tours. We did the Big Horn Sheep 1:30 rafting tour. We had Annie on the bus ride over and she was hilarious and very entertaining. Our guide, Danny, who used to be a swimmer at Florida State University (so you are in great hands), was fantastic with the kids and very skilled guide. I ended up getting tossed out of the boat in the middle of a class III rapid, and he was “Johnny On The Spot” with helping me and getting me back to safety. If you are in Canon City/Colorado Springs area, traveling with smaller children (At least 6 years of age) and are looking for a great white water boatin’ (As Annie would say) adventure, then these are your guys and gals!

    We had a group of 13; including 7 grandchildren from ages 15 to 7. Our whitewater guides Conner and Garret were exceptional. They not only kept us safe but we’re also very personable and informative. It was well worth it.
    On our zip line tour we had Emm, Rick, Brylee (? spelling), and Kayla. Once again they did a great job of making our adventure both safe and extremely fun. Our grandkids (as well as their parents) are still talking about this trip.

    We had the best experience both zip lining and rafting Big Horn Ridge.
    Adam and Ricky were fantastic zip line guides on the classic course for our family of four- none of whom had ever ziplined before. They made us feel safe all the while having a great time.

    Johnny was also a fantastic guide for our newbie rafting family. We felt completely safe while having a great ride down the level 2-3 rapids.

    The customer service at the shops was great as it was at the White Water restaurant which had good food, although a bit pricey.

    Staying at the yurts was really fun. It was a bit frustrating that their little store was closed and the bathrooms needed a few more supplies, but the yurts were clean and comfortable and the river can’t be beat.

    Overall cannot recommend this place and experience more!

    We visited with our 7, 9, and 12 year olds and had a great time rafting and zip lining. Emily, our rafting guide was so personable and let our eldest, who loves rafting, help steer and guide at the end. She made the trip even more enjoyable - no one fell in. It was very doable for our group. Lunch was plentiful and good. Em and Kim, our zip lining guides were super patient and helpful with our youngest who needed some tandem rides. We got rain and thunder, which made our trip longer than usual but they were super patient and never rushed us. Overall, this was a wonderful day, and the warmth of the employees enhanced our experience. Highly recommend!

    Book it!!!! Book it!!! Book it!!! Like I said, do yourself and your family a favor and Book it! What a blast we had from start to finish. Josie was our guide on the rafting and he was hilarious and knowledgeable which made the trip fun for my 7 year old daughter who was terrified to even go. So thank you Josie. And then we went zip lining with Natalie and Meg and they were fantastic as well. Once again, my daughter had a blast zip lining with them. We made so many great memories today and I can’t thank our guides enough!

    Josi provided us with a blast of a time on the Arkansas! He made the trip fun and was extra helpful with our youngest rafter- we had some first timers and a couple that rafted before and it was a happy balance of moderate rapids with some nice down time. Great job to him and RG!
