On Saturday, June 27, 2015 we Classic Ziplined with Heather and Natalie in the morning and Rafted with Dallas in the afternoon. Heather and Natalie were excellent, blending a combination of instruction and humor with our group's experience. We highly recommend asking for them.

We were originally scheduled to go through the Royal Gorge but the water level was too high. We were instead taken on a 16 mile trip through the lower Bighorn area by our guide, Dallas. There were seven rafts going on the trip with RGR. At Three Rocks, three of the seven rafts capsized but the RGR team was quick to instruct the other four rafts to pick up swimmers and gear. We regrouped downstream at Salt Lick and only one person elected to not go on.

While I wish none of our group had earned a spot on the Arkansas River swim team I highly recommend Dallas and the team at RGR. We had a blast.

PS - the food at Whitewater Bar and Grill was outstanding.

We came out to Royal Gorge on Monday June 29th for our afternoon white water rafting tour after a friend suggested them. Wow was our friend right! Our raft guide, Jon, was also the leader that day and he was engaging and funny as well as personable! He didn't just raft he also told us historic stories of the landscape and wildlife. He really helped kick off our family vacation as there were 9 of us on the trip! Some from Colorado and some from Iowa and Wisconsin. We will absolutely be back for not only more rafting but also to try out zip lining! Thank you so much Royal Gorge and Jon for making our family vacation unforgettable! -The Paxstons

Cody gave us everything the river could handle. Made us feel secure and took the time to explain things about the river and the experience we never before encountered. Will defiantly book again and will request Cody specifically.

This river is a ton of fun to raft on! The water is really high right now so there is a lot of great white water to hit on the way down.
Guides are awesome and so fun! They really know what customer service is all about!
Shout out to Ernst our guide that we had! Knowledgeable, funny, and charming!

We're so happy to hear that you had such an amazing experience rafting with Taylor and Michelle!!! They are great guides, and we're very fortunate to have them as a part of our team.

Yes! Included in any of our rafting trips, all the gear is included (this can sometimes be $25+ additional with other companies in the area). We would love to have you back for another adventure through our awesome whitewater soon, or even a thrilling zip line trip!

See you soon!
-Sydnee, Guest Services
