Several years ago, my church in Colorado Springs decided to make rafting a summer event. We chose Journey Quest (VFH at that time) and had a blast. We did the half day trip that ends just before the Royal Gorge, and it was perfect for our mixed group. With kids from 13 years old through adventurous grandparents, we wanted something everyone would enjoy; Journey Quest delivered a safe, entertaining, and exciting voyage each time.
Who doesn't want to say "yeah, I've been white water rafting." but how often can you say "I went white water rafting and pushed grandpa out of the boat"? Now, you can! (as long as you take the trip that includes the safe-for-being-pushed-from-boat swimming area:) The guides at Journey Quest were always friendly ,and safety focused. The trip we take includes class three rapids that were occasionally class four depending on the condition of the river that day; people didn't always stay in the boat when they were supposed to. My own mother fell out during a rapid named Sharks Tooth. However, the guides are always watchful and got her back in the boat immediately. Even after 10+ trips of about twenty people each we have never had a serious injury.
The church, as a group, has gone back every summer for about 15 years now. Sometimes the weather was rainy and sometimes the river was lower or higher, but each trip was special. I would definitely recommend this company.
