My wife, 3 daughters and I took the Royal Gorge raft trip and the Classic Zip Line Tour. Our river guide was Layton and our zip line guides were Justice and Dexter. I mistakenly showed up a day earlier than my reservation, but they accommodated us anyway. The gorge was closed so they took us and several other rafts to another part of the river that had Class IV and V rapids. While we enjoyed ourselves, the reason for my Excellent rating is their focus on keeping us safe.
We took a nasty a spill in a dangerous part of the river and I was impressed and grateful for how all the guides immediately went into rescue mode. The rescue kayak gathered up my wife and two of my daughters and took them safety. My 3rd daughter was also pulled to safety on another raft. Our guide somehow got back on top of the raft, flipped it back upright and dragged me aboard.
While rafting may never be risk free. I can say with confidence that the guides took our safety seriously.
Justice and Dexter also did a great job on our zip line tour. We had a lot fun.More
