A group of eight friends, including four who have never been rafting before, went rafting with Royal Gorge. We had the time of our lives! The company is professional and gave us excellent training beforehand that was informative but also funny. The equipment fit all of our varied sizes, from petite to extra tall. The guides were focused and knew... More

The zip lining was great and the free fall at the end was daunting. The only negative I have is that we should have had a video of the free fall if not even a pic would have been great.

Were glad you survived the free fall at the end of our Extreme Zip Line Course! It's definitely not for the faint of heart. Although we do not provide video of the tours, our photographers usually take photos from start to finish of your adventures. We apologize for not getting shots of the free fall. If you would like to... More

I just recently moved to Denver CO and some family and friends came to visit from OK. We wanted them to do something fun and different! We got that and more. We had guides Eddie and J (red headed guy w beard) sorry don't remember his name. Could not have asked for better guys or guides...we laughed some much. I... More

First time water rafting and it was so much fun. Was scared out of my mind but it wasn't as bad. The views while rafting were great and our leader also had a great personality and knowledge of the area and it's history. I definitely recommend coming here. We had a group of 8 split into two boats. Was just... More

My mom, sister and I went with 4 kids aged 10 and 8. We were a little nervous with the kids but our guide was amazing! We felt very safe and confident with her guidance. The kids had an experience they will never forget!

We can't say enough wonderful things about our experience zip lining. We visited off peak season so the weather was perfect (not terribly hot) and there were no crowds. We basically had a private tour. Our guides Natalie and James were excellent. Funny and relaxed but very professional and put us at ease as we scaled some hills and went... More

You finally did it! You went zip lining in Colorado! That's great! Now you see how much fun zipping can be. We find that the people who are most nervous about zip lining tend to relax and enjoy the trip after the first line or two when they see how much fun it is. Chainsaw and Heather are quite the...

I have rafted with this group twice this summer. Both times were fantastic! The guides are super patient, fun and adventuresome! A special thanks Mike Gamboni (July 4th weekend) and Ty (Monday 9/26)! Also zipped with this same company last spring. Excellant experience for my family and I, thanks to Nat and Shannon!!

Great experience. Both Eddie and Montana were excellent guides explaining all aspects of the zip lining experience in a professional manner while at the same time adding an element of humor to help set the zippers at ease. CAUTION!!! Eddie has lots of jokes that will have you groaning...just kidding..about the groaning, he did have a plethora of jokes. Highly... More
