“So much fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Jimmy was a great guide! He even suggested a great restaurant "Maria's" and it was amazing. The trip started off a little rocky when we were told the wrong meeting spot on the Rio Grande. We figured it out quickly and were able to meet our group just in time.

Their equipment was great, Jimmy did a great job of teaching us how to raft as a group (there were 6 of us). The snack at the end of the half day was delicious as well. Peanut Butter and Salsa on a tortilla chip...you have to try it. It's their signature snack at Santa Fe Rafting!

“Good Time With Great People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

When you want to experience river rafting in the Southwest, these are your people! The business is well organized, and the staff are friendly and easy going. Plan for a long drive in the vans, but this outfit makes the trip worthwhile! Minimal stress, maximum enjoyment!

“Well organized and good guides”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We rafted with low water so the 6 mule stretch we ran on the Rio Grande was a bit technical in spots. That made it a lot of fun! The scenery is great and all of the guides we had for a group of 40+ were very good and very friendly. They are safety conscious with extra guides in kayaks to support the raft guides in the case of an emergency. I recommend this rafting operation.

“Awesome experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We've always wanted to do this and what better place than on the Rio Grande! Our guide Blake was knowledgable and engaging, keeping us safe, happy and in the raft! In August the racecourse is a great rub for a beginner...nice and mild with a few exciting moments, but nothing really dangerous. This was a great experience, for two 50+ parents, and our 18 year old son! Highly recommend!

“Awesome trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Excellent rafting experience!!!! The guides are informative, safe, experienced, and funny. My 10 yr. old said it was the best time she has ever had! Looking forward to making it a yearly trip! Well worth the time and money. We even discovered our new favorite snack...river Thai!
