89 YEAR OLD Adventurer well taken care of!
Jul 2021
This company is beyond amazing! My 89 year old dad wanted to do another rafting trip, ever since he did one 4 years ago in Montana. I called around to different companies and Journey Quest had just what we were looking for and the date as well! Sara was so friendly and helpful on the phone while taking our reservation and was just as excited about my dad coming as I was. Today was the day and could not have gone any better! Mark was our guide and he was wonderful with us and my dad. We loved hearing about the story of Journey Quest and grateful to support a company with strong Christian beliefs. Couldn't ask for anything more! We will be back again! HIGHLY recommend! THANK YOU SARA, MARK, and amazing CREW!! Y'all ROCK!

Wonderful!!
Jul 2021 • Family
This was a super fun experience and a must do! This was the first time our family of five went rafting with the youngest being 13yrs old. Kirt was our guide and he was fun, made us feel safe and communicated excellent. Sarah was a superstar! Sarah changed our rafting dates after I had made a big mistake and accidentally booked rafting for the wrong date. The team is incredible and we left colorado with wonderful memories! ❤️ Patty, Edith, Devin, Ian and Sarah

Fun whitewater rafting adventure
We wanted a half day, moderate level white water rafting experience and this was just that. We lucked out too with an awesome guide, Asa. He had a great attitude, was very experienced, and made the adventure so much fun! The day we went the rapids were at 2s and 3s- which wasn’t too rough and certainly not dull- it was just right. And thanks to Asa and his skill, even lighter rapids became an adventure. We would highly recommend this activity.

A Highlight of our Trip to CO
Jul 2021
Everyone at Journey Quest was so pleasant and helpful. We took a trip with my family including 2 small children (5 & 7) and they made us all feel very safe while giving us an exciting experience. The woman that checked us in was so accommodating (especially in the Colorado heat), our guides Nate & Emiline were so fun, well informed and friendly. They made the journey very enjoyable and created memories we won't forget. Even the bus driver was great & took nice pictures. I would definitely recommend this company for a trip down the Arkansas River!!

Amazing group!
Jun 2021
This was by far our favorite activity of all in our week in Colorado (Colorado Springs, Estes Park, and Denver). We were not sure what to expect and honestly only even booked the trip, because how do you come to Colorado and not go white water rafting? I spent quite a bit of time researching several different companies and settled on Journey Quest because of their mission/vision and we wanted to support a smaller family run business. It was perfect! Nathanael was so knowledgeable and helpful and made us feel like we really knew what we were doing (and trust me - we didn't!). This was the perfect size trip for us and we hope to be back some day. If you're on the fence about rafting - or about which company to chose - do it and go with Journey Quest. You won't be disappointed. (And the pictures were amazing - buy the package!)

Excellent rafting experience!
Jun 2021 • Family
We thoroughly enjoyed this half-day adventure! All the staff were very friendly and helpful! Our guide, Ricky, was phenomenal! Very friendly, great with our 3 kids who had never rafted before, and obviously very experienced! Our 8 year old had the option of paddling or sitting in the middle of the raft and not paddling, which was really nice for children who may be nervous. We would highly recommend Echo Canyon!

Amazing Summer Adventure with JourneyQuest!
This is the most amazing adventure company on the Arkansas River! Of the 48, only two are faithful, and only one-JourneyQuest, makes your experience linked to devotionals, Bible studies and has a staff dedicated to complimenting your faith while enjoying the Adventure! The costs are very, very reasonable, JourneyQuest ensure you have everything you will need and if you are a Church/Youth Group, Trail Life USA, American Heritage Girls, Royal Rangers, Royal Ambassadors, Calvin Cadets...really any Christian or Conservative Group or Family wanting to enjoy a safe, faithfully focused experience while supporting a company that loves God JourneyQuest is the company to choose!

Only way to take in Colorado mountain beauty!
Jun 2021 • Friends
The people there are amazing and super friendly. They had their hands full with a raft full of first timers. The owners of the company were our guides, such great people. We are planning a trip with them again but with our young kids next time. Probably the best way to see some of the Colorado mountains.

Great experience
Jun 2021 • Family
We had a great time floating Bighorn. Our guide, Brooke, was well skilled and knowledgeable about the river we floated. She trained us well in what to do and how to paddle on her commands. Nathaniel did a professional job of training us on what to do in the event of an emergency. Luckily, because the other raft we were with had some “swimmers”. Brooke immediately instructed us on how to help and those who were throw out of their raft knew what to do to remain as safe as possible. Brooke did not hesitate to do what was needed to help out with the utmost concern for the swimmers. Even with that, we had a great time and would do it again in a heartbeat with JourneyQuest!!
