Can't say enough good things about this place! I had never been rafting before so I really didn't know what to expect. I've been on float trips before down a lazy river or 2, that in no way prepared me for the excitement we experienced! The guides make sure you are all geared up and give you the "safety talk"...

A must see and do if you're near Canon City, CO. The Royal Gorge Zipline and rafting is a must. Highly recommend the Gold package.

What an amazing day with friends! You may be a teeny bit apprehensive if you've never done this, we hadn't, but the guides made this trip so much fun and put you at ease with the first joke! Shannon and Montana are a fun duo! My bucket overflowed today!

We went rafting and zip lining for the first time. The people at Royal Gorge are amazing and they made the day so much fun. The guides are all very safe and knowledgeable . Chainsaw Vanessa and Dan are the best guides ever!

Jorrey, Henry and Ellis were amazing guides to lead most of my group on their first rafting trip! Very helpful and knowledge about all aspects of rafting and the river. Would recommend to anyone that wants a great time for a great price!
