Rafting the Royal Gorge was such an adventure. Our guide, Ryan, led us down the river with expertise and gave us such great knowledge and information all along the way. We have rafted Tennessee and North Carolina rivers in the past, but this is our first out West and the Arkansas River didn't disappoint. We had just the right amount... More

I have three boys ages 19,15 and 11. My eleven year old wasn't too thrilled about rafting. The sales person showed us a video (which is on their portal) where you can see young kids rafting. That video convinced my kid so we were all in. This is one of the cheapest tours but the quality is also very good.... More

This was my favorite thing we did while visiting. Allen was a great guide, full of fun facts and humorous too 😊 Everything was well organized especially for a first time rafter. Loved seeing the action pics back at the drop off. Only drawback is that they do not offer lockers for your belongings. Otherwise great.

Took the Bighorn Canyon trip with my mom, teenage son and 5 year old daughter and everyone had a wonderful time. The staff was friendly and efficient from check-in to the time we left. Our guide, Sara, was super friendly, encouraging and knowledgable and safely guided us down the river. We couldn't have asked for a better guide! I was... More

He really added much value, adventure and pleasure to our experience. He also knew all the history of the course we rafted which added an interesting plus.... More

We did the combination whitewater rafting and zip-lining. Our guide on the raft (nicknamed Cheers) was incredibly good. The food at the on-site restaurant was also very good. We did the Classic zip-line course in the afternoon. Guides Brian M and Kennedy were great and the crazy bearded photographer dude that followed us along for a while was hilarious. I... More

The reviews our not wrong. From the very first phone calls asking questions to making the reservations, the customer service was first rate. The guide took care of my family of 5 and prepping us for our adventure. He was very patient with my girls, 13, 11, and 9 and made it fun for all of us. My girls still... More
