We went on the The Racecourse and it was amazing! We learned so much from our bus driver and our rafting guide Sam was very informative about the area. It was honestly a perfect half day trip. You had to be at the dock at 845AM which you then drive for an 1 hour to the river, you get 2... More

We are so happy we booked with this company as had a fabulous time. Damon was our guide and he was superb. Nick and Jake were in the other 2 rafts. They also were excellent, but Damon, the tour leader was exceptional in all aspects. Two things to mention. We were going on to Taos after the rafting so drove... More

I was a little concerned with how this trip was going to turn out after I encountered the payment office. Russell's customer service was very lacking. He acted as you were causing him extra effort if you had question or needed to purchase an item. When the actual rafting trip began we had a GREAT time. Our guide Damon was... More

We didn't know that you should make a reservation in advance and this family of four just showed up 20 minutes prior to the trip. The manager called a guide on his day off and Nick was there in just a few minutes. None of the staff complained about loading the extra raft and delaying the trip. The drive to... More

A really wonderful experience with a great team! Because the river was flowing fast in June they took us further up than normal for the half day. We had an absolutely fantastic time going down the Rapids. The staff are super helpful and friendly and most of all they know what they are doing - which is important on white... More

We went rafting with Santa Fe rafting with a group of 17 people. We were nervous at first because the owner (I think his name is Russell) isn't the friendliest over the phone. We didn't know if we were going to be in a situation where we didn't feel safe. Once the adventure started, we couldn't feel any different. Luckily... More
