My family and I (wife and 4 kids, 20, 17, 15 and 12) had the absolute best time at Royal Gorge Rafting. We had a great guide, Matt. Such a blast! Highly recommend.

My trip for the Royal Gorge White Water Rafting was great. Our tour guide was Grahm. He was a great guy and very fun too be around. He made our trip well worth it!

20 year old daughter & I did the full day tour ending a little beyond the Royal Gorge Bridge. River side lunch was one of our better meals on our trip (chicken fajitas, guacamole, lots of fresh fruit & grandmas special sauce). Don, our guide, was great would recommend asking for him. The morning portion of the trip was mostly 2-3 level rapids which was a good way for us flat landers to prepare for the level 3-4 rapids in the afternoon. The scenery alone is worth the trip!

You summed up the Royal Gorge Full Day rafting trip quite perfectly! The morning section in the Bighorn Sheep Canyon is a great warm up for the thrilling, action-packed class III/IV rapids in the afternoon in the gorgeous Royal Gorge. We introduced the delicious freshly-grilled chicken fajita lunch this season to the full day Royal Gorge trip and it has been very well received. We're glad you enjoyed it as well! Don is a great guide with numerous years experience on the Arkansas River and it's awesome that you had a great time with him!

A big thank you to you and your daughter for rafting with us and we hope to see you again soon!

My son, daughter and I spent a fantastic morning rafting down the Arkansas River through the Royal Gorge. Everyone we had contact with was very professional, enthusiastic and capable during the entire time; from signing in, gearing up, on the river and reviewing the day, to waving goodbye at the end of the day. Our guide on the river was Dallas Haley, a perfect gentleman, knowledgeable, funny and helpful. We made a couple of new friends and we promise to return!

Rafting in the morning through the Royal Gorge is a wonderful experience! It warms up very quickly and before long you are immersed in breath-taking scenery followed by adrenaline-raising class III/IV whitewater.

We are glad to hear that our staff was both courteous and professional from the start to the end of your day. We do have a great team here! Dallas Haley is a Canon City local and one of our senior guides . His knowledge of the area and experience on the Arkansas River make us proud to have him on our team.

Thank you for rafting with us and we look forward to having you visit us again soon!
