We took the 1/2 day Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip. Everything was great, our guide was Preston, he was very knowledgeable about the area and did an excellent job guiding us. Next time we will do the Royal Gorge trip for some bigger rapids.

So much fun for experienced and inexperienced rafters. Preston and Mikey were very helpful for two 13 year old girls! The shuttle to the drop spot is only about a 15 minute ride. Water was chilly but you get used to it.

Absolutely the best operation I have experienced. Even the bus ride was entertaining. Easily worth every penny and the drive out. If you want a beginner experience, or a more advanced run these guys have you covered. Will see them again on my next trip to Colorado

We were all rafting newbies and we all had an absolute blast! Mikey was a great guide and I hope he is still there next time for us to request when we go back. That may have been our first rafting experience but it won’t be our last. Thanks for a great time River Runners!
