We went our for the half day tour down the Colorado River. James was our tour guide, and he was absolutely fantastic. He was funny, informative, and affable. He showed us an amazing and fun time. The sights on this tour were absolutely stunning. The river was relaxing, and then when we hit the rapids it was very fun. James did a great job of getting us to work as a team in order to get through the rapids and down the river as easily as possible. We also played fun raft games in the still water. We can not recommend this trip enough, and hopefully you are lucky enough to get James as a guide, although every guide seemed to be fun, professional, and while they took their job seriously they are out there to show the guest a very fun time. We highly recommend this company, as you will have an amazing time.

The trip operation did a great job managing the group with COVID 19 restrictions. The employees all wore masks and we were distanced by group on the bus out. Our guide Rachel was amazing. She was friendly and knowledgeable and really added to our experience. I highly recommend this rafting group

We were greeted quickly and fitted for a personal flotation devices and completion of the paperwork was easy. We loaded onto a bus and even though there was no air-conditioning it was not miserably hot. The tour guide, Tate, was very entertaining with stories and pointing out rocks in interesting shapes along the 45 minute drive to the drop site.

I feel like we had a very good introduction to safety in the raft as well as how to use the paddle. Even though the river was on the slow side, I never felt like we had to paddle all the time. We got to take it at a nice and relaxed pace and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. There were plenty of opportunities to get in the water and cool off.

Our guide, Tate was very friendly, competent and fun and made our trip very special.

I never write reviews but felt the need to write a positive review for our experience doing a half day rafting trip from Moab. The staff were excellent- I usually feel intimidated doing sporty outdoor tour activities but the entire staff made everyone feel at ease and excited to get on the water. The rafting was class I/II so not very challenging and river itself was low but the staff made it fun at all times with corny jokes on the bus ride to the drop site to other things during rafting itself when there were slower points.

At the end of the trip there was some issue with the bus along with another problem in town with power that led to a gridlock and about 45 minute delay of our return to Moab. Not the best situation but it was hot and we just stayed in the river swimming. The staff were great in keeping us entertained during the delay and the unbelieveable part was how the owner of the company took ownership for the delay and refunded the full amount. Things happen and buses can break with any company. I dont think many if any other tour companies would handle it the way red river did.

Initially was a little disappointed the trip was class 1-2 but that disappointment was very short lived. Jake (from State Farm), our captain/guide was masterful in steering us into the rapids, definitely making them feel more like a class 2. All in all it was a fun fun time... Highly recommended doing it.

Spent the afternoon on the river with Seth as our guide. They did a great job with managing Covid guidelines.....we had a raft with just our family & Seth (guide). Masks were worn on the bus as well as social distancing.

Seth made us comfortable from the start. He was knowledgeable about rafting and the area. He made it fun for all of us. He did a great job keeping everyone happy. Overall a great trip with a friendly guide.

Thanks RR....we are hooked!!

Well organized rafting trip with very kind and entertaining river guides that were funny and shared much information about the surroundings of the journey. Luke was our guide and was very enjoyable. He made us feel safe and shared lots of great stories along the way.

We had never white water rafted before, but were looking for something adventurous to do while in Moab. Red River Adventures came highly recommended, and did not disappoint. My family and I (which included two children ages 13 and 10) had an amazing time on the river. Our guide Brian was knowledgeable, and funny. He worked really well with my daughters and kept them engaged and safe. The actual rafting part was about 3 hours. We went through 4-5 rapids which were about Level 1-2. I would highly recommend if you are looking for some adventure on your trip.

The guides for our trip, Kevin and Noah, we a lot of fun. They kept us amused with fun facts both on the trip to and from the launch as well as on the trip itself. The half day was perfect if you only want a few hours on the water. There were 4 rapid sections and plenty of float time

My first time rafting. Enjoyed it very much. Was relaxing and fun for me. All of the guides and bus driver were very informative and entertaining both going and coming. The rafting portion of the trip was good for someone like me who never done anything like it before. It has me wanting to do more rafting in the future. To me it was worth the price.
